"You can't fire a gun in a confined space! What are you tring to do, make us deaf?!" "Just get out of the chopper." "What?" "Get out of the chopper!" "The crops!?" - Jack Lemmon and James Garner, "My Fellow Americans", and the reason I say "The crops?" instead of "Huh?"
Im likin the cliffhanger idea, Using the competition angle to hype the other show without blatantly coming out and saying "watch this". Of course this is only good if i dont hear Cole screaming "OMG who's it gonna be watch RAW on moday to find out!!!"
I'm going to guess that Hogan is could jump to Raw. It has to be someone who's in the main event most of the time. The only problem is that there's hardly anyone on Raw that's a threat to him. Also, Hogan didn't appear to like Bischoff judging from last week.
Also I like Mysterio being elevated but I still probably would had him in a feud with either Tajiri or Noble.

I gotta go with tomvejada on this one, as Bischoff will bring Hogan into Raw next week. Then on Smackdown, Edge can do an interview talking about how Hogan made a mistake and how disappointed he is with his idol Hulk. Edge will meanwhile try different partners to take the titles from Team Canada (Cena, Orton, etc.) with no success. Edge will then plead for Hogan to come back on Smackdown. Hogan will agree, only if Steph will book an eight-man elimination match at Summerslam between Hogan/Edge/Cena/Orton and Team Canada (Storm/Christian/Test/Jericho). At Summerslam, it comes down to Hogan vs. Jericho, and Edge comes back in and spears Hogan leading to the TC victory. Then you can pencil in Hogan vs. Edge at Unforgiven.
Man, my head hurts, and I apologize for the EVVIIILLL fantasy booking.

Okay I don't want to sound like I'm pushing the panic/They are going to screw this up already button yet. But I am getting a little concerned about people jumping every show. If every show someone's jumping it will become meaningless in a months time. If you do this right a jump even from a mid-carder could be a huge shot in the arm for the wrestler/program, but it will mean nothing if there is a half-dozen jumps every month. Plus I don't want to keep a score card for every show.
I'm also worried for the WWE.com webmaster to is responsible for the Smackdown and Raw homepage going postal because he has to delete and add superstars continuously. Oh and how about the poor guy who does the opening video for the TV shows having to delete/add on superstars. I still see some Trish on the Smackdown opening (lol)

I think initially this is just the mechanism they've decided to use to reshuffle the rosters. So I would expect that these changes will be made quickly. I think once they have everybody where they want them, the jumps will stop for a while. But for right now, I think they know exactly who they want where, and will move people around each show until they get there.
I tend to agree with all of this. Don and/or Mike mentioned something about how AJ was "much more confident" when Cage wasn't around. Subtle portent, or random blather? Oh, also: BEST LINE OF THE NIGHT: Matt Morgan:
