Beginning with the Money in the Bank PPV on June 17 from Chicago, WWE will be increasing the length of all Pay Per View events to a four-hour minimum per multiple wrestling media reports on Monday night.
WWE is said to have informed many of their main domestic and international PPV providers, including InDemand and Sky TV, that the Money in the Bank PPV will be pushed back from its usual 8:00 PM ET start time to a 7:00 PM start time and that most PPV events will begin at 7:00 PM ET going forward.
This means that the Kickoff pre-shows will likely start at 6:00 PM ET.
It is also said that the WWE’s four major PPVs (WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and the Royal Rumble) will all become five-hour PPV events going forward. This is being done as a way to accommodate both rosters for RAW and Smackdown Live, with all non-major events being co-branded on the WWE Network.
WWE has not issued any comment nor confirmation on this reported change.
