Some interesting points though in a sense you point out the reason it works this way in the first line. It would be great to have more spontaneity in wrestling in the form of big matches, high spots and title changes on free TV but, given the PPV-centric way many wrestling companies operate where would the impetus for the fans to pay for the inevitable 'big' shows come from? PPVs generate revenue and without shaking up the entire structure of the way we view wrestling I can't see a way of not having 'big' moments occur on PPV. Not saying its a good thing, just that I find it hard to believe any company would move away from a proven profit-making structure in the name of providing a more spontaneous and exciting product for the fans.
