Re: I hope the Smackdown belt is Very similar to the current belt

Erm, no.

Totally defeats the object of making Smackdown an equal show.
You're comparing 40% of the roster to 60% of the roster, so how can you tell me the champion from the 40% is "equal" to the champion from the 60%??

Then what's the point of the brand split?

Dude... :chan
The point of the brand split is to legitimise Smackdown as a brand in its own right, boost ratings, increase the number of PPVs and therefore Network subs, increase the number of live shows per year while reducing risk of injury, and provide greater opportunities for under-utilised talent instead of having constant Raw re-matches on Smackdown with storylines that make zero progress until the next Raw because nothing happens on Smackdown right now.

I'm seriously the only person in this thread who actually gets it.

Smackdown will become a legitimate rival to Raw, however whenever you compare a 3-hour show to a 2-hour show (60% vs 40%) then the #1 guy from each show is NOT automatically equal.

If you're going to do separate brands, do it right. No similar belts. Get rid of that stupid "W" and have a "Raw" and "Smackdown" belt.
