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

Halloween Havoc

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

Uncensored.

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.


Final Pick?

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.

Answer?

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.

#1 Wargames.

The WWE already has that exact PPV under the name Survivor Series. Plus Wargames was the absolute worst WCW PPV!!! Why you would make that your #1 Pick is beyond me.

February 17, 2014  05:04 AM ET

Halloween Havoc, forget Hell in the Cell.

February 17, 2014  05:19 AM ET

WWE's already tried Great American Bash & Capitol Punishment.

Would be stupid to say World War 3, I think the Royal Rumble set up is a lot better than a 60 man battle royal that lasts half the time.

"Spin the Wheel, Make a Deal" would be cool They already do it on Raw, but it would be cool to learn the stipulation of the match, halfway through the ppv your watching, not 3 weeks in advance.

February 17, 2014  05:21 AM ET

I always liked "Souled Out", NWO's own pay per view. One that Vince should bring back, King of the Ring.

February 17, 2014  05:21 AM ET

KNow that's not WCW, but.... still......

think you're confused PGH. War Games is like the Elimination chamber, but teams, instead of singles' like it is today.

February 17, 2014  05:25 AM ET

Not pay per view, but WWE should do Clash of Champions like 4 times a year on NBC, kinda like they did Tribute to the Troops, but better.

I'm not confused. The Elimination Chamber with teams is what Survivor Series used to be when it was all teams in elimination matches. The War Games with 3 cages stacked on each other were horrible. Although, World War with the 60 man Battle Royal in 2 side by side rings gives it a real run for its money in the contest of worst WCW PPV!

Oh My Gosh.

War games is 2 rings side by side enclosed by a cage- almost Hell in a Cell-ish. The only thing close to SSeries is the fact there are teams. Plus War Games is not elimination and the ONLY way to win is submission. Finally the staggered additions to the match.

The 3 cages on top of each other WAS NOT WARGAMES- It was a Stupid Idea for a Stupid movie by a stupid company.

Last but NOT least- the 60 Man Battle Royal was THREE rings- and they were not normally side by side.

WCW wasn't stupid, it was Russo running it to the ground.

Wrestle Mania isn't a poo PPV, and usually the PPV running right after Mania has a stacked card as well. #use2bCALLED #BackLASH

Wyatt Family vs the Shield Sunday is goin' to be BIG.

February 18, 2014  02:38 AM ET

Bring back Bash at the Beach Bo1!

February 18, 2014  05:03 AM ET

Haha Probably the best choice out the bunch. They should go back to Daytona, that way PCH could see it, LIVE.

OR, or, OR, just bring back Saturday Night Main Event. WWE needs to hire me. I'd chill with P.S. Hayes.

So sorry I confused Wrestle Crap worthy WCW PPVs. Maybe the 3 tiered cage thing was SuperBrawl. Doesn't really matter, but it was a WCW PPV that Hogan and Macho Man won by beating those not so great crappy actors turned wrestlers Jeep Swenson and Tiny Lestor (Zeus). in the last tier of the cage.
