I feel every year, where waiting to see which NXT wrestlers will get call up on the raw and smackdown after mania. It’s always a big deal for the first week and then they get forgotten very quickly mostly because they can’t get over in front of a normal crowd.
So i’m thinking with the fact that they already did so many call up’s before mania and the fact that the superstar shake up is the following week this year, why not just forget about doing call ups this year and just focus on those you already did before mania.
It’s not like where in a rush to call up guys like the undisputed era and velveteen dream which quite frankly, i think will get lost in the shuffle anyway and in the case of dream, i feel he would join no way jose on the WWE main event rosters in no time.
So you already have a bloated roster on raw and smackdown and did a tone of call ups already, maybe instead of adding more peoples to the main roster after mania, maybe use that time to make the superstar shake up feel special for once. Maybe by announcing that on that show we will found out where the current crop of call up will end up. Or use this time to promote to shit out of the shake up.
As far as the shake up itself, i would love to see them go back to a draft lottery type of scenario where it’s completely random and also just bring back the GM already. The whole mcmahon family is running the show isn’t working so you could use the RAw and smackdown after mania to announce that they are stepping down and the going back to GM and making the brand split something special.
They really need a fresh start and those shows could be use for that fresh start. i think the biggest mistake they did was to put all the PPV co-branded as nothing feel special anymore.
Anyway this thread is going all over the place and i’m sorry for rambling but, their so much that is wrong with the WWE right now especially as far as the brand split is concern that i feel that you could use the first 2 weeks of tv after mania to completely overhaul the way both show are run, make them different and also maybe go back to single brand PPV at less for half of them.
