Not everyone has access to raw/smackdown. I appriacate the fact there are more ppv and network specials so I can follow the wwe.

I like it even better that we get at least two ppv calibur specials on the network each month, more if u include nxt

It depends I would say a 2 hour RAW is better than a 3 hour RAW. Writers often get stretch too thin it seems so they come with miscalculated segments that end up hurting the talent more than they help.

As for the number of PPV's it's probably best not to over saturate the market. I think having 12 PPV's and maybe 8 Network Specials is a good balance but anymore might be a bit too much.

Ideally it should but it doesn't have to be at the expense of PPV's. HBK vs. Jericho has a great build and didn't even wrestle at Summer Slam but their segment was probably the biggest thing that night.

I've been waiting for a thread like this for time, I feel that having two pay per views a month is way too much overkill for the company which is like 16 in total. I would take away the gimmick themed pay per views as I feel they have been done to death i.e Elimination Chamber, Hell in a Cell, TLC & MITB. Other ppv names don't appeal to me either, WCW had themed named ppv's which fitted in well i.e. Spring Stampede for Spring time, Halloween Havoc for Halloween time as well as Great American Bash and Bash at the beach for the summer time.

My ideal ppv schedule is:

January – Royal Rumble (Smackdown/Raw).
This is a dual brand ppv as always which is a nice way to kick of the year.

February – No Way Out (Smackdown).
I liked No Way Out instead of Elimination Chamber, you could perhaps bring back the EC concept as a number one contenders match if Raw get the Royal Rumble Winner.

March – Fastlane (Raw).
Same as Smackdown above the concept could be Fastlane to Wrestlemania.

April – Wrestlemania (Smackdown/Raw).
This stays the same except have it take place in early to mid April.

May – Spring Stampede (Smackdown) & Anarchy Rules (Raw).
I've added both a Raw & Smackdown ppv to this month even it out, instead of Extreme Rules I like the idea of Anarchy Rules.

June – King of the Ring (Smackdown/Raw).
This needs to come back, I feel they could do wonders with this as a dual branded ppv or possibly a one brand ppv instead of a one night only thing for the network.

July – Great American Bash (Raw).
This fits in well with the summer, they could go the full 4th of July deal here.

August – Summerslam (Smackdown/Raw).
Both brands compete here.

September – No Mercy (Smackdown).
I've added this in because it's a good ppv as there have been some decent matches from this event over the year.

October – Halloween Havoc (Raw).
This concept fits in well for this time of year, you could make gimmick matches for this event and give it a Halloween type of vibe to the event. I.E. Hell in a Cell, TLC, Elimination Chamber, Strap Match, Cage or any other gimmick type match bring it back for this event. You could have spin the wheel where each match is determined through that.

November – Survivor Series (Smackdown/Raw).
Both Raw & Smackdown compete against each other to see who is the better brand.

December – Starrcade (Smackdown).
Nice way to finish with an old but classic event.

That is my ideal ppv, obviously that will never happen as WWE don't really want ppv's that they haven't created. For the month that one brand is holding a ppv the other brand can have a special night of champions event on their tv show. I feel this could work so much better rather than have 2 ppv's a month but that's just my idea.

I've done away with the MITB ppv and added it to Wrestlemania where you have either 6 - 8 guys compete for the briefcase, 3 or 4 from Smackdown and like wise with Raw.

Here's my schedule for 2018.

Jan - Royal Rumble

Feb - No Way Out

Mar - WrestleMania

Apr - Extreme Rules

May - Payback

June - Money in the Bank

July - Great American Bash

Aug - SummerSlam

Sept - Night of Champions

Oct - Halloween Havoc

Nov - Survivor Series

Dec - Starrcade

All are dual branded. I wouldn't really do any Network specials, as I feel that would be overkill. Less is more.

There are far too many ppvs now with the brand split, so in an unrealistic, perfect world, my lineup would look like this. And all of them would be interpromotional.

