Vince McMahon is the CEO of WWE and has the final say in everything that goes on in the company, whether it be related to production, storylines or matches in general. Vince McMahon also offered release to several WWE Champions.
WWE WrestleMania Backlash concluded last Sunday and in an interesting twist, the next pay-per-view this year will be WWE Hell In A Cell. It will be taking place in June, instead of October, which is the month the pay-per-view used to take place in for the past few years. It seems there is an interesting reason for that, as Vince will be canceling a major PPV this year.
It was also revealed by reports that the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view will be taking place in July as well. On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained WWE’s reasoning for this change.
“I guess the mentality would be that Money In The Bank is the number four or five draw most years […] so, I think that the mentality is that if we got to a show with fans to make sure that the first pay-per-view we do can no upset our schedule and move SummerSlam to July.”
WrestleZone also took to Twitter and further added to this report.
Said this earlier, but I don’t see too many people complaining about the lack of Extreme Rules this summer. That event has been very stale. How about instead of moving it to September/October, replacing it with something ‘new’. King Of The Ring, Evolution, etc.
h/t to Ringside News for the transcription.
