Should the WWE Put on Fewer PPVs?

Alfred KonuwaFeatured ColumnistSeptember 7, 2012

The WWE is currently over saturated with pay-per-views.  Or are they? 

With pay-per-view buyrates sinking over the years as a result of an increased diet of these box office offerings, could there be possible reasons as to why the WWE could be justified in continuing to load up on pay-per-views?

The WWE continues to find a relatively healthy source of revenue with monthly events such as WWE Money in the Bank and WWE Over the Limit. However, they seem to be carried annually by cash-cow, big-four franchises such as the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. 

Some argue that WWE may be better off scrapping all non-big-four events in favor of classic pay-per-views to facilitate the build-up process while giving what would be quarterly pay-per-views a big-fight feel. 

Others argue the business aspect of the WWE necessitates an environment where the worldwide leader must collect as much pay-per-view revenue as possible.
