How to improve SmackDown!?

My suggestions are:

1. Have Barrett challange Sheamus and win the title from him.

2. Meanwhile ADR will form a stable with Ryan, Mahal and Riley similiar to Evolution.

3. Have Mahal challange Cesaro for the USC/EC and bring in Zack Ryder for a third angle and have triple threat matches with hardcore rules with trash cans, barbed wire, tlc, steel cage etc. Have Mahal win it in a hard fought blood match then lose it to Ryder in a ladder fatal 4 way match with Cesaro and Swagger and continue such with more such matches.

4. Bring back McIntyre with short hair and new color scheme and give him a winning streak showcasing skills every week against JTG, McGillcutty, Rex etc. then have him suddenly challange Mahal for the USC resulting in a 3 month long feud where they will exchange the title in different types of matches like hardcore rules, steel cage, no dq, tables, ladders etc. then losing it in another fatal 4 way match to Cesaro.

5. Give a short winning streak to Ryan then have him win the TTC with Riley and have epic feuds with the PTP and Rex/Hawkins. Then after losing the titles Ryan will enter in a tournament for the No.1 contender match for WHC also involving Sheamus, Randy Orton, McIntyre, ADR, Rhodes and few others surprisingly winning it by defeating Swagger, Khali, McIntyre and Sheamus on the way and will face Barrett in a ppv maybe even WM if possible.

6. Meanwhile Riley will start a feud with Randy Orton by making him lose match in the above tournament resulting in an epic 5 matches which Riley will surprisingly win 3-2 with the final match at WM which will be an Iron Man Match.

7. During this time ADR will be involved in a 3 stages of hell match with Barrett and will get a kayfabe injury and will just be leading the group till coming back and losing in the above tournament.

The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H, John Cena, Goldberg, Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Miachels, Jeff Hardy, CM Punk, Ken Shamrock, Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, Brock Lesnar, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Owen Hart, Batista, Randy Orton, Ric Flair and Sting are my all time favourites rankwise.

Re: How to improve SmackDown!?

Get more people featured during shows. Otherwise, Smackdown is already better than Raw.

Getting the title off Sheamus would help, not even because I don't like the guy (I do), but because he's not really doing anything with/for the Championship at this point.

Re: How to improve SmackDown!?

I don't see much chance of that happening.

A few smaller suggestions:

1) Bring in JBL/Striker/Regal on commentary

2) Do more multi-tag team matches, ie. Kofi-Truth v Kidd-Gabriel v PTP (add Reks/hawkins, Uso's and Puerto Ricools as you please.

3) Have a battle royal to determine who will face Cesaro next week for USC/EC, have Cesaro attack the winner (Probably Ryder/Sin Cara/Brodus) any midcard face will do.

Re: How to improve SmackDown!?

Either go the extra mile to keep Raw & Smackdown as separate viable rosters or just end the brand extension altogether and let Smackdown just be a full fledged continuation of Raw like it was when it was first created.

Re: How to improve SmackDown!?

Besides cancelling it?

-Enforce the brand split.

-New commentary team, bring in JBL as CC

-Bring back the crusierweight belt, bring in some workers to compete for it and current guys who fit that criteria(Tyson Kidd, Gabriel, Sin Cara, etc.)

-Stop forcing Sheamus down everyone's throats; try to make him vulnerable a few times

-Put Ryback into a fued against an established wrestler. No Mahals, Hawkins or Reks. No jobbers. Put him against a name.

-As much as I hated the gimmick in 2006, have Booker T abuse his power and in time turn into King Bookah. Sandow can be his top henchman along with one or two other guys

-Show needs starpower. Taker has to appear

-Bring back the fist stage and get rid of that Green Day crap. This isn't Sesame Street.

Re: How to improve SmackDown!?

You mean how to improve both brand. Raw and Smackdown are both equally bad right now. Their prouct is all over the place and WWE has forgotten how to build a proper PPV card this year. There are a lot of things that WWE needs to improve on.

New Main Eventers: They need new faces in the main event fast. Is not that they don't have the talent is the fact that the writing team and Vince are revolving shows around Cena and past stars. Vince prefers to pay The Rock and Brock Lesnar five million dollars instead of building someone like Wade Barrett or Alex Riley and give them the World Heavyweight Championship or WWE Championship. Not to mention in Vince's eyes the only guy worthy in his company of holding the WWE Championship is John Cena.

Burying Talent That Gets Over: This is one of the most stupid traditions that Vince McMahon and the WWE have. This has been a habit for quite some time now. Remember when Christian was mega over in 2005? Vince and WWE send him to Smackdown to try to cool off his momentum and failed. Christian eventually left the company until he returned eventually. Christian had gotten over with his creativity and talent. Zack Ryder is another example. He was mega over in 2011 and could have been huge. I'm going to clarify that Ryder is not worthy of holding the WWE Championship. However, he could have been the most over mid-carder in the company and be extremely marketable for WWE. Now the lastest example is Daniel Bryan. Vince and WWE have been trying to bury him for months and have failed every step of the way. He losses constantly on Raw, Smackdown and PPVs and they even went as far as to take away his YES chants and give them to AJ. Pathetic!

No Mid-card: Is not that they don't have the talent. Is the fact that WWE just doesn't care to build a mid-card. These writers are basically getting paid to write a main event and throw away mid-card matches for the show. Guys like Drew McIntyre, Justin Gabriel & Alex Riley should be in better positions that they are now. This is another example of how old and senile Vince is becoming. He grew up in a era when he saw that a good mid-card complements a solid main event. Back in the Attitude Era (and I hate doing AE comparisons), I could sit and watch the entire Raw broadcast without switching channels and that was because WWE had a solid mid-card to entertain us when the Austin/Vince madness wasn't happening. We had great characters like Goldust, Godfather, D-Lo Brown, APA, etc. and they put up solid matches as well. Mid-card can be marketable too but I'm willing to bet Vince doesn't even know how many guys he had on the roster besides Cena.

Creative/Writing Team: These guys are basically collecting free paychecks. Logic and creativity is at its worst in WWE this year. For example, Big Show gets DQ'ed because he throw Cena out of the ring or how about the awful finishes we have seen at PPVs this year. The CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan match finish, the clusterfuck at No Way Out between Cena and Big Show and the recent Sheamus vs. Del Rio finish. On top of that their shows are awful and all PPVs have had awful build this year.

Smackdown Main Eventers on Raw: This is another thing that pisses me off. Randy Orton and Sheamus are on Raw every week taking a spot that a young guy could have to get over. I don't even understand what's the point of the brand split these days if Smackdown guys are always on Raw.
