History Of WWE Pay Per View Events And WWE Network Events. WWE, the brainchild of Vincent Kennedy McMahon, has been considered to be the pioneer organization in the world of sports entertainment. The company has been offering weekly and monthly shows for years to entertain millions of fans dedicated to their products. In this article, we’d detail all such professional wrestling events promoted on pay-per-view (PPV) and the WWE Network by the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).

WWE started broadcasting PPV events since the 1980s when it was World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Back then, only the classic “Big Four” events (Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series) were promoted. The variation in the WWE Pay Per View lineup increased to a monthly basis during the mid-1990s with the growth of the roster.

It expanded even more in the early-2000s as they came up with new gimmick-based shows as well as produced additional international WWE Pay Per Views between 1997 and 2003. For the first time, the events weren’t exclusive to the United States fans as they conducted overseas tours in the United Kingdom.

History Of WWE Pay Per View Events

WWE’s original Brand Extension took place in 2002 after which the company promoted two touring rosters who separately represented the Raw and SmackDown television programs. While Raw and SmackDown got distinctive pay-per-view programs of their own in the following years, the traditional “Big Four” consumed the entire roster.

The ECW takeover by McMahon produced an ECW PPV in 2005 that in turn formed another brand in 2006 under the ECW banner. The earlier Paul Heyman owned brand then also received its own dedicated PPV events. From March 2007 onwards, WWE changed the norms as they announced all the subsequent WWE Pay Per Views events would feature performers from all brands. From 2008, the company started airing all pay-per-view events in high-definition quality.

WWE Pay Per View Broadcasting

Watching experience for the WWE Universe entirely changed with the launch of WWE Network in February 2014 which was the first video streaming platform launched by any professional wrestling company dedicated to this business, only. Most of the WWE events still air on WWE Pay Per View in different regions of the world.

But WWE’s focus, at least around the United States has shifted from WWE Pay Per View channels as they now deliver those events on the WWE Network to attract more subscribers. Apart from the occasional events, the network also offers varieties of original content and docuseries. WWE Network’s launching price was $9.99 monthly, a way to grab more buyers as they were getting most of the WWE programming on such short amount subscriptions in comparison to PPV buys.

Apart from the newer events, the WWE Network also provided all the past events that took place in WWE, WCW, and ECW PPVs. The NXT Arrival and TakeOver events were also added in the on-demand section in high definition. Another brand extension occurred in July 2016 causing the return of the brand-exclusive WWE Pay Per Views as only the “Big Four” WWE Pay Per Views used to feature superstars from both Raw and SmackDown brands. The trend of hosting such brand-specific WWE Pay Per Views ended with Fastlane in March 2018.

WWE Pay Per Views are still made available on traditional WWE Pay Per View outlets around the United States by In Demand apart from the WWE Network. WWE Pay Per Views are available through Vu!, Shaw PPV, SaskTel PPV, and in movie theatres in HD through selected locations of the Cineplex Entertainment chain in Canada. In Australia, WWE pay-per-views are available on Main Event whereas, in the United Kingdom and Ireland, all these PPVs were broadcasted through on Sky Sports Box Office until 2019 but afterwards BT Sport bought rights to WWE content via an enormous deal.

SONY TEN is in charge of airing WWE Pay Per Views in India and South Asia as they own the rights to all WWE programming including WWE Pay Per Views and weekly shows and they demand no additional charge from the viewers for these.

WWE Pay Per View events became healthier in more qualitative and quantitative ways, over the ways as nowadays they are typical of 3½ hours to 4 hours in length while the Big-Four shows like WrestleMania or SummerSlam events are approximately run from 5 to 5½ hours in length. WWE also airs a kick-off show before most of those events. Each of those pre-shows includes matches, interviews, and a panel of experts giving their opinions the night’s match card.

The pre-show began as a 30-minute show but it got expanded to 1 hour, beginning from Night of Champions in September 2014. All “Big Four” WWE Pay Per View Kickoff shows are the longest as they’re of 2 hours. Sometimes WWE also hosts a post-show dissecting the happenings from a WWE pay per view event. Starting as Fallout, WWE re-introduced those segments as Raw Talk and Talking Smack during the brand-specific events. WWE stopped doing those from March 2018 before bringing back Raw Talk in June 2020.

Emergence Of The Concept Of WWE Pay Per View

WWE brought the WWE pay per view concept for the NXT brand as well by introducing the TakeOver events. Beginning in 2015, such shows initially ran for 2 hours in length before getting expanded to 2½ or 3 hours.

Each of these TakeOver has a pre-show that includes interviews and a panel of experts running down the match card of the night. Such TakeOver pre-shows started with 30 minutes duration before getting converted to 1 hour in length starting with TakeOver: San Antonio in 2017.

WWE also airs post-show following TakeOver events known as TakeOver Fallout which include interviews and a panel of experts discussing the show. These shows haven’t been definitive in length.
