WWE is all about doing what’s best for business, but that might not include their fans’ bank account. Endeavor bought WWE and is making plans to merge the company with UFC. Obviously, a lot of questions remain, but we now know that fans shouldn’t expect any sort of instant change to the pay-per-view model.

Although they are still working on name, the plan is for WWE and UFC to merge into one publicly traded company. That being said, fans are obviously worried that this will change how they watch WWE content.

Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that he has spoken with people on the pay-per-view side of things, and at this time they are not making any plans to change how those shows are made available for fans. That being said, anything is possible.

WWE sources were also adamant that they’re not planning on expanding PLE shows into an a la carte PPV situation again for the time being. They noted that anything is possible, but it would have to be a deal so huge that they couldn’t turn it down, and are cognizant of being shortsighted as it relates to the future of PLE/PPV and where it’s going.


A lot of fans were worried that Endeavor might switch WWE events to the ESPN+ platform, and requite an additional fee to order the shows. At this time, that doesn’t seem to be the plan.

Some WWE fans may not have any memory of dropping $50 on a pay-per-view, or having to scan the internet for results because that price tag is just too high for a monthly price. We’ll have to see if they decide to go with the money on this one, because WWE’s deal with Peacock ensures that way more fans can watch at a much more affordable price.

How much would you pay for a WWE pay-per-view? Do you think that Endeavor will change their model? Sound off in the comments!
