Default PPV's should be on Saturdays

Although it hurts to have to compete with the UFC for dates, the benefits of Saturday PPV's are just enormous. Who pays $45 for a fake wrestling PPV? You have to do it with friends, and its easier to get together on a Saturday. And do they expect kids to order it on Sunday nights?

WrestleMania badly needs to be on Saturday. To sell out stadiums at the prices they're charging, which they haven't been able to do, people need to travel to the show. Who has a job and can travel for a Sunday night event? Saturday night could actually be convenient, just fly home on Sunday and go to work on Monday. This would help PPV attendance so even if they're selling out now, WWE could charge higher prices, I don't see why rich ppl who go to WrestleManias wouldn't do the same for certain PPV's, depending on the distance. There's just no benefit to PPV's being on Sunday, except to avoid the UFC, and maybe so that house shows with low demand can get Saturdays.

Having it on Sunday hasn't been a problem before, nor is it now. You don't fix something that isn't broken.

They're on Sundays for a reason. More people will order pay-per-views on a Sunday night because there's not a whole hell of a lot else going on. Saturday night PPVs would get way less sales than Sundays because people go out and do other things on Saturday night. I think we can trust WWE's knowledge on sales, consider they've been doing this for over twenty years, I can only assume that they know what nights will sell better than others. If Saturday was a gold mine waiting to happen, they would've switched long ago.

I just can't see how ppl will pay $45. You have to combine, especially for kids who can't just have a get together like that on Sunday night. Sunday and other nights before work make sense for TV in general, cuz its a last resort since you're at home bored. But for ordering an expensive PPV, that's not the thing you do cuz you're bored at home. Anyone who's paying $45 dollars for a WWE PPV is clearly obsessed enough that they'd forego other plans for it.

And UFC thinks Saturdays work, I don't think there's a difference between MMA and wrestling that makes MMA right for Saturday nights. I bet the only difference is that WWE wants house shows to be on the day ppl have off so its easy to go to, and not waste Saturdays on an event that will sell out any day of the week.

It would not be a good idea. That said, I'm in Scotland and 4am on Sunday morning is easier than 4am on Monday morning and having to get up at 7.

Yeah, I'm in New Zealand so Sunday night in US = Monday afternoon here. Unless I book a day or halfday off work (which I did for the Rumble, fun times) I almost never see PPVs live.

Sunday afternoon PPVs would be totally awesome!
