Worst WWE PPVs Ever

A list of the most atrocious ppv's iv'e ever seen in my life

The Top Ten

1 December to Dismember 2006 December to Dismember 2006

WWE's version of this PPV is absolute garbage and killed any continuation of what ECW was really all about - htoutlaws2012

This sucks this sucks this sucks!

This was NOT extreme!

Does WCW count?
If not, this is the best WORST ppv ever.

2 Wrestlemania 11 Wrestlemania 11

There wasn't a good match on the card.5/10 the only thing that I like is it's mostly celebrites but other than that this was terrible - htoutlaws2012

This isn't even in the top 10 of worst WMs.

Something's wrong with you if you don't think this is a top 5 worst wrestlemania of all time. - htoutlaws2012


3 Wrestlemania 9 Wrestlemania 9

The only taker match to end in a DQ finish not only that but the entire card was weak even the finish was horrible - htoutlaws2012

4 Over The Edge 1999 Over The Edge 1999

Owen Hart Died during his entrance after the the cord snapped and went crashing into the ring, The worst part was Mr. McMahon didn't stop the Pay Per View. - egnomac

I wouldn't call it bad but it was ruined by Owen harts unneeded death.

To me if you take death into context you could argue that, but match quality wise it was very depressing as the show went on. - htoutlaws2012

One of the most saddest PPV's I ever saw. - htoutlaws2012

5 Summerslam 2010 Summerslam 2010

Big Show made CM Punk & the SES look like the Spirit Squad. Bottom line is that Nexus should have won, thus elevating the members of nexus to higher heights than they were before. What pleased me and had me applauding for the event that time was Daniel Bryan returning. few months before that, Daniel Bryan got released for choking that Justin Roberts. How I reacted to that was by printing out pictures of Justin Roberts & Mr McMahon, putting them in my toilet, taking a gigantic on the toilet along with the pictures of Justin Roberts & Vince McMahon, then I flushed the toilet

All the matches were forgettable except for the main event which also sucked another PPV where cena buries a potential stable after that the nexus were from 7 to 5 this was absolutely terrible - htoutlaws2012

6 King of the Ring 1999 King of the Ring 1999

The matches were bad and Billy gunn winning the KOTR made it even worst - htoutlaws2012

1995 kotr was worse but this sucked too

7 Battleground 2013 Battleground 2013

This has to be the worst PPV yet in the year of 2013. WWE has gotten much boring and stupid for coming up with ridiculous ideas including the WWE Championship remain vacant.

This is the either the worst ending to a PPV or one of because the match was doing fine then big slow stops the match dumb. - htoutlaws2012

8 Capitial Punishment 2011 Capitial Punishment 2011

John cena buries R-truth in this match and everything else sucked - htoutlaws2012

So bad. I wish I never see a ppv like that again.

Everything in the card sucked, and no other ppvs can compare to this. Even Hardy vs Sting from Victory Roads 2011 was entertaining compared to this crap! The worst wrestling ppv ever!

To be honest this ppv wasant that bad it was just too obvious cena was going to retain why couldn't they give r truth the belt why

9 Summerslam 1993 Summerslam 1993

One of the stupidest ways to be proud of a count-out victory. - htoutlaws2012

10 Unforgiven 2007 Unforgiven 2007

Nothing but boring and horrible matches. - egnomac

Very forgettable PPV all around. - htoutlaws2012

The Contenders

11 The Great American Bash 2004 The Great American Bash 2004

Eddie didn't even wear his trademark hat for his match

The Only good matches on the card were Rey Mysterio vs Chavo Guerrero and The Texas Bullrope match between JBL & Eddie Guerrero. - egnomac

Bad PPV, Bad finish - htoutlaws2012


12 Royal Rumble 2014 Royal Rumble 2014

I didn't think they could ruin the Royal Rumble Match but they did: Daniel Bryan vs Bray Wyatt awesome match, Lesnar vs Bigshow was more of a segment than an actual match, WWE World Title match decent but the crowd completely hated it and the Royal Rumble match was awful with the exception of Roman Reigns breaking Kane's Royal Rumble record WWE screw up by having Batista win the rumble match they should have just have Daniel Bryan win the Rumble instead since Batista's Rumble win was meaningless. - egnomac

Batista wins the rumble nobody wanted him to go over, then the next day punk was done with the company and took his ball to UFC can you really blame him. - htoutlaws2012

Batista wins the rumble match (don't hate me) but I didn't mind it, however if your going to have batista winning at lease have no rumours of his return and have the crowd go ballistic when he returns and wins rather than returning the damm night before then people would be happy

This ppv just sucked. December to dismember was bad but this was way worse. The matches were too long, cm punk left after this event, Batista came back when nobody asked for him back, and Daniel Bryan didn't get to compete in the rumble.

