WWE schedule, list of PPVs for 2020: Most pay-per-view matches, WWE 2019 PPV schedule



Pay-per-view (PPV) is a type of pay television and webcast service by which any viewer can pay for the events to view via private telecast. The broadcaster telecasts the event at the same time to everyone who is ordering it. WWE Pay-Per-View events are available through DIRECTV. In 2019, 27 events took place between the main brand, TakeOver events, and Saudi Arabia specials. So far for 2020, there are nine confirmed shows which are mostly TakeOver events -with Survivor Series, the last of the Big 4 events are yet to be officially announced with a location or date.

WWE has been broadcasting PPV events since the year1980. The classic “Big Four” events -Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series were first established. The company’s PPV lineup expanded to a monthly basis in the mid-1990 and expanded even further in the early-2000s. WWE also produced additional international PPVs between 1997 and 2003. These events weren’t available within us and coincided with overseas tours within the UK. The traditional “Big Four” events continued to showcase the roster, while the remaining PPV events were alternated between Raw and SmackDown cards. In 2008, WWE PPV events began broadcasting in high-definition on channels.

WWE PPV events are around 3½ hours to 4 hours in length whereas WWE’s WrestleMania events are approximately 5 to 5½ hours in length. WWE also airs a pre-show before most Network events which are known as the Kickoff show. Each Kickoff show includes matches, interviews, and a panel of experts previewing. The Kickoff pre-show began as a 30-minute show before expanding to 1 hour, beginning with Night of Champions in September 2014. The “Big Four” Kickoff shows are the longest, at 2 hours. Originally known as Fallout, and later known as Raw Talk and Talking Smack during the brand-only events, each post-show includes interviews and a panel of experts analyzing the event. The post-shows vary in length.
