Opinions on the 6 week gap?

So 6 weeks between Night of Champions and Hell in a Cell. This gives WWE time to build anticipation and hype up the HIAC matches properly. Plus WWE featured more talent on RAW and Smackdown this past week because they have the time to do so.

However I don't like how this is at the expense of only 3 weeks of build for Survivor Series which is one of the 'Big Four' PPV's. They could have easily had 4 weeks for this PPV and then 5 weeks for SS. Which still would have been adequate time for both builds in my opinion.

Re: Opinions on the 6 week gap?

Yeah I agree that it should of been 4 weeks build for Hell and Cell and 5 weeks for Survivor Series considering it's the bigger PPV. I guess this is something that WWE is just testing because we didn't have 6 weeks difference between NOC and Hell in a Cell last year did we? With 6 weeks there should be strong build for all the matches on the card and there shouldn't be any matches that are added to the PPV at the last minute, but I won't get my hopes up on that...

Re: Opinions on the 6 week gap?

Thank god, it is 6 weeks. Imagin it would be already in two weeks. Cena wouldn't have been able to compete.

Yeah, imagine Cena couldn't compete. That means Punk retains, now he loses the title. That's the curse of this PPV being 6 weeks.

Aside from that, it's great, because it allows them to actually build feuds. But I'm sure they'll squander the opportunity.

Re: Opinions on the 6 week gap?

6 weeks seems a bit too long , I'd prefer the gap to be 4 weeks as well.

Re: Opinions on the 6 week gap?

why they cancel Vengeance anyways?

Bah there should be more time for Survivor Series than freaking HIAC. its only this year since Over The Limit will be placed between NOC & HIAC.

Re: Opinions on the 6 week gap?

6 weeks is too much. There's more time for build up, but it should be before some important PPV like Survivor Series.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

It should have been the six for Survivor Series, but I'm glad we're getting a six week PPV break at all.

Re: Opinions on the 6 week gap?

The more time in between PPVs, the better.

It is especially better in this case since a show that will have more than one HIACs (which I hate, but whatever) it is better to get as much build up for matches like that as you possibly can.

Re: Opinions on the 6 week gap?

tbh i don't mind this. The 6 weeks leading up to HIAC will obviously ALSO build up Survivor Series, so the three weeks for SS is enough. This year at WM we got 5/6 weeks of build up, and tbh all it did was drown out some of the feuds and make it feel repetitive (Punk/Jericho, Rock/Cena and Taker/HHH, it was like we saw the same build up every week for them, i was way less interested for seeing the matches then i was right after Elimination Chamber.
