We’re back again with the final WWE pay per view of 2017 and the follow up to Survivor Series. That’s right — tonight is the Clash of Champions at TD Garden Arena in Boston, Massachusetts. One might think the PPV name would actually have been more appropriate for the aforementioned Series, where Raw and SmackDown…

After a month off since WWE TLC 2017 it’s time for the annual fall tradition known as Survivor Series. This year the show takes place at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas and is expected to be SIX HOURS LONG if you include the two hour pre-show. If you’re going to be there live make sure…

It has been just over a month since SummerSlam 2017 took place, and the fallout from that event in Brooklyn has taken us all the way to the other coast for No Mercy 2017 in Los Angeles. Brock Lesnar was able to successfully defend his Universal Heavyweight Title, but the vicious beating laid on him…

Thankfully, Great Balls of Fire is over now, and we can move on to a more sensibly named WWE Pay-Per-View like Battleground 2017. Oddly though, the main event of Battleground may be sillier than the hard-hitting, fast-paced Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe match for the Universal Title last time. Instead of that epic brawl, we…

Money in the Bank is a Pay-Per-View name that makes sense. You’ve got a contract that’s worth “money” locked away inside a briefcase, suspended over the top of a wrestling ring. You climb a ladder, retrieve the briefcase and “bank” that contract for a future title shot until you “cash in.” Even in the reality…

The SmackDown brand had their turn two weeks ago with Backlash, so now it’s time for WWE’s Raw brand to get EXTREME with the 2017 edition of Extreme Rules live on WWE Network. As is tradition at MMAOddsBreaker, we’re here to bring you the latest betting odds for Sunday’s show, which includes a fatal five-way…

As is the tradition every two to three weeks (most months anyway) it’s time for another WWE Pay-Per-View with all but the “big four” being divided up into separate brand events. This time it’s SmackDown’s turn up to bat for Backlash 2017, and we’re here to give you the latest and greatest odds so you…

A long four weeks has passed since WrestleMania 33 concluded what to many wrestling fans feels like a “full season” of WWE. Many of the things you probably expected (and which we predicted) happened — Brock Lesnar beat Bill Goldberg for the Universal Title, Roman Reigns beat Undertaker, and so on. We did get a few nice “Mania…

We’ve gotten out of the Fastlane and the road to WrestleMania finally comes to an end on Sunday. It’s time for a show WWE has branded “the ultimate thrill ride” to finally take place — WrestleMania 33 at Camping Ground Stadium in Orlando, Florida on April 2nd, 2017. It’s the biggest wrestling spectacular of the…

We’re nearing ever closer to WrestleMania 33 in Orlando on April 2nd, and with Elimination Chamber out of the way, we know that Bray Wyatt goes in as the WWE Champion. Who will be the Universal Champion though? That’s to be determined at Fastlane on March 5th as Kevin Owens defends against Bill Goldberg. What…

After a two year hiatus, the Elimination Chamber returns with a vengeance this Sunday at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona — the same venue that played host to UFC’s BJ Penn vs. Yair Rodriguez card just a month ago. Why do I bring this up? Because both events took advantage of the…

A six week break since Roadblock: End of the Line transpired has given the fans time to build up their hunger for the return of World Wrestling Entertainment to pay per view. The funny thing is you don’t really need to make them ravenous for the Royal Rumble, which is by widespread agreement one of…

Two weeks have gone by since WWE TLC 2016 which means it’s time for another WWE PPV. This one is called Roadblock: End of the Line and it’s coming to you from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The last show was a SmackDown roster exclusive, so this one will feature the stars of…

After the shocking conclusion to WWE Survivor Series 2016 last month, with last minute changes that confounded both the oddsmakers and the casual viewer, we are back for TLC 2016 on the WWE Network. Unlike Survivor Series this event is a brand exclusive pay per view, so all of the featured wrestlers and featured matches…

Other than WrestleMania, Survivor Series is the longest running annual WWE pay-per-view, having held more events dating back to 1987 than either the Royal Rumble or SummerSlam. Of course in referencing those other shows we’ve just made something abundantly clear – Survivor Series is one of the “big four” shows that are the signature of…

For those who needed a quick break from frequently occurring big WWE events, the last few weeks since No Mercy 2016 have given us all time to chill. Break’s over though – it’s time to step on the gas and put your foot down through the floor. Four more events are on tap for the…

The WWE Raw brand took over last time at Clash of Champions 2016, and now it’s time for the SmackDown brand to be on top again as No Mercy name returns for the first time since 2008. In a show that features a title vs. career match, a tag team title match, a women’s title…

It’s that time again! Two weeks after the exclusive SmackDown brand Backlash 2016 pay per view, WWE has returned for the Raw exclusive brand Clash of Champions on September 25, 2016 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The blood has been boiling ever since Triple H interfered in the match to crown a new…

You’re probably thinking WWE SummerSlam 2016 was only a few weeks ago — and you’d be right. As part of this “New Era” that WWE continues to promote we’ve come to the point post-draft where both the WWE Raw and SmackDown Live brands are going to be running separate pay per view events every 2-3…

For those who follow wrestling, you’re well aware of the upcoming WWE Backlash pay-per-view. For those who don’t, I’m shocked you clicked on this article in the first place, but stay with me. Backlash is the first event since the WWE’s latest ‘brand split’ which made their two shows, Raw and Smackdown, into separate entities….

