After not being seen on the WWE’s yearly pay-per-view schedule since February of 2009, No Way Out, an event that ran in 1998 and 2000 through 2009, has been listed on the redesigned WWE.com on this year’s schedule between Money in the Bank and SummerSlam.
After the WWE changed the majority of their pay-per-views to gimmick events like last month’s Elimination Chamber, I think it would be a good move for the company to return to the traditional style of events like in the past.
The most obvious classic event that would have the dust cleared off it and brought back to the yearly pay-per-view schedule is King of the Ring after being cut as full-time event in 2002 and being only seen as special events the past few years.
King of the Ring could be used just like the Royal Rumble is for WrestleMania as the winner of the tournament could get a title shot for the world championship on their brand in one of the main event matches at SummerSlam.
As we move onto other changes on the schedule, it would be nice to see Backlash make a return to the April spot on the schedule as the name of the event fits accordingly as a lot rivalries spill over from WrestleMania to the following event in April.
With the final change to the pay-per-view schedule, the classic December pay-per-view, Armageddon, would be the final event of the year after the removal of the Tables, Ladders and Chairs event and make TLC matches special again like they were in the first few years.
So Bleachers, what pay-per-views on the current schedule would you like to replace with one of the classic WWE events from the past?
