WWE: Complete 2018 pay-per-view schedule

PWinsider recently revealed WWE’s pay-per-view schedule for 2018 and the schedule has two interesting and noticeable changes as WWE has removed the Great Balls of Fire and No Mercy pay-per-views from the schedule. Plus, Money-in-the-Bank will be a joint production of both RAW and SmackDown LIVE, meaning that five pay-per-views will feature both brands for the first time in the brand split. This year’s Money-in-the-Bank was exclusive to SmackDown LIVE and featured a Men’s Money-in-the-Bank Ladder Match and a Women’s Money-in-the-Bank Ladder Match.

Much like they did in 2017, WWE has done some minor changes to the lineup as some pay-per-views will be RAW exclusive that were SmackDown LIVE exclusive in 2017 and vice versa as well as Extreme Rules being moved from June to September (essentially replacing No Mercy). Overall, RAW will have five RAW exclusive pay-per-views, SmackDown LIVE will have four, and five pay-per-views will feature both brands. Here is the WWE pay-per-view schedule for 2018:

  • January 28 – The 31st annual WWE Royal Rumble (RAW & SmackDown LIVE) from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA
  • February 25 – WWE Elimination Chamber (RAW) from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV
  • March 11 – WWE Fastlane (SmackDown LIVE) from the Value City Arena at the Jerome Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH
  • April 8 – WWE WrestleMania 34 (RAW & SmackDown LIVE) from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA
  • May 6 – WWE Backlash (RAW) from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ
  • May 27 – WWE Payback (SmackDown LIVE) from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD
  • June 17 – WWE Money-in-the-Bank (RAW & SmackDown LIVE) from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL
  • July 15 – WWE Battleground (RAW) from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, PA
  • August 19 – The 31st annual WWE SummerSlam (RAW & SmackDown LIVE) from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY
  • September 16 – WWE Extreme Rules (RAW) from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX
  • September 30 – WWE Hell in a Cell (SmackDown LIVE) from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN
  • October 21 – WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders, & Chairs (RAW) from the TD Garden in Boston, MA
  • November 18 – The 32nd annual WWE Survivor Series (RAW & SmackDown LIVE) from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA
  • December 16 – WWE Clash of Champions (SmackDown LIVE) from the SAP Pavilion at San Jose in San Jose, CA

    Wait, what? They’re already dropping Great Balls of Fire? Was it that big of a loss for them last year? I’m a little disappointed about that. I hope that their doubled efforts behind Money in the Bank ends up working out well for them. They like to keep us guessing, huh?

      I’m surprised by that choice as well! I didn’t watch it last time, but I thought it was well received by other fans. I’ll be tuning in on Jan 28th for the Royal Rumble since I usually watch every year and am afraid to miss out. Anyone else?

    Backlash in May is about 45 minutes from my house so I’m pretty stoked about that. Summer Slam is a little farther away but still an easy commute. Either event would be awesome to attend.
