Bragging Rights is a professional wrestling event produced annually by World Wrestling Entertainment, a Connecticut–based promotion, and broadcast live and available only through pay-per-view (PPV). The event was established in 2009, replacing Cyber Sunday in the late October slot of WWE's pay-per-view calendar.
The concept of the show was based around a series of interpromotional matches for "bragging rights" between wrestlers from the Raw and SmackDown brands, with a Bragging Rights trophy awarded to the show that won the most matches out of the series.
Since its origin, the event has been held only in indoor arenas in the United States. Championship bouts are scheduled on every card, with the lower-tier titles featured on the undercard and the top-tier featured on the main card. Under the Brand Extension, WWE assigns its performers to either Raw or SmackDown, which cause matches to be set up between wrestlers on the same show.
In 2011, Bragging Rights was replaced by a returning WWE Vengeance as the October scheduled event.
