7 PPVs WWE Should NEVER Bring Back And 8 They Should

Fans of old school wrestling, rejoice! In the wake of the brand split and the ludicrous announcement that WWE will now be running 19 Pay-Per-Views a year, the door has been opened for the lost Pay-Per

Fans of old school wrestling, rejoice! In the wake of the brand split and the ludicrous announcement that WWE will now be running 19 Pay-Per-Views a year, the door has been opened for the lost Pay-Per-Views of old to make a triumphant return to the wrestling calendar. Old WWE classics such as Backlash and No Mercy have been resurrected and we’ve even seen an old WCW show make an appearance in the form of Clash of Champions, which leads to the question; what Pay-Per-View names will be brought back next? WWE has plenty of options when it comes to reviving its deceased shows. Perhaps an old favourite name could be brought back, something with significance, a name that brings back memories of incredible moments in the past? Maybe an old idea that didn’t work out the first time can be tried again? Or maybe, just maybe, a Pay-Per-View from another company could have its first ever appearance in the WWE? Or they could just bring back one of the B shows from the Attitude Era. Yay?

The point I’m trying to make is WWE have to be very careful when it comes to choosing which WWE shows could be brought back. The right name could entice old fans back, whereas the wrong one could put off younger viewers who have no idea what the hell “Judgement Day” is. Stupid kids. Anyway, whilst this list is going to be slightly opinion based, this is what I think WWE should do with regards to their Pay-Per-View increase. Any classic Pay-Per-Views I missed out on? Leave a comment, and we’ll settle this like men! Before I take off my shirt and grab my bike chain however, here are 8 WWE Pay-Per-Views that deserve to be brought back and 7 that absolutely do not.

16 BRING BACK: Badd Blood

via tumblr.com

When I mentioned a Pay-Per-View having memories, this is exactly what I meant.

The first Pay-Per-View entitled Badd Blood aired in 1997 and is memorable for a number of reasons. For a start, it was the last Pay-Per-View to feature Vince McMahon as WWE’s lead commentator before he was outed as the owner, but, perhaps more importantly, it featured the first ever appearance of the Hell in a Cell. The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels did battle inside the Cell for the very first time in this show’s main event to determine the number one contender for Bret Hart’s WWE Championship. That match was not only given five stars by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter (a hard achievement to say the least), but also featured the debut of Taker’s demonic half-brother, Kane. The main event of this show was one of the greatest matches in WWE, which is why when it wasn’t brought back the next year, many fans were shocked.

However, the name did make a return in 2002 and 2003 and produced some equally great matches. 2002 saw Goldberg vs Chris Jericho, Ric Flair vs Shawn Michaels and Triple H vs Kevin Nash inside Hell in a Cell (bleugh). The next year’s Cell match more than made up for the lacklustre attempt the previous year; Triple H and Shawn Michaels going forty-seven minutes inside the demonic structure. Amazing. A lot of criticism is levelled at the Hell in a Cell Pay-Per-View for making the Cell match feel less special and I know you’re probably thinking I’d suggest Badd Blood replace Hell in a Cell, which I am, but I’m not suggesting there be a Cell match at every Badd Blood. Gimmick matches should be used as and when the feud calls for it, not because it’s October. Badd Blood would be a great addition to the current WWE calendar as it’s a Pay-Per-View drowning in history and, if used correctly, could create even more memorable moments. You know, like Jonathan Coachman vs Eugene. That actually happened.

15 NEVER BRING BACK: Capitol Punishment

via play.google.com

We’ve seen already what bringing back an old Pay-Per-View name can do in terms of invoking memories. Backlash featured great moments like Austin returning to help The Rock beat Triple H in 2000 and No Mercy saw the first ever tag team ladder match between Edge and Christian and The Hardy Boyz. As for Capitol Punishment, well...

The sole Capitol Punishment event in WWE history took place on June 19th 2011, which was hardly a bumper year for the company, and it was named as such because it took place in Washington D.C. You know, Capitol, because it’s where the Senate is. Get it? Never mind. The show was, umm, awful, really; it featured “classic” bouts like Evan Bourne vs Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio vs The Big Show, which ended via TKO no less. Randy Orton vs Christian for the World Heavyweight Championship was one of the high points of the evening, but all that good work was undone by truly terrible main event of John Cena defending the WWE Championship against, and forgive me for reminding you all of this, R-Truth. Yep. The “what’s up” guy was considered world championship material just five years ago. That is tragic.

