    Why are wwe bringing back the brand extention?? I thought they got rid of it so superstars can fight on whatever brand they want. :confused:

    They even unified the world heavyweight championship with the wwe championship, to get the wwe world heavyweight championship. So the show has one main world title. Which is now exclusive to smackdown.

    Now they bringing a new world title exclusive to raw, called wwe universal championship?? Why can't they
    just have one world title and the champion fight on both brands?

    To be fair, I'm no champion for the Brand Extension, but it gives plenty of midcard wrestlers the opportunity to shine - and even the likes of Ziggler, who had become lost in the shuffle when it was one gigantic roster.

    So if they creating two world tiles now, what about the tag team tiles, will they create a new one aswell?

    remains to be seen - but I expect so. And probably a second women's title, too. It gives both divisions on SmackDown something to fight for.

    I've quite enjoyed Roman Reigns from what I've seen, because I treat him as a heel, and he's been one of the best heels in years. He's got nuclear heat, such a cocky smirking *******, keeps coming out on top (though now the heel is getting his obligatory comeuppance), cheating (drugs). And n Raw he looked like he had short hair, which made him look a great heel.

    And this is a pretty damning summary of the draft:

    - SmackDown was apparently billed as a show providing opportunity to youth but it seems like nearly everyone who got exposure were notably older veterans (Cena, Orton, Kane, Rhyno, AJ Styles, Natalya, Ziggler, Miz, Del Rio).

    - As well as the male stars, Raw has the two most popular tag teams (The New Day, Enzo and Cass) and its two top female wrestlers (Charlotte, Sasha Banks).

    - Bayley was not drafted, while Jax, Carmella and Bliss were, and this shortly after Generic Blonde Whasserface Beth Phoenix 2.0 debuted helping Charlotte on top of that.

    - WWE split up couple Alberto Del Rio and Paige, and now they'll barely see each other unless house shows are being shared.

    - After being demoted to Smackdown, Jerry Lawler's gone down again. Now he's only doing pre-shows. He has been replaced with the charistmatic David Otunga.

    - Not only was Brock Lesnar not #1 pick of either company, let alone whoever picked first, but it took 7 picks before he was chosen, and he has, will or can brutally sodomise every pick #1 to #7 even if they ganged up on him and draw more ratings than all of them combined bar maybe Cena (I don't know the numbers and this is all just made up facts).

    Bayley is on the main roster now, in fairness. Arguably, she's seen her stock rise because she wasn't lost in the shuffle of Draft night alongside the other NXT call ups.*

    Thoughts on Balor and Ziggler main eventing the 2nd biggest show of the calendar? And who does Roman fight?

    A heel turn and Reigns vs Sami Zayn makes perfect sense from here.

    Do you think the Reigns experiment is over, or is it a case of punishing him for a while before putting him back as the guy?

    Ziggler won the number 1 contenders match yesterday so he's fighting Ambrose for the WWE Title at Slam. Roman is still my favourite and he's main evented the last 2 WM's. Will be strange to see him in the midcard of SummerSlam.

    Tough to say. I'd wager on the latter. Guys have come back from worse to be main event stars. Think Reigns has some making up to do, though.

    I can see a HHH circa 1997 happening. Summerslam seems to be lacking some star power though:

    Rollins vs Balor
    Ambrose vs Ziggler
    Lesnar vs Orton
    Cena vs Styles

    The only one appealing to the casual fans there is the Lesnar match. Would like to see Taker return and challenge Reigns to add some marketability to the show.

    Yeah, definitely wouldn't mind Undertaker returning and getting a spot on the card. He's one of the big question marks from the Brand Extension.*

    They need to make Reigns a monster heel, and wipe the smirk off of his face. Only then can he turn face and become great again.
    I'm loving this Orton character btw, because it's the Orton i've been wanting for years.
