Even in a pandemic, WWE ran their usual allotment of pay-per-views this year and fans got their mix of good and bad in all of them.

Note: Super Showdown will not be included in this list, as the author didn’t see it due to finding its existence morally reprehensible. 

These days, being a WWE fan is sort of like being an avid Saturday Night Live viewer or a fan of a local sports team that hasn’t played well in recent years: you mostly stick around due to legacy (and nostalgia) and the few bright moments keep you around, even if it means sitting through plenty of dim moments.

WWE pay-per-views often serve as the primary encapsulation of this feeling.

In general, WWE PPVs elicit a “meh” response from many fans. The company’s unprecedented roster depth — in terms of in-ring talent — ensures that no show for the foreseeable future is devoid of any decent matches (or at least decent action), which means the critical response to one of their supercards is dependent on how logically or illogically they book their matches and angles. Their 2020 slate is no different in that regard.

This year, WWE produced 12 supercards with varying degrees of quality, but where exactly does each event rank on the good/bad hierarchy? If you don’t have a clear answer to that question, or if you do and simply want to hear someone else’s take on the matter, then you have come to the right place because we’re going to rank all of the non-Saudi Arabia shows based on overall match quality and booking.
