There has been talk recently about an "off-season" for wrestling. I agree with this in full. Allow people to go work on other things (Movis, game shows) and make sure they don't get distracted from ethier wrestling or other "projects", maybe let them take some time off to rest. But some peole argue that if the WWE gets shut down for 5 months, they will lose loads of cash, and TNA and ROH cannot afford it. I agree with this also. This is not a sport. I am sorry for every hardcore ECW fan who disagrees with me, but this is a businse. Does Disney take 5 months off? What about McDonalds?

Well, after mulling it over, I think I have a solution that will be great for everyone. RAW and Smackdown are already split, right? So how about the RAW roster work 5 months, Smackdown 5 months, work both in Feburary and March (Mania time), then have a draft at Wrestlemania. Even better, you could put a rule were Superstars become free agents if they get injured, so that they don't have to wait half a year to get back to their show, even if they are ready to work again. You can still have RAW and Smackdown on every week, just have RAW guys on Smackdown and vice versa. As for TNA, they have a huge roster that you barly see (Shark Boy, anyone?) if you don't live in Hong Kong (And watch their international show) or go to house shows. Something similar can be used for them as well. ROH dosen't have as many house shows nor TV tapings as the Big Two do, so they need no off-season.

Well, thats that. Comment below if you feel the need to. And if you don't, then do. Also, what ever hapened to the greatest in the world, Hornswaggle? I haven't seen him for months now, and it is a true shame too.
