Default WWE: Layeth The Smacketh Down!

Note: Been bored and unemployed the last month or so. Didn't get into college this semester and i've needed something to kill time so I started working on this. Hopefully I manage to get a job soon and if I do, I might not be able to update this as much, but for now I'm in it. Figure holding myself to one show should give me the motivation I need to not get overwhelmed.

June 25th: In the Spring of 2014, WWE began to truly realize that they had been coasting. Despite the live audiences being active and full, television ratings were down and episode feedback was extremely unimpressive. The decision was made to renew the brand split, but with separate creative teams, production crews and separate PPVs. The idea is that each brand will use this opportunity to one up one another and create competition within the company. With the WWE Network, there is no need to worry about the possible poor buyrates when thiss gets rolling. Both shows will be presented on the USA Network, Raw will remain on Monday and Smackdown will be moving over to Thursday nights. Both brands are going to be considered their own brand with little involvement from the other, however still sharing the big four PPVs. Stephanie McMahon will have control of the Smackdown brand, while Triple H will have control of Raw.

To level off each brand, the WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship were split again, with the World Heavyweight Championship being vacated and put on Smackdown, while Raw’s first overall pick, Daniel Bryan will hold onto the WWE Championship. Smackdown also gets the Intercontinental Champion, Christian and Tag Team Champions, Cody Rhodes & Goldust, along with WWE Divas Champion, Paige. The decision officially goes into effect after the brand split draft the night after Payback, the final PPV of it’s name. To stop themselves from handcuffing matches to certain gimmicks, PPV names will go back to non-themed PPV names. Also, CM Punk made his return at Wrestlemania XXX, saving Daniel Bryan from a 3 on 1 Evolution beatdown that took Triple H out of the equation and allowed Bryan to get the win. On Raw we witnessed the first ten picks for each side before the supplemental draft determined the rest. To resolve the part timer issue, Raw was given Brock Lesnar and Smackdown gets Undertaker.

NXT will be shared by the two shows with each brand getting three protected prospects and one protected diva that they have the rights to. Smackdown has the rights to Corey Graves, Enzo Amore, Colin Cassidy & Becky Lynch. Raw took the rights to Konnor, Viktor, Kalisto & Charlotte. Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn & Tyler Breeze have been given the rights to choose which show they want to be called up to.

Very nice roster you've got there, ESPECIALLY with Punk back. I'll be one very happy reader if you give him the world title. I've only really seen you around in the sports section, so looking forward to seeing what you can do with this. Good luck buddy.

WWE Smackdown Preview: June 26th 2014

For the first time in nearly ten years, Smackdown is live on Thursday night! With a whole new roster starring the likes of CM Punk, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and much more, we will see what happens on the first night of the new and improved blue brand. Smackdown’s General Manager and one of the principal owners of WWE, Stephanie McMahon will open the show with an announcement regarding the vacant World Heavyweight Championship and what we can expect from the Smackdown brand.

Already announced is a six man tag team match, featuring The Wyatt Family against Cody Rhodes, Goldust and The Miz. The Miz has a score to settle with Bray Wyatt after last week when his return from filming The Marine 4 was interrupted by vicious beatdown from The Wyatts. Luke Harper & Erick Rowan are also the current #1 contenders for Cody Rhodes & Goldust’s tag team championships as seen at Payback when they defeated The Usos.

See all of this and more, LIVE on Thursday evening on the USA Network for WWE Smackdown!

Dude I've not read a BTB in years but I was actually in the same position and considering starting one myself. I'm looking for a job in Boston now and just have so much free time (I'm not just taking anything i've saved up a bit so waiting for the right job to come.)

Anyways I'll definitely give this a read it might inspire me to finally bite the bullet (BTB) (no? lol) and get back on the train.

Loving what you've done with Smackdown and although I'm slightly disappointed there's no RAW I feel this is definitely more realistic for you and the revamp will make it fresh. I know you are awesome at this because I've seen it. Albeit 6 years ago but I have seen it.

Can't wait to see what's to come.
