The entire roster of WWE could look different over the next year.
This week, rumors were being reported of WWE pay-per-views going back to co-branded status. An email from Ticketmaster claimed the Backlash pay-per-view would feature Raw and Smackdown wrestlers. Backlash is the first pay-per-view to follow Wrestlemania 34. Reports also surfaced that all pay-per-views would be co-branded.
However, Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp reports that the locker room has not been told about co-branding being the new norm.
