WWE changes up PPV schedule for remainder of 2018

WWE's pay-per-view schedule for the rest of the year has had a couple of changes.

TLC was scheduled to take place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on October 21, but that will no longer be happening. A "WWE Live Supershow," featuring wrestlers from Raw and SmackDown and with Ronda Rousey advertised, has instead been announced for the venue on that date. WWE has confirmed that it will be a house show.

TLC will instead be held in San Jose, California on December 16. That is in place of Clash of Champions, which was originally announced as the December PPV.

With TLC moving to December, WWE Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia is the only PPV currently listed for October. The previous schedule had four PPVs taking place in a 10-week span.

PWInsider first reported the news of the schedule change.

Here's what WWE's updated PPV calendar looks like for the remainder of 2018:

July 15 -- Extreme Rules (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
August 19 -- SummerSlam (Brooklyn, New York)
September 16 -- Hell in a Cell (San Antonio, Texas)
October 6 -- WWE Super Show-Down (Melbourne, Australia)
November 18 -- Survivor Series (Los Angeles, California)
December 16 -- TLC (San Jose, California)

That's the problem. I just think it will be even worse this year simply because the build to every PPV since after Mania has just been the same sh*t all over again without any stories that actually move forward week by week.

Nothing will ever convince them that Hell in a Cell is the worst Pay Per View in the line up will they?

Survivor Series is the worst, but the real issue is how they use them. I don't like the gimmick PPVs, but they wouldn't be so bad if WWE actually set things up long term and ensured that they always had an HIAC-worthy feud to blow off at HIAC in HIAC.

...and it's frustrating because Survivor Series should be one of the better ones. If they followed the original formula, team captains choosing teams, and built a card of a couple title matches and 4 Five-Man Elimination Tag matches, considering the roster right now, we'd get a hell of a show with the better part of the roster actually being on it.

Hell in a Cell is fine. We can count on a crazy cage match once a year, build or no build, I like those. I'll take that over TLC or Extreme Rules...

Agreed. If HIAC replaced Survivor Series as the November Big Four I'd be down with it. But the fact that a gimmick like that is relegated to a B-PPV makes me more irrationally angry than the worst Survivor Series ever could.
