I think HBK needs to go to Smackdown and I think Big Show will be traded for him. He's the only logical guy to be traded to Raw. If not HBK than Jericho cause he deserves more than IC title shots. I want to see him feud with Cena, Eddie, and Angle. What trades do you think should be made?
Benoit goes back to Smackdown after losing a "Loser Leaves Raw" match to Flair or HHH. It's not a trade, but Benoit could go back now that he's no longer the champion. I dont want him to lose heat... eh, so maybe this doesn't work after all. Hmmm?
Depends on what he does after returning to SD. You can always get your heat back if you're booked properly.
It might be time for Jericho to head over to SD. Michaels needs to face Kane before he could move, I'd think, and maybe a Loser Leaves Raw match at the PPV could give Kane a much needed win over a "main eventer" and then give Sean a new platform from which to work.
Since the reason for his leaving Smackdown (Heyman as GM saying he'd never get a world title shot) no longer exists, Benoit could go back to Smackdown with the story of wanting to conquer the other half of the roster to win their title, that he never would have left if it weren't for Heyman, etc.

But he COULD'VE gotten a WWE Title shot at WrestleMania. He won the Rumble and could've gotten a shot no matter what Heyman said or did. Hell, they did a good month or so of build-up based on that fact alone.
They implied that he went to RAW because that show (and title) was superior to Smackdown.

Originally posted by Freeway420And why would Bischoff book Benoit in a Loser Leaves Raw Match? Benoit = Ratings.
Well Bischoff did throw The Rock out of the buliding on his 4th on screen appearence this year which led Rock to say ''Of all people you throw The Rock out of the buliding?...no wonder WCW went out of business''
Benoit only went after the WWE gold, because Flair said he could never beat a champion like HHH at the Rumble. So, Chris went after the title. I don't know if Heyman would be stupid enough to screw Benoit over when it automatically puts Smackdown as the main event for Wrestlemania XX. I could see him loading it against Benoit ie adding other wrestlers, making no DQ or special guest refrees, but he would never say "Screw the main event, I want to get back at Benoit." It would have been stupid.
I think Cena needs to go to Raw. Vince has censored the kid, because of UPN being a network and the FCC's witch hunt after bimbo Jackson's half-second Super Bowl show. I do think that HBK or HHH needs to head to Smackdown. Smackdown needs another huge star like them to help give their main event some spice.
I don't see anything happening. And with Teddy Long coming out to promote the Big Show himself, I highly doubt this ends with a HBK-Big Show trade. Get real.
As for HBK, he's not likely to go anywhere. One, there's the easy feud with Kane. Two, the plan is still for Garrison Cade to return as H-B-Cade - hence, why he's been off air for several months.
I'd rather see small moves, if anything. Like move Lawler to Smackdown and give him his own interview segment - "The King's Court" or something. Then replace him on RAW with Cyrus (who's out of wrestling now, but I bet he'd go to WWE if it was offered) or even Joel Gertner (who is an effective face or heel). Cyrus knows more about actual wrestling though.
PPV posters don't mean a thing when it comes to predicting what happens on those shows. Exhibit A: "Watch The Big Show climb over seven other superstars to become King of the Ring (1999)". Show was a total non-factor. Exhibit B:
