The WWE Just announced that on July 19 Smackdown will be moving to Tuesdays and going live every single week. Along with this the brand split will be coming back with a draft. This will seperate the RAW and Smackdown brand with different superstars each. This could mean the return of the World Heavyweight Championship giving the fans a main champion for both shows. Here is an excerpt of the announcement from wwe.com
“A SmackDown shakeup is about to completely reshape all of WWE. Beginning July 19, the second longest-running weekly episodic program in television history, SmackDown, will move from Thursday to Tuesday nights and air LIVE each and every week — for the first time ever — at 8/7 C on USA Network, the exclusive cable home to WWE’s marquee properties.
This bold move will have major ramifications for all of WWE and exemplify the New Era, as both Raw and SmackDown will each feature their own unique rosters and rivalries following an imminent Superstar draft.”
And for those wondering here’s my take on it
