It appears that Cena and Orton are currently the biggest draws in WWE. Would it make more sense to put one on Smackdown and the other on RAW?

It seems like RAW is so Cena and Orton centric that some of the developing talent is being kept down. If WWE split them up creative would be forced to develop other programs outside of Cena and Orton, plus individually they could help get other talent over.

I am sure WWE fears lower ratings on RAW if they were to move one of them, but I think part of their ratings issue is due to how stagnant the title picture is right now. At any given time on RAW you know Cena or Orton will either be the champion or number one contender.

I imagine ego figures into this as well since Smackdown is WWE’s tier two program Cena or Orton would probably consider it a demotion.

Another thing to throw out is: where will HHH go when he comes back? I doubt very seriously if he will go to Smackdown? How can RAW have all three of these major draws on one program and hope to move other talent up into the world title picture?

Good idea but not until after Wrestlemania.

I would agree moving Orton or Cena to Smackdown & have the other stay on RAW. Clearly they are the biggest draws. The only thing to factor into this is the demographic department because Orton draws in the 18-35 while Cena draws in 5-17. But I would agree though putting one of them on Smackdown would be smart let alone gives Smackdown a big boost.

Also, just to note. Many within WWE don't feel Smackdown is the #2 show & now, that Smackdown is on a NBC program (SyFy) WWE has stated that it will put the same level of interest put into as RAW. I mean WWE did a split with it's two bigs before with Rock & Austin. Austin on RAW & Rock on Smackdown & I can tell you Smackdown was NO second tier program by any means.

Well if that does happen the one they put on SD wil look weeker than the one on Raw...
Maybe they want them both to be on the same brand so they feud for a couple of years as both faces of company then have a huge match at wm 30 or something :)
