Blame WWE Brand Split on USA Network

Blame WWE Brand Split on USA Network as KOP discusses what WWE is forced to deal with as Smackdown is set to premiere Tuesdays LIVE starting with the WWE Draft.

WWE Brand Split

KOP compares this to what WCW was dealt with by TBS and TNT, and how the creative of the Attitude Era could withstand the creative need. Plus, why USA Network is making this move now given the unstable cable atmosphere, and what this could mean for WWE next round of negotiations with USA Network if they can’t deliver.

Plus, CM Punk speaks out WWE, the Chris Benoit tragedy and we recap ROH Best in the World 2016.
