  • WWE RAW: SmackDown Live stars Roman Reigns, Kofi Kingston & Daniel Bryan gatecrash rival company; WATCH VIDEO

Vince McMahon kicked off Monday Night Raw this week, and it wasn't long before Vince announced the brand new "Wild Card Rule".

Now it appears that we might have an idea about their Raw counterparts and we know a few Raw names that can appear on SmackDown Live this week. We got to see two matches - Kofi Kingston vs. Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship and Roman Reigns vs.

Also, Smackdown star Roman Reigns competed in a Wrestlemania rematch against Drew McIntyre which ended in disqualification after Shane McMahon attacked Reigns.

Seeing the three blue brand members in the ring with him, Vince McMahon had an epiphany - The Wildcard Rule.

Facebook to roll out new 'Secret Crush' feature
Another idea involves "nudging" users to tone it down when they've just posted an inflammatory comment. The new Groups tab will also display a customized feed of activity across all the user's groups.

The changes were not only happening on the program, but also on WWE's digital platforms. Last week, WWE Raw posted their lowest non-holiday viewership numbers in history while SmackDown had its lowest viewership number since moving to Tuesdays.

Following Monday Night Raw, WWE clarified some of the rules, explaining that a limited number of Superstars from Raw or SmackDown would be invited to cross brand lines for one-night-only appearances, with unauthorized jumps to be penalized by fines or even potential firing.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, this move was made as WWE is feeling pressure to increase the ratings and wanted to add more star power to each show without scrapping the brand split entirely.

WWE has been facing outside pressure from NBCU and Fox to bring the ratings up.
