With ECW getting old and SmackDown looking to change things, it looks like it is time to shake things up a bit, as Vince McMahon likes to say.
ECW is all but dead, The Land of the so-called Extreme has now died with Tommy Dreamer gone.
Dreamer made it feel like ECW to a certain extent even though it has not been the same since it started really, but having him there was knowing ECW because he was around.
With Dreamer now gone with all of the other originals, it is now time to change the appearance and the name to make it a show that we can get into.
Instead of calling ECW “Extreme Championship Wrestling” when there isn’t a hint of Extreme anywhere to be found.
A name change is in store along with everything else; I think it’s time to make it an official minor league show and let the up-and-comers shine into the spotlight.
SmackDown on the other hand is a great wrestling show, but there is something that makes it feel really plain. I’m not saying it’s not a good show, it is a great one, but there is that It factor that is missing that we see with Raw every week.
SmackDown needs to change things up, first we should change the captain and find a new general manger, because even though I like Teddy Long it is time for a new GM to take control of a slowly sinking ship and rejuvenate it with a dose of excitement and aw.
Next we can change the color, maybe the logo a little bit, we have seen Raw do this and it is part of what it keep us interested.
See it like this, a football team for example has there team and color but there is one thing that attracts up sometimes, a Stadium.
That stadium makes that team unique because you know who they are like for example we all know the Louisiana Superdome, because of the atmosphere and the fans.
ECW was all about Extreme and that was the fan base back in those days people did crazy things.
SmackDown to me doesn’t have to change the roster, but need’s to fix what is around them and needs to change its appearance to make that show unique.
I see a lot of exciting changes coming up for these two shows to put these two brands in their own level of excitement.
