I would have 12 PPV's with every other PPV being a 4 hour show. Also each PPV would feature a pre-PPV match on WWE.com.

Jan-New Year's Revolution (Return Matches from previous PPV possibly featuring HIAC or TLC).

Feb-Royal Rumble-4 hours (I would have 40 Superstars compete in the Rumble entering every 90 seconds, each brand would have 12 Superstars in the Rumble and then have 4 open slots for Legends, Developmental Talent, and wrestlers outside the organization).

March-No Way Out (After the Rumble winner chooses which title he will go after at WM, the other 2 brands would each have a #1 contender Elimination Chamber. The winners of those matches would get title shots at WrestleMania).

April-WrestleMania-4 hours (Money In The Bank would feature 2 Superstars from each brand and a 7th superstar would be the winner of a WWE.com Battle Royal previous to the PPV featuring 10 Superstars from each brand).

May-Backlash (Return Matches from previous PPV possibly featuring HIAC or TLC).

June-King of the Ring-4 hours (Each brand would have their own tournament on television. The PPV would include the semi-finals and finals for each brand which would be 9 matches. The 10th match of the PPV would be a triple threat match for the KOTR Crown featuring the winner of each brand's tournament with the KOTR getting a title shot for his brand's championship at Summer Slam).

July-Fully Loaded (This would be the fan interactive PPV as the name is already fitting for a cyber PPV. The fans would choose the stipulations for the matches and choose the participants for the two #1 contender 30 minute 5 man Scramble matches for the brands that didn't win the KOTR. The winners of those matches would get title shots at Summer Slam).

Aug-Summer Slam-4 hours (Biggest Blockbuster of The Summer).

Sep-Unforgiven (Return Matches from previous PPV possibly featuring HIAC or TLC).

Oct-Survivor Series- 4 hours (Each of the 3 brands would choose their top 10 contenders and there would be three 5 vs. 5 traditional Survivor Series matches with the teams selected randomly, so heels and faces would team together. RAW vs. SD, RAW vs. ECW, SD vs. ECW. The Survivors of the 3 matches would face each other in an Ultimate Survivor Match which would be an Elimination Match with the winner going on to face the champion of their brand at Wrestling Classic).

Nov-Bad Blood (The 2 brands that didn't win the Ultimate Survivor Match would each have Superstars compete in 5 man Pyramid of Pain triple cage matches which would have the #1 contenders contract at the top of the third cage with the winner for each brand getting a title shot at Wrestling Classic).

Dec-Wrestling Classic- 4 hours (This would be the WWE's Night of Champions featuring every title being defended).

Every PPV would be worthy of purchase.
$40 for 3 hour PPV's.
$45 for 4 hour PPV's.
$50 for WM.

Welcome to the board! You, uh, sure like the gimmicks.

Thanks!

Gimmick matches are fine if not overdone or overused.
This way WWE can have their gimmick matches, but they all can be done for a reason and done at meaningful PPV's, since I'm suggesting a 12 PPV line up.

I only suggested adding one more gimmick match than WWE has right now anyway, The Pyramid of Pain, but at the same time suggested eliminating the Extreme Rules PPV completely.

They already have Royal Rumble, Elimination Chambers, Pre-WrestleMania Battle Royal, Money In The Bank, King of The Ring, Interactive PPV, Scramble Matches, Survivor Series 5 vs. 5 matches, Night of Champions PPV, HIAC, and TLC.

This line up just gives a proper schedule, structure, and spacing to their PPV's and gimmick matches.

What are they at now, 14 a year? 12 is a good round number, and I would even go so far as to roll back several (April, September, December) to around $30-$35 to create several tiers of PPVs as well as encouraging buys on a lesser effort. I'd even go so far as to recommended axing April and September and giving them time to build better, especially after the big ones.

I don't think the four-hours (other than Mania) work as well (too much burnout by the end).

I'm for giving the rosters "shifts" so they don't burn out. Keep the show going year round, but let the performers have regular time off to cycle performers through the various card levels.

