2017 WWE PAY PER VIEWS JAN ROYAL RUMBLE FEB WAR GAMES MARCH/EARLY APRIL WRESTLEMANIA APRIL EXTREME RULES MAY KING OF THE RING JUNE MONEY IN THE BANK JULY BATTLEBOWL LETHAL LOTTERY AUG SUMMERSLAM SEP NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS OCT HELL IN THE CELL NOV SURVIVOR SERIES DEC TLC No more Battleground as it is replaced with WCW themed BATTLEBOWL where every member of the roster is put into a lottery. Each match will be 2v2 with tag partner and opponents being drawn at random. Winning team advance to 2 Ring Battle Royal at the end. In the Battle Royal, each ring is filled with Superstars. When it comes to a winner in each ring, the two left will battle for the win. Example) 10 matches. 40 superstars. 20 entrances into battle royal. 1 winner. It would be exciting to see teams such as Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt vs Big Show and Dolph Ziggler. Or Big E and Jay Uso v Kofi Kingston and Jimmy Uso. The selection process is done live and the locker room is divided into two rooms (heels and baby faces) with cameras on them and the lottery to see reactions. It would create new story lines heading into SUMMERSLAM and Survivor Series that otherwise would not be there. Also eliminated is Payback which would be replaced by the King of the Ring tournament. The whole 8-16 man tournament should be broadcasted via pay per view. With only the WWE Championship and women's championship matches being the other fight on the card to give wrestlers a break after semi finals. It's always fun to watch wrestlers like Stone Cold or Mabel fighting 3 matches in a night to wear a crown at the end. According to Austin: If it wasn't for King of the Ring back in the 90's, the Stone Cold character would have never been created. Final PPV eliminated from the current format is Fastlane. It has never been a good PPV. It's supposed to be a filler between the two biggest events of the year but you could easily make it an amazing PPV by replace it with the old school WCW War Games. The final match is two rings, side by side, surrounded by a low ceiling cage. Now for WWE, I believe the cage should be a little taller for the high flyers such as Neville or Finn Balor. The final match of the evening is two teams of five battling it out in the closed cage. The match starts 1 vs 1. Then turns into 2-1 after 5 minutes, 2-2 after an additional 2 minutes, 3-2 after another 2 minutes and so on and so forth until it's a 5 on 5. No pin falls or submissions will be counted. Now with the old school war games, the only way a team would win is when a team forfeited. I believe with WWE they could make it elimination style after 5-5. Similar to Survivor Series but with a lot more enclosed and vicious match. Imagine the winner of the 2017 Royal Rumble making a team of 5 individuals to take on the WWE champion and his 5 individuals. Or a team of the League of Nations (plus let's say Cesaro to make it 5) take on the Wyatt Family (plus another scary looking bearded superstar). OR THE BULLIT CLUB VS WYATT FAMILY etc etc. How amazing would it be if these were the PPVs for the year. Each more special than the last in its own unique way. I believe it would be worth the 9.99 per month for WWE Network or a sports bar paying the 59.99 for the single PPV.
