• Former WWE Star Comments On If Going Back To Dual-Branded PPVs Is A Good Move
During an edition of Conversation With The Big Guy podcast, former WWE Superstar Ryback spoke about what he thinks of WWE ending the single branded PPVs and going back to dual-branded pay-per-views.
Below is what he said:
“I think the ‘In & Out Burger’ formula; when you simplify things, and you do it well, you are much better off than over-complicating the menu. I think Pro Wrestling over-complicated the menu a long time ago for the sake of money. There is a way to cut back on that now.
From a performer’s standpoint it kind of sucks because guys that were going to be on pay-per-views, may not be getting on pay-per-views regularly because you are sharing brands, and you can only take a few matches from each show essentially.
They have ways around it though; they can create longer pay-per-views to try and kind of narrow that gap, I think it is a good move. It is too much of a product, which I don’t think is a good thing.”
