I think one major problem in WWE currently is the overfilled PPV-schedule and all those gimmick PPVs! I don't like the idea of a PPV which is specific for one match type like Hell in a Cell or TLC! Also do I think that 12 PPVs are far too much! Because of that I would love to have a reform in this criteria: Well I would book it like that:
WWE has 4 major PPVs with WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and Royal Rumble! These are PPVs that should stay and be the main angle in the development of WWE! So I would suggest to have a specific date for each of these shows:
Royal Rumble: Last Sunday of January
Wrestlemania: Last Sunday of April
Summer Slam: Last Sunday of July
Survivor Series: Last Sunday of October
Now with this schedule you have your 4 major PPVs set! Now you have to fill up the time between these shows! I think one supporting PPV between 2 major PPVs is more then enough! Since you would have about 12-14 weeks between the major PPVs, you could place supporting PPVs right in the middle of 2 major ones! So I would suggest following schedule:
- Royal Rumble
- One Night Stand
- King of the Ring (or something else)
- Summer Slam
- Night of Champions
- Survivor Series
With this schedule you would have 8 PPVs a year and the major PPVs would gain some prestige! This would also help WWE to build some good feuds between the PPVs because they would have about 6 or 7 weeks between two PPVs! Also would all the unnecessary gimmick PPVs be gone!
So what do you think about this?
