  1. No Smackdown PPV between May 28th and September 29th, but two RAW events between July 14th and September 17th… the superstar shake up 2018 must be incredibly one sided

  2. So they promised us 19 PPVs, gave us 16, and now reducing it to 14…. even though they own the network and made more money through monthly subscriptions then they ever did with just PPV alone? makes no sense. More PPVs, more special events more everything… otherwise you’ll lose viewers guaranteed.

  3. Anyone notice that EVERY PPV is in the US? Nothing in Canada or Europe. There are some great cities that haven’t seen a PPV in ages. It’s a shame.

  4. Yes. Make the wrestlers work 350 days a year instead of 300. Take them away from their families so that they are compelled to entertain us. Smart!

  5. I didn’t say I want 50 more ppvs dummy. It’s the life they chose, and are paid well for that sacrifice so know your role and shut your mouth.

  6. The compromise would be to have more PPVs, but give the big names more time off. That would put more mid-card and non-titles matches into PPVs. Not necessarily a bad thing but more content and lower quality would be the likely outcome and that might not be what WWE are aiming for.

  7. As Money in the Bank is now joint, will we get 1 mens match (3 from each Raw/Smackdown) and same with the women? Or will it be 4 ladder matches? Men and women title for each respective show. The issue with joint ppvs, they tend to put most, if not all titles on line leaving non champs to compete in battle royal/squash match or pre show. Scrap the universal title, have just the wwe one. Then if a Smackdown guy has it, Raw do a tournament to Challange at one the big 4 and bring the gold home. Then vise versa. Same with womens title. Then Raw/Smackdown got bragging rights over who got the gold.

  8. even 14 is a fkn joke, more than one per month. they should cut them back to 6 or seven and make each one a proper event.

  9. If I were king of the WWE Universe, I’d hack off at least 2 more brand specific shows, cut all the brand specific shows down closer to 2 hours, and make Clash of Champions a combined show.

  10. It’s way too expensive to do live shows there and justify the costs. The WWE is already cutting shows because their attendance figures are way down, the company is in serious decline.

  11. Attendance is in the toilet, ratings are embarrassingly low, and the network has still yet to cross the 2 million subscriber threshold nearly four years in. Any investor with half a brain would run in the other direction. This is clearly cost cutting.
