No Way Out used to be the annual WWE February PPV, and it was considered to be a throw away event leading up to WrestleMania. This is no longer the case.
Elimination Chamber is the new annual WWE February PPV, and it has huge implications on WrestleMania.
Alberto Del Rio won the Royal Rumble, and he is going on to WrestleMania to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship. But who will represent RAW and go on to challenge for the WWE Heavyweight Championship?
The Elimination Chamber will sort this out for us.
The WWE has given its annual February its own personality, and it has now become a special part of the build to WrestleMania.
The WWE needs to make PPV's special again, but it needs to do it without going over the top. The past few years we have seen the WWE attempt to give each PPV its own unique personality, but it has done so in a very lazy way.
In 2010, the WWE held a money in the bank ladder match at WrestleMania, and then held two money in the bank ladder matches at its new WWE Money in the Bank PPV. Even worse, the WWE also held a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs PPV. That is the definition of overkill.
Gimmick matches can be spectacular and help make PPV's special, but when they're used too often, fans don't think they're seeing anything special.
The key here is to give each PPV its own personality, but doing so without going overboard.
Bring back Backlash, which was always special because it was as connected to WrestleMania as the Royal Rumble is and the Elimination Chamber has become.
Keep the Money in the Bank PPV, but don't run two of the ladder matches in one night, and don't run one at WrestleMania. Have the winner of the match get an automatic title shot at SummerSlam.
Bring back the King of the Ring PPV and have the winner automatically receive a title shot at Survivor Series.
Keep Night of Champions as it has its own unique personality being the only PPV to have every title on the line.
Bring back Cyber Sunday which was unique because it was the only PPV that gave the fans a voice.
Last but not least, create a WWE Legends PPV similar to the legends themed RAW that aired earlier in the year.
There are your 10 PPV's, with each having its own unique personality.
