I disagree with the notion that we would see better story lines if the shows were comingled. At least, I believe we would not see more story lines and all of the talent being used. With a smaller roster to focus on, it should be (emphasis on should be) easier for them to generate a story line for each member of the roster. But, as WWE has proven in the past, they tend to drop the ball. Remember when Triple H personally requested to bring Jack Swagger and Evan Bourne to Raw? Swagger got a World Championship out of it, but Bourne got lost in the shuffle. Bourne! One of the most athletically gifter talents they had available, who was called over because of Triple-freakin'-H, and even with the boss's son-in-law backing him, he got lost in the shuffle. Now, I'm not saying they failed to ever do anything with Bourne again after that. In fact, his run with Chris Jericho was great. But imagine how buried he would have ended up if he had a roster double the size in front of him.
