You say this, but Raw airs three times a week in Canada. It's certainly not without precedent. Besides, the aim when it comes to getting huge ratings is to get huge advertising dollars. But if the advertising dollars gained through multiple broadcasts offset whatever losses are incurred by slightly declining viewership on the original broadcast, what's the problem?
Also, GSB says repeats are already out there. So clearly you have no idea what a good idea is.
As for the proposed solutions, I'm not feeling it. Especially the bit about Raw and SmackDown both being 2.5 hours a piece. It's still five hours of programming a week that WWE doesn't know how to fill. Shuffling deck chairs doesn't fix larger creative problems.
