maybe give them some of the 20 main eventers that Raw took? The problem isn't what to do with the wrestlers they DO have...its about who Raw won't let them have. When Jericho comes back i think he should go to SD
Get rid of Smackdown all together. RAW made it for six years without a second show for all the decent wrestlers left out. They had more matches on RAW from 1993-1999 and there were more storylines and most of the guys were involved in some way. Shotgun Saturday Night was strictly for the guys trying to make it. Undertaker and Shawn Michaels were never on it.
First, I would take Undertaker and Ric Flair off of SmackDown and put them on RAW.
Second, I would use SmackDown to build new stars like it has done. John Cena, Bobby Lashley, Mr. Kennedy and right now MVP have all become stars because of SmackDown. That's what the show should be used for. All of the established stars should be on RAW.
Finally, I would get rid of ECW completely and send most of the talent there to SmackDown.
Vince McMahon abslutely blew it with ECW. I was so excited when I first heard about ECW coming back. I don't know why I actually expected Vince McMahon to let Paul Heyman write/book the shows and choose the wrestlers that he wanted.
Vince McMahon could have bought the ECW arena and taped all of the shows there in front of real ECW crowds. He should have kept RVD, Sabu and a lot of the originals AND sent other wrestlers there who fit the ECW style. Not guys like Big Show, Test and Hardcore Holly. CM Punk is fine. But ECW should have been given guys like Chavo Guerrero, Paul London, Charlie Haas, Super Crazy, etc.
I think Vince McMahon felt that if he let Paul Heyman have control over ECW and did things his way that ECW could become the most popular WWE brand especially with the WWE behind it and I don't think McMahon wanted that.
But anyways back to SmackDown... yeah I really do think that show should be used just to build new stars. I don't mind a couple of big names there like Edge and Batista. But guys like Undertaker and Flair should be on RAW. SmackDown should be used for guys like MVP, CM Punk, Deuce & Domino, etc. to become established wrestlers.
