My unpopular opinion:

PaperThinWalls sucks. :P

Jokes aside, I definately think WWE should go back to only having like 4 PPVs a year at most.

I don't like WarGames. Or rather, I don't like the fact that one match requires an entire show to feature two rings.

Alexa Bliss is quite boring when you take away how good she is for reaction gifs.

I don't think Braun Strowman would be as popular as he is now if, and only if, he hadn't had this feud with Roman Reigns.  And hey, I think Braun Strowman's awesome.  But what if he never feuded with Roman.

Braun was popular before the Roman feud. It solidified him as a top star, but he was already a big fan favorite. Really, he was going to be popular no matter what...once he found his voice and got comfortable.

No doubt.

Worth it cause the matches were pretty lit.

6 would be fine with me. Even 12 could work, if aside from the big four, they alternate between Raw and Smackdown, allowing for most to have a two month window to build angles. Something like this:

 

January - Royal Rumble (both)

February - No Way Out (Smackdown)

March - Wrestlemania (both)

April - Backlash (Raw)

May - Payback (Smackdown)

June - MITB (both)

July - Battleground (Raw)

August - Summerslam (both)

September - No Mercy (Smackdown)

October - Unforgiven (Raw)

November - Survivor Series (both - maybe a Bragging rights format?)

December - Vengeance (Smackdown)

 

Then switch the next year, so the first brand exclusive is No Way Out in February, which is Raw.

 

Also I'd bin the gimmick PPVs, and use Hell in a cell and Elimination Chamber matches as they were intended - rare occurrences that are used when the situation calls for it.

If you want to get rid of PPVs get rid of the one between the Rumble and Mania.

I was thinking about that, but if you're splitting the shows equally, then one is going to get more PPVs than the other if you miss a month. I do think it does somewhat diminish the importance of the Rumble, especially as it's an Elimination Chamber theme. The Rumble was there to determine the title match for Mania, the one who defended in the title match against the Rumble winner.

Yep, same here. You could either have the elimination chamber before the Rumble like they used to or lose another PPV to make up the difference.

Disagree. I love the Chamber being the last chance to main event WrestleMania. To get that main event you have to either outlast 29 other people or survive one of the most brutal matches in WWE history.

I know right?  If Braun wasn't feuding with Roman, people would look at him as yet another one of Vince's big man fetishes.  Maybe Big Show might have been able to get fans to like him, but not so much in comparison to Roman Reigns.  Cause obviously he is so hated by everybody.

Yeah, no way to tell but the Roman feud really helped him.

Exactly.  Now tell that to everybody that refuses to give Roman any credit or how his opponents have to carry him (which once again, Braun Strowman carrying anybody is laughable) or how his opponents are wrestling invisible men.  Wrestling fans can be idiots sometimes.  But we already know that.

 

Now this unpopular opinion I know I'm gonna get flamed for probably but.....I don't think Finn Balor should be Universal champion again or on Raw for that matter.

With the way the Universal title scene is looking right now, I agree. I also agree that he shouldn't be on RAW, either. He's not being used bad at all on RAW, but I feel like he'd be better off on SmackDown for some reason.

I don't think Smackdown has room for him, honestly. 

 

And I'm not against him being champion again, but he needs more personality before that's an option.

Finn Balor should've stayed in Japan. He's been unbelievably uninteresting. It's fun to play along with his black jacket-entrance, but everything else about him is so dead.
