More Torchy goodness: It's been confirmed that the PPV hitlist will be upped to fourteen this year, with two in June and two in October. The second June show will be a SmackDown-only card, which means Vengeance will switch brands, whilst the October one will take place on a Tuesday(!) and will, I assume, be a Raw effort. I cannot emphasise how lame I tihnk this is. They're fucking with formula far too early on into it's run, meaning they're never going to get a feel for the mechanics of the brand extension because they keep changing the equation. And whilst two more shows may not quite tip the balance, any more and we'll be back to the oversaturation that led to the sharp drop-off of the boom period.

Also bad news for us Uck folks-the plan at the end of the year is for all WWE monthlies to switch over to Setanta Sport once the Sky deal ends. What does that mean? Well, I'll most likely end up finally joining the Bitter Brigade after I'm forced to (gasp!) PAY for this shit. Damn capitalist pigs.

IF they were going mid-week PPV, at least have it be Survivor Series, as that historically was Thanksgiving Night. As for the Tuesday Night PPV, will they at least be intelligent enough not to hold a SD taping that night, as that would be (insert number of fans) who would not be able to purchase the PPV as they would be at the regularly scheduled TV taping.
And I agree, this is way to much over-saturation. The stand-alone PPV buyrates are 40%-plus below the joint buyrates of the previous year, so adding additional forms of these PPV's seems counter-productive.

A Tuesday night PPV? I seem to remember them trying that back in 1991 and I don't remember it working out to well. Well, maybe it'll work out better this time.

And I'm guessing they'll do a live SmackDown that week.

Hang on, the Tuesday PPV is going to be a RAW PPV? Are they going to tape the previous night's RAW before then?

EDIT: Made it make more sense.

Ah, Tuesday Night in Texas. Clearly one of the crappier PPV efforts that the WWF has ever put on.

Why? The wrestlers can handle back-to-back nights, they do it from a Sunday PPV to the next day's RAW...

The only reason I can think of for a Tuesday October show is either Halloween or possibly being matched up against Game 7 of the World Series on Sunday. Either way, I REALLY don't like the idea.

Tuesday Night isn't MLB's 'dead night' during the World Series, as they schedule to avoid MNF, thus they would go Saturday/Sunday-Tue/Wed/Thur-Saturday/Sunday as the seven day schedule, so a Tuesday PPV would definitely go against a World Series game, where as a Sunday against Game 7 would be dependent upon the Series going 7.
