It was reported on some sites that they dropped a PPV for 2012, and now according to event listings Fatal 4 Way is in June instead of Bragging Rights.

And what of Bragging Rights? It's in December.

And TLC?

CANNED.

Personally, I approve of less PPV's. And I like the idea of TLC matches being a rarity instead of a themed PPV.

I liked it better when there were 4 PPVs a year... Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania, SummerSlam and The Survivor Series (on Thanksgiving night).. More time to build things up between them

I agree - I never see this happening, due to how much of a cash cow PPV's are but I'd love to see them cut down to just the four big ones in a quarterly fashion for four hours. It would really make the events seem like a big deal that you absolutely *need* to get rather then just a "oh, I'll skip this one, get the recap on Raw, and then get the next one maybe".

Of course, I also wish they would scrap Bragging Rights and just add in Starrcade, too.

From what I remember reading, once the WWE Network goes live, the only actual "Pay-Per-Views" will be the Big 4 while the rest of the shows will just be "major events" aired for free on the Network. So we're kinda going to get what people are hoping for in about a year's time.

What *I'm* hoping for is a return to the days when these events all had actual creative names instead of just taking a gimmick match and branding the show with it. I miss shows like No Way Out, Backlash, Judgment Day, Armageddon, and so forth. I'd like there to be chances we get an Elimination Chamber match in a month other than February, or a Hell in the Cell match in a month other than October.

I like the Elimination Chamber night because it goes nicely on the Road to WrestleMania, plus I imagine it isn't cheap to set up and take down. Hell in the Cell should be saved for nasty blood feuds. Two men enter one man leaves ... feud over.

WWE's been doing some sort of cage match at their Feburary PPV for long enough that it feels traditional. (Diesel/Hart 1996, Austin/McMahon 1999, Cactus Jack/HHH 2000, Austin/HHH 2001, Big Show/Bradshaw 2005, Elimination Chamber matches 2008-2011)

I wish they would turn Bragging Rights into a match at Survivor Series.
