Okay so I've been wishing for a while that WWE would move either Cena or Orton to Smackdown!. They're seriously lacking star power over there and having either Cena or Orton would be a big plus. Now seeing as Cena's the face of the company and RAW is WWE's flagship show, it's unlikely that if it happened Cena would be the one moved.

But Orton would be a great move to Smackdown!. Face or heel, Orton would fit perfectly and could put a guy or two over.

I mostly say this because Smackdown! is too young. I like it at times, but it's missing that veteran influence. Kane is iffy and Taker is just, well, Taker. He'll be hurt in 6 months after a light schedule anyway. That leaves you with Rey, Edge, and Show.

I just think WWE should divide it's stars evenly. The top faces of the company should not saturate one brand. Split Cena and Orton up like they did with Austin and Rocky. It'll make for a much better Smackdown! and may improve ratings.

Cena will NEVER move to SmackDown. And Orton needs to move to SD just because RAW feels like a clusterfuck of main eventers

They will never send Cena back to Smackdown. Also Smackdown's fine as it is right now, all they need is John Morrison as a face on Smackdown and then they're fine

Cue typical "but Smackdown! is the wrestling show and Cena/Orton can't wrestle."


To be honest, I like Smackdown! as is, it gives younger stars the chance to test the waters without being held down.

Do you think ADR would be in the main event if Orton was on Smackdown? Nope.

I do, actually. WWE needs a Mysterio replacement to connect with the Hispanic community. Hence, ADR. That's not to say he isn't a good performer. Just happens to be the case.

Yeah, let's move Orton to SD ann Ted DiBiase while we're at it. Then we would have Orton, DiBiase and McIntyre on one show. I don't think we could handle that much charisma.

Orton has charisma, however, his gimmick requires him to have anything but charisma. Before his Viper days he was pretty entertaining.

End the damn roster split and make a unique entrance area like the OG smackdown set. or even the 2nd one. Make SD the most equal to Raw as possible not designating it as there B show. The WWE needs to get rid of these deadweights like the Big Show, Kozlov the always injured mysterio Great Khali, Mark Henry, William Regal Yoshi Tatsu DHS Tyson. have a relatively small roster so that everyone can get there ring time and mic time and we dont have to worry about haveing the Big Show who cant even get over as Santa Clause come out and act like jolly giant.

I seriously thought this past Draft Randy Orton would be "drafted" back to
Smackdown because he's foughten everybody like Cena, I don't know how he still
fits on the show, I seriously think he would want to be that person who wants
to be a World Champion and if he did that would be best to go to Smackdown
and have different title defenses, I seriously think he would fit well on the
show.

But I doubt they will send Cena over because he's the top draw and all.

I Agree, but Tyson Kidd&DH Smith have good relations with WWE since Bret Hart is
there Uncle and that won't happen for years, so face the fact the Hart Dynasty is
sticken around for a long time because Bret Hart is there Uncle and he's in good with
WWE again, so I don't think that will happen and there still young and just being treated
as jobbers right now but Bret will make sure they have there place in WWE.

I say the show needs a little lift. I think that Orton would be a great addition to the roster, now that Edge, Mysterio, and Undertaker are working limited dates or retiring in the future. I feel the show will need a true main event level face the fans can get behind.

Cena and Orton belongs to A show...

yes somebody like John Morrison should move to Smackdown.
Don't you understand that there should not be a labeled a show? That is just plain stupid, plus smackdown is so much on the rise raw is going to look like a b squad.

90 percent of what you said was stupid. Getting rid of half the superstars you named would be the worst idea possible.

One of them needs to go and it isn't John Cena. Orton on SD is the perfect way to split them up and keep a potential feud down the line fresh while giving each show a cornerstone. When Taker leaves SD is most definitely going to need a new face. Come to think of it, SD is going to be in a bit of trouble when Taker, Edge, Rey, Kane and Show all retire pretty soon. While having new faces is great, having ALL new faces isn't. Same can be said for Raw I guess.

Cena is Smackdown bound in 2011. Trust me. You only become MASSIVE once you go to Raw, and WWE need to create more stars on the flagship so they have more stars roster wide. Trust me, draft 2011 will look something like this:

To Raw: Rey Mysterio, Undertaker, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, Kane


To Smackdown: John Cena, Triple H (becoming the new GM, with Vickie following Ziggler to Raw), CM Punk, The Miz, Alex Riley.


You heard it here first.