To bring back a Pay-Per-View name requires that name to have good memories associated with it. Capitol Punishment was cancelled after one show and you can definitely see why. It was a goofy idea that was only ever going to make sense if the show came back to Washington. Whether WWE put no effort into the show because of where it fell in the calendar or just because the premise was so terrible. Or maybe WWE was just terrible at the time. However, if there is one good thing to come from this, it’s that the main event was kinda responsible for CM Punk’s pipebomb. So I guess it was worth it. Actually, no, it really wasn’t.

14 BRING BACK: Cyber Sunday/Taboo Tuesday

via Wikimovies.net

Right, hear me out for a second – ow! Who threw that? I said hear me out! Christ.

Anyway, yes, I know that the original incarnations of Taboo Tuesday and Cyber Sunday were awful, but that wasn’t the show’s fault. Originally called Taboo Tuesday, the show first aired in 2004 and ran five years, with the name begin changed to Cyber Sunday in 2008 after the Pay-Per-View moved to the more traditional Sunday slot (WWE, stop trying to put things on Tuesdays!). The premise of the show was that the fans got to decide some of the stipulations for the matches. For example, on the first show a fan vote was organised to determine everything from Triple H’s opponent for the World Heavyweight Championship to the stipulation of the main event between Ric Flair and Randy Orton to the punishment for the loser of the Eugene vs Eric Bischoff match. They also voted for the costumes worn by the Divas in a battle royal, but let’s ignore that.

However, as they often do in WWE, this good idea soon became an absolute pile of trash. All the choices for opponents became pointless and the big match choices were only to do with stipulation or special guest referee or something silly like that. The final show in 2008 left a bad taste in plenty of mouths and left many of fans hating the concept. However, it’s not the concept that’s the problem, it was just the execution. Advancing in technology – and things like the WWE app – can make voting so much easier than it was in the past and open up the doors for a whole bunch of different voting options. It would also give fans a voice in an age where fan opinion is such a big part of the product and might help to appease some of the fans who feel like they’re not being heard. Whilst it didn’t work in the past, WWE are all about the New Era now and maybe that means trying good ideas for a second time. No more divas costume contests though, please?

13 NEVER BRING BACK: This Tuesday in Texas

via jason-helwig.tumblr.com

For all wrestling fans, Sunday is the day of the week synonymous with Pay-Per-Views. But this might not have been the case.

This Tuesday in Texas was a one-off Pay-Per-View held on December 3rd 1991. The Pay-Per-View is famous for a number of reasons, not all of them good. Whilst it did feature Hulk Hogan vs The Undertaker for the WWE Championship and Randy Savage’s first WWE match in nearly a year, the show can be best remembered for its failed attempt to establish Tuesdays as the secondary Pay-Per-View night. WWE were planning to run weekly Pay-Per-Views following the success of their regular ones and This Tuesday in Texas was the pilot for that hair-brained scheme. The plan was dumb for a number of reasons. Firstly, the event took place just six days after Survivor Series, meaning that the fans who had just paid out for that show were expected to pay out again in less than a week. Yeah, that’ll work. Secondly, because the show took place so shortly after another major Pay-Per-View, there were no real storylines to get invested in. Aside from Hogan vs Taker (which was rushed way too quickly) and Savage returning, the show featured no notable matches, including Repo Man and Ted DiBiase vs El Matador (Tito Santana) and Virgil. That match went on for longer than Savage’s return! Madness.

You can tell from the weak structure of this card that weekly PPVs were not a good idea and that why we only got one of these shows. While an argument could be made for weekly PPVs now with the advent of the WWE Network – fans wouldn’t have to pay out for each individual show – in terms of storyline development and keeping fan interest up, havging a Pay-Per-View every week would be a terrible idea. I’m not so much saying that This Tuesday in Texas shouldn’t be brought back, more than its concept should be the thing left to history. Also, as a UK fan, I take offence to the suggestion of being made to stay up late on Tuesday. Wednesdays are hard enough as it is.

12 BRING BACK: No Way Out

via cagesideseats.com

1998 was a fun year. The Attitude Era was in full swing, Steve Austin and The undertaker were ripping it up in the main event scene and I was one years old. Feel old yet? Good.

