Ever since WWE announced that they would be resurrecting the brand split, speculation has run rampant about how they would handle Pay Per Views going forward. At one point, a prospective schedule of shows for the rest of 2016 was circulating, which featured two single brand PPVs per month, aside from the months containing SummerSlam and Survivor Series, two of WWE’s “Big Four” shows that also include WrestleMania and the Royal Rumble. According to several sources, including an Italian PPV provider, that new schedule has now been confirmed as the plan going forward, at least for the remainder of this year. As a result, WWE’s new PPV schedule, following the brand split and the upcoming Battleground PPV, now apparently looks like this:

– WWE SummerSlam, August 21st, Brooklyn, New York (multi-brand)
– WWE Backlash, September 11th, Richmond, Virginia (Smackdown)
– WWE Clash of the Champions, September 25th, Indianapolis, Indiana (Raw)
– WWE No Mercy, October 9th, Sacramento, California (Smackdown)
– WWE Hell In a Cell, October 30th, Boston, Massachusetts (Raw)
– WWE Survivor Series, November 20th, Toronto, Ontario (multi-brand)
– WWE TLC, December 4th, Dallas, Texas (Smackdown)
– WWE Roadblock, December 18th, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Raw)

As always, WWE’s plans may be subject to change. If there’s good news to be found here, it’s that you can watch all these PPVs live on the WWE Network for $9.99. For now, anyway, because there has been talk of introducing a “tier” system to the Network, or just a flat price hike, in the near future.
