Why WWE is getting rid of single-branded PPV events Submitted by Aaron Rift on 02/13/2018 at 09:59 AM
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed some of the possible factors as to why WWE is reportedly getting rid of dual-branded PPV events after Wrestlemania 34.
- Some of the advances for the PPV events “have not been strong, I know the Vegas one especially coming up.” The idea is that dual-branded shows will draw bigger crowds.
- Booking was being slowed down since there would sometimes be two months separating a single-branded PPV event. Meltzer noted that WWE probably won’t change any of the 2018 PPV dates but will go back to a traditional 12-PPV schedule in 2019.
In order for more talent to be included, the speculation is that WWE will have more matches on the cards by either expanding the PPV events to four hours or cutting the time of the matches. Meltzer mentioned that the word from WWE is that an official announcement is coming soon.
