Have A SummerSlam 2017 In-Play Specials Idea For William Hill? Leave Them Here

Update: The comments section has now closed. Thank you for your suggestions and good luck!

Originally published on August 10th

William Hill's WWE SummerSlam 2017 match markets will be published next week. As well as having the opportunity to wager on the results of the card, customers will also be able to have bets on in-play specials that are due to be installed in the hours leading up to the pay-per-view.

For nearly a year, I've published a post in the days/weeks leading up to WWE shows where William Hill customers can leave any prop or special bet ideas they might have for the company's staff to have a look through and - if possible - add to their list of specials to go live ahead of PPVs.

If you have any ideas for the bookies, you can leave them in the comments section below. As noted, the staff will look through your suggestions and if they are able to, your bet will be published a few hours ahead of SummerSlam.

To save you some time, there are a few things that cannot be priced up. A few examples are:

- Anything that might take place on the Kick Off as these markets are for main card only
- Requesting prices on legitimate injuries occurring during the match (also includes asking for odds on blood being spilt through blading etc)
- Asking for odds on catchphrases, chants or quotes made during the broadcast
- Pyrotechnic or other production malfunctions
- Match placement on the night (ie asking for odds on a certain match being the opener)
- Male on female violence (ie asking X to punch Y)

To give you a few pointers of what can be suggested, here are a few suggestions that made their way to the website for the most recent PPV, Battleground 2017:

  • Great Khali to make an in-ring appearance
  • Baron Corbin to cash in the MITB contract and win the title
  • Natalya to put Naomi in the sharpshooter
  • Zayn to win via countout or DQ, Kingston to be pinned, All titles retained, Nakamura to win (this was a 100/1 special)
  • Nakamura to win, Orton to win the title, Corbin to cash in his briefcase (17/2)
  • Singh Brothers to make an in-ring appearance
When available, you'll be able to view William Hill's match and specials markets on the page below:
