You have to go somewhere else. We are in strange times in the wrestling world as it isn’t clear where things are going from month to month. Every time that WWE announces a new pay per view, the question becomes where the show is going to be taking place. How many times have you heard “they can’t hold that at the Performance Center can they”? That question might be changing soon though.
One thing that WWE is known for is holding a lot of pay per views. They hold almost one per month and that can be a little bit much to take for some fans. It feels like we are always coming into a pay per view or coming out of another, possibly at the same time. That can get a bit tiresome at times, and if WWE has its way, that will be the case as we move into the fall.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, WWE is currently scheduled to run a regular pay per view every month after Summerslam, plus an extra show in Saudi Arabia in November. This would be the same schedule that WWE had been running previously, though there is always the chance that they could be changed in advance. After Backlash on June 14, the next pay per views are scheduled to be Extreme Rules on July 19 in San Jose, California and then Summerslam on August 23 in Boston, Massachusetts. Summerslam will likely have to be moved, though Extreme Rules is still up in the air.
Below is what WWE had scheduled for PPVs after SummerSlam. TBD if it remains as is:
• Clash of Champions, 9/20, Newark
• Hell In A Cell, 10/18, Atlanta
• Saudi PPV, 11/5
• Survivor Series, 11/22, Dallas
• TLC, 12/20, Chicago

These shows could be good ones. Check out what might be coming:
Opinion: This falls into the category of “I’ll believe it when I see it.” There are only so many reasons to believe that this is going to happen, as it isn’t clear what is going to happen tomorrow, let alone seven months from now. I would love it if we could be back to normal by then, but there is no guarantee that such a thing is going to be an option. It’s a nice idea, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up just yet.