13 The Bash 2009 The Bash 2009

The Jericho vs Mysterio match was the only match worth watching all the other matches flat out sucked and the WWE Championship 3 Stages of Hell match between Triple H and Orton was put together at the last minute. - egnomac

14 Payback 2017

@htoutlaws2012 You're thinking of Backlash. Mahal didn't have a match on this PPV, but he did get involved in that terrible Wyatt vs Orton "House of Horrors" match. - RalphBob

This PPV was really bad. The best match was The Bar vs The Hardys, and even then that was the worst out of the three PPV matches the two teams had against eachother. Don't get me started on that awful Orton vs Wyatt match. - RalphBob

It sucked because they fought Jinder Mahal was a rating champion and actually book Mahal to win? Okay In India alright, but in America & Britain are you kidding me? - htoutlaws2012

15 No Way Out 2007 No Way Out 2007

This was to hype WM 23 I.D.K if it was that bad it was alright. - htoutlaws2012

16 Survivor Series 2006 Survivor Series 2006

Possively the worst Survivor series PPV I've ever watched in my opinion - htoutlaws2012

V 1 Comment
17 Survivor Series 2008 Survivor Series 2008

Nearly all of the matches sucked, the first traditional survivor series match was so so, the casket match was a flop the Divas Survivor Series match was boring, The Team Batista vs Team Orton could have been better, the WWE Championship match was complicity screwed up when they put Edge in the match near the ending the only good match was The John Cena vs Chris Jericho World Title match. - egnomac

18 Royal Rumble 1995
19 Wrestlemania 29 Wrestlemania 29

Very disappointing match card stale PPV with no heel turns and a bad ending with cena winning the title again the only match that's worth looking back at it's Punk vs taker and that's all I got to say about this PPV sequal matches just sucked - htoutlaws2012

This was not bad! It was good. Cena ' s match sucked...
But Taker vs Punk and HHH bs Lesnar were worth watching

20 Money In The Bank 2014 Money In The Bank 2014

This paper view is the worst thing

The matches were good for the most part but the main event was too predictable

It started off ok then midway was boring matches after another followed by a horrible BS main event that was too predictable and for the most part boring definitely the worst PPV of 2014 - htoutlaws2012

21 Royal Rumble 2013 Royal Rumble 2013

Cena wins rumble nobody wanted to see another Rock vs Cena match. - htoutlaws2012

22 King of the Ring 1995

Should be up higher. This ppv had no good matches, the tournament booking was terrible, and mabel won the kotr (I like him but undertaker deserved it instead). This event was so bad that even fans chanted out ECW.


Mable as King, A Mable-Savio main event, and Bob "Spark Plug" Holly vs The Roadie was the best match on the card

23 Royal Rumble 2006 Royal Rumble 2006

They shouldn't of put the rumble in the middle, and Cena vs Edge was really bad. The actual rumble was good, though. - RalphBob

Its good, but not the greatest rumble I've ever seen, Its only notable for having the wackiest booked show of any Royal Rumble. - htoutlaws2012

The booking on this show was wack you had 2 title matches at the end of the card and you have the RR in the middle of the card cena winning made no sense and the WHC match was bad - htoutlaws2012

24 Wrestlemania 27 Wrestlemania 27

Miz in the main event really, cole vs lawler more time then most of card like what, snooki appears like why - htoutlaws2012

Was a good ppv, but The Rock ruined the main event by making my favorite fighter John Cena lose. I'm so glad cena got his revenge on rock two years after WM27

It had some underrated matches in the beginning, but as the night went on it kept getting worse right up to the main event which I had no interest in either wrestler at the time. - htoutlaws2012

25 Fatal 4-Way (2010) Fatal 4-Way (2010)

Very forgettable show - htoutlaws2012

26 In Your House 8: Beware of Dog In Your House 8: Beware of Dog

This event is special because the ppv wasn't bad due to poor booking or bad wrestling. It was bad because, right after the second match, severe thunderstorms made the power go out. The live audience could barely see what was happening, and the ppv audience could only see nothing but a black screen. Vince went nuts and spent the whole event trying to fix everything. Once the power came back on, it was the main event. They had to reschedule it two days later with Beware of Dog 2, which showed the televised matches, and 3 extra ones, which included a casket match between Undertaker and Goldust. It was surreal, and it was the only ppv ever to be held in South Carolina, which I guess is something.

27 WrestleMania 2 WrestleMania 2

Almost all these matches weren't that good and some of these took place in different venues which they never tried doing since cause it sucked. - htoutlaws2012

28 Royal Rumble 2015

Lesnar vs Cena vs Rollins might be the best match of 2015, but the main event of WWE was so horrible, because everyone knew Roman Reigns will win the Royal Rumble match and everything about it was so botche, I thought Daniel Bryan will win the Royal Rumble, but it's just Roman Reigns, I love Roman Reigns, but come on everyone knew that he was going to win.

This was the birth of the hatred you know today for Roman Reign's way too strong booking of the Royal Rumble. - htoutlaws2012

29 Backlash 2002 Backlash 2002

The one PPV from this year that I think is the worst in that year Triple H vs Hogan was awful, and the rest was very forgettable - htoutlaws2012

30 Summerslam 2003 Summerslam 2003

One of the most overrated summerslams ever horrible card, bad main event lesnar vs Angle was the only good match - htoutlaws2012

31 TLC 2013 TLC 2013

Yeah great idea having handicap matches that backfired. - htoutlaws2012

32 Insurrextion 2002 Insurrextion 2002

Total, unacceptable crap. Taker/HHH is one of the worst Main Events I've ever seen to be honest.

33 Survivor Series 2015

The worst paper view I have ever seen! I know December to dismember was awful but this deserves to be at least number 2

Nothing really stands out about this PPV other than it's hugely a letdown from the previous year. - htoutlaws2012

34 Over The Limit 2012

The main event was just wow...

35 Wrestlemania 16 Wrestlemania 16

Although there was 2 good matches it can't be forgiven with the messed up ending we got. - htoutlaws2012

36 Hell In a Cell 2013 Hell In a Cell 2013

All of the matches were boring and they didn't even have a handicap match between Paul Heyman ryback and CM Punk

37 Wrestlemania 21 Wrestlemania 21

No this was a good PPV, the title matches were the only bad parts but the show as a whole was good. - htoutlaws2012

38 Wrestlemania 18 Wrestlemania 18

One of these things is not like the other things, one of these things just doesn't belong...

How the hell did you have wrestlemania 18 as one of the worst ppv. you had hogan vs the rock, stone cold vs scott hall, ric flair vs undertaker and triple h vs jericho for the WWE champion and they were all good matches

39 Money in The Bank 2015 Money in The Bank 2015

Very Bad show all superstars that got put over shouldn't have worst PPV this year 2 years in a row - htoutlaws2012

40 WrestleMania X-Seven WrestleMania X-Seven

One of the greatest PPV's ever. - htoutlaws2012

Not a popular opinion...Best ppv next to wrestlemania 19

Horrible and overrated show Jericho vs Regal was boring, APA and Tazz vs RTC was too short and boring, Chyna having a squash match is stupid at a WM, That murderer vs Bitch Angle is the same match as always, TLC was the same match as the year before, Undertaker vs HHH is the same match they always have, Hardcore match with Kane Big Show and jobber Raven was corny and cheesy, Jobber battle royal, Vince McMahon having the same hardcore match getting beat up as always against his son Shane and Stone Overrated Austin beat The Rock in the same match as always and a epic fail heel turn, this simply was the worst or most boring WM of all time I rather watch WM 29 and Hogan vs Andre was way better than this overrated dumb PPV

41 Unforgiven 2003 Unforgiven 2003

I guess except I thought the orton vs HBK was good but the rest of the show wasn't. - htoutlaws2012

42 Cyber Sunday 2007
43 Vengeance: Night Of The Champions

Cm punk and chris benoit were meant to face each other - XtremeNerdz12

44 Heroes of Wrestling

Not a WWE PPV, but its is indeed iconically awful. - htoutlaws2012
