Paglino: WWE made the call at the beginning of the year to scrap this year’s SummerSlam AXXESS events, and despite speculation the decision was made due to ongoing budget cuts, that’s not necessarily true. The calendar of this year’s WWE events, which was released all the way back in January, never listed AXXESS, meaning it’s likely the decision was made prior to the announcement of this year’s WWE’s revenue loss.
