Big Update On WWE Returning to Dual Brand PPVs, John Cena Rewards Young Fan at Raw, Drew McIntyre Thanks HHH

1

As we first reported yesterday, it appears as if WWE might be moving back to dual branded PPV events going forward, beginning with the WWE Backlash PPV taking place after WrestleMania 34.

Mike Killam’s report added that when WWE does a roster Draft, or in the case of 2017 a “Superstar Shakeup”, they generally like to do them as close to WrestleMania as possible in order to kick off the “new year” of wrestling with a fresh start. This could hint at the return of either the draft or the Superstar Shakeup if WWE intends to have stars from both Raw and Smackdown present at PPV events following WrestleMania.

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, while WWE did not comment on the rumors of the company moving back to dual brand PPV events, an official announcement regarding the change is imminent.
