Your idea on the women is trash.. Let's leave it the way it is. Women's wrestling is boring in WWE, maybe because all the women are so unlikable. It's great in Japan and the indy's, but in WWE, it's terrible.

Superstar Shake-up
Have two SS take place. The first one takes place in June and the second one takes place in November. Their nature changes, because now, they last for a month like a transfer period. So the first one lasts for the entire June and the second one for the entire November. The furst one ends at June's MITB PPV and the second one at the Survivor Series PPV. That way you have some suspense, as you don't know at which brand the briefcase will end up or which superstar will jump ship during the 5vs5 SSeries Raw vs SD match.
NXT is also eligible to the two shake ups. So you can have some mystery spots in the Series match. Also, main roster stars should end up to NXT as well.
Two shake ups also solve another problem. Women's feuds and tag team feuds tend to get stale after a while, because each roster on its own does not have depth, so it runs out of feuds. A second shake up could help stir things and keep the year interesting. Also, being closer to WM, you can use it to create a more compelling card by making the necessary changes.

Equal Brands
I'm tired of not seeing The Usos on the main card, or watch Jinder become a world champion. The brands need to be equal. They must be equal. Compare the two divisions for the women for example. Raw has every marketable woman while SD only has Charlotte, Becky and Naomi.

Women
Have two women main event Summerslam. Charlotte vs Ronda could easily achieve that, even Charlotte vs Trish. Go all out.

Scrap gimmicky PPVs
They are not necessary any more. Only Mitb matters. Why have gimmicky PPVs, when only the main event is a gimmick match and not the entire PPV and you can easily just sell the match instead of naming the entire PPV after the gimmick, also taking away the surprise factor?

Bring back King of the Ring
But make it serious. Network tournaments are awesome. And what's more awesome is WWE's capability of signing certain wrestlers to those, big time wrestlers, only for them specifically. So imagine an international open tournament, with the entire WWE roster competing against wrestlers from all over the world and against themselves. This can end up being the Champions League of wrestling.
Now you have the big Six. Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble, Summerslam, Money In The Bank, Survivor Series and King of the Ring. A big event taking place every couple of months. Of course KoR is not an one night only thing, but has a duration, since it's a long tournament, but the final 8 take place at a PPV.

Outside of maybe changing the ppv schedule to 5 co branded ppv (the big 4 + mitb), 2 brand on ppv in February (fastlane and elimination chamber), and the rest would be one brand only ppv per month. Outside of that I wouldn't change a thing. Raw is and always will be the a-show so it's normal that they get bigger startup, smackdown is the show they use to create new stars and if you change that format, a lot of the guys and girls that have became marketable stars because of smackdown wouldn't have become stars mostly because raw just focus on the main event and upper mid card guy. Alexa bliss, the miz, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn,shinsuke nakamura, all became bigger stars because they we're or are on the smaller show. Owens, Zayn and nakamura wouldn't even be close to the main event scene on raw and while Owens was universal champion when he was on raw, he always felt like a afterthought, on smackdown, he fell like a star.

Another example of this is Charlotte, I fell like she fell like a fresher character on smackdown then her whole run on raw mostly because on smackdown they don't booked the women's division to be a promotional tool for the whole women's revolution gimmick they have been doing for the last 3 or 4 years. Charlotte became the poster child for the women's revolution and it got boring real quick at less on smackdown, she's not as much of the focus all the time and their able to hide her limitations better.

The point is, I feel like while it fun to fantasy book wwe, in reality,they don't need to make a lot of drastic changes, in fact they are doing really well with the business model they have right now. Continue to do the one superstar shakeup a year and continue to use smackdown as a proving grown for the main roster while you use raw as the big show.

The issue with this is that WWE recently his an all-time high stock price. That's what's important at the moment. Top WWE shareholders do seem like the kind of people to not care about the price first, but they kind of have to. With the price that high, that means things are working. That means more things, not less. If anything, you would probably see an additional title and an additional show. Anything that adds value to the Network is a benefit.

Why would there be a women's elimination chamber match? You can't just announce something and expect people to care.

You can't change the run time of Raw and SD. They have contracts.

You want to retire the Intercontinental Championship, one of the most prestigious and best titles in WWE for over 20 years?

We don't need yet another show on Friday night. 5 hours is enough.

SummerSlam should be dual-branded. Period.

And Stephanie's the GM of Raw? Dear Lord...

We don't need 2 women's titles on Raw. The current champion Alexa doesn't even have a storyline... you think they could now write for two champions?

Look I'm sorry, but this wouldn't work. I appreciate the effort and do enjoy posts like this, but I disagree with most of your points.

