This is part three of what should be a ten part series on WWE Pay Per View events.  If this is your first time reading this series, please check out part one – “Why I  hate:  No Way Out” and part two – “Why I hate:  WWE Backlash

Having already stated my case against No Way Out and Backlash, two events that I feel strongly about because of their placement on the calendar in relation to WrestleMania, it may be difficult to write about Judgement Day.  Started as an In Your House event in October of 1998, the annual May Pay Per View event almost seems pointless to me.

I present my arguments against WWE Judgment Day, after the jump!

WWE Judgment Day (May)

I said last week in my Backlash argument that I don’t mind there being a show in between WrestleMania and SummerSlam.  I really don’t.  This isn’t the one I’d keep, though.  It’s two months after WrestleMania, but still three months before SummerSlam.  It almost seems off balance, particularly if we get rid of all of the other secondary shows.  Hell, even if we keep the rest of the secondary PPVs, Judgment day is still off balance, seeing as there are two gimmick PPVs the following month.  If we took Extreme Rules (formerly One Night Stand) or Night of Champions and moved one of them up to May, we’d have no use for Judgment Day.

In the grand scheme of things, even if WWE only cut back to a dozen Pay Per Views per year instead of 14, Judgment Day is easily the first one on the chopping block.  If I were running the show, however, there would be one Pay Per View that I’d give the axe to, and that’s Extreme Rules.  That, however, is a story for next week, so please join me here this Sunday at Noon for my thoughts on the first of the two June Pay Per View events!
