Neither DISH Network or DirecTV will be carrying this year's WWE Money in the Bank PPV. DISH Network's sports page is listing TNA Slammiversary, and DirecTV has gotten rid of its sports page entirely. DirecTV is STILL airing TNA PPV events, however, and will be carrying Slammiversary this Sunday night.
Going forward, both DISH and DirecTV have said they will make the decision either to carry or not to carry WWE PPV events on a case by case basis.