Royal Rumble (February)
WrestleMania (April)
Money in the Bank (June)
SummerSlam (August)
Halloween Havoc (the Hell in a Cell match would take place here) (October)
Survivor Series (December)

I especially hate Fastlane, Roadblock, or any other ppv they decide to throw in between the Rumble and Mania. I'm also against ppvs like Hell in a Cell and TLC where stipulation matches are obligatory and don't necessarily pertain to the feuds going on at the time. You can drop a ladder match, table match, chair match, or TLC match anywhere throughout the year. They don't need to all be on the same night. I'd possibly throw the elimination chamber match on the Survivor Series card as it does blend in well with theme of survival. I think MITB being a Smackdown only ppv really hurt the event this year. I would definitely take 4 wrestlers from each brand and pit them against each other for the briefcase. Same with the women. I'd like to see King of the Ring make a permanent comeback, but it doesn't have to be a ppv. The tournament could take place over the course of Raw and Smackdown for 4-6 weeks with the finalists from each brand facing off at Halloween Havoc. I'd possibly like a Clash of the Champions event once a year, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea or not as you obviously don't want either the WWE or Universal Champion to look weak by losing to the other.

Every time I reply to one of these WWE PPV threads, my response always changes. The ideal amount of pay per views should be 12 a year. I think this gives enough time for build.

However, if it makes WWE money to produce more, then so be it. What do you think about having 52 pay per views a year?? They should just air all of the Live Events live on the Network. That would really give the “anything can happen in the WWE” effect.

As for how I would setup the WWE PPVs, I would stop the brand exclusive PPVs. Every PPV is “Night Of Champions”. No non-Title matches on Sundays, with the exception of specialty matches, like the Royal Rumble match or the traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team match.

January - Royal Rumble

February - Elimination Chamber

March - WrestleMania

April - Extreme Rules

May - Money In The Bank

June - King Of The Ring (8 Champions, 3 rounds, 1 King of the Ring!! Featuring the Champions of the WWE)

July - Invasion (Featuring matches between the Champions of the WWE vs. the Champions of GFW, ROH, NJPW, and more!!)

August - SummerSlam

September - Hell In A Cell

October - Cyber Sunday (Fans vote on everything...for a month!!)

November - Survivor Series (Bragging Rights format, where the Champions of the WWE are the Captains.)

December - TLC

I absolutely agree about Raw being too long. It is just not as enjoyable. There are too many stories to feed. But cutting out an hour of Raw means less of the low card, women, cruiserweights etc. Eight less PPVs means that New Day/Usos in the cell match never happens.

The market is the network buyers and live fans in attendance. Internet viewers pay $9.99 a month and get all PPVs. More PPVs doesn't saturate anything. As far as the live gate goes, WWE is doing shows on Sunday regardless, it makes sense to make them seem special to those in attendance.

That can still exist under this schedule.

Again, as a fan, look at all the schedules people have come up with. How many have Hell in a Cell listed? New Day and the Usos are not getting a spot in a Cell without this schedule. Do you really want to give up that match for "saturation"?

So you want to cut the PPVs in half, meaning that you also cut ticket sales in half and reasons to watch the Network in half.

The only change I would make would be to make MITB a dual branded show and maybe have a Night of Champions PPV with only Championship matches happening as a special event feautring the entire WWE landscape, with all the titles being defended (9 titles in total in the main roster + 3 titles in NXT + UK title = 13 titles).

Ideal setup for 2018 :

Saturdays NXT-5 : Takeover

Sundays Big-5 : Rumble, Mania, MITB, Summer Slam, Survivor Series

Mondays RAW-5 : No Way Out, In Your House, GAB, IYH, Night Of Champions

Thursdays SD-5 : Fastlane, In Your House, Slamboree, No Mercy, IYH

Jan 27th April 7th June 16th August 25th November 17th NXT 5

Jan 28th April 8th June 17th August 26th November 18th Big 5

Feb 26th May 7th July 16th October 1st December 17th RAW 5

March 1st May 10th July 17th October 4th December 20th SD 5

September is when tournaments take place. CWC, MYC, DC rotating year-after-year. Maybe even KOTR in a similar vein.
