I was just thinking about that "unannounced" PPV scheduled in June as a replacement of Bad Blood. Too bad though, kinda wanted to see a Hell in A Cell. o well, anyway, i know i've heard the rumors (or is it for sure?) about the ECW reunion PPV thingy going on. If its not gonna happen, ever wondered about the possibility of a Raw vs. Smackdown PPV?? Just Wondering.

It's called WrestleMania. They've been really careful about keeping the two shows apart except for WrestleMania, so why change that now?
EDIT: Although...I DO like the idea of King of the Ring returning.

Wrestlemania is probably the closest thing we'll ever get to a RAW vs. SD PPV, unless decides to unite the two brands once more, but that looks unlikely for the next year or so.
I agree that if an ECW Reunion show falls through and they can't get it together then maybe should use the PPV to have a clash of the champions (WCW pun intended) and have RAW and Smackdown clash about in a supercard. King of the Ring sounds nice too, but I doubt it'll happen.
If not during this 'unnamed PPV', then perhaps maybe they can use the clash during their Summerslam PPV? After all, of the Big Four PPVs, the others have their sellings points. Wrestlemania is the end/start of the calendar year, Survivor Series is about the team vs. team/elimination matches, and the Royal Rumble itself is its own gimmick. Why not add something to the Summerslam card?

SummerSlam's spot on the schedule is such that it doesn't really need it's own gimmick. With the other three majors, they all fall within five months of one another. SummerSlam, on the other hand, is the only joint show in a 7-8 month stretch. There's enough time since WrestleMania that just having all the guys from both shows on the same card is enough of a gimmick for SummerSlam. Adding Raw vs. Smackdown matches to the show would just dilute WrestleMania, IMO.
