So now that there will be 4 RAW PPVs, 4 Smackdown PPVs and 4 joint PPVs ... my question is will the 4 joint PPVs be 4 hours long (like WM XIX) to incorporate more matches?

Just wondering if anyone had heard anything on that ... ... putting the "DEAR GOD" back into wrestling ..

I'd say that is unknown, but isn't only WM a 4 hour PPV? I mean, they have been having joint PPV's for a while and it's fit well into 3 hours. But who knows, since it might be a bigger deal, they may need extra time, but I doubt it.

I would have to say no. Your average WWE PPV runs about 2:48 or so. That includes time for interviews, recaps, and backstage nonsense. If they needed to squeeze more in to the show, I'm sure they would cut down on the out-of-ring stuff before purchasing an extra hour of expensive satellite time.

An interesting idea and certainly one that I wouldn't mind, but the initial reason for making WM four hours long was not so much that it was a necessity as it was a means of making WM stand out as the biggest show of the year (oh yeah, and a justification for charging an extra $15 for it as well).

Extending the big four PPVs to four hours and upping the charge may well be in the cards, but it might take away the feel that the joint PPVs are all star shows, which is what they are shooting for at this point in time. It would also mean that, in order to make WM stand out again, they would have to expand that show to five hours...can you imagine a five hour PPV? I can't. I could, however, see an increase in the price of Summerslam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble once they get the "all star PPV" idea sold.

I wish they would lower the price for Raw and SD! only PPVs and keep their new(ish) elevated prices for the split-brand shows.

It's just you against the group mind.

i am compelled to say that kurt angle's moonsault did hit once, and it broke bob holly's arm. i think it's kind of classy for angle's move to (almost) never hit. kind of like foley saying he would never take a big bump onto somebody.
