REPORT: WWE is adding another pay-per-view a week after SummerSlam

It looks like the rumors about another pay-per-view being added to the schedule are true. However, it won’t be the Evolution show.

As reported by @Wrestlevotes, WWE Payback will take place a week after SummerSlam. This likely means that at least a couple of feuds will continue into Payback. was told that there are other events being discussed for future dates. For years, there have been talks about adding live events or Saturday Night Main Event specials. Live events in arenas are not possible due to the pandemic but SNME specials could help boost subscriber numbers and, as seen in the latest quarter earnings report, the company exceeded expectations for their revenue due to money saved from expenses they didn’t have to incur from running shows with fans.

Paid subscriber numbers are up for the WWE Network and pay-per-view events are the main thing driving people to subscribe.

It is interesting that WWE did not opt to air Payback on Saturday, September 5th, which would go head-to-head with the AEW All Out pay-per-view. In 2019, WWE scheduled EVOLVE 131 to air on the WWE Network against AEW’s Fight For The Fallen show.