Another thing that happened in 1998 was the first ever No Way Out Pay-Per-View, entitled No Way Out of Texas. WWE liked to name their Pay-Per-Views after Texas, didn’t they? I’m amazed WrestleMania 32 wasn’t just called TexasMania. This would be the first of twelve No Way Out Pay-Per-Views in WWE history and it’s a show that really has a special place in a lot of fan’s hearts. From 200 to 2009, No Way Out was the last Pay-Per-View before WrestleMania and, as you can imagine, this opens the door to plenty of amazing moments. Cactus Jack vs Triple H in a Hell in a Cell match with Mick Foley’s career on the line. The Rock winning the WWE Championship from Kurt Angle in 2001. Eddie Guerrero defeating Brock Lesnar to become WWE Champion for the first and only time in his career. All of these incredible moments happened at No Way Out.

No Way Out lost a lot of its prestige as a show when WWE began using it as a wheel-spinner. For about the past seven years, between Royal Rumble and WrestleMania, WWE have been keen to keep things the same, not allowing any major developments to take place before The Show of Shows to produce more “WrestleMania moments”. The problem with this is that No Way Out as a show became predictable; you knew nothing big was going to happen because WrestleMania was right around the corner. It’s the same problem that has befallen the Pay-Per-Views that took No Way Out’s place as the last stop before Mania; so, if WWE wanted to fix this issue, maybe a big rebrand would be a good idea, beginning with the return of No Way Out to its rightful place. If WWE change their attitude towards the February Pay-Per-View and start making it matter, then a revival of No Way Out would be a great way to recapture fan’s interest in the long-dead slot in the calendar.

Don’t hold your breath on that one though folks; WWE have brought No Way Out back before. The main event was John Cena vs Big Show. In 2012. Ugh.

11 NEVER BRING BACK: Over The Edge

via peardaily.com

Ok, this one is going to get quite sad, so apologies in advance.

There have been two Pay-Per-Views in this chronology, but only one was just called Over The Edge and it took place in 1999. It featured The Rock taking on Triple H, Kane and X-Pac defending the Tag Team Championships against The Nation of Domination and The Undertaker winning the WWE Championship from Stone Cold Steve Austin in the main event. But no one remembers this. What everyone remembers about this show is the horrific accident that took place before the second planned match. Owen Hart, performing as The Blue Blazer, fell to his death after his supposed entrance of being lowered into the ring went wrong. His harness failed and Owen fell 70 feet onto one of the turnbuckles. He was pronounced dead on arrival at a local hospital later that night.

Hart’s death was truly shocking. At just 34 years old and one of the greatest in-ring performers in the company at the time, he had so much more to give to wrestling and to die for such a ridiculous and silly stunt only made this tragedy seem even worse. WWE have garnered plenty of criticism for allowing the rest of the show to continue following Hart’s death and so they should do; a man’s death, one the company was responsible for, is far more important than storylines and ticket sales and, for a performer who gave so much of his life and effort to the WWE, you’d have thought Owen had earned more respect than that. Over The Edge will be forever tarnished by the senseless death of Owen Hart and it is a name the company should never even think about bringing back. My apologies for bringing up such a tragic moment, but at least it gives me the opportunity to say this – Rest in Peace, Owen. Thank you for everything you did for us. We all miss you.

9 BRING BACK: The Wrestling Classic

via bleacherreport.com

Hands up who’s heard of this one.

The Wrestling Classic was another one-off Pay-Per-View special held on November 7th 1985. It was the first WWE Pay-Per-View following WrestleMania (the inaugural WWE Pay-Per-View) and featured a sixteen man tournament that culminated in the show’s main event, in which The Junkyard Dog defeated “Macho Man” Randy Savage.

The Pay-Per-View didn’t really have a theme, besides the tournament, but it’s the name that interests me – The Wrestling Classic. With the right spin put on it, that name could mean a show entirely focused on in-ring ability in much the same way as the Cruiserweight Classic did and in an era where in-ring work is perhaps more prized than ever, a revival of this show could be a very interesting concept.

Maybe the tournament could be for a championship opportunity at a midcard belt, helping to elevate the lower tier titles and give exposure to performers who wouldn’t necessarily have gotten TV time otherwise. It would take a lot of revamping, but I personally believe that a revival of The Wrestling Classic could be a very interesting concept. Also, at the original one, there was fan contest to win a Rolls Royce, which I can fully appreciate.

 

 

8 NEVER BRING BACK: Elimination Chamber

via WWE.com

Just to clarify, the Elimination Chamber match is great. Except maybe that one at No Way out 2008 that had Viscera in it, but still.

