Email increases speculation WWE is moving to dual-brand PPVs

WWE Backlash

An email to ticketholders of May's WWE Backlash has increased speculation that the company will soon move back to dual-branded monthly PPV events.

On Monday, New Jersey's Prudential Center sent out an email to ticketholders mentioning that the show is a dual branded event and not just Raw only.

In discussing the situation on last night's Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported he was told that an announcement was forthcoming. When contacted for official comment, WWE said they have nothing to announce at this time.

Dave and Bryan Alvarez discussed some of the logistics of a potential move on WOR including whether the shows would need to be extended due to the amount of championships.

WWE currently has four dual branded PPVs: WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, Survivor Series, and SummerSlam. Additionally, this year's Money In The Bank event was also to include both brands.

The company relaunched their split brand approach in the summer of 2016, moving to the split brand PPVs soon after.
