Well, I enjoyed RAW last night. Even though some people don't like the whole general manager for a day gimmick, I think it would be refreshing. Today, we had Batista, which was fun to see him as a GM.
Next week we have The Million Dollar Man. It will be fun if he comes back as a face or as a heel. Even better if he gives his son, a shot at the WWE title against Randy Orton that night.
But what really got my attention were the Superstar trades. I have to be honest, when Vince said that there were going to be trades, I hated the idea. Mostly because I simply did not want them to mess up with the roster on Smackdown.
It has been just so awesome the last few months that taking talent from Smackdown would be a crime. Oh how wrong I was.
Lets start with RAW, They got Gail Kim, Alicia Fox, Jack Swagger, Evan Bourne, and Mark Henry. Now the two girls, well we all know how the women's division is run. So nothing I can say about that.
But with Jack Swagger trying to sneak into Legacy, Evan Bourne now in the big leagues and Mark Henry seems to be turning face, RAW got the help it needed.
Just think about it, who would Miz or MVP feud with if they are not really being pushed into the main event of the card? These additions will bring a lot to the table to RAW.
ECW got the Bella Twins (they simply dont know what to do with them) William Regal, Goldust and Shelton Benjamin. Now the girls, well, there is no women's division on ECW so they will be only arm candy to someone.
William Regal is a veteran that can help the younger talent. Goldust, well, I don't care for him much. Shelton, this guy will be fighting for the ECW title the moment he gets there.
I believe they took too much talent from this brand, but that can only mean they will bring in some new kids from development and this can be good.
Now Smackdown, WOW, that is all I can say. The show was Fantastic. It had the fantastic 6 in the upper card with Hardy, Mysterio, Edge, Jericho, CM Punk, and John Morrison. Now we have a VERY strong midcard with Finlay and Matt Hardy.
However, The Hart Dynasty going to Smackdown is a grand slam. These guys can be fantastic, and Natalya can fight for the women's title again. If we add the return of the Undertaker soon, this show got even better.
The draft movements were perfectly done, RAW got some fantastic talent that they needed, ECW will probably push some young stars and Smackdown got better than before. I can finally look forward for a RAW show and this will make Smackdown a CAN'T MISS SHOW.