This is a problem I kinda touched on/will touch on in the Bad Blood paragraph (depending on how this has been edited), but it’s worth mentioning again. Elimination Chamber as a Pay-Per-View first came into existence in 2010, when it replaced No Way out as the pre-WrestleMania Pay-Per-View. It ran for four years in this slot before being dropped for Fastlane in 2015, but it did make an appearance that year in an attempt to draw more viewers to the WWE Network during it’s free trial month. Whilst the show has featured some pretty cool moments – Shawn Michaels costing The Undertaker his World Heavyweight Championship in 2010, Kevin Owens beating John Cena clean in 2015 – it suffers from the same afflictions as shows like Hell in a Cell or TLC- repetitiveness. The first three Elimination Chamber matches took place on three different shows and featured tops tars like Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Edge, John Cena and many more. Now, thanks to its yearly appearance, we can count such “esteemed” performers as R-Truth, The Great Khali and Santino Marella as participants. Ugh.

Gimmick matches should be used sporadically if they are to have an effect on people. Fans aren’t going to be shocked when two guys who are feuding get put in a Hell in a Cell match when there’s a Pay-Per-View called “Hell in a Cell” in three weeks. We’re not stupid. Well, I can’t answer for the Roman Reigns fans, but the point still stands that a gimmick match doesn’t feel special when it’s an annual occurrence. If WWE want the Chamber to feel like a truly dangerous match, then it should only be used every once in a while, maybe at SummerSlam or Survivor Series. As much as I love seeing it, the Elimination Chamber should not return to be a themed Pay-Per-View. Especially not if it’s going to be December to Dismember quality. Ever wondered what being in a car crash felt like? Watch that Pay-Per-View.

7 BRING BACK: In Your House

via torrentbutler.eu

Yes, yes, alright, I know, In Your House isn’t technically a Pay-Per-View in itself, but if you’d just listen for one second...

In Your House 1 aired was the first attempt at a WWE Pay-Per-View outside of the Big Four (unless you count The Wrestling Classic). The premise of the In Your House series was to increase revenue by offering shorter, less expensive regular Pay-Per-Views. This show cost just $14.95 and featured several big matches such Owen Hart and Yokozuna vs The Smoking Gunns for the World Tag Team Championships and Diesel vs Sid for the WWE Championship.

There were six shows just entitled “In Your House”, before names started appearing alongside the show (Revenge of the ‘Taker, Beware of the Dog, Buried Alive etc.) and soon, it would be the name of the show proceeded by “In Your House”, which soon became a byword for the shorter WWE Pay-Per-Views. Backlash, Badd Blood, Unforgiven and many more established PPVs began as In Your Houses until WWE abandoned the idea in 1999 and just began running shows with one word or phrase titles. With WWE running more Pay-Per-Views than ever before, maybe a return to the shorter format would be a good way to make sure fans don’t get bored. The In Your House name conjures up plenty of memories for older fans, so a return for the brand might also help to entice one-time viewers back to the product, especially if the same price scheme is brought back (not everyone has the Network, you know). In Your House would be a great name to return to the wrestling calendar and, as a business strategy, it might even help boost ratings as older fans who recognise the name can watch the shows at a discounted price. And, if that doesn’t work, you could always run a fan competition to win a free house... oh, wait. They did that already.

6 NEVER BRING BACK: One Night Stand

via wallpapermade.com

Again, kinda feel like I need to explain myself here.

ECW One Night Stand was supposed to be a one-off reunion show for Extreme Championship Wrestling. Overseen by Paul Heyman (original ECW owner) the show did a great job capturing the old spirit of ECW, bringing Joey Styles back to commentary, emanating from the Hammerstein Ballroom and brought back old ECW favourites, such as Tommy Dreamer, The Sandman and Masato Tanaka, as well as returning ECW alumni The Dudley Boyz, Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit to their spiritual home. The show was a massive hit – especially thanks to a scathing worked-shoot promo section from Paul Heyman in which he totally destroys everybody, and I mean everybody – and, as a result, another show was commissioned the next year. This, however, is where things start to go wrong. Fast.

