If WWE decided to end the brand split and trim the fat to a much smaller competitive level. Inc returning to only the traditional belts - WWE, Intercontinental, European, Tag Team, Women's and Womens Tag.

Who would be on your Roster?

Pick 10 people for each division. Taking the total to 80 for the main roster.

You can promote guys from NXT or demote them if you wish.

Choosing only 15 women is honestly the hardest part about this. There is so much women talent and so much expendable men's talent.

Mine would be extremely similar to this, but I'd throw Bray and Elias in the Main Event. Elias would be booked FAR differently than he is currently.

First thing I do is clean house with the career indy guys who are all workrate and no personality. They are either gone or become enhancement talent to put over actual stars.

Then I canvas the sports & entertainment world and recruits people with personalities that can talk and teach them how to wrestle. And by wrestle, I mean storytelling and psychology not just doing a bunch of moves or spots.

Damn, I really had to scrape together those women's tag teams, only two of them are actually teams right now, maybe 3 if you count Bayley/Sasha, but Sasha's in more of a manager role at the moment, isn't she?

80 talents is a lot. Wow. I wont do divisions, but I feel this would be the roster:

Men:

* Adam Cole: I would have The Undisputed Era grow to become The Balor Club and feud with AJ Styles. Not a knock on Bobby Fish, but he wouldn't be too long for my world, sadly. I'd maybe keep him around as an enforcer or a guy winning squash matches on Main Event for international syndication, but the group would be Balor, Cole, Strong & O'Reilly.

* AJ Styles: It's AJ Styles, of course you keep him. I'd program him against Balor and The UE. It would be fun to see him do some stuff with Rey Mysterio, maybe as a partner?

* Aleister Black: There's a lot to this dude. He hasn't put it all together yet, but he's a solid addition to your card. Would be interesting to see him do stuff with Matt Riddle and kind of be a strong base in your mid-card.

* Andrade: So much talent. Let Zelina get her heel act together and occasionally Andrade can team up with Angel Garza & Austin Theory. He can always have a TV match with Rey Mysterio when you're stuck for something.

* Angel Garza: So much potential. He seems to connect well to people. There's absolutely no reason to not have a guy with this much going for him around.

* Austin Theory: He's young and green, but you need young and green people around too. He'd be great tagging along with Andrade & Garza. Six-man tags against The New Day at house shows? That would be fine for that sort of thing.

* Big E. Langston: Keep The New Day together as a babyface act. They might find new life in a reunified roster. Big E could get a push down the line, but it should be as a babyface.

* Brock Lesnar: It's Brock fucking Lesnar.

* Cesaro: This guy is so good in the ring. I'd love to see him a tag team. That seems to be where Cesaro shines best. He's probably not going to be a major singles guy on his own, but there's no reason he can't have a few singles matches with Bryan, then maybe become an ally/tag partner. That would be pretty sick.

* Chad Gable: How they have done this to an Olympian is beyond me. This guy should have Mark Henry as his manager and pinning guys in seconds. Make him a star.

* Daniel Bryan: It's Daniel fucking Bryan.

* Drew Gulak: Talented guy. I'd like to see him and Timothy Thatcher have a series. It may not be the hottest program of all-time, but it could be good for a show like a Main Event just to get some good ol' fashioned wrestling out there.

* Drew McIntyre: Good look, talented dude, current champ. Why would you cut him?

* El Hijo del Fantasma: I think there's something to this gimmick, and I feel that he's different enough to Rey Mysterio to get over with US audiences in his own way.

* Fandango: He's a great looking dude and he does the WWE Network stuff. He's not going to be rehabbed as a major singles dude at this point, but he can be an enhancement guy that's kept around.

* Finn Balor: Program him against AJ Styles and there's an upper mid-card program over the IC/US Title that people might actually give a shit about.

* Jeff Hardy: People still give a shit about Jeff Hardy. There's always something you can do with him. He could always have a cup of coffee in a tag team too. AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy & Rey Mysterio forming a babyface unit to take on some heels would be pretty cool.

* Jey Uso: Great tag guy, but I wouldn't even be opposed to seeing them try singles careers for a year (not feud with each other).

* Jimmy Uso: See Jey Uso.

* Keith Lee: Just have him bulldoze people left, right and center.

* Kevin Owens: I'd honestly put Owens in a tag team with Sami Zayn. On a super-stacked roster, I think that's the most stand-out place for the guy.

* Kofi Kingston: Let him do the New Day thing. When Big E gets a singles push, it's probably time to move Kofi into a different role and make way for someone new.

* Kyle O'Reilly: He'd be great as a heel tag guy with Roddy.

