WWE Could Be Making Huge Change To PLEs After Draft

WWE Draft Adam Pearce Sonya Deville

It looks like the constantly changing environment in WWE at the moment could be about to expand to Premium Live Events.

Last night on Monday Night RAW there was another massive change to the landscape, as Triple H announced the introduction of a new WWE World Heavyweight Championship. With the impending brand split starting this Friday on SmackDown, the new title belt would go to whichever brand didn’t draft current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns.

However, it would now seem that this isn’t the only big change which could come about as part of the draft. WRKD Wrestling is reporting that WWE could be set to separate Premium Live Events by brand, meaning only superstars from each brand would appear on specific events.

One format discussed after the announcement of the draft and the introduction of the new World Heavyweight championship on #WWERaw is the idea of potential brand exclusive premium live monthly events.

As you can imagine, discussion around this comes with a lot of pros and cons. Whilst limiting the matches on each event, it does allow those superstars on each brand more opportunity and time, rather than competing against each other on the same events. It also adds a new element to Survivor Series, where you will know who exactly is representing each brand.

It’s also important to stress that this is only seemingly a discussion at the moment, and there has been no formal word from WWE that this is the direction they are planning on going.

As you would expect with the draft, there has been plenty of speculation who could be moved to which brand, with the future of several NXT Superstars apparently up in the air amid talks of move to Raw or SmackDown.