I think the biggest changes need on raw. They desperately need to switch Strowman to smack down. He is one of the most popular superstars on the roster of either brand but he’s been given the back burner because of Lesnar and Reigns. They’re never going to give him a title run on raw as long as Reigns and Lesnar are there. I don’t necessarily say that Owens needs a brand change but I’d like to see him as a much bigger player for either brand he might be on in 2018. I wouldn’t mind seeing a long term tag team title run for him and Zayne before they turn again. Raw desperately needs help with the tag team division and letting Rollins and Jordan win the belts aren’t helping any. Hopefully thry’ll Bring in at least the authors of pain to help out.

Won't happen because strowman is Vince next project now that reigns is where he want him to be. After mania, I wouldn't be surprise to see strowman be put on the fast track to the universal title and I wouldn't even been surprise if he beats reigns for the title at summerslam.

I'd love to see 205 Live go away replaced by the women. They could still be on both Raw and Smackdown but the headline match for that week would be on their own program.

I tend to hate superstar shakeups. Let's just have either GM appear on each program to propose a trade of one wrestler for another. If they wanted to move Strowman to SD for example, have him get "traded" for Owens and Zahn.

I support the first point on the women because I literally quit watching heavily due to their treatment of them on the roster. Disagree strongly with the women competing with men more thing. I get wrestling is fake and sports entertainment/WWE is a live-action soap opera and circus, but it's extremely hard to have women compete with men and do it right. I'd love WWE continuing to put out bad content because more people would continue to switch to watching pro-wrestling, but those aren't new fans really. Maybe to pro-wrestling, but not the idea. I rather WWE continue the path they're going down slowly improving and remaining safe instead of really throw a wrench into it. I want new fans to come in slowly over time rather than destroying a century+ of great buisness like the Attitude Era did.

*Not like a single Male competitor versus Female competitor bout would do this, but anything really edgy or different I rather not happen at all due to an elongated track record of booking & televised failures cause by WWE Creative.

I feel like it'd be easier to keep 205 Live considering they tape it next to Smackdown, but it is a bit of a waste of time & talent. They can't really retcon it with all the time already put into it, but no one really watches it or is a die-hard fan. I'm sure they exist, but that number is nowhere near providing a monetary benefit or even keeping eyes and wallets on the WWE Network and brand. I know they're running kind of test live shows with 205 Live, but I'm not sure when those were or if they already happened. They have Broken Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt on them facing off for some reason. I guess they're not too confident in their 205 Live talent drawing a relatively small crowd (Even by ROH, TNA, etc. standards) in a series of historically good wrestling towns. They could simply just want reassurance as well and figure since they have so much talent they can spare two guys with a relatively large audience in the world of pro-wrestling to guarantee at least breaking even. It wouldn't be a bad formula to do something like that with niche brands in regards to live events or one-off ideas like the U.K. tournament and Mae Young classic. Considering it's carried NXT for quite awhile as well as the Main Roster I assume it wouldn't be too hard to apply to a brand like 205 Live.

Keep the IC title, but put it back on Smackdown within the next superstar shakeup however you have to do it. Move the U.S. back to RAW. It really just kind of doesn't fit a lot of Smackdown has been portrayed as within the time it's been both a separate and live brand. Put them into a feud where the title actually matters and people want to compete for it whether it just be playing into a grudge or be the actual prize. I'm not sure in regards to the WWE U.K. title, but I think it's fine where it's at for now although I'd enjoy seeing Bate versus anyone really on a WWE PPV and maybe a little bit of a stretch, but the Wrestlemania after 2018's.

The PPV schedule was revised a few months ago I thought due to this year being a complete mess and to an extent disaster. In comparison to this year I believe what I saw if it was legitimate was a lot better and a major improvement. I believe they cut a few PPVs and altered usual patterns of the length of time leaving just enough time in between to really let storylines play out and have a bit more time to create quality content. They should really just do 4 for Smackdown, 5 for RAW, 4 Dual brands including Wrestlemania. Then with all the Takeovers in between and other events like the CWC, MYC, U.K. Tournament, etc. you have plenty of content to keep all of your fans content. That's just straight in-ring action as well so if you really take in all of the other content they produce that makes them so much more than just wrestling it wouldn't hurt as long as they got their buisness straight. Which probably won't happen, because it's generally awful right now in all aspects. You never know though because in recent years times have been changing so rapidly it's nearly impossible to gauge anything that isn't blatantly obvious. WWE definitely isn't that even if you want to pretend they are has a knack for taking people by surprise for what is worth.

Note: Idk. Some of this is a bit nonsensical and a bit of a deep dive, because I just woke up. My apologies, but I think it conveys at least how a part of me feels.
