— In a follow-up to a previous story about WWE changing the start times of PPVs beginning with Money in the Bank, the company’s plan is to end the “B” rated PPVs at 1030 PM ET instead of 11 PM ET, though the block they have reserved does end at 11 PM, giving them the flexibility to run that long if needed.
— The “A” shows – Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and Survivor Series are being targeted to end at 11 PM ET, which would make them a total of five hours, including the one hour Kick Off Show. WrestleMania is being penciled in to end at midnight ET, which would make it a six-and-a-half hour show.
— The Kick Off shows would have matches beginning at 630 PM ET for the lower PPVs, at 6 PM ET for SummerSlam, Survivor Series and Royal Rumble while WrestleMania’s Kick Off Show will begin at 530 PM ET.
