This isn't WWF vs. WCW, it's WWE competing with itself. If you think there's going to be much difference in how each brand is booked you're mistaken, and I don't know what planet you're on if you think this is a good idea. They couldn't fill a single brand PPV properly ten years ago when there were several big stars who weren't the victim of 50/50 booking. Now they have two.

PPV's should stay the same. You have 4 feature matches from each brand on the PPV's. This would eliminate a PPV that was half watered down low card matches. The big issue is making sure you have the shows talent pool broken down correctly. I would keep the Raw roster heavy with Reigns, Cena, Rollins, and Styles. I would move Ambrose to Smackdown and make him the initial champion. He is way over and could lead the brand nicely. Also make sure to put solid heels on Smackdown like Kevin Owens, Rusev, and Del Rio.

This is an excellent move for a variety of reasons. Number one, the WWE isn't in the PPV business that much anymore, they're in the subscription business. And in the subscription business, the more content the better.

If the brand split is enforced like the first one was, you won't have the watered down issue because it'll be like two different companies anyway. I think the brand split is DOA unless the do this honestly because people were conditioned to Smackdown stuff being secondary towards the end. SD needs a stand alone champ and stand alone PPVs to re establish it.

It seems to me like the WWE is going away from the PPV format. What they need right now is selling the WWE Network. Having one network special for SD and one for RAW every month isn't bad. It's not like they are going to ask for 30$ for every special. These specials will be included in the 9,99$ price.

That way they can build up the stories on TV and give us the end result in those specials. It's not that bad and it can work if executed properly.

I wouldn't be surprised if WWE were to cancel their PPVs completely and just keep Wrestlemania, Summerslam, Surivor Series, Royal Rumble, MITB and Night Of Champions. Every other PPV really serves no purpose with the creation of the WWE Network. So it's smart for them to focus more on the "WWE Network Specials".

Just my $0.02 here...

If they are going to have two PPV's or "Special Events" then they should just bring back WCW. Call Raw, WWE Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, WCW Tuesday Smackdown. This way, having 2 world titles would make sense and you may also get the nostalgia fans back who are curious to see what WCW is doing.

So it really helps on getting those talents noticed and those talents getting chances. Different talents, different stories, different creative teams, etc... will warrant needing their own events. It adds more value to the Network. I'd gladly watch more than one PPV per month with my subscription. It also lets WWE have another PPV gate per month with higher ticket prices and draw a few more bigger gates per year. It's smart on their end.

My only question is MitB as a PPV. What brand would that be exclusive to? Or do you rename the PPV and stagger the MitB matches maybe six months apart to sort of rotate the briefcases? Or do you trash the event as a PPV all together and have two MitB matches at Mania? I would have a hard time believe they would trash the PPV all together seeing as it's actually more entertaining the last five years than any Survivor Series in recent memory.

I won't mind it. Gives me something to do on a Sunday night.
Hopefully they keep the one world title. Then you have a MITB match, whether it's Wrestlemania or Summerslam with both brands involved. The MITB winner can then appear whenever to cash in if they so choose.

If this report is accurate then it'll confirm that WWE will go back to having two world champs and probably two tag & women champions.

20 PPV's is overkill, 12 PPV's slightly too many as it is. Why not keep the 12 as it is and either have 4 Brand Exclusive PPV's a piece or just have 3 or 4 matches for each Brand on PPV bar 'The Big 4'.

20 PPVs a year is major overkill in my honest opinion. There's no need for it. I'd much rather they just them up RAW gets it this month Smackdown gets the following month etc etc. You can still share the big 4 and it doesn't over saturate the product. If nothing else it allows you to put more time and effort into a built. I get the feeling once they start all those extra PPVs they're gonna jack the network price up.

Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, Money In The Bank, Summerslam, Night of Champions, and Survivor Series. Then have 3 Smackdown exclusive shows and 3 Raw exclusive shows. Two shows in one month, whether brand exclusive or not, is just too much. I'll give it a try if that is the route they do take, however it doesn't seem like that great of an idea.
I have to echo this. No need for two different PPV's every month. You can have the 4-6 whatever they decide on being both brands, Mania, Rumble, Survivor Series, Summerslam, NOC and maybe MITB. The rest of the time would be RAW one month SD the next and so on and so forth.

It would give them more time to build a decent storyline that would be like a Phoenix. You have the feud end at the PPV, and have a different one rise out of the flames. I'm finding that right now you have an issue with feuds lasting over 3-4 PPV's the matches get stale and I don't care who wins by that time. If you have only one PPV to make that match count, then you make it count.
