It seems like Smackdown is testing grounds for WWE.

They take a superstar , put him in smackdown, make him champion , see if he gets over with the crowd, If he does move him to raw.

One name = John cena.

Raw is the main show. Smackdown is the B show. There's no other explanation for it. It's exactly what should be done.

More room for fuck ups. And Booker T's enthusiasm is a good counter to Cole verbally burying people, unlike on Raw where you have Lawler lazily putting a good word or two in. I think Booker really does a good job of putting people over with his commentary.

Because its not live and is the "B" show.
This. Exactly. But now there seems to be a few tiers of Superstars.

Tier 1 is those shown weekly on Raw (Cena, Awesome Truth, Air Boom, CM Punk, Del Rio etc.)
Tier 2 is those on Smackdown shown on the Raw SuperShows (Orton, Sheamus, Christian etc.)
Tier 3 is those usually reserved for Smackdown (Barrett, Bryan, Sin Cara, Rhodes etc.)
Tier 4 is those shown on Superstars/NXT and not on Raw weekly (McIntyre, Ryan, JTG etc.)
Tier 5 is those shown on Superstars/NXT and not on Smackdown weekly (Tatsu, Baretta, Kidd, Slater etc.)

Tier 6 is Tyler Reks. His employed, yet invisibile ass is in a group all by itself.

Booker doesnt even know the names of the moves.

Raw is where the biggest stars in the business go to flourish. SmackDown is where popular acts are usually built into the top guys and generally just where young talents are introduced & developed.