If the PPVs disappeared after Mania through the end of May it probably wouldn't hurt. Tour lighter, maintain TV, give the big boys time off and ramp it up for GAB/SummerSlam. Having an "opening day" each year would rock. But a total offseason with no TV/touring might lose some momentum.

Interesting idea. If you can find a way to pull that schedule off and simultaneously raise profits during that fiscal quarter, send your resume to: McMahon, Linda, Stamford, CT.

I think Smackdown came away from this year's draft strong enough talent wise that they could go back to RAW and Smackdown exclusive PPVs, with ECW best utilized to supplement undercards. But no one wants to pay for those. It's hard enough getting people to buy the multi-branded PPVs that aren't Summerslam, Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. Such are the harsh financial realities of the wrestling business in the 21st century.

True, and it's another indication that the obsession over quarterly profits for shareholders can sometimes hurt more than help companies. If overall profits were up because of increased attention during the "season" along with the willingness of more fans to follow along when they're given a couple months off, then the Street should accept a down quarter. But you're right; they wouldn't, because it's always "what have you done for me lately."

Why can't they just use half the roster half the year and half the roster the other year, with random "surprises", and WM being the one show with everyone? Have they explained this before? It'd be like the brand lineup without dividing the shows and making people choose favorites like they want to seem to do now (They have mentioned "Smackdown fans" and "RAW fans")

I like the PPV lineup, by the way. They're trying gimmicks for PPVs at this point anyways, and the return of KOTR would be welcome to me.

Actually, it may be better to have the off season between Survivor Series and January 1st. You basically skirt the football season, end the year at the end of the second largest ratings period, and have enough time to go on a small "For the Troops" tour to knock the ring rust off before starting up a new year. Wrestlers get the holiday season off, you still have enough time to build toward the Royal Rumble, and you can run the big DVD releases as PPVs during the off-season, emphasizing the bonus features to drive hard copy sales.

December is basically coasting merchandise sales anyway, why not take the entire month off?

It'd be great if they could show classic shows in place of the current ones if they went to an offseason.

I liked it when the separate rosters had their own PPVs. Two months to build up a feud is a great amount of time and works very well in many cases.

If anything, a break between the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania would be a good thing.

the problem with that idea is that it's sweeps month in Feburary and USA/MyNetwork would want to have programming.

I prefer the idea of the two brands being separate, with each one working a 2-month on, 1 month-off schedule, similar to what they do in Japan.

Now that they're marketing to younger kids and teens, I'm wondering if WWE thinks an off-season will give the kids time to find another interest and won't come back to the programming when it's on.....I know, they always come back to football, but I think wrestling is more "fad-ish" than other sports.

My only problem with this line up is having return matches on the PPVs after Wrestlemania and Summerslam. WM and Summerslam should end feuds. Backlash and Unforgiven should start feuds that end at Summerslam or Survivor Series or they should be matches that don't result in a long feud. Those shows would be a good time to give a title shot to somebody that wouldn't normally get one while some other non-title match is the main event.

Take this year's Unforgiven for example. I'd make Jericho vs. HBK the main event and then you don't really need a big title match. Give Burchill or Shelton or someone like that a title shot and let HBK/Jericho sell the PPV. That way you don't waste your good title matches on small PPVs. If Jericho/HBK isn't BIG enough to sell PPVs, then cut the price for that PPV.

I'd be for a wrestling offseason after Summerslam. Between new television shows starting, the college football season and the baseball playoffs I lose interest in wrestling until Survivor Series and the build up to WM. Maybe they could even make Survivor Series the opening of the year and the Survivor Series matches could somehow define rankings for the upcoming year or something.

But Survivor Series has the best title for a year ending PPV. Also, it's one of the "big four" and the Rumble's main event doesn't need nearly the buildup the other three major PPVs require. Plus, you get to build viewership during the summer while "reality" shows rule the earth, and you don't miss any sweeps months.

I don't know if either of them got the "better" draft. I think tonight was a pretty good indication that Flair's stable will be a training ground of sorts for new main eventers, i.e. Kane.
