October is set to be a huge month for WWE. What should we be watching for throughout the company’s programming?

More from Brock Lesnar

October is going to be a loaded month for WWE. They have three live specials to air, feuds to build, potentially great matches to put on and ratings to boost. It will all be accomplished within 31 days.

The packed month begins with tonight’s episode of WWE SmackDown. The ratings for it have been abysmal, so it will be interesting to watch if they can raise the viewership with a more quality show.

There’s also the live special from Madison Square Garden, which takes place this Saturday on the WWE Network. The show is being built around a match of Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show that nobody believes in. Can the rest of the card make up for it?

NXT TakeOver: Respect follows this just four days later from Full Sail University. It will be headlined by Bayley vs. Sasha Banks for the NXT Women’s Championship in a 30-minute Ironwoman match.

To top it off, we have the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Oct. 25. This is set to be a massive show with multiple feuds culminating and possibly setting up ones for WrestleMania 32. Can it deliver?