The 2006 show was good, but it did have some of the ECW-ness taken out of it, with WWE Championships being defended and guys like Kurt Angle and Randy Orton (who debuted after ECW closed down) performing. The one bright spot was ECW favourite and, umm, “garden enthusiast”, Rob Van Dam, winning the WWE Championship from John Cena. Ok, maybe it was due to a massive assist from Edge, but he still won, ok? The show was to coincide with the relaunch of ECW as a third brand on WWE TV. If you think this sounds like a good idea, you’re completely right. If you think it was a good idea, then you clearly haven’t read any wrestling forums or websites ever, because this went famously wrong. What started out as a cool concept fell flat after a few months as it was clear that WWE couldn’t give a Rob Van damn about keeping ECW true to its roots. Guys like Big Show, Mark Henry and Vince freakin’ McMahon all won the ECW Championship and soon the show just looked the same as every other one on WWE TV. To make things worse, the show formerly known as ECW One Night Stand became just One Night Stand in 2007, with the main event being John Cena vs The Great Khali for the WWE Championship. The ECW title on the other hand was being defended by Vince freakin’ McMahon. Why, Vince, why?

One Night Stand ran for one more year until it was mercifully removed from TV in 2008 and has yet to make a return. Whilst the ECW brand died a horrible, pointless death shortly after, don’t count on WWE to bring it or another long-dead promotion back for “one more show” in a desperate attempt to cash in on nostalgia. Any attempt to do this should be vetoed immediately and WWE should just stick to their own show. Lord knows they have enough trouble running that as it is.

5 BRING BACK: King of the Ring

via fishbulbsuplex.tumblr.com

Finally, one I don’t have to explain.

King of the Ring is one of wrestling’s greatest traditions. Beginning in 1985, King of the Ring was a single elimination tournament, the winner of which would be declared “King” and would be able to incorporate a crown, sceptre and royal mannerisms into his gimmick. Beginning with Don Muraco, a who’s who of famous names won the tournament, from Ted DiBiase to Harley Race, Brock Lesnar to Edge, making King of the Ring one of the most prestigious accolades in WWE history. The King of the Ring Pay-Per-View was born in 1993 and continued until 2002, with several non-Pay-Per-View tournaments taking place since then. Alongside the King of the Ring matches, several other amazing matches took place on these Pay-Per-Views; Shawn Michaels vs The British Bulldog in 1996, The McMahons vs Stone Cold in a ladder match for control of the WWE and, of course, that Hell in a Cell match between The Undertaker and Mankind.

King of the Ring as a concept has collapsed over recent years – remember “King” Barrett? – so a return to Pay-Per-View could be a good way to reignite the once-treasured accolade. Also, with the new brand split enforced, this could be a great way to put on some inter-brand dream matches. Imagine Dean Ambrose taking Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns in the final of King of the Ring? Or AJ Styles vs Finn Balor? Or R-Truth vs Fandango? Actually. Ignore that. Truth and Breeze would be the real showstopper. Such an iconic Pay-Per-View and with such a historic concept to focus the show around, a return for King of the Ring would be an incredible addition to the WWE calendar. Finally, a platform grand enough for Truth vs Breeze. Book it, Vince.

4 NEVER BRING BACK: Breaking Point

via wrestlingvalley.org

You know what gimmick match I'd love to see a Pay-Per-View focused around? Submission matches. This is a quote from literally no one. Ever.

Breaking Point was a one-off PPV that aired in 2009 and was focused around the concept of submission matches, that every man would find his "breaking point". Ha. Other potential names for the PPV, which was decided on WWE.com, included Submission Sunday, Total Submission, and Submit & Quit, which all sound like adult films, so, I guess in that respect, this show could have been worse. It still sucked though.

CM Punk vs The Undertaker in theory was a good match, but, since Taker doesn't submit, they had to book a screwy finish to belt the belt on Punk. John Cena vs Randy Orton was an "I Quit" match, so it didn't even fit the theme (although Cena did win with a submission) and the other marquee match, DX vs The Legacy, largely featured wrestlers who didn't use submission moves. It was a mess.

Breaking Point only works if the wrestlers in the matches have signature submissions and that's just not something you can count on. Also, submission matches aren't exactly the most exciting and are hardly what paying crowds want to see. Breaking Point was a terrible idea that no WWE fan wants to see return. I'm sure they'd much rather watch Submission Sunday.

3 BRING BACK: War Games

via WWE.com

A PPV name that still sends shivers down any Attitude Era fans' spine.

War Games was a match concept devised by Dusty Rhodes for the NWA. It featured two teams of wrestlers and two rings, both encompassed by a massive cage. One man from each team would begin inside the cage and then, every few minutes, a new wrestler would enter until all members of each team were inside the cage. After this, the winning team would be the first to pin or submit an opposing team member. Fans of TNA might recognise this as Lethal Lockdown, or, as it's also know, plagiarism.

