Before 2008 WWE featured 12 pay-per views a year that had varying names, Judgment day, Armageddon, Vengeance, etc., but not they are doing something yearly that never ceases to get more hilarious.

That is to say that with the exception of 4 events (Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble, Survivor Series, and Backlash) WWE has changed the names of all of their PPVs. It started with what was actually a good decision, changing the name of Vengeance to Night of Champions, the name alone sounds a little prestigious but it's all down hill from there.

WWE Began rolling out new PPVs including Bragging Rights, TLC, Elimination Chamber, Extreme Rules etc. This seems like another attempt of alienating lifetime fans (*cough* pg era *cough*) and it strikes me as downright humorous. What's next? WWE Entrance Ramp?, WWE Tag Team Matches?, WWE Armbar Takedown?

It would be one thing if they were changing the names to other competent things like things that at least continue the tradition of wrestling pay-per-views (in your house anyone?). But instead there just naming them after match types. Oh! I got another one: WWE Infill, look out all matches arent over until someone gets pinned!
