Re: Hardcore Division for SmackDown!

Horrible idea. Both WWF's and WCW's Hardcore divisions from the late 90s/early 00s were poor, and were not over. If they were to rekindle it today, it would be far far worse and even less people would care about it. Hardcore/brutal gimmick matches should only really feature in feuds that have good heat, or where the performers can really excite a crowd through use of said gimmickry. Hardcore divisions inevitably end up with two guys pummeling each other with weapons, and no one caring. It wouldn't work at all in modern day WWE where wrestler safety is valued (and rightly so).
