WWE Tweaks the Rules for Next Weekends Championship Scrambles

Five days ago, WWE posted the rules for the Championship Scramble matches at Unforgiven on the WWE Fan Nation website. The rules, at the time, read as follows:

- The match has a 20-minute time limit. The champion and a randomly selected challenger will start the match, with a new challenger entering the match every five minutes.

- If a Superstar scores a pinfall or submission on any other Superstar in the match, he is declared the "temporary" champion for match purposes (and is not officially recognized as champion in the title history). He holds that designation until another Superstar scores a subsequent pinfall or submission on any other Superstar.

However, WWE.com has since changed the rules, and declared that "two randomly selected participants" will start the match, so the defending champion will not necessarily be in the ring for the full 20 minutes. Here are the new rules:

- The match has a 20-minute time limit. Two randomly selected participants will start the match, with a new challenger entering the match every five minutes.

- If a Superstar scores a pinfall or submission on any other Superstar in the match, he is declared the "interim" champion for match purposes (and is not officially recognized as champion in the title history). He holds that designation until another Superstar scores a subsequent pinfall or submission on any other Superstar.

- The last Superstar to earn a pinfall or submission within the time limit will be officially declared the World Heavyweight Champion.
