Exclusive: Money in the Bank set to be 4 hour PPV

Despite not being one of the “Big 4” PPVs, our sources have informed us that the Money in the Bank PPV will be a four show. It was also have a pre-show and post-show, totalling to nearly 6 hours of programming.

The WWE are likely doing this for their shareholders, as “hours watched” is a key metric for the WWE Network. Therefore, if the WWE can hook viewers for an additional hour during a live PPV, with the PPVs clearly be the most watched programming on the Network, then they will significantly raise their “hours watched” metric.
