The return of Taboo Tuesday, will we see? Its been 13 years the first Taboo Tuesday event took place!
WWE was reportedly looking to bring back some of their old pay-per-view events after the brand extension in 2016. Eventually we had seen the return of PPV”s like BackLash and No Mercy. We might see another old PPV concept, Taboo Tuesday being brought back, if this story from PWInsider is anything to go by.
The debut of the Taboo Tuesday was in October 2004 by WWE and it was held again in the following year. WWE rechristened it as Cyber Sunday, with the first one taking place in 2006 and the last in 2008 in Phoenix, Arizona, this was after the first two Taboo Tuesday shows.
Fans were allowed to vote online in order to determine certain aspects which could affect the outcome of a match such as what stipulation should a atchm have or which opponents a wrestler would face in the given match. This is what the pecularity of Taboo Tuesday/Cyber Sunday is.
With the United States Patent and Trademark office on 24th July, WWE has registered to trademark the phrase ‘Taboo Tuesday’ according to a report by the PWInsider. The following are the preferences:
