Worst WWE PPVs Ever

For every good show there are always some pretty horrific train wrecks of the likes of these. These WWE shows may just be burned right in our skulls as history to never forget that they were indeed the worst Pay-Per-View events to ever take place.

The Top Ten

1 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

More like extremely crappy wrestling. - Nikx

This sucks this sucks this sucks!

This was NOT extreme!

2 Wrestlemania 11

Skip this one. - Nikx

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

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

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

I saw this live... R.I.P. Owen Hart

5 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

6 Summerslam 1993

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

7 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

8 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

The night super Cena killed The Nexu's push. - Nikx

9 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

10 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.

The Contenders

11 Summerslam 2018
12 Survivor Series 2018

I am pretty easy on WWE, but this was just dreadful. - RalphBob

13 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


14 Backlash 2018

If you ignore the Rollins V Miz IC Title match, then this show could've been top 10 or 20 worst PPV's of all time. Charlotte from her Mania match to a generic womens title match, similarly with Nia and Alexa. The WWE championship not ending last AND somehow producing the 2nd best match of the night DESPITE the woeful end booking of draw is mindboggling. But WWE would give us a simple Samoa Joe win though right? No... Reigns isn't strong enough apparently, or loved enough, yeah cause this does the trick? -- Worst PPV of 2018 (so far, by god I hope it is)

All matches but the opener were booked in to the ground and the wwe championship match wasn't the main event insted we go roman vs joe wich was so boring I skiped to the end and this wasnt any of the wrestlers fault it was all down to the very poor booking

15 Extreme Rules 2018
16 Unforgiven 2007

Nothing but boring and horrible matches. - egnomac

Very forgettable PPV all around. - htoutlaws2012

17 Survivor Series 2006

Terrible PPV, and very forgettable - htoutlaws2012

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

18 Money in the Bank 2018
19 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

20 WrestleMania 34
21 Royal Rumble 1995
22 The Bash 2009

Kinda like capital punishment but not as terrible. - htoutlaws2012

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

23 Greatest Royal Rumble 2018

The worst crowd and PPV of 2018

24 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

25 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

26 Fastlane 2018
27 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

Somewhat forgettable PPV - htoutlaws2012

28 No Mercy 2017
29 No Way Out 2007

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

30 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

31 Royal Rumble 2013

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

32 Royal Rumble 2006

Come on Rey Mysterio one this royal rumble

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

33 Money in the Bank 2017
34 Fatal 4-Way (2010)

Very forgettable show - htoutlaws2012

35 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.

36 Insurrextion 2002

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

Garbage! Not one good match on the card

Absolute garbage

Yea that was a pretty brutal PPV - htoutlaws2012

37 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

38 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

39 TLC 2013

Apart from the handicap match that backfired. This shows was good.

Yeah great idea having handicap matches that backfired. - htoutlaws2012

40 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

41 Over The Limit 2012

The main event was just wow...

42 Heroes of Wrestling

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

43 Fastlane 2017
44 Battleground 2017

The only good match was the opening tag match between new day and the usos

45 Wrestlemania 16

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

46 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

47 Summerslam 2003

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

48 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

49 Cyber Sunday 2007

It sucks

The only good match was Batista vs undertaker and umaga vs triple h and besides that it sucked
