Over the Limit was a professional wrestling event produced annually by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), a Connecticut–based promotion, and broadcast live and available only through pay-per-view (PPV). The event was established in 2010, replacing Judgment Day in the May slot of WWE's pay-per-view calendar.

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.

The first Over the Limit took place in 2010 at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan seen WWE Champion John Cena defeat Batista in a "I Quit" match to retain the title.

The second Over the Limit took place in 2011 at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington seen WWE Champion John Cena defeat The Miz in a "I Quit" match to retain the title.

In the third Over the Limit took place in 2012 at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina seen WWE Champion CM Punk defeat Daniel Bryan for the title.
