From this month itself, Wrestlemania will take over WWE by storm. WWE even has announced next year’s Wrestlemania details which are set to take place in the Orlando Citrus Bowl for the second time. But WWE is not lagging behind when it is coming to post-Wrestlemania planning. According to the reports, WWE has already planned the big pay-per-view in the month of May.
WWE have recently confirmed in a taping from Chicago that they will conduct the second pay-per-view event of May in the form of Payback. It will come from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on May 1st. American ticket sales and distribution company Ticketmaster has already started pre-selling tickets for the event, which can be bought with the passcode PAYBACK. (sources courtesy SportsKeeda)
Now with this news, it is now confirmed that we will see not one but two pay-per-views in May. The first was announced as Extreme Rules which is scheduled to take place on May 22nd, from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
WWE has reordered their schedule of PPV in order to give something fresh to the fans. It will be welcomed by the fans as they will get to witness some change in the PPVs. If WWE goes by the routine, then we generally get the Extreme Rules PPV right after Wrestlemania, in April. Then comes Payback. But, this year the order has changed and the reason behind this is the company is mulling their options available in order to retain their profit, which is on a high in the recent Quarter 4 report.
The franchise is trying to arrange more of WWE Network specials this year just like WWE Roadblock and apparently there are more PPV changes to follow in the coming months.
