It's always amazed me, how guys like HHH, Batista and so on always jumped brands, but the Deadman has never moved from SmackDown?

Is it due to personal reasons, business, does the WWE want a veteran on SmackDown at all times because Shawn Michaels was always on RAW, I've always been curious as to why WWE has stuck with Taker on SmackDown for so long considering most other wrestlers move from brand to brand frequently.

It's so he can do his dissapearing acts easier on a recorded show, also probably so Smackdown gets higher ratings in the WrestleMania lead up when he annually comes alive again

Because SD needs a constant and Taker is that constant.

In latter years it may have been so he can travel with his missus after he hooked up with her?

SD has a lighter schedule.

They need all the star-power they can spare on Smackdown, so keeping a legend knocking around is just good sense.

Plus they need to be able to edit his appearing and disappearing acts.

He was drafted once. Back when Flair hand picked Taker to go 2 raw. And Taker got pissed and went straight 2 vince. Don't remember the rest though.

I think that it comes down to the fact that Smackdown needs at least one top tier name to attract viewers and that Undertaker is a reliable, valuable asset. Plus, as Smackdown is a pre-recorded show rather than live, they can edit his special "magic tricks" and stuff.

Oooonly heeaaaveeen knows..

Nah, I think cause smackdown is his yard and no one, I MEAN NO ONE, not even Vince, can move him anywhere. #itsstillrealtomedammit

Ok, serious, Sd is lacking of star power. On raw, you have HHH, Cena, in the past, Batista, HBK and Orton
Sd only have, Y2J, taker, Kane.

Also, it might be possible that they doesn't wan HBK and Taker on the same show?
