Since it was announced that a brand split is going to be reintroduced to WWE, there has been a huge amount of speculation regarding which superstars will be on which show.
Whilst at present Monday Night Raw is classed as the company’s leading programme, the introduction of SmackDown being broadcast live on Tuesday night’s means it will certainly be on a similar level, especially when combined with the brand split.
The idea of a brand split is one which is set to be introduced at an ideal time for Vince McMahon and his employees, as the current main roster lacks a full sense of direction for many WWE superstars.

In addition, this method will enable several talented wrestlers from the company’s developmental brand of NXT to achieve their position at the top level of the professional wrestling industry.
With so many current WWE wrestlers set to be reorganised in relation to the brand split, it comes as little surprise that many have been airing their views over which show they would prefer to be a part of in the future.
As Cageside Seats has reported, Sasha Banks recently made it clear that SmackDown is the show she would like to be a part of as it was her favourite growing up.
The site also revealed that Sheamus seems more inclined to be a part of SmackDown than Raw following the split, because it was the former which ‘made’ both him and Daniel Bryan.
These two wrestlers are significantly popular amongst the WWE roster at present, meaning their opinions on such an important topic within the business are worth remembering.
It is interesting to note therefore that these WWE superstars are more in favour of being a part of SmackDown than Raw, but their reasoning of how important SmackDown as a show has been in relation to their wrestling career speaks volumes.
Whilst Monday Night Raw is undoubtedly a hugely popular weekly show, it seems as though it is at present less important to certain WWE wrestlers than SmackDown has been in the earlier stages of their connection with wrestling.
With SmackDown having more of a nostalgic impact therefore; it comes as little surprise that it would be the preferable show to be on for a number of professional wrestlers, especially when being given such an opportunity as with the brand split.
If this option is one which is favoured by several WWE performers, it could certainly mean that members of the WWE Universe can look forward to a brand new type of SmackDown and doubtlessly, an incredible rivalry in the brand split.
