WrestleMania – April 8th in New Orleans, Louisiana

Backlash – May 6th in Newark, New Jersey

SummerSlam – August 19th

Hell in a Cell – September 16th

For the 16 shows, they brought in $14.2 million in revenue from traditional pay-per-view and was an increase of 12.7% from the $12.6 million in revenue from 2016.
