    Smackedown Right Where We Started

    With the WWE Draft taking place a few weeks ago, it seems that Smackdown received the short end of the stick again!

    If WWE was so secure that RAW, their flagship program, could survive why not put John Cena on Smackdown and let Randy Orton carry RAW. It has been proven with recent ratings that Randy Orton being the lone ranger on Smackdown isn't working for the brand.

    The biggest problem within the WWE is that it showcases the wrong talent and promotes people like Michael Cole over an established heel CM Punk. With the strength of CM Punk, Randy Orton, Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, and Rey Mysterio, I think if used efficiently and then making Big Show the feared powerhouse he used to be, that would be a winning recipe to keep RAW ratings strong.

    Since Undertaker is considered retired then Smackdown needs John Cena to carry the brand. If Chris Jericho returns I would put him on Smackdown and then have Christian, Mark Henry, and Sheamus promoted as their top tier superstars.

    Lets not get started on the WWE so called "Divas"! Other than Kharma, the "E" is lacking when it comes to having a solid Women's Division. Since Michelle McCool left, the "E" is in trouble. Had they effieciently kept pushing Maryse, Beth Phoenix, and started using Gail Kim, then the division would at least be watchable instead of the Bella Twins.

    My fantasy rosters would include for Smackdown: John Cena, Chris Jericho, Mark Henry, Kane, Christian, and Sheamus. RAW: Randy Orton, CM Punk, The Miz, Rey Mysterio, Alberto Del Rio, and the Big Show. As far as the Divas go: RAW gets Kharma, Beth Phoenix, Kelly Kelly and Eve Torres. Smackdown gets Maryse, Gail Kim, Layla, and Natayla.

    I'm actually enjoying Smackdown more than RAW these days (not that I wasn't before). I think Orton is proving that he can carry a brand on his own on Smackdown at the moment. I'm enjoying Smackdown't main event scene more than RAW's at the moment. RAW has Cena, Miz, ADR and Mysterio. Smackdown has Orton, Christian, Sheamus and Henry, and I'm enjoying the latter group better.

    One problem is that the main heels of smackdown are currently Mark Henry who spent 80% of his career as a midcard and Sheamus who just made it out of midcard purgatory.
    Not removing until these happen... or until I get bored of them...

    - Zack Ryder holds his first LIVE Z True Long Island Stories on RAW
    - Cm Punk, Claudio Castagnoli, Chris Hero and Colt Cabana are all signed to form C4
    - More to come as I think of them

    One request fullfilled.

    I'm actually starting to warm up to Mark Henry. One of the very FEW examples that a heel turn could work for the better. He just looks angry all of the time so, this could be very great for him.

    Though aside from this past week, I enjoy Smackdown more, unfortunately the masses still prefer RAW and the ratings have spoken.

    Last Friday's SmackDown was a really good episode, it had everything an episode should have and on top op that there was 44 minutes of wrestling on a 75 min show.

    This is just plain right wrong ! Cena on SD! would be a joke , the guy is an average wrestler and SD! is the wrestling brand Orton is doing good and has show he can have good matches on SD! Clearly all you watch is RAW which is almost like a talk show at times. The SD! writers are far better then the RAW ones.

    i said WWE Screwed it up again because The Orton Thing was big Enough on its own but the John Cena thing was Just a Silly angle that deminished the Importance of the Draft

    More generally Smackdowns brand looks very weak now with only Orton Christian & Barrett being people i give a crap about
    THIS MAN IS GOING TO BE TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION ONE DAY...
