Re: WWE Booking Cena To Work SD Tapings Again
Nobody wants to go see Smackdown because there isn't anything on it that you can't see on Raw. Raw going three hours has devoted more time to recapping the major parts of Smackdown, and all major Smackdown stories are partly seen on Raw anyways. Somebody who doesn't watch Smackdown will still know all the details about the Sheamus/Big Show fued before the PPV.
At this point, in my opinion, the best thing to do is to unify the shows so instead of Raw and Smackdown it is just WWE and put stories on Smackdown that you can't see on Raw to try to give it more meaning.
