Who Really Come Up With the Scramble Concept? FCW Needs More Trainers?
Jason Powell of prowrestling.net is reporting that although Matt Striker credited Pat Patterson as the creator of the Championship Scramble matches, he is actually not the innovator of the idea. Patterson is said to have been a fan of the idea, as it had characteristics of the Royal Rumble, but the match itself has had variations of it performed long before WWE used it at Unforgiven.
FCW, the developmental territory for WWE, is said to be in need of more trainers. The feeling at this time is there are not enough trainers for all the talent that FCW currently has. Dusty Rhodes, who is head of creative down in FCW, is having a difficult time creating characters for all of the talent, however the conditions at the training facility have improved since working plumbing has been installed.
