An article on the main page discussed interest in the December ppvs representing a continuing trend of disinterest among WWE ppvs with the most likely reason, according to the report, being an oversaturation of WWE ppvs. Each brand gets its own ppv each month and the original Big Four shows of the Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Survivor Series are joint brand. While it's true that all you have to do is not log onto the WWE Network as a means of dealing with the overexposure, you still have to consider that if they keep the same format in 2017, there'll be a combined total of 22 ppvs for the year and that's simply too way too much. One thought I had was for each brand to have 4 ppvs and to keep the Big Four as dual branded. It'd take the combined total of ppvs back down to an even dozen and the brands could alternate months; both brands work the Royal Rumble, Raw gets a ppv for February, SmackDown gets a ppv for March, WrestleMania is dual branded and so on. WWE could reduce the number of ppvs further if they wanted, but I don't think it's realistic that they'd run less than 12 a year.
