Anyway, my idea would have low-mid card talent appearing regularly on FCW shows while staying on the main roster. They could really develop teams and plant seeds for future feuds. There is absolutely NO reason why wrestlers like Regal or Chavo or Goldust can't stay relevant in FCW if it was made a legitimate 3rd brand. Of course the problem here, the reason Vince did away with ECW is because he wants all his shows to be A shows - he can't seem to come to terms with the fact that one will always be second to the other. By having a downsized production he's afraid of looking inferior in some regards - I'm sure his hope for NXT was to blaze a trail *ahemXFLcough*, but Vince was guilty of pushing too hard too soon here and he screwed it up.
Once again, the biggest adversary to Vince is Vince.
