That's ideal for me. So basically use the TV specials (maybe make them "commercial free" shows) to build to the biggest PPVs - Royal Rumble, WrestleMania & SummerSlam. Get rid of EC, MITB, HIAC and TLC. Those gimmick matches can be used to help make other shows special.
MITB is great because it easily puts more people on the the Mania card with the opportunity to wow the crowd and it's an exciting spotfest - every Mania should have one.
Hell In A Cell should be for well-built personal feuds. Not because it's that time of the year again.
Elimination Chamber, much like in 2002, can be use as a concept & draw to Survivor Series. I don't feel that the Elimination Tags are enough of a draw anymore with much less focus on tag team or just team feuds in general. You can still have one or two on the undercard but with Elimination Chamber at the top the show would be more compelling in this era. Plus I don't like PPVs in between Royal Rumble & WrestleMania.
Bring back the King Of The Ring Tournament. Put some thought into making the tournament a big deal and add more participants into the mix. More superstars get TV time and they are actually have an easy angle to run for most on the roster that are not currently involved in championship feuds.
So my idea will lead to less PPV but more build, creative thought into the angles & characters would come along with that which should translate into bigger PPV buys and interest from the fans. Realistically, WWE will continue with over saturating PPV market. Maybe those TV specials could be taped PPV specials for a cheaper price. Yes TNA is doing it this year but WWE did it first back in the 90s when they had "In Your House" PPVs so maybe they could use those PPV strategy again.
