WWE Survivor Series 2016 will be a 6 hour show, and it’s just too much

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.
