Figured I'd start a separate thread for WWE's three not-SummerSlam summer PPVs.

Who the :censored: sat down and said ''Great Balls of Fire is a great name for aPPV''? Ugh it's so dumb....

 

Jinder is gonna win via Singh interference, and then drop it to Cena on July 4th, isn't he?

 

Money in the Back matches could to any of them, it's usually chaos.

 

Naomi will beat Lana and probably cashed in on, Usos keep the tag belts because New Day doesn't need another title reign..

 

as for Joe v Brock over on RAW, it'l be a good technical match, but Brock will BEEEEEEAST his way out of the Coquina Clutch and suplex Joe a thousand times to win.

That totally could happen. But, WWE, it's not 1993 and Jinder Mahal ain't no Yokozuna. I feel like the patriotic face felling the foreign menace needs, ya know, a foreign menace. And Mahal isn't there and may never be.

The next championship for Cena will be the one to break Ric Flair's record and there is NO WAY that will happen over Jinder. The record breaker will be at Wrestlermania with someone with an actual legacy or who has been a beast or has won multiple championships.

I would say JBL but with him being on Smack Down that is not likely. I'm just glad I wont have to hear him say "WELL IT'S GREAT BALLS OF FIRE FOR THE MODERN DAY MAHRAJA" or some crap every 5 seconds.

"Great Balls of Fire" has Vince's outdated sensibilities written all over it.

He won the Title to boost the Network launch in India. They have a Live Tour down there, in September.

 

I assume he may hold it, until then.

With WWE now having a thousand PPVs a year, it's clear they need to bring back some WCW ones since they can't be trusted to come up with their own. And they clearly need to drop Great Balls of Fire in favor of Great American Bash, especially since that was a WWE show during the last brand split.

It's all so obvious, isn't it?

 

Halloween Havoc is the best name for a PPV that doesn't currently exist and it's just wasted in WWE's IP library.

Yeah Starcade and Halloween Havoc are great PPV names.

 

Since SDL is the B show anyway, I'd've rather them just called it Tuesday Nitro, and rebrand it that way.  Maybe even dust-off the WCW name for it.  Don't even try to pretend it's a top show - keep all your top titles and stars on Raw, and make Nitro either like AAA, or like a NXT-A show (with the less-experienced development talent on WWEN.)

 

So in this system, Bobby Roode would be your WCW champion, and would have just feuded with Nakamura on Tuesday Nitro live on USA.  Obviously the ratings would take a hit at first, but I think they could build their young stars better there and close the gap pretty quickly.

 

Also, Wrestlemania would be a WWE Raw show, and Starcade would be the WCW Nitro supercard.

WWE really needs to do a Halloween Havoc PPV. Much of the older audience has a connection with the name and it's family-friendly enough to sell to the younger audience without worry. Most would be happy with an event with that name.

 

If they could resurrect ECW & The Great American Bash, they could bring back Halloween Havoc.

Miss Elizabeth was understatedly super hot.

 

WWE would never do anything that looks so low-rent and unrehearsed like that today. To our collective loss :(

I like how Sheik and Volkov had custom logos on their costumes.

 

LOL @ Batman with Sheiky mustache.

But those aren't Vince's creations so we won't likely see them reborn until after he dies.
