WWE Draft: Why Nothing Has Really Changed?

WWE Draft has happened and KOP explains why nothing has really changed and explains to XB1Chuck why wishful thinking is not the answer. 

WWE Draft

KOP explains how the WWE Draft exposes the lack of star power on the roster. What good is it to call up more NXT originals. Plus, how there are no changes to the look or feel of the product, meanwhile he tries to give the benefit of the doubt when most kids never saw the brand split.

We also preview and predict the WWE Battleground PPV and analyze the Costco like wholesale booking of these two go-home shows that did nothing to build the PPV.

WWE Brand Split : Make SmackDown Live More NXT, Less RAW

I’m coming to grips with the WWE Brand Split. If they are really going ahead with it, they need to accomplish three essential goals.

WWE Brand Split

They can start with making SmackDown Live more like NXT, and less like Monday Night RAW.

Aesthetically changing the look of the set from the ramp to the ring should not just mean the simple change of changing the ring ropes to blue. You know WWE is going to take most of the upcoming talent that could use a boost from being given an exclusive spotlight on a custom brand like SmackDown. Vignettes, video packages should take more of a NXT feel. The arena should not have the look of a big arena that RAW broadcasts live from. It should look like it’s being held in a more intimate setting but not so small like you would see at Full Sail.

Brand the titles on SmackDown as SmackDown champions. Think how WWE treated ECW.

Instead of rehashing the old WCW World Heavyweight Title or the Divas Title, we should have a newly crowned SmackDown champion, Smackdown Women’s Champion and SmackDown Tag Team Champions . If you’re not going to allow titles to be defended on multiple shows then leave the WWE Championship,  the Womens Championship and the World Tag Team Titles on RAW with the main WWE branding.  Meanwhile, the midcard should get split up between both shows. IC belt to RAW and US Title to SmackDown maybe.

Most important! Make new stars that can replace or logically complete with the Top WWE Superstars.

This is the ultimate end goal! No matter how the WWE brand split plays out. WWE must accomplish the following for their immediate future. John Cena, The Rock, Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker make up the biggest names in the company. I don’t see Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose or anyone else on the main roster. Do you?

These four cannot continue to be the featured attractions at every WrestleMania. Besides the growth of the WWE Network, this has to be the ultimate top priority for WWE for the immediate future. If the brand split is the answer, I’ll eat my words!- KOP

WWE Draft Plans, Responds To Final Deletion

WWE Draft is next week, and KOP explains the inevitable end-goal they must accomplish. Plus, they respond to TNA’s Final Deletion. 

WWE Draft

KOP compares how WWE chose to create their own version which was eerily similar to TNA’s The Final Deletion. He also discusses how if WWE is going full speed ahead with the brand split and the WWE Draft,  they must be able to accomplish one important goal if they accomplish everything.

We also preview what WWE has done to build WWE’s Battleground, including the indescribable push to make Darren Young Great Again.

#TheFinalDeletion and a July 4th Food Fight Fail

KOP gives real time commentary on #TheFinalDeletion between Brother Nero Jeff Hardy and Broken Matt Hardy. 

#TheFinalDeletion

We also crap on the July 4th Food Fight Fail on RAW, praise AJ Styles and the Club on their #BeatUpJohnCena (as well as Enzo and Big Cass in general) promo and succumb to the idea that Roman Reigns must turn heel. We also comment on the trivial storyline with the New Day and The Wyatt Family.
