It's true that during the Attitude Era WWE's roster was small, so small that 2 hours pf RAW was enough to make a compelling show. A small roster, but a roster full of talent. Austin, Rock, Foley, Triple H, Angle, Jericho, Undertaker, Kane.. these guys managed to "swim with the sharks and survive" back then. So during the AE we see the meaning of quality > quantity, hence WWF > WCW. In the Golden Era, WWF had a large roster, but much less exposure and some quality stars like Hogan, Savage, Warrior, Million Dollar Man, Roddy Pipper etc. Here, we see the meaning that overexposure plays in the quality of the product. In the New Generation Era, WWE definately had talent, but they lacked drawing power. So what happened there? You had Bret Hart, HBK, Yokozuna, Razor Ramon, Diesel, Undertaker, Owen Hart, Mr. Pefect, British Bulldog. Well IMO, I think Vince just used their wrestlers in the wrong way back then. Perfect, Hart, Razor, Bulldog and Undertaker were never World Champions in the New Gen Era. In fact, only Undertaker became a world champ in 1997 with another, sort-lived run in 1991. So one can say that in the New Gen Era, WWF used their roster not in its full potential. Now in the Ruthless Agression Era, WWE had a huge roster, full of talent. So they introduced the brand split. What really worked, was that they gave RAW and Smackdown an identity and made them equal. Each show had a core of certain wrestlers. Each show had an elite, just like WWF had an elite back in the AE. They treated each brand as a wrestling company. RAW had Evolution, Goldberg, Jericho, Edge, HBK and SD had Lesnar, Taker, Angle, Eddie. From 2002 until 2005 there were very few swaps between the shows and even after 2005, each brand still kept their "special core" until 2007. Which brings me to the current product Today, we seem to have everything negative WWE has done over the ages, all in one place: A large roster Some quality players that get lost in the shuffle and everyone, except Roman and Brock, looks equal to each other. Styles and Owens are two other names that stand out, mostly because of their unique abilities and not so much because of the WWE. WWE tries to throw everyone at every position all the time. A rotation in the main event is always welcome, but you need an "elite". Who's the elite today? Over-exposure Brands that lost their identity and we're still 1,5 year into the split I don't really have a question to ask you guys, just talk about this subject.
