The WWE has Poo for PPVs.
How about we bring in some of the old WCW/NWA PPVs to spice up the season?
A Pick a round- and just for fun, how about the Main Event?
Pick 1: WARGAMES
Gotta be the first out of the gate, right?
Team Hunter: Orton, Corperate Kane, Batista, Reigns and a returning HHH
Team FU: Daniel, Show, Kofi, Shemus and and anyone but Cena

My first inclination is to pick the "Grand Daddy of 'em all", Starcade. But since that is the NWA/WCW equivalent of WrestleMania it would never work as a WWE PPV, nostalgia aside.
So I think the picks have to be something that isn't as synonymous with WCW as Starcade is and be a name WWE could easily market. So here are my 3 picks in no particular order:
The Great American Bash
Bash at the Beach
HM - Bunkhouse Stampede
I know you said a pick a round but I'm just like Rowdy Roddy Piper. "Just when you think you know all the answers, I change the questions."
What's more American than a great bash? Answer: NOTHING!!!
As to the main event. How about Cesaro vs. John Cena for the World Heavyweight Title. They tore the house down last night on Raw. Cena has said that new stars will have to go thru him so why not have Cesaro beat him in the Main Event. Cena wins the Elimantion Chamber and beats Batista at Mania. Then loses the title to Cesaro at the Great American Bash.
The WWE stopped doing teams at Survivor Series for a reason so NO to Wargames!!!

Did G*A*B before, The Bash actually was the culmination of a series of houseshows all over the summer, but the E doesn't care about House Shows, unless someone gets hurt- so thats kinda gone.
Bash at the Beach isn't going to work either- since there is no live gate and that costs MILLIONS in revenue- Vince isn't that stupid.
Also, what makes Havok special? You that desperate to see a Cena Monster truck?
number 2 pick
no rules, ref is just there to count a pinfall.
Pretty Much like TLC, but without the dozens and dozens of crap that has to be brought out by rote. Plus it takes place in the spring- so it could be a month or so after Mania, to start the build for Summer Slam.

RIP Big Daddy V!!!
The WWE won't do Uncensored as long as they're still PG. Ain't gonna happen.
You didn't mention any caveats that WWE couldn't have already used the PPV name so Bash is good to go. Vince is smarter than WCW so Bash at the Beach would be in an arena located in Spring Break/Beach town or on a resort so that he could control attendence and charge for admission.
Bash at the Beach could be done in the spring in a Spring Break locale or later in the summer in a beachside/seaside town. Or he could have a PPV in Hawaii (Yeah! I know that will never happen but one can dream can't I!!!) during Winter where several indoor and outdoor locations could run a WWE PPV. He could also run a resort in the Caribbean but that is very very unlikely.
I always enjoyed the WCW Bash at the Beach PPVs b/c it's great to see scenery that isn't coverd in snow and/or ice for a change after a long cold snowy Winter. WWE could and should make this work again for all the snow bound people.

Spin the Wheel Make the Deal.
Vince loathes the time between Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania.
It can't be helped since its 2 major money-makers, but he has to keep EVAD strong until Mania- unless he does a multi-man match for a main event.
Spin the Wheel Make the Deal match in March.
It gets the fans interested- 10 possible matches, you can have the fan vote on what goes up there, and it keeps people talking about what could happen - instead of CAN WE GET TO MANIA ALREADY??
You just have to do one thing that Dusty forgot.
Gimmick the wheel.

WWE already does a spin the wheel espisode of Raw a couple tmes a year. Plus TNA just did it too and called it the Wheel of Dixie. The WWE also had the deal where fans pucked the stipualions/matches. It was called Cyber Sunday. I think they've dropped the Cyber PPV though.
My last pick was Halloween Havoc. This would be the October PPV for WWE. The Divas would have a costume battle royal (like you didn't see that comming from at least a 1000 miles away!!!). The annoncers and all the crew could be dressed up in costumes. The Undertaker could make his second appearance of the year at this PPV (Wrestlemania being the other) since this is right down his alley. That alone would draw fan interest. You can have Halloween theamed gimmick matches and make the wrestlers dress up in costumes too. I could go on but you get the idea.
A quick word about my HM pick - The Bunkhouse Stampede. I've just always liked how that name sounds. Don't know why, I just do.
