How to improve Smackdown?

Maybe peoples opinion on how bad it is may vary but everyone generally agrees Smackdown needs some improvements. Heres my ideas.

 

Tape it live, cut the adverts especially during matches (that really annoys me and rarely happens on raw), sack Michael Cole, bring in some different stars to have new feuds, bring in quality cruiserweights and dedicate a portion of the show to them.

 

Scrap most of the useless diva's unless they can be used in some way like Amy Weber was. There is also no need for no name wrestlers to be on the show unless they are going to be regulars and cause an upset.

One thing I never understood about Smackdown! is that it's taped, but they have adverts during matches. Why? That's footage that they've taken the time to record, but is never shown on TV. It wouldn't be so bad if they took breaks and when they came back they carried on from the exact spot that they left, but they don't even do that. That would be the first thing I'd change about Smackdown!, it annoys me that I can miss like 10 minutes of wrestling action on each show for no apparent reason.

Cancel it. I'd enjoy SD! alot more if it no longer excisted! lol

 

If I had to improve it, though, I'd simply end the brand extention and combine the rosters, but that int going to happen. SD! are thin on talent, NAME talent. The cruisers will never be used right in WWE and SD! is like a cruiser show, so that explains something right off the bat.

They do have some good top card wrestlers such as Eddie guerrero, John Cena, Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Booker T etc. but the whole mid card needs sorting out, they need to find some more established wrestlers especially tag teams, cos apart from maybe Rey Mysterio and a few others the midcard is not good, maybe after wrestlemania if they have a brand split maybe some people like Jericho, Edge, Hbk or something could head to smackdown along with Val Venis who would make a very good mid card wrestler like he was back in 98,99, and maybe they could send some of the lesser talent to Raw or even release them

Im gonna go with TWO's member and heel of the week, BeltMark. The only way to make SD better without ending the brand extension is to ruin Raw by giving it all of Raw's talent. Join Raw and SmackDown and you have a decent sized talent pool rather than a mediocre one on Raw and a crap one on SmackDown.

I agree with slimjim' date=' belt, and jacko. I never understood why they did the split thing in the first place. It was much better when the storyline was continuous throughout the week, and one could actually [i']look forward[/i] to smackdown.

 

agreed it was better before you'd watch raw then you couldnt wait to see SD to find out was was gonna happen, but they had to spilt it too many superstars after the buy outs

 

but to make it better if they just got a decent exective producer for the show

like wcw did with bisshoff let him call all the shots, some creative storylines it could turn back round

The main diffrence between smackdown and RAW is that RAW focuses on the more on the story as smackdown choose to focus on the wrestlers and make them more and more diffrent from each other. I think Raw and Smackdown are equally good

Ending the roster split would completely ruin both shows, and mean a lot of guys would have to be sacked to accomodate the main eventers being on both shows.

 

One thing they should do on SD (and Raw as well really) is build a proper tag team division, instead of handing the belts to any two guys who happen to be over (see RVD/Rey) or guys who flopped as champ and/or have lame gimmicks (619 cam? lowrider? :roll).

 

Having 4 or 5 decent teams like they used to in the late 80's/early 90's would be great.

 

They should also ditch those two ugly bints Rochelle and whatever that Sable look-a-like was called, and show Michelle McCool doing somersaults some more. :xyx

Sack those brain dead bimbos if ever an ad for how stoopid and useless divas are came at no way out in those idiotic segments.

i think this is a good starting point. People often dismiss smackdowns roster and man they have talent dupree, dead man, angle, Booker t, eddie. Now i also agree that we need new writers in there and fresh talent i love the idea of Val going but not jericho maybe some1 else like Orton! Now they have invested in other talents like Swinger and Kazarian use these guys experiance to prop up Sds mid card and with new ideas, fueds and talent we could make smackdown better than it is cos lets be honest it cant get much worse

The thing is they need a break from bringing in all these new stars, sure it's nice to have some new faces and maybe they do have ability, but they need to start working on the other stars first. You've got people like dupree who has great talent and has been in the buisness for 2 years yet already he is slipping down to velocity. Also they have some people like Heidenreich who truthfully needs more work headlining with the Undertaker. They need to work more on the main eventers cause I feel some of them slipping down the card, like Kane I know it can't all be about one star but the last big match he had was with Benoit for the title and yet now he is facing Simon dean and Tyson Tomko. More work on the current superstars gets them more respect.

still chuging the haterade huh? well whatever. i

say that apart from the cruisers being under used and the women being misused hugely the wwe's real problem is the old guys hanging about and the over long promos which actually they seem to have cut down on recently with the exception of the JBL party this week on SD! so really i think that while WWE is not doing great they do have all the tools to make a huge big show sized improvement if they can just put it all together

We are supposed to think it's live, that's why.

Like when Batista went to SD, he said "looks like I'm going to Smackdown this Thursday". Er, no, you'll go tomorrow, dude or you'll miss it by two days!

Best things to do with Smackdown:

 

Get rid of The Dudleys (too many tag teams!)

Bury Kidman (whilst in the middle of his first good angle ever!)

Bury Paul London as well, unless he gets more interesting boots.

Bring in loads of bits of fluff in non wrestling roles

Make a mid card tag team jobber the champion.

Have one of your best wrestlers wrestle nobodies each week and Santa Claus on a PPV.

Get rid of Paul Heyman (what is with this "accentuate the positives and hide the negatives" rubbish? OUT! NOW!)

Make a referee the GM.

 

 

 

Good ideas, huh?
