Cancel all gimmick PPVs

If it’s not obvious now, Vince really knows how to book himself into a corner.

Hell in a Cell PPV therefore the main event HAD to be in a cell, even though it was their first match together.

If it was just a regular match, a DQ would’ve been fine. Less fuckery with the finishers and maybe an ending which would’ve made them both look strong - countout or where they both fall off the stage and ends in no contest.

As a result of this appalling HIAC match, they are getting roasted. Seth looks like a chump but thankfully I don’t think Bray looks too bad.

Gimmick PPVs don’t work at all. Now they’re going to do some sort of last man standing match but what’s the point.

Royal Rumble? Survivor Series?


HiaC/TLC/Elimination Chamber should've been cancelled back in 2010 though.

Well apart from the long-term gimmick PPVs. Wouldn't even consider those as gimmick PPVs. I think Elimination Chamber is fine, too.

How I'd do it -

Jan - Royal Rumble
Feb - No Way Out
Mar - WrestleMania
Apr - Backlash
May - Judgement Day
Jun - King of the Ring (winner gets a title shot at SSlam, similar to Rumble winner getting WM title shot, doesn't wear stupid king uniform)
Jul - Fully Loaded
Aug - SummerSlam
Sep - Unforgiven
Oct - No Mercy
Nov - Survivor Series
Dec - Armageddon

MITB match back to Mania. HIAC & TLC matches only when the time is right in a blood feud.

Takeovers the Friday or Saturday before the Rumble, Mania, SSlam & SSeries.

Re: Cancel all gimmick PPVs

I want this:

January - Royal Rumble
February - No Way Out
March - WrestleMania
April - Unforgiven
May - No Mercy
June - King of the Ring
July - Money in the Bank
August - SummerSlam
September - Night of Champions
October - Badd Blood
November - Survivor Series
December - Armageddon

As you can see, it's a mix of 1997 (Badd Blood in October), 1998 (No Way Out in February, Unforgiven in April, King of the Ring in June), 1999 (No Mercy in May, Armageddon in December) and 2010 (Money in the Bank in July, Night of Champions in September).

I like this list.

@ Original poster: No thanks for the yearly Elimination Chamber PPV. The chamber feels stale and not so special since it happens every year.

Back in 2005 when i saw my first EC match i was hyped. It was great to see because it didn't happen every year.

After they made the conscious decision for yearly EC matches, the quality of those matches has decreased. How many good elimination chamber matches can you guys remember? I can't remember for the life of me what happened ni last 8-9 years in those matches or who even won them.

Such gimmick matches should be built around the storylines that twine themselves into other feuds. And then to merge them into 1 big finale of a match for the biggest prize in the business.

Re: Cancel all gimmick PPVs

What I want we will never see in WWE again.

4-5 PPVs a year:

1) January = Royal Rumble
2) April = WrestleMania
3) August = Summerslam
4) November = Survivor Series

And add King of the Ring in June is your need a 5th. The oversaturation of major events has reduced their significance to such a degree that most of them feel skippable.

Less is more.

But like I said, we'll never get that again, so I'm just wasting time.

Re: Cancel all gimmick PPVs

Reducing to only 4 PPVs would be great...or 6, counting the Crown Jewel shows.

Royal Rumble (RR Match included)
WrestleMania (MITB match included)
Summer Slam (maybe KOTR finals?)
Survivor Series (Elimination Chamber match included)

HIAC match could happen at WM or Summer Slam when it fits in to a feud and doesn't have to be every year.

TLC can be a random hardcore match on a random show when it fits in to a feud.