Whilst not a PPV in itself, the match became specialty of WCW's Fall Brawl show and the match produced some incredible moments. With WWE now in possession of WCW's image and rights, a return for War Games at it's own, specific show could be a great way to draw in some older viewers who remember the original matches as well as turning a new generation of fans onto this classic match type.

Then again, WWE doesn't have the best record in treating WCW inventions well. Just ask Goldberg. Or DDP. Or Scott Steiner. Or anyone, really. Sigh.

2 NEVER BRING BACK: Fatal 4-Way

via wallpapermade.com

You know what I was saying about submission matches? Well, I’d take a thousand submission matches before WWE bring back Fatal 4-Way.

Fatal 4-Way was another one off WWE show, this time airing in 2010. The premise of the show was exactly what it said on the tin; two Fatal 4-Way matches for the two world titles. That was it. Rey Mysterio won the World Heavyweight Championship in a match involving Jack Swagger, CM Punk and Big Show and Sheamus defeated John Cena, Randy Orton and Edge to win the WWE Championship after The Nexus got involved. Whilst the star power in these matches cannot be debated (ignore Jack Swagger and Sheamus), focusing an entire Pay-Per-View around a Fatal 4-Way? Really? Maybe it would be different if Fatal 4-Ways only happened at this show, but every show, from WrestleMania to Payback to Raw and Smackdown, has hosted a four way match, so why on Earth would I pay my hard-earned – ok, earned – cash to see a Pay-Per-View focused around this run-of-the-mill match?

Whether you love gimmick Pay-Per-Views or hate, you can’t deny how terrible an idea the Fatal 4-Way Pay-Per-View was. WWE truly did run out of ideas when they promoted this show; it would have been better if they’d have just picked a random word and called the Pay-Per-View that. Sandwich? Better than Fatal 4-Way. Mattress? Better than Fatal 4-Way? Katie Vick? Ooh, maybe not that one. My point is, if you’re going to base a Pay-Per-View around a certain match type, then for God’s sake make an interesting one. If WWE are going to bring back old Pay-Per-Views, then Fatal 4-Way should be at the very bottom of the pile. Once Sheamus wins in the main event of your Pay-Per-View, it’s time to put it to bed.

1 BRING BACK: UK Exclusive

via WWE.com

Maybe this one is a little self-serving, but I just really, really want to see a WWE Pay-Per-View and I’m poor, so cut me some slack.

WWE stands for World Wrestling Entertainment and usually people focus on the word “Entertainment” when they bring this up, but the word I’d like to focus on in this article is “World”. Despite being the biggest wrestling company on the planet, WWE rarely ever host big shows outside of North America. For a company that is supposed to represent the bulk of wrestling fans, only a small percentage of fans ever get to see a big show live and the country I feel is most ripped off by this is my home nation, the United Kingdom. Great Britain has a proud wrestling heritage that stretches back decades, even if you don’t include WWE. Guys like Big Daddy, Giant Haystack and Kendo Nagasaki made British wrestling one of the most thriving scenes in the world and the representation it got from shows like World of Sport brought wrestling into millions of homes. If you include British stars in the WWE like Davey Boy Smith, William Regal and Dynamite Kid, then it only strengthens my point that Britain is one of the biggest wrestling countries in the world, so, maybe, just maybe, we deserve our very own Pay-Per-View.

WWE have done UK exclusive Pay-Per-Views before – One Night Only, Rebellion, Capital Carnage, the original No Mercy to name but a few – and they boasted some incredible moments. Shawn Michaels becoming the first ever Grand Slam Champion at One Night Only, Brock Lesnar vs Edge at Rebellion 2002, Jacqueline’s top getting ripped off at Capital Carnage. Hey, I said incredible, not good. You can hear just how excited the crowd’s in the UK get at these shows and this is because seeing a WWE show live, especially one where stuff actually happens, is a rare treat for us British fans. I recently attended a WWE house show in London and the fans went crazy for literally everything. We “woo-ed” every chop, we drank in the gift of Jericho, we cheered the Big Show. Hell, we gave Goldust a standing ovation after he lost ot Braun Strowman! At a house show! Why? Because we love wrestling and getting to see it up close and personal was an amazing experience we knew we weren’t going to get very often. British wrestling fans are among some of the best in the world and giving us our own Pay-Per-View would be a great way to say thank you as well as guaranteeing some amazing crowd reactions. I’m not saying that the UK be the only country to get an exclusive Pay-Per-View or that WWE should come here all the time, but I’m just saying it would be nice to see a title change once in my life. Please WWE, for me?
