    It was a one time network special. So yes it was.


    That's just.....Flat out incorrect. The majority of the field is/was on the WWE roster.

    Why? Because you say so ?

    The OP asked if an all-women PPV would work. As has been demonstrated, it already has.



    Why? Because you say so ? Also, Sarah Logan was in the MYC.

    We will see the majority of the MYC field again.

    Why would you say the MYC means nothing? I assure you it was ten times the significance of the 88 B show PPVs the WWE puts on every week.

    As Norcal has already pointed out to Dagger, he has several flaws with his reasoning.

    Firstly, 205 Live is a weekly show. We're talking isolated events for the sake of clarity. Even though the Mae Young Classic was spread out on release, it was still a one-off. In the Network model of WWE business, it counts the same of WrestleMania and the Royal Rumble. NXT Takeovers are the exact same thing. NXT itself is weekly but the Takeover events are just like PPV's in the old model of business. They count just as the Mae Young Classic does.

    Dagger's second reason of the women who were involved flat out doesn't make sense. So what if it didn't feature the main women in WWE? It's still produced by WWE. It was one their Network. A Tim Burton movie is still a movie even if it doesn't feature Johnny Deep.

    The use of the term pay-per-view in itself is flawed since that's not what these things are at this point. WrestleMania isn't a PPV, it's a Network Special just like the Mae Young Classic. Can you still get it on PPV? Yes. But you can also get WWE produced DVDs like Best Tag Teams Ever, and those aren't pay-per-views in any era. Simply remaining on a PPV platform doesn't mean it's a PPV. In the same way, NXT Takeovers aren't available for purchase on a PPV platform but I believe many would class them as PPVs.

    If you still use the term 'pay-per-view' in regards to WWE than you're behind the times. Let it go.

    shadyfozzie is clearly a Russian troll sent to this forum to get us to turn on each other based on our differing views of today's most important worldly topics. In this case the age old questions, "What is considered a PPV in 2017?" and "What is a success in WWE?"

    Bravo comrade shadyfozzie, bravo. I expect your question will ruin many New Year's Eve parties tomorrow night (this is where the Australian members of this forum curse me for ignoring their advancement in time).

    And I would defer to WWE to decide if the MYC was a PPV but I didn't watch any of it or pay enough attention to the hoopla to answer that question so I'm sticking with my earlier post assuming that evil commie shadyfozzie was talking about a single evening live event that mainly consists of main roster talents. Someone will have to tell me whether or not that makes me a libtard, or repukeblican.

    If only something like the MYC could be used to extrapolate the potential of a one night WWE-Network based event utilizing nothing but women.

    You know, since that's what it was, and all.


    No, better to obsess over extremely (creepily?) precise definition/structure of a question another person was asking.

    I think they are a few NXT call ups away from trying it. Maybe it happens. We are having the first ever women's royal rumble match, I predict there will be an elimination chamber match for the women, and yeah I can also see an all women's show. Make it a 2 hour network special.

    No it wasn't. Here is a listing of the 2017 WWE PPV events.

    Royal Rumble
    Elimination Chamber
    Fastlane
    Wrestlemania 33
    Payback
    Backlash
    Extreme Rules
    Money In The Bank
    Great Balls Of Fire
    Battleground
    Summerslam
    No Mercy
    Hell In A Cell
    Tables, Ladders & Chairs
    Survivor Series
    Clash of Champions

    There's a lot of shows on that list. It contains some very good shows and even some bad ones. You know what I do NOT see on there? The Mae Young Classic. Why you might ask? It's not listed amongst the 2017 WWE PPV events because it wasn't a PPV. You can play the "Why because you said so?" card all you want, but that works both ways. The Mae Young Classic does not suddenly become retconned into becoming a PPV just because NorCal said so. The fact of the matter is that it was NOT a PPV. Period.



    There was not a single person in the entire list of participants who was in the WWE during the tournament. A few have had appearances in NXT battle royals or as jobbers, but nothing of major note. Sarah Logan did not make it to the main roster until after the tournament. So, unless you count someone being Miz's makeup artist or the two women who were once part of Adam Rose's Rosebuds, or Serena's run from 7 years ago.... A grand total of NOBODY from the Mae Young Classic was in the WWE.... AND none of the women from the main rosters were in the tournament. The event did not feature anyone from the WWE. Nice try.


    We've covered this. The women of Raw and Smackdown have never had a PPV event before. Neither have the NXT women had an all women's Takeover event. So as has yet to be demonstrated, we do not know. Hence the topic of discussion.


    While I do agree with this being possible, that doesn't change the fact that the tournament did not feature women from WWE.

    I said that it means nothing in the grand scheme of things because it truly doesn't. At least with the Cruiserweight Classic and the UK Tournament the winner got something. The majority of the competitors were people who we might never see again, so why should the fans care? Had this been a tournament for ONLY women that legitimately were part of the NXT roster who would get an actual prize for winning it like a main roster promotion or something, then that would be different. However, Kairi got nothing and she could have gotten her title shot without this tournament.


    Just because it was a one-time event does not make it a PPV. NXT Takeovers are a little more gray. With that being said, The Mae Young Classic was not an all women's NXT Takeover, let alone an all women's WWE PPV. An all women's WWE PPV has to have WWE personnel in it. Otherwise it's irrelevant to the discussion.

    That analogy does not work. What you're looking for in such an analogy is whether a Tim Burton episodic series on Netflix without Johnny Depp (Not "Deep") counts as a movie. It does not.

    You're completely contradicting yourself here. Wrestlemania is a PPV. Special events on the WWE Network are not. The Kevin Owens 365 thing was a WWE Network special. Is that a PPV? No. Same goes for the Mae Young Classic.

