    I don’t enjoy watching these two guys. I don’t think they know what they are talking about.

        They should only move a handful of top stars, maybe 3 male and 2 females per brand, plus some midcard guys and one, MAYBE two NXT call-ups. NXT should not be treated as a big deal. Send a few guys back to NXT as well, who aren't cutting it on the main roster.

                            No interest in Garganos storyline arcs?? They're so good and he's such a good babyface. Most organically over babyface in WWE other than new day & becky

                                  WHAT THE POINT OF HAVING A DRAFT IF PEOPLE CAN GO ON TO ANY SHOW THEY FEEL LIKE. i remember the time i use to invest in the show like SMACK DOWN and was over protective to the point i whole not watch RAW and had issues If the show was being taken advantage of and bullied. I was a true BLUE BLOOD boy of SMACK DOWN.. I LOST MY WILL TO EVEN KEEP UP. HOW CAN I VALUE A STAR IF THEY LOOS ALL THE TIME. PLEASE TALK ABOUT: 1) WHY THE SHOWS DON'T HAVE THERE OWN IDENTITY ANYMORE? ARE THEY SO LAZY TO EVEN BUILD THERE OWN STAGE.. 2) WHY ARE ALL THE BELTS LOOK THE SAME, AGAIN NO IDENTITY NO EFFORT.. 3) I LIVE IN SOUTH AFRICA WE DON'T GET THE 7 OR 6 HOURS SHOWS EVERYONE IN THE WORLD GET TO SEE. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO LIKE A SUPERSTAR THAT IS NOT POPULAR AND SEE THEM ONCE A MONTH FOR THEM TO END UP LOOSING EVERY TIME YOU SEE THEM..

                                    have an actual DRAFT! Let Heyman and Bischoff get out there and actually pick people over both Raw and Smackdown. You could start a lot of storylines that way

                                      I liked the Mia Yim match. The promo Mia did beforehand talking about how she grew up and ended it with "I am the hell AND the high water" was just amazing

                                          The only problem with the two brands having distinctive rosters is there is only so many match combos you can do till it gets boring on tv and pay per views with the same matches.

                                            Ryan Beverley  3 months back

                                            I think that we need brand separate PPV shows. There are not enough big names right now, and that is because every raw or SD or PPV features the same 20 people.

                                            Maybe have a couple NXT matches on a Raw PPV or as the pre show, since they are both on USA. Otherwise only do cross promotion stuff at the big 4

                                              @Nicholas Bryant Exactly. And if they are split between 2 brands, then each brand would have a PPV every other month. Gives them 6-8 weeks to set up stories and whatnot

                                            • Nicholas Bryant
                                              Nicholas Bryant  3 months back

                                              I don't mind brand specific PPVs if they're spaced out like the Take Overs

                                            Mark B  3 months back

                                            I'm sorry but the main thing I took away from this is that every time I listen to the guys from WhatCulture talk about Daniel Bryan, I get the feeling of being gaslighted into believing we're seeing different people on our TV screens

                                                    Murphy, Alexander, Ali, Black, Sullivan, Andrade. All these guys need to be pushed as top stars. Put them over the likes of Sheamus, Orton, Cena, Mahal, Hardy.

                                                    Creatively develop a new era of extreme competitiveness like the ruthless aggression era.

                                                      I want the raw roster to include Aj Styles Daniel Bryan Samoa Joe Drew McIntyre Ali Almas Gable guys like that

                                                          What you do is. Get titles that actually fully represent a brand, WHC title revival or a re-establishment of an former WWE title. The tag titles and women's title need to follow suit. It is dull that they are the same seriously. There definitely should be two distinctive brands.

                                                            I don't think Vince has it in him to see SmackDown as a priority. He's always seen it as the b show. And that's interesting now because the b show is on the a network. FOX is way bigger than USA, and they paid a ton of money for SmackDown. FOX isn't going to let SmackDown be the b show anymore. I see a battle happening. You're gonna have Vince wanting RAW to be the main priority because it was the show that was there first, but you're gonna have FOX wanting SmackDown to be the main priority. And how is USA gonna respond if SmackDown becomes the new a show? I'm hoping for an implosion.

                                                                To answer Sedgwick’s question I was watching an old Raw from the attitude era and Vince had literally mentioned the phrase World Wrestling Entertainment on like a 97’ episode of Raw. I believe it was the March 10th 1997 show with the ECW debut. Could be wrong on the episode but when I heard Vince say that I was shocked and impressed that he had the vision then, to see where the industry in his mind would go.

                                                                  • Little sock over me ghostly tail
