Because U Demanded It: WWE PPVs to Now Be Even Longer

WWE has heard what so many wrestling fans have been complaining about: their televised wrestling events just aren't long enough. Well, far be it from WWE to deny the fans what they want (unless it's a Roman Reigns heel turn), so starting with June's Money in the Bank, all WWE PPVs will start at 7 instead of 8, and will reportedly run for at least 4 hours.

Bryan Alvarez reported the news on Twitter:

The move to longer PPVs coincides with a return to dual-branded PPVs, which means that feuds from both Raw and Smackdown will need to be featured at every show. It also coincides with an upcoming move by NBCUniversal to cut commercial time from WWE's weekly non-PPV shows, meaning those will technically be longer as well.

What a time to be a wrestling fan!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
