In its never ending quest to beat its fans over the head with as much content as possible, WWE decided to start pairing NXT TakeOver events with major pay-per-views. The latest is the TakeOver: Toronto showcase just one night before Survivor Series, which is set for Nov. 20, 2016.
That’s all well and good. Content is king and all that.
That said, a quick look at the WWE Network schedule shows that Survivor Series will be a six hour show, two for the Kickoff and four for the main PPV. That’s in additional to the two-and-a-half hours one must set aside to watch TakeOver: Toronto.
Both cards look good, or at least feature some interesting match-ups that could very well prove to be worth the time. But asking fans to watch NINE hours of wrestling across two nights — with another three hours for Monday Night Raw the next night and another two for SmackDown Live the night after that — is ridiculous.
It’s just too much.
Have mercy, WWE. Please.
