BREAKING NEWS: Brand Split Returning

http://www.wwe.com/shows/smackdown/a...9?sf26901815=1

Quote:
A SmackDown shakeup is about to completely reshape all of WWE. Beginning July 19, the second longest-running weekly episodic program in television history, SmackDown, will move from Thursday to Tuesday nights and air LIVE each and every week — for the first time ever — at 8/7 C on USA Network, the exclusive cable home to WWE’s marquee properties.

This bold move will have major ramifications for all of WWE and exemplify the New Era, as both Raw and SmackDown will each feature their own unique rosters and rivalries following an imminent Superstar draft.

"WWE's flagship programs will both leverage the incredible depth of our talent roster, distinct storylines and the unpredictable nature of live TV," WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon said. “This move will undoubtedly build more excitement and deepen engagement with our fans around th█e world.”

With so many explosive competitors emerging from WWE NXT, and top Superstars like John Cena and Seth Rollins returning from injury, WWE’s star-powered roster has never been stronger. Its historic division and the monumental revelation of SmackDown’s shift to a live format each week reflect the excitement and unpredictability of WWE’s New Era.

What awaits SmackDown on its new night, starting this July? Which live shows will claim your favorite Superstars? What will this all mean for the future of sports-entertainment? Stay tuned as WWE prepares to get shaken up like never before.

I like Smackdown going live but don't think they need another brand split. Hope they keep 1 title to.

There's so much talent again that this makes sense, just like it made sense to end it when there was a huge lack of talent depth under Big Johnny.

Just hate the whole idea of a brand split. It's not like Smackdown is going to gain anything from long term. Feel like it will hurt this great roster as well. I'd be fine with it if Smackdown became a whole separate promotion all together and had nothing to do with Raw. I'll wait and see but I'm not a big fan of splitting up this roster.

I do agree with Simple Fan, but at the same time, there's so many talented guys that never get used, or flounder, or come and go so often it's hard to care. A roster split might give them all a chance to actually get some TV time again.

The only real detriment I can think of right now, is the inevitable stigma of Smackdown being the "B show" again.

Not only will there be an NXT pick, I expect that roster is getting plunger raped in this thing.

Raw is 3 hours long. And it drags badly. Take half the crew away and you're looking at a 20 minute Darren Young match every week.

Going live should be good.

I didn't like the brand split the first time around when they had enough talent for the split. Why would I like it now when there is less top end talent? Are we going to go back to 2 world champions? Smackdown will continue to be the B show and Nxt will continue to be the developmental league, so really, what is the point?

I like the brand split returning, my only reservation about it is that instead of choosing someone actually suited to the job, either Shane or Steph will get the GM role and the other will remain on RAW.

Would be pleasantly surprised though if they could get Long or maybe Kurt "Mr." Angle or hell, it'd really be a coup (and I know this is a HUGE reach), but what if they could get Bischoff to come back snd try his hand at running WWE's "blue brand"?

Please note that nowhere does this announcement say that the brand split is returning. It very well could happen, but for now they are just saying that it is going live.

Attempting to pump some life into a tired product would be an understatement.

And 5 hours of "wrasslin", or more like 3 hours of gum flapping and 2 hours of "sports entertainment" inside 2 days is retarded, people already think raw is too long at 3 hours.

I love the dripping Irony of Zach Ryder fans being against a change that will allow him more TV time.

This is a great move. It frees up smackdown to stop being a holder program for the same 10 people and 5 angles that are run on raw, and opens up the under card.

I understand that some dont like the break as it limits certain people from working together, but there are ways around it. they can kayfabe find ways to move gys between shows if they want to start a program.

I think RAW should go back down to 2 hours, especially if they are going to have half the roster to fill it with.

A brand split is a good idea in theory, that will allow guys to get over who would otherwise never get that chance.

Worried that even with Smackdown going live, though, that it will quickly revert to being treated as the B-Brand that builds up superstars before they get traded to RAW, RAW squanders them and messes them up bad, and then ships them back to Smackdown after no one cares about them anymore.

I dont agree at all. The roster is way deeper with quality characters and workers now.

NXT is churning out talent faster t han they can handle.

Go back to 2004.

is rene Dupree and Kenzo Suzuki vs the FBI anywhere near as good and Neville/Crews vs Primo and Epico?

The talent is deeper than ever....

Ill admit the star power is lower, but thats because they have buried talent for 10 years and stayed stagnant.

This is a chance to break out again.

Without the original Brand split, John Cena would have never had a shot. He was able to rise up behind Taker, Brock, Angle, Edge, Eddie, Rey, Big Show - but had HBK, HHH, Jericho, Christian, Kane, Orton, Batisita, Goldberg all been on the same show he would have been squeezed out.

There was alot of problems with the old split, but its biggest strength was allowing a chance for more talent to get on TV.

The roster was way thinner in the middle and bottom then, and that wont be a problem now.

All champions should be on both shows. Their tag division sucks so I hope they don't break any teams up. The only good I could see from this is NXT getting raided for Smackdown. Joe, Nakamura, Aries, and Balor are all to good for NXT and could come up to Smackdown. See Ambrose and Styles as Smackdown guys as well.

The only way people will get over is important matches in good programs on television. This splits up shows so that more people will have to be featured who would normally either not work that night or have a meaningless Dark match, superstars or main event which only people watch if they forget to turn off a live stream of wwe network after watching something good.

Roster is deep. You evelvate talent so it's not the same tired matchups. In wrestling it's alot to to with how you present your talent not really about the talent of the superstar. With the right set up you can elevate mid to main. This is the right way to go.
