I wonder if they will bring authority figures back for each brand too? NXT has William Regal as the General Manager on that brand so it is possible SmackDown and Raw may have representatives to make Draft picks for their respective brands. Maybe Heyman and Bischoff return as GMs. This time Eric runs SD and Paul runs Raw.

Speaking of NXT, what is their involvement, if any, in this Draft?

I suppose we shall see.
Delete this post right now. There are people from WWE who lurk on these forums. They do not need to be given ideas that validate their worst impulses.

I just want the IIconics on RAW so they at least have a chance to appear more frequently on tv, even if it is on Main Event

For that to happen, one would have to become more dominant ala manda rose in the rose deville tandem.
Mandy and Sonya are as big of jobbers as the Iiconics lol

I actually agree with this move, RAW is starved as far as Main Event Heels, among other problems right now, I really hope they make NXT a part of the main roster considering the fact that WWE has so much on their roster that having a third brand is really needed to at least somewhat control it and give people TV Time, The Performance Center would be an ideal "developmental" until a talent is ready to debut on one of the brands.

Questionable credibility but...


With the strong hints that Becky is moving to SD and how they don't split couples, I guess we'll see...
I would actually be somewhat down for this, they can play on the history of the wyatt family if they do Braun/Fiend, Rollins/Fiend would be the evil man going after the beta male and weve seen that too much in Wyatt feuds

Can Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe make some picks on this show?

Pretty please? The potential hilarity could be amazing.

Nice, but all depends on whether both shows actually end up different. Rumours have always been that Fox want Smackdown to be more sport oriented and less comedy so that instantly makes me think that New Day to Raw and Lesnar to Smackdown.

With Kofi being WWE Champion, does he drop the title at HITC or Fox Debut show or does the Universal Title move to Smackdown and gets a Blue makeover or even a new title design (yes please.)

Nakamura & Revival as IC and Tag champions fit well for Smackdown but Women's champions would need to be switched, unless Becky loses to Sasha prior to the draft. If Bliss goes to Smackdown to then surely Charlotte will go to Raw leading to Andrade, Zelina and Black all moving to Raw as well. If Becky goes to Smackdown, then surely Seth moves to...

The 'relationship' concept definitely adds its own dynamic this time as adds it own domino effect that shake ups rosters quite a bit.

I think Becky and Ronda will end up on Fox and that would continue their feud once Ronda returns.

Well for me, I hope this leads to the end of quite a few things.

First and foremost, lets end Raw vs Smackdown at Survivor Series, it's stupid, pointless, makes one brand look inferior to the other, and quite frankly doesn't need to be done. Now when they had Raw vs Smackdown, Womens, and Tag Titles matches, they could have had an added stipulation where the losers brand for these respective matches would wind up on the Kickoff Show at WrestleMania. In addition to that, you could have had a winners only match at the December P.P.V., where whoever wins that match is no 30 in the Rumble.

Second, finally end this stupid wild card rule, it's been the biggest waste of time, and none storyline progression I've ever herd of. It started out I believe up to 6 per show, and then it just is 10-15 people on either show, with nothing really going on. I mean for fucks sake, the Raw and Smackdown tag champs are on the opposite roster for crying out loud.

Third , make the sets unique and different, which I've already read that they were doing, however like Triple H. did when they switched to High def camera's, make their be a storyline reason for switching the set and whatnot. Like have Lesnar defeat Kofi, then as he's celebrating Bobby Lashley spears him threw the set.

They've confirmed the Wild Card rule will be over after the draft and it's been reported both brands will be getting new stages starting next week.

As for Survivor Series, I agree, but I don't think we know officially what the plan is yet.
