Correct me if I am wrong but I remember the brand split originally being done because of the loaded roster at the time and the ability to have 2 different groups touring for house shows which would cut the travel in half for each group. Now that the house shows may go away what is the point of having the brand split? Are the TV contracts so ironclad that they are necessary to keep certain stars on one channel?
This last roster split has been worse than all the previous ones. It doesn't matter if their roster is loaded with decent talent if the WWE keeps them under a glass ceiling and will only promote certain stars. How about dumping half the talent back to NXT and keeping the proven draws on the main roster?
