The WWE brand split will be returning soon and it looks like Raw and SmackDown will each be getting their own exclusive pay-per-views. Yesterday a leaked picture of the revised WWE pay-per-view schedule surfaced on the Internet and it got everybody talking.
The schedule revealed that WWE is planning to bring back old school pay-per-view names such as Backlash, No Mercy and Clash of the Champions and it also revealed which shows would be exclusive to Raw and SmackDown. PWInsider is now reporting that the schedule is legitimate and it has been confirmed by Sky Italy. It’s also worth noting that Ticketmaster recently changed the listing for Night of Champions to Clash of the Champions.