This Sunday marks the first exclusively branded WWE Pay-Per-View since the company decided to revisit the brand extension concept back in July. WWE Backlash will emanate from Richmond, Virginia on the WWE Network and PPV. The short three week break between Summerslam and Backlash will be more common moving forward, as the company has expanded…

It has been a month since WWE Battleground 2016, and the most notable thing to come out of that show was that Dean Ambrose retained the WWE Championship in a triple threat against his former comrades in The Shield. This left WWE Raw with no champion since Dean Ambrose was exclusive to SmackDown Live, so…

July 24th, 2016

After a tumultuous month since WWE Money in the Bank which saw Dean Ambrose win the world title by cashing in a Money in the Bank briefcase, which we later learned was because Roman Reigns was about to be suspended for failing a drug test, we arrive at WWE Battleground on July 24, 2016. If…

Following Extreme Rules last month on the WWE Network we’re back again for the seventh ever edition of Money in the Bank as a stand alone PPV. It’s also WWE’s first ever PPV at the T-Mobile Arena, which only opened a couple of months ago in Las Vegas. It’s also the first major “sports” event…

Just a few weeks after WWE Payback 2016 we’re already back for Extreme Rules, which airs May 22, 2016 on the WWE Network. That may seem to be too soon for another big event, but WWE isn’t afraid to stack these events up in quick succession, given they’ve got a built in audience of over…

It may seem like WrestleMania 32 was just the other day, but four weeks have gone by and it’s already time for the annual WWE Payback PPV, which as it has for two of the last three years will emanate from Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois – so close to Chicago it feels like a…

It’s the “Grandest Stage of Them All” and the “Showcase of the Immortals” – but sports entertainment fans simply call it WRESTLEMANIA. It’s that time of year where every story, every dramatic build up, every feud and every fight come to their ultimate conclusion. Of course it all starts over the next night on WWE…

Welcome back to our monthly WWE pay per view betting odds preview. Last month if you picked Triple H to win the Royal Rumble and claim the World Heavyweight Title you were in good company. He was the favorite going in at -150 and used his position as “The Authority” to enter himself #30 in…

It’s time once again to perform our monthly ritual of previewing a WWE PPV and predicting the results, but events since the Hell in a Cell PPV have made things much less predictable than usual. Thanks to Seth Rollins blowing out his knee at a WWE show in Dublin on their European tour, the WWE…

This is one of those rare months when two “special events” occur on the WWE Network. The last was WWE’s stop at Madison Square Garden on Brock Lesnar’s “Go to Hell” tour. Sunday, October 25th, 2015 will be the FINAL stop on that tour as ‘The Beast Incarnate’ must face his greatest nemesis in The…

October 3rd, 2015

This show is a bit of an aberration in the WWE line-up. It’s not considered a “pay per view” as such, like Night of Champions last month. In fact the next official major event is Hell in a Cell on October 25th. That said this is an official “special event” as far as WWE is…

I’m probably too old school for my own good but I really wasn’t ready for another show yet after SummerSlam. There was something to be said about having 3-4 months between WWE (then WWF) shows that built up your anticipation for the next one. The TV build hasn’t excited me and as much as I…

Last month at WWE Battleground we got an unexpected swerve in the main event between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins. Lesnar was the -180 favorite to take the title back from Rollins, and although I was “technically” right when I said the underdog Rollins would retain, he didn’t do it on his own. Thanks to…

Things didn’t go exactly as predicted at Money in the Bank last month. The consensus opinion was that Roman Reigns would be the one to climb the ladder and collect the briefcase with a guaranteed title shot in it – the betting odds even had him a -420 favorite against the field. Despite that it…

It may seem like there has been a major live event (what could formerly be called a pay per view) on the WWE Network every two weeks. It doesn’t just seem that way though – it IS that way. Just two weeks after Elimination Chamber and for the third time in six weeks, we’re back…

It’s a little odd for WWE to come back with another major event two weeks after the Payback PPV, but it’s easier to understand when you realize that the WWE Network offered a free trial to subscribers for the month of May. Having a card like Elimination Chamber is the hook for grateful viewers to…

Last month at Extreme Rules, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins was able to retain his title by escaping from the cage in a match where Randy Orton was banned from using his signature RKO finish.

It has been a month now since WrestleMania 31, and the landscape of WWE was drastically altered by that show. Going in it was widely believed that Brock Lesnar would retain the World Heavyweight Title, especially given he announced a WWE contract extension before the PPV, and the hard push of Roman Reigns to the…

Sunday night saw the biggest pro wrestling event of the year go down from Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco. Wrestlemania 31 had an intriguing slate of matches on paper, and the instant reaction from fans was that the event exceeded expectations in almost every way.

We have come full circle. One year ago at WrestleMania 30 we all experienced one of the most amazing and unpredictable of WWE’s annual spectacles ever, thanks in large part to Brock Lesnar ending the longest running streak in WrestleMania history – The Undertaker being undefeated.

World Wrestling Entertainment is trying something new this year. In previous years WWE held an event between the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania called Elimination Chamber. The danger of the chamber and its ability to reshape the WrestleMania card were big selling points, and back when there were two world titles, it was often used to…
