The more they advance with the brand split, the more i'm wondering why they have it in the first place especially now. When they started the brand split 3 years ago, i thought this will be a good thing for them as it give more opportunities for wrestlers that normally don't get tv time. They were doing single brand PPV which was a good thing again since it gave more exposure to guys and girls that normally wouldn't get a chance to shine. Then this year after mania, they decided to have all PPV be dual brand which kinda made the point of the brand split null and void but still the shows felt different and it still felt like their was a difference between raw and smackdown, then this week happened and they started the whole ''Fresh and New'' era and now both shows fell exactly the same, their not a big difference between the quality of Raw and smackdown anymore. It's all about the mcmahon being the savior of the company and not about making each show feel different. So why have a brand split if you're going to have the same peoples on top for both show. What makes Raw different from smackdown now outside that one is the red brand and one is the blue brand? i just don't get with all that wrestling knowledge that HHH and vince have between the 2, how they can so misread they're audience and think that fans that are only watching smackdown want the same thing that raw is offering every week.
