Sicne there seems to be a ton of threads on how bad Smackdown has been and how hit and miss RAW has been, I was wondering, if you ran the WWE, how would you divide up the rosters to make both brands competitive yet separate from each other?
Here are both the rosters. I have taken out all non-wreslters and part timers (Rock/Foley) and permanently injured (Nowinski) and women as really, all wreslting women should be on one show and all eye candy should be on the other.
What that leaves is about 60 wrestlers. Since 30 and 30 is too easy and really toom any to have them all on TV, let's go with a maximum of 20 on each roster. This way the rosters will be a small enough roster to get everyone into and angle butr not too small that there will be a limited amount of feuds.
Also, if this has been done recently, please feel free to delete this thread (not that you need my permission to do so).

Actually, that schedule seems to indicate they're cutting the show to one hour. No mention is made of them extending programming an extra hour. I'd guess, for foriegn markets, they could come up with enough filler to make up the missing hour.
