  1. WWE Forums is giving away a copy of WWE 2K18 for any platform! More info: WWE 2K18 Giveaway (PS4, Xbox One, Steam)
  1. Huh, so USA will have RAW, Smackdown, and a new Tough Enough show with WWE. :damn:

  2. GET HYPE!

    Nah, the product will still suck.
    • Disagree Disagree x 1
  3. Probably, but I never minded it. It's not the flagship show and I try to take that into consideration. I usually have it on in the background while I do other stuff anyway.
  4. Lol first quarter of 2016. That's Rumble season, looong time away. Probably won't make much of a differente then anyway
  5. The optimist in me says this will be positive for Smackdown since it puts it infront of A LOT more eyes than what Syfy could provide. And with the relationship between the USA network and WWE being what it is, WWE will be forced to step up to plate.

    The realist in me says wait and see.
  6. I'm sure USA Network is giddy knowing they'll now have two separate nights where one of their shows is #1 in the ratings. Beyond that, there's no reason to think the quality of the show will change any.

  7. I've seen talk of storylines carrying over. So something starts on RAW and ends on Smackdown. Which could be what they are talking about.

    Either that or a continuing of the soft brand split they have now. Using Bryan, Ziggler, Ambrose and Sheamus on Smackdown

  8. As long as it's a taped show it will never get the ratings they want it to.

    Make the show live again WWE.. Changing what segments are on the show will mean nothing as long as people can read spoilers.
  9. Fuck the What?! .. Put Main Event and Superstars on SyFy then.. why would you take viewers away from your own sibling station? now SyFy isn't going to be as legit as it was.
  10. So it's come to my attention that I don't get smackdown anymore. I saw the last one before Wm and that was the first time in a loooong time. The last two weeks I can't seem to find it anywhere. I live in Canada if that makes a difference lol
  11. I (and pretty much every member here) can hook you up if you wanna watch it by all means necessary :emoji_wink:
