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.

It's not a stage that has any style to it, but it's just a stage. There are far bigger problems to worry about than something you see for a combined 5 minutes tops through a 3 hour Raw.

They don't have to completely change the HD screen or what not, but geez it wouldn't hurt to add a few things to make Smackdown seem more like a different show. They could even add a carpet to the ramp if anything. The days of the Smackdown fist are definitely gone.

Well maybe if someone hadn't spent $100 million on two political campaigns when they had no fucking chance of winning...

I like it. I hated all their stages before the HD except for the old AE stage.
