​Backstage News – WWE To Run Longer PPV Events?, The NXT Roster To Be ‘Raided’ For WWE’s Draft?


According to a report from The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there may be plans to expand WWE pay-per-view events (in addition to WrestleMania and SummerSlam) to more than three hours. WWE is reportedly looking to have longer pay-per-view events as the company has already told Sky Italia to start reserving additional time for their pay-per-views. The network has been told that the duration of their pay-per-view events will vary from month to month so it doesn’t appear that all of their PPVs will go longer than three hours.

Also, WWE is reportedly planning on significantly “raiding” the current WWE NXT roster for their upcoming draft and brand split. During a NXT conference call earlier this week, WWE COO Triple H said he wasn’t sure how the upcoming WWE Draft would affect the NXT brand.


Stay tuned as we hear more.
