Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.
Can they at least make RAW and Smackdown unique? The only difference is the name and color.
If they can afford to have new sets for PPVS every month then they could most certainly afford a permanent unique set for Smackdown. The reason they probably don't have a unique Smackdown set is because the universal HD set is easier to set up and more accessible.
They don't have new sets every month. They vary on previous sets. Well duh to your second point. It is cheaper to bring around 1 set than 2. Less sets = less trucks needed = less petrol for trucks = less truck drivers for them to pay = less road tax for trucks = less insurance for their drivers = less money for toll booths.
All of these have had large price increases, especially fuel. It all adds up.
