– The decision to put the World Heavyweight Championship on Chris Jericho was one that officials struggled with leading up to the main event at WWE’s Unforgiven pay-per-view. Other names that were discussed as possible Champions included Batista, Rey Mysterio and Shawn Michaels.
– Speaking of Unforgiven, WWE came up with the idea for the Champion Scramble matches just days before the SummerSlam pay-per-view. The original plan for RAW’s main event was a Fatal Four Way match between CM Punk, Batista, JBL and Kane. TNA announced a 4 Way main event for their No Surrender pay-per-view and WWE decided to come up with something different.
