May 27, 2016 - by Steve Gerweck

On the latest edition of the Steve Austin Show (via ), Austin spoke about Smackdown move to Tuesday night and the brand extension. Here are the highlights…

On Smackdown: “The SmackDown roster can’t be the minor leagues. It can’t be the NXT of the big leagues.” Austin said, “SmackDown could become the hotter show just because it takes less time to watch it, and, man, you know everybody has attention deficit these days, so I don’t know. To me, it could have the makings of making SmackDown the hotter, more popular show.”

On The World Champion: “I absolutely think that the world champion ought to travel back and forth [between RAW and SmackDown].” Austin added, “if the champion is on RAW, Reigns, who has the championship, goes to SmackDown, to me, that in and of itself creates something that I want to see.”
