Brand Warfare: A Risky Angle That Might Work

Steven KingContributor IApril 5, 2010

With everyone giving their opinion on what could make the WWE better, I thought of something that could also help.

Good old fashioned Brand Warfare.

Now, I'm not saying this is the best idea I've heard of or come up with, but (in my own opinion) if done right, this could really have an impact. I know most of you were thinking once you read the headline that something like this is either a bad idea or a very risky one.

But when you think about it, this could be good. Think about this: Things start by having a feud between two opposing teams going after the UTTT (ShowMiz vs. Hart Dynasty anyone?) and it gets ugly from there. The Raw or Smackdown team starts going onto the other show and talking smack, which angers the rest of, or a small portion, of the brand.

They shouldn't just jump to using the Main Eventers in this, but maybe Mr. McMahon gets involved and backs the brand he likes the most. (Maybe SmackDown because of the Superstars who have feuded with Vince that are on Raw.) And this leads to a Tag Team match like Survivor Series. (Not at Survivor Series, but just the set up.) Or a Champion vs Champion match.

Now, maybe I'm not the best writer in the world, so the set up for it might not sound very good, but I like the idea. Although I have to admit there are alot of better and less risky angles they could work. But last weeks SmackDown got me thinking about it. They could also have NXT start invading Raw and SmackDown to take out their top stars.

That is also a very risky angle, especially with guys who have some crappy, or very amature mic skills.

Let me know what you think.
