WWE is set to go head-to-head with UFC this July. During the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed two upcoming UFC events being held on the same night as WWE. The events are Money In The Bank (July 2) and SummerSlam (July 30).
“It’s interesting because on July 2nd and July 30th there’s going to be a big UFC pay-per-view. The second, especially. It’s a big UFC against a stadium WWE, head-to-head, same city. 30th, they’re in different cities, but still a head-to-head pay-per-view.
It’s not like years ago when this would’ve been death to WWE. The same weekend used to hurt WWE badly, but the same night would’ve, I don’t want to say killed them, but it would’ve taken probably 15-20% off. Maybe more. Now, a WWE pay-per-view is not a money expenditure, so it’s not like you’re going, ‘I’ve already spent $40 on a pay-per-view on a Saturday night, do I do that again on a Sunday?’”