* John Morrison: This guy still radiates "star." Looks amazing. A reason women might watch.

* Johnny Gargano: I'd bring him up for a tag run with Ciampa. I know Ciampa has said he doesn't want to do the main roster thing, I think getting the chance to work with Cesaro & Bryan and Owens & Zayn might change his mind. Gargano doesn't seem like he'd work as a big-time singles on the main, but in a tag? Sure.

* Matt Riddle: There's some rising star potential here. Would be cool to see him go against so many people on the current SmackDown roster. Call up Pete Dunne to be his occasional tag team partner? There's probably a bigger partner for him though. I'd like to see him as one of those guys who goes against The Balor Club/Undisputed Era. Before you get rid of Bobby Fish, have a Survivor Series Elimination Match between those heels and AJ, Rey, Jeff, Matt Riddle & John Morrison. Fucking dope.

* Montez Ford: There's some young, young potential here. I don't really see it in the Street Profits as a tag team, but as a singles dude? There's something here. Angelo Dawkins can work NXT or be an enhancement guy that no one really focuses on. Not that I dislike the dude or anything, but Montez Ford has got something.

* Oney Lorcan: I think he'd be great in some sort of technical-style program with Drew Gulak and Tim Thatcher.

* Randy Orton: It's Randy fucking Orton.

* Rey Mysterio: It's Rey fucking Mysterio.

* Ricochet: I don't think he's the star others seem to, but he's a fun act and can certainly do something.

* Roderick Strong: Heel tag team with KOR.

* Roman Reigns: Come on, it's time to get over the sour taste of the push and admit this guy is a fucking star.

* Sami Zayn: Tag team with Kevin Owens.

* Samoa Joe: I'd actually think about wrapping him up. But there a few matches left for him, and it'd be nice to see him in a tag run. Eventually I'd make him the color commentator on one of the shows. Promote Nigel McGuinness to the other. I'd probably go with an unproduced Michael Cole with Nigel on SmackDown and Mauro and Joe working together on Raw.

* Seth Rollins: I'm so fucking tired of this guy, but he's good. He needs a manager. I wouldn't mind seeing him have a match with Roman Reigns and then becoming the sidekick.

* Shinsuke Nakamura: This guy is still excellent, no matter what anyone says. He's fucking ace. There's definitely a spot for him somewhere. I'm still waiting for Nakamura vs. Bryan damn it.

* Tommaso Ciampa: See Johnny Gargano. He doesn't need to work house shows. Johnny can do singles matches with a tag guy he is feuding with there and Ciampa can just work TVs and PPVs.

* Timothy Thatcher: Heard a lot about this guy and think he would be really good going against your Drew Gulak type guys.

* Velveteen Dream: If his legal issues turn out to be nothing. There's something to this guy, but he does need to bring it out. That program with Aleister Black was almost three years ago. Run it again. Black wins the match just like before and he and Black end up forming a team, but as they are about to get something big done (the Dusty Tag Classic on the main roster), Dream turns on Black and things get ramped up.

* Xavier Woods: Let him be in The New Day. When that ends, he can either work singles or be a manager again. Wouldn't mind him getting a complete makeover or even being used in NXT to try and amp it up.

Women:
* Asuka: She's very talented and they seem to have found a role that works for her.

* Bayley: I went back and forth on Bayley, but I feel bad for her, so I've given her a job. She'd basically be enhancement, but at least she's working.

* Bianca Belair: A lot of potential. They can't all be women that are super-ready right now.

* Charlotte Flair: Come on. Like with Roman Reigns, it's just time to admit she's a star.

* Io Shirai: I think she'd be an awesome rival for Asuka.

* Kacy Catanzaro: Some more raw potential. Cute as a button and can do amazing things. She should at least be working house shows to bring her along.

* Kairi Sane: She's another good looking woman with talent. Can you just imagine a round robin program between her, Asuka and Io?

* Natalya: This is the veteran you put in the ring with Kacy and Bianca at house shows and eventually on TV.

* Rhea Ripley: There's some real star power here. They've set her beating Charlotte up very nicely.

* Santana Garrett: She's got that Bayley-type vibe to her, so she can do that thing.

* Sasha Banks: I went back and forth on her too. She's way overrated. But she does have that Snoop connection and you can always have her beaten to mean something.

* Scarlett: Not as a wrestler, but as a personality, sure.

* Shayna Baszler: This a good act. She carries herself well. They've invested a bit in her.

* Toni Storm: Some more star potential. She's probably more ready than the other girls in that slot.

* Zelina Vega: Not as a wrestler, but as a personality, sure.