    The WWE still uses it. Guess they must be "behind the times" too. Until they completely stop saying "pay-per-view" on Raw and Smackdown then the terminology is still relevant.




    To both NorCal and Prophet.... I often enjoy a good debate, guys, but I think we are just going to have to agree to disagree on this one.

    To everyone else, I rest my case. The WWE has yet to try a PPV (such as "Payback" etc) with only women from its main roster. They have also yet to attempt an all women's NXT Takeover. It has not happened yet because The Mae Young Classic is not a PPV. Until it does happen, we will never know if it would work out or not. I'd be interested in seeing it happen if they tried it due to the history being made.

    If they cater to only the Network viewers than an all women event would work but as a traditional standalone event to be purchased outside of the network then no. And if it’s a Network only special then you limit your possible viewers.

    So its your position that Takeovers are not the same as the big shows WWE puts on? That they would not qualify for the type of thing the OP is asking about? unless its purchased and put on a screen at Buffalo Wild Wings it doesn't count now?


    Only the main roster counts as being in WWE now? You know that NXT isn't an actual separate promotion, right ?


    So Takeovers DO count? Even though they do not fufill your own definition of a "PPV" ?

    Further....What is different between an all female Takeover and the MYC? Nothing, would be the answer.

    There were multiple NXT talents in the MYC. NXT talents are WWE personnel. NXT talent are also, incidentally, NXT personnel (for a Takeover). Takeovers have also featured non-WWE talent.


    The...title shot she got for winning the tournament? Are you seriously referencing the title shot she got from winning the tournament in the same sentence saying she got nothing from winning the tournament? Has Rick Fucking James inhabited your body?

    A title shot for the winner was always the prize, btw.

    I'm not sure why the guys are arguing over the MYC being a PPV or not lol. The one guy is right in that it doesn't fit the bill with being a typical monthly PPV/Event, while the other dude is right in the way that PPV's are presented today on the WWE Network, as events, rather than the traditional PPV format. You're both right in what you're saying, so don't be crazy about it. As for an all female PPV/Event. Could it work? Yeah. Absolutely, it could work. An all female PPV is the perfect time to bring back the PPV title, "Badd Blood". I'll see my way out.

    Overstepping your position as a mod again, I see.

    Let's face facts, mate. You are a hypocrite, because you bag me for hating on wrestlers, but the fact is, you don't like me, and that is why you respond to my posts so angrily. Funny thing is, I don't care what you think of me.

    So, being critical of Asuka is racism is it? Okay, say Asuka was caught drink-driving one time, and was charged by police. If she was disciplined by police, you would probably call them racists too. I mean, you defend wife-beaters like "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, so that says everything about you as a human being.

    You are a piece of shit mod, and you abuse your power by expecting people to post only what you agree with, or else. I bet you will suspend me, because that is how corrupt turds like you work in society. You think because you are a mod, you have some power. You're a joke, and I am entitled to like who I like, and not like who I don't like (like you, for example), just like you hate on me.

    I plan on reporting you for overstepping your authority.

    But hang on, Digger, you are telling people that those Divas in the MYC don't count?

    So, now you are again telling people who they should consider important and who they don't. Just because you don't rate the women in the MYC. I bet if Asuka was in the MYC, you would be getting a chubby over it, and wanting everyone to talk about her.

    But then, unless someone like SCSA, Daniel Bryan, Shinsuke Nakamura, or Asuka, then you don't want them posting here. Funny, I don't know that it was all about you.

    I wouldn’t watch it personally but judging by everyone’s opinion I’m guessing it probably would succeed. I don’t think it could be a monthly thing but a yearly thing then I could go with. I’d probably have an important woman match on there to solidify the PPV like the woman’s MITB or the woman’s Rumble.

    I wouldn’t watch it because I just don’t want to make more time for wrestling and having superstars that I don’t care about on a PPV isn’t going to change that. At the end of the day I don’t want to watch the WNBA, I wanna watch the NBA. Sure the WNBA has had legends like Lauren Jackson and Sue Bird and has a lot of talent now like Candice Parker, Tina Charles and Nneka Ok(I don’t know how to spell the rest of the name haha) but I’m picking Lebron James, Kevin Durant and james Harden every day over them. Hell I would even pick watching teams like the Kings and Suns over them. That’s what it’s like for the WWE for me. Watching Sasha kill it against whoever can be awesome to watch but I don’t watch wrestling for her, let alone the woman. I want to see dudes fuck each other up, not woman. I feel like that for UFC as well. I’m not sure an all woman’s UFC PPV would be as successful as normal. Maybe a one off but I wouldn’t say every month.

    To be fair, a pay per view doesn't have to have the company's top talent to be called a pay per view. That's getting close to saying a main event isn't the main event because the world title isn't on the line. It would seem beneficial or even a better idea to do so, but the definition of those two things don't change because you feel it isn't as special.

    Are we having an argument over semantics!? GOODY GOODY GOODY!

    Pay Per View, what does it mean? In the sense that a Role Playing Game is any game where you play a role, a Pay Per View could be any random nonsense shown on TV in that you've paid money in some kind of way to see it.

    I grew up with the notion that a Pay Per View was something where you had to *mean gene voice* call your cable company *end of mean gene voice* and pay a fee to watch it. If it wasn't on that special channel that the cable company ran specifically for content that had to be paid for one broadcast at a time, then it wasn't a Pay Per View.

    This is still done, and is being massively undercut by the WWE network. I don't consider Network Specials to count as PPVs. but the NXT Takeover broadcasts of 2017 have apparently been available on Pay Per View.

    It's likely a huge step to go from what I would define as being merely a network special like the MYC, to devoting an entire PPV to the potential of the female talent. If it happened; I for one would buy and would likely force myself to enjoy it regardless of how it went down.
