Starting in 2009, WWE began rebranding several of their annual PPV events. One of the new events they created in 2010 was Over the Limit. This was the only new PPV they put on the calendar during this time frame that did not have a specialized theme (ex: TLC, Fatal 4-Way, Money in the Bank, and Hell in a Cell).
