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.
I think they should just fully accept that SmackDown is the lesser show and move all the top level guys to RAW officially. Move all the midcarders to SmackDown officially, but have two top guys wrestle each other on SmackDown each week. Basically make it a combination of Main Event and Superstars, but with actual storylines.
