I don't think they'll ever go back to 4 pay per views a year unless their buyrates take such a nosedive that it becomes exorbitantly expensive to do 12 a year. While they aren't what they used to be they're still making decent money and I doubt WWE will ever give up on something that's still paying off good.
The international PPV idea isn't feasible due to timezones & spoilers. If a US resident can go & read the results online ("Oh... Triple H won again...") why would they bother ordering the PPV?[/quote]
Thats a load of crap, fans not in the states sit to ungodly hours in the morning to watch every single pay-per-view live. There is no reason that u.s. fans couldn't do the same thing. In saying that, it would probably need to be one of the big 4, as just some random ppv wouldn't get buy-rates just based on the fact it was in another country. Would love to see them do a rumble at wembly or the millenium stadium or old trafford.

this is a very unpopular opinion i know, but i say they should keep the 4/5 majors and bring back IYH for every other month, it gets redundant trying to build up every months ppv to be the biggest event ever when most are no better than raw/sd, so why not have the not-so-important ppvs at a slightly cheaper price to encourage buyrates? IYH always had classic matches too so its not as if the wrestlers werent giving it their all
