WWE PPV's: a possible change?

In recent weeks, there has been much talk about the strange and unusual length that had the last pay-per-view aired by WWE, half from the Orlando Performance Center and half from the Titan Towers of Stamford, the headquarters of the company headquarters.

Money in the Bank lasted less than two and a half hours, a length far less than the usual three hours and passes of which the WWE pay-per-view is usually composed, with the last editions of Wrestlemania that between pre-show and main event came to touch even the 7 or 8 hours of the show.

Apparently, according to what emerged in the hours immediately following the WWE special event in May, the duration of the PPV had been set at about 2 hours and 20 due to the absence of the public in the arena and above all to prevent fans they were bored from home.

According to what was reported in his latest newsletter by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, however, WWE would not have set the duration of all its future ppv to a maximum of two and a half hours as anticipated by different sources.

Money in the Bank was originally scheduled to take place at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland, but the venue cancelled all shows that were to be held in May due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, WWE took advantage of the situation and moved the two titular ladder matches to their global headquarters building in Stamford with a new "Corporate Ladder" gimmick where the match's titular briefcases were suspended above a ring on the building's roof.

The wrestlers began on the ground floor and fought their way to the roof. Eight matches were contested at the event, including one on the Kickoff pre-show. In the main event, Otis and Asuka won their respective Money in the Bank ladder matches, which were contested at the same time.

In other prominent matches, Drew McIntyre defeated Seth Rollins to retain the WWE Championship, Braun Strowman defeated Bray Wyatt to retain the Universal Championship, and Bayley defeated Tamina to retain the SmackDown Women's Championship.
