As of late i have noticed a change in the brands mainly smackdown and raw and i thought i woulld share my opinion with the bleacherreport community.
In mid september batista was moved to smackdown. many thought this would be the end of cm punk's push.
But he decided to go for the tag team gold with a returning rey mysterio. People gave the benifit of the doubt when it came to him being the world champion or even in the title picture.
But the "animal" Batista wasn't successful in taking the titles away from jerishow. Now he is basically set up for a world title shot for no apparent reason and i wouldn't doubt that mysterio doesn't try to get in the title hunt as well.
CM Punk lost the world title to the Undertaker at Hell in a Cell. i can understand the move to give taker one more title run, but the world title and the wwe title flip flop around way too much.
Now we have the potential return of John Cena to smackdown, if he loses to Randy Orton at bragging rights then that will shove the mid card wrestlers like John Morrison and Dolph Ziggler down even more.
With Cena on Smackdown that would give Smackdown alot of star power. With Undertaker Batista Edge Cena Jericho Mysterio and CM Punk on smackdown. that doesn't give anybody room too grow and Punk will probably even get pushed down.
Smackdown would basically become Raw. now on the other side of the spectrum. this would greatly improve raw. With out Super Cena and Batista on the show, it could really be the chance the raw superstars have been waiting for.
Stars such as MVP, Jack Swagger, and Kofi Kingston could finally get their push. so Raw would become Smackdown, a place for up and comers.
The ratings might drop but it would be good for the entire WWE in the long run. Thanx for reading and please tell me what you think.
