Plans For WWE Elimination Chamber & WWE’s 2017 PPV Calendar

As reported on Wednesday, WWE Elimination Chamber will be returning in 2017 from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the event will take place on 2/12 and will be a RAW brand event.

The WrestleMania season PPV for the SmackDown brand will be Fastlane on 3/5 from the BMO Harris Bank Center in Milwaukee.

There are currently 18 planned PPV dates for 2017 after WWE previously went public with 19 dates. There’s been talk of cutting back to 16 events, which would mean even more changes

Original plans had Extreme Rules and Money in the Bank being exclusive to SmackDown but it’s possible those two dates are changed due to the other schedule changes mentioned above.
