WWE had two Pay Per Views back-to-back in SummerSlam and Payback with Clash of Champions set for the end of September, but what’s next?
The hype around WWE shows is picking up after Roman Reigns returned at SummerSlam, and he’s now picked up the Universal Title and a new manager in Paul Heyman. But while his match at Clash of Champions on Sept. 27 isn’t set, Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton are already scheduled to face off for the WWE Title at the end of the month.
But which Pay Per Views will come after Clash of Champions? WWE hasn’t made any official announcements yet, but PWInsider.com’s Mike Johnson is reporting what’s next on the schedule.
Firstly, there will be no Pay Per Views in October. The traditional Halloween-themed show, Hell in a Cell will take place on November 1.
Afterward, WWE’s “Big 5” Pay Per View Survivor Series will take place in its customary end-of-November slot on the 22nd of the month.
WWE’s last PPV of the year will still be TLC
And finally, the usual last Pay Per View of the year, the exciting TLC PPV, will reportedly run on Dec. 20.
So you can see the promotion generally has a PPV at the end of every month right now, with Hell in a Cell taking place on the Sunday after Saturday night’s Halloween festivities.
The only report on TakeOver specials is that there will be an unknown TakeOver event on Oct. 4, following the TakeOver 30 show before SummerSlam.
It’s an exciting time for wrestling fans with Reigns back, the Thunderdome in full force, a potential WWE Draft, and plenty of intrigue surrounding the prestigious SmackDown Women’s Championship with Sasha Banks and Bayley set to feud shortly, either over the title or without the championship.
Hell in a Cell, Survivor Series, and TLC are typically three Pay Per Views that deliver, and Survivor Series has become especially interesting with the threat of RETRIBUTION as a competing faction.
