Can we ditch the HD stage already.

I know WWE likes to film 20 odd shows every time they park up the van but I think the HD stage is the worst they've ever had, it just lacks character, something different is definitely. Maybe a modern take on the 98-01 Raw stage for Raw and something completely different for Smackdown.

I'm sure you all agree.

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

There's nothing wrong with the HD stage, it's just the fact that WWE doesn't do anything extra ontop of that.

If they had the HD LED version of an old stage(like the shattered glass,SD Fist set) then it'd be fine. But instead, WWE just decides to have the exact same look for every single show(minus WM) with the only difference, being the color/logo.

Even on WWE13 Create an Arena feature, you can see just how cool a modernized version of WWEs old stage designs look.

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

Yeah, I really dislike the set. I hate the curvy mini tron at the bottom. The set being used for every show kind of sucks, though I'm sure it's much easier on the crew. It just looks too bland. Adding lights and more mini-trons around the set just makes it worse and worse. Keep It Simple, Stupid.

Fck sake they only changed to it in July. No, I do not agree with you. They move on with the times. Like you should.

^They have had an HD set since 2008. Not sure if the OP is including that or just the current version.

Re: Can we ditch the HD stage already.

I think the current set is here to stay, unless we get a new one on Raw's 20th anniversary. But even then, highly unlikely seeing as how the current set was recently tweaked at Raw 1000.

Can they at least make RAW and Smackdown unique? The only difference is the name and color.

Can people not understand they are cutting costs. Just like every other business worldwide!! There would be no justification to them to have unique sets for the different shows. Same goes for PPVs. Obviously it's cool for the viewer to see different sets but they do not have any effect on viewers/ppv buys so clearly there is no need for them to spend money on them!

Can people not understand this ffs?

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.
