When there was no brand extension?

I could go on and on ranting why I don't like the brand extension, the bottom line is that I've always thought it sucks, I think Smackdown got the short end of the straw and I was againest the draft when it started. In fact I was the one with my jaw dropped saying "they can't be doing this" when Linda McMahon first announced the draft.

Am I the only one who wants to see new fueds, new tag teams, new stables, new matches, new fantasy match ideas, new storylines, title mergers, and the end of general managers and the revivial of the commissioner role?

I hate the brand extension, but I fully understand the reasoning behind it.....guaranteed contracts have a lot to do with it.....regardless, I think they would be going backwards to end it now.....

I do miss the the days before the Brand Extension but I agree with Oeo that they would be going backwards if they ended it now,it would be nice if they did end it but I don't see it happening anytime soon.

ive always hated the brand extention as well .... ive almost completely stopped watching smackdown because of it, and honestly, im surprised i still watch wrestling at all ....

moreso .. i miss having wcw and ecw to watch as well, we got more of a variety, and since we dont get tna except on ppv in canada, there is no other choice but wwe, which kinda sucks

I understand why it's nessasary, like salary caps in sports, it's to give the other's a better chance for TV time, The reason is because they would limit the Main stars taking up time on Both Shows and giving all the other superstar minimal Exposure. I mean sure Triple H is great but I don't feel like seeing him two times a week.....

Whatever.....

Yea I miss the good ol' days of the WWE, where both Raw and SD weren't separate. I still don't like the idea of it and I think that if the WWE were to get rid of the brand extension, the ratings for both Raw and SD would be higher than it is now. But if it weren't for the brand extension we would of probably never noticed guys like Randy Orton and John Cena. It would of always been the same guy on top of both shows and guys like Orton and Cena would of never gotton the kind of push there getting now. If the WWE would ever get another competior like WCW, both Raw and SD would probably unite again because I think the whole point of the extension was to get alittle bit of competition in the WWE

i miss it they could build better feuds with no split. and now they have to have their main feuds go on for 3 or 4 mths because they only have 4 shows to build a feud instead of 8

I've supported the brand extension from the beginning, but they have handled it awful at times.


I like HHH a lot, but I don't want him taking up a shitload of time on both shows.

Instead of one night a week, HBK would be whoring out the spotlight TWO nights a week. Who wants to see that?

Kane would be on two nights a week.

RVD might be on two nights week.

We might not have guys like Orton, Benjamin, Batista, Cena, LEsnar (when he was there), etc.

There definitely wouldn't be any cruiserweights.

More women's matches.

Benoit and Eddie probably wouldn't have ascended to these heights.



The brand extension isn't all good though. They completely fucked up the second lottery draft, the tag division became watered down, they still don't use cruiserweights to their advantage, etc. Also, some feuds are very well developed, and last a good amount of time, but sometimes it still seems like they rush everything right before the PPV.


Fact is, the brand extension has been a positive. Everyone doesn't see it that way though

The brand extension is good, especially now. The big stars are on RAW so they dont whine and complain that they dont get TV time, and so that the mark fan base stays. Smackdown is nothing more than a training program - they're grooming the kids to become superstars when wrestling comes out of this slump. Don't put it down to the brand extension, about ratings - to the news media, it's 'uncool'. That's why.
