Fortunately, once this new tv deal goes into effect, the PPV's will become worthless and everything will be about tv, so you won't need to see them.

Just leave the B/C level PPV's at 3 hours and then have the big four 4 hours long, that would be fine. I mean The Greatest Royal Rumble seemed to go on for-fucking-ever.

And since Vince won't let a fifth (or more) of the roster go because it would look bad and help his handful of small relatively weak competitors, he's gonna keep em, and by Gawd he's gonna get use out of the money he's spending on em by having them show up on PPVs that take longer than a gospel church service

I like watching some PPV live in the middle of the night (here in Europe).
But this is too much.
Wrestlemania 34 started around 11 pm on sunday and went well into the 6 am on monday. Pure crazyness.

"you can watch it the following day" is also not an option, because i still need 4 (or even 7) hours of spare time to catch up with the whole show... unless i start skipping left and right

JBL: in his own words


"You can knock me on my ass but I will come back and I will be successful. Come Hell, come high water. Take your best shot, America. John Bradshaw Layfield is right here and I won't back up from anybody. And if you don't like it, you can go to Hell"

"Everybody loves free speech until you use free speech"

"Well at the Great American Bash, I'm gonna go one step further. I am going to become WWE Champion for one reason, and that is to shove it down your throats. Well Eddie, if I have to destroy myself to destroy you, then by God in Heaven, by everything holy, that is what I will do. Nobody, NOBODY can stop me from becoming WWE champion and taking my date with destiny"

Well I rarely watch the ppvs so I don't care how long they are.

Re: Hey kids, WWE PPVs are now going to be 4 hours long, cornerstone shows longer

Well, my PPV viewing is never live these days. I used to stay up to watch the shows at 1am - y'know, when the PPVs were worth staying up for. But for a long time - and since I got the WWE Network sub - I just watch the PPV the next day, fast forwarding through the trash.

Maybe they'll be extending the PPVs to 4 hours ... my prediction though, is that it'll still only take 1.5 hours to watch any given B show. I make exceptions for Royal Rumble & Wrestlemania, as I always watch those full shows without skipping. Everything else ... this news doesn't affect.

My only hope is that, with renewing TV deals, WWE will be making some effort to make the shows actually entertaining, rather than a long, boring slog of 3 minute snatches of wrestling show in between the 6 metric tons of adverts.

Typical WWE and their fucking shit like this. It's like they want the talent to get burned out easily and to get injured. I expect injuries to happen more now due to these over worked hours and don't forget about the house shows during the week too. This is going to break some stars emotionally and mentally.

Probs just do what i do with the main shows and watch the bits that interest after. The shows are getting too long to watch live due to lack of quality all the way through.
