Since 2002, the WWE has operated RAW and Smackdown as two separate brands. Over time, the brands have developed their own championships and have had them switched from brand to brand through drafts and Money in the Bank cash-ins.
With the RAW Supershow, it is slowly engulfing Smackdown talent onto RAW and will eventually swallow the show whole. Next thing you know, here we are, back before the 2001 WCW/ECW invasion.
That being said, the WWE and World Titles would be one, the Intercontinental and US Championships would become one and the tag-team and Divas titles are already one title.
With the mound of talent that currently occupies the WWE rosters, should all of them be chasing just those titles?
There are many main-event level superstars and to have them fighting over one WWE title can mean many of them will get lost in the shuffle.
Most guys will have to pair off and go after the tag-team titles and if too many guys do that, there's another log jam in a WWE division—not that there are any complaints; the WWE can use the talent in their tag-team division.
The fact remains, less gold means less talent getting immediate opportunities to claim said gold, meaning more talent will become frustrated that their contributions are being overlooked and will eventually leave.
The title chases will get most of the coverage and to tie in with the last slide, all the jobbers and lesser known guys will become irrelevant on WWE programming.
There aren't too many specific reasons why the Supershow is a bad sign, but the reasons that exist are big enough to outweigh the positives, on a long-term scale at least.
