While you may think that some pay-per-views were either not included in the correct way or at all, this calendar fits the needs of WWE and their fans.
All of the events are evenly distributed throughout the calendar year. Now there will not be any excuse about there not being enough time to build to the next pay-per-view or there is too much time until the next PPV.
Also, any gimmick matches are during the appropriately named pay-per-view, such as Hell in a Cell matches occurring during the No Way Out pay-per-view.
While WWE has 11 or 12 pay-per-views each year, this ideal 2013 schedule only has 10. Will WWE lose money as a result of one or two fewer pay-per-views? Not if the remaining events’ buyrates increase due to booking and scheduling in a way that makes sense.
With that said, what would your ideal 2013 WWE pay-per-view calendar look like? What are your thoughts on this one? Please leave your comments and suggestions in the section below.
