I don't know what kind of change would be a real improvement.. I don't personally mind the ramp that much and I think its a better way to set it up than to just have a flat walk down an aisle.. gives you something to play with for selling (rolling down the ramp) and all.

Nah, I love the ramp. It is great in person and gives the entering Superstar a look of being larger than life. It sets the WWF even more from indy shows. Not that there is much comparison anyway. But the ramp is awesome.

Plus, the ramp lets us have those cool (infrared? black and white?) over-the-shoulder shots from behind of the wrestler walkiing down the ramp, that they started using in the "My Sacrifice" videos. I *love* that angle, it's really emotionally stirring, like we can feel what the wrestler feels when they walk our into the cheering crowd...

Keep the Ramp, at least you can see who is coming out, I went to the Royal Rumble in 2001 with no ramp and could not see they leaving or entering the ring.

No, keep the ramp. Everyone can see who's making their way out for quicker response, it makes the entrances more showy, and it generally just looks cool.

Personally I wouldn't mind seeing the big RAW sign return. I'm sure that's just me though.

I like the ramp, it helps create an air of importance to the superstar enterance. The only thing I think that would work nearly as good would be a raised walkway, but that seems a little too "special occasion" like to me.

What they really need to do is ditch that crappy "titantron" stuff around that RAW logo. It looked ok when it was "Raw is War" but now that it's just plain RAW, it don't look right. Unless I've missed them changing it back or something.

I like the ramp and TitanTron and think the Raw entrance set looks tight. I DO, however, think they need a new logo for Raw. I understand why they changed the name of the show back to just "Raw," but the logo now sucks. The ringside banners now look really shitty too.

Keep the set, get a new logo.

Keep the ramp for RAW, and go back to the old WCW elevated walkway for Smackdown. I can't stand the new Smackdown set, which is fine, since I can't stand Michael Cole either, and therefore either don't watch the show, or what it with the handy mute button on. But anyway......Oh yeah, keep the ramp.

"Loose the ramp"?

Is it too tight or something?

Noticing "loose" instead of "lose" is not nitpicking, it's common sense.

ObTopic: Keep the ramp, and I second squiz - add the elevated rampway for SmackDown!

I've always been a fan of the walkway that is level with the ring.

If they did loosen the ramp it'd be fun to watch someone get the Rock Bottom and have the whole thing come apart. It might add a bit to the drama.

I loved the elevated walkway when they used it for Thunder. Sting worked in a few really neat spots with it. I'd imagine there are more than a few people in the WWF who could come up with a few unique ways to use it.

And UT could drive his motorcycle right up to the ringropes. I don't know how he'd turn it around to drive back, but if he can make the steps magically move, he can find a way.

Related in the aesthetic sense, I'd like them to bring back the ring carts for Wrestlemania now that Hogan is back. Even if it's only for Hogan vs. Rock. Jericho would have to steal one, of course.

Now that would be cool! That and a good hardcore match on the ring cart.

When I was a kid my Dad told me those carts were the rings they used for midget wrestling, they just put wheels on them for WM 3. I think thats why I am so messed up now.
