Pro Wrestling Since 1997


More Raw and Smackdown talent crossovers

It looks like the brand split will be eased off for the next few months as Superstars from both RAW and Smackdown will be doing cross-overs more often as WWE tries to gain back some of the audience it lost. Putting A-list names on both shows will help both RAW and Smackdown although it remains to be
seen how the mid-carders will be used from this point onward. WWE split RAW and Smackdown in March 2002 following WrestleMania 18 with Smackdown getting Superstars such as The Rock, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit and Hulk Hogan and RAW getting The Undertaker, nWo, Kane and Rob Van Dam. Seven more drafts were held ever since with the last one in April of this year with Superstars being shuffled around.

    they need to just get rid of the brand split already and form the World title

    I don’t mind the brand splits. Edge isn’t a mid-carder but I feel he was lost on RAW and didn’t have a place with Cena and Orton over there. Back on SD, he is top dog again. I do, however, like the occassional switch over. Hopefully they don’t overwork them, though.

    Get rid of it. It makes no sense at times and when it does make sense, it only lasts for only about maybe a month or four barely. The brand split was at its best when it was invented, now since time has passed its time for something new, and for God’s sake combine the damn World titles.

    well when they finally get them all unified at wrestlemania noone will pushing themselves as hard to do any good matches just the same as shelton benjamin as ytou will see as uit doesnt give the tyalent what they are paid to do either its the samje as your own job shuffluing everyuoine else but yourself and not givinmg you any time how would you feel on that. when you have all that tension on things it brings the morale down and noone will give rats ass on talent not wanting to give all they want cause they know they aint getting any titlesw or any other tv tiome. they might as well fire them, then save the bs and money long the way. who wouold want to be in that kinda crap?might as well be african american male in the wwe then huh?
