The year 2017 for WWE has already seen several major pay-per-views take place. These have included the "2017 Royal Rumble" back in January which "The Viper" Randy Orton won, and then the big "WrestleMania 33" event held in Orlando, Florida. During that event, Brock Lesnar captured the WWE Universal Championship from Goldberg and Randy Orton defeated Bray Wyatt for the WWE Championship. Now fans are anxiously awaiting "SummerSlam 2017" and the remaining batch of events that will close out the year. Here's the latest on what's to come for the PPV schedule for the "Raw" and "SmackDown Live" brands.

'SummerSlam 2017' leads August

As fans know, the WWE "SummerSlam" PPV next Sunday will feature both brands having matches at the event. The majority of the WWE championships will be on the line including Brock Lesnar defending his Universal title in a Fatal 4-Way against Roman Reigns, Braun Strowmn, and Samoa Joe. Also, Jinder Mahal puts the WWE Championship on the line against Shinsuke Nakamura. Other matches featured will be Natalya vs.

Naomi for the WWE "SmackDown" Women's title, and Akira Tozawa vs. Neville for the Cruiserweight title. The WWE "SummerSlam" PPV will be the only pay-per-view during the month August.

Following up the big summer event will be a "Raw" exclusive PPV when "No Mercy 2017" arrives on Sunday, September 24th. The event takes place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It's hard to say what matches will take place here, but it seems that John Cena, who is a free agent, will be a part of the event. Could he be in a high-profile match for a championship or an exciting new feud? Fans are anxious to see what's next for Cena.

Other PPVs on schedule

On Sunday, October 8th, 2017 will be the "SmackDown Live" PPV "Hell in a Cell 2017." This event arrives from the brand new arena in Detroit, Michigan called Little Caesars Arena. Also in October, "Raw" brings the "TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs" to Minnesota's Target Center. The event is scheduled for Sunday, October 22nd, and with the Hardy Boyz now on "Raw", it could give them a great matchup on the card.

The final event listed for the year so far is November 19th, 2017 with the dual-brand pay-per-view, "Survivor Series 2017." The event will be held at Houston's Toyota Center. Last year's PPV saw the brands each send different teams for traditional "Survivor Series" elimination matches. There were men's and women's versions of the matches. Will the same scenario happen again this year, or something completely different?

There's likely to be a few more events set up for December as nothing is currently shown on the schedule. However, there has been some talk of a "Taboo Tuesday" event, but it could take place in the "SmackDown Live" slot on USA network rather than on the WWE Network. In addition, December is usually when the big "Tribute to the Troops" special airs that will involve both brands.

Which WWE pay-per-view do you think will be the best for the remainder of 2017?
