With WWE producing fewer PPVs, a number of prominent events will no longer take place. As the co-branded shows continue, WWE seems to be looking to shake things up again, according to Barn Burner, who claim WWE is considering replacing a number of current PPV names.
According to one of Brad Shephard’s sources over on Barn Burner, WWE is considering an overhaul of their PPV system beyond that of the co-branded shows and time changes. They are reportedly considering replacing a number of those PPVs with WCW versions.
In particular, it seems Halloween Havoc and Starrcade are speculated to make a return to the company. In fact, the latter of the two names was used by WWE last year for a special live event in the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Halloween Havoc was another prominent WCW PPV that took place around Halloween from 1989 through to 2000. The first show was headlined by Ric Flair & Sting taking on The Great Muta & Terry Funk in a Thunderdome match with Bruno Sammartino as their special guest referee.
In what may be some interesting news, WWE TLC was originally reported to take place in October. According to Newsweek, The Super Show-Down in Australia is currently now the only scheduled show for October. The PPV is now expected to take place in December- with Clash of Champions potentially airing at some point throughout the year.
WWE has yet to confirm any details in regards to a change in PPV line-up throughout the rest of the year, but it will be interesting to see if they do indeed go through with these changes to replace some of the gimmick-based PPVs that are all too common on WWE programming ‘nowadays.
