Maybe they're setting up an angle where the Women's division moves exclusively to Smackdown (like the Cruiserweights). Bischoff downgrades the level of women's wrestling on Raw and then Stephanie calls him out on his sexism and signs all the women wrestlers to Smackdown (Trish, Molly, Ivory, Jazz, Victoria, Lita, Jacquline and Nidia). Bischoff can counter by saying Raw is home to the Divas (Stacy, Torrie, Dawn Marie, Terri, other WWE non-wrestling "Superstars"). I can only think with the recent success of Fit Finley's booking and the great heel work by Molly that they wouldn't overtly try to kill off the division, but hey they've done such a great job booking the last eighteen months they must have a masterplan, right?

Good question, but if they did I wouldn't even BOTHER watching RAW, EVER. Which is one thing that makes me think they will not make the switch, at least not a total one. Trish could possibly head to Smackdown after the prolongated feud with Molly to take on Nidia or Victoria on the non-live show, which is what they might be thinking to help out those women who need to develop. Trish could either take the title with her or leave it for Molly to defend on RAW against the likes of Jazz, who hopefully will be back by this time next month. But personally I don't see an entire switch in the making.

Originally posted by count olafI wonder if Smackdown has the space to accomodate both the cruisers and the women.
Oh my gosh does that mean we can't see the weekly appearance of Mark Henry/D-von/Rikishi... LOL
I don't want to jinx it. But I swear if Trish goes over to Smackdown there will be no reason for me to watch Raw. I swear right now Trish and RVD are my only can't miss on RAW. I like others (ie Bookdust) but as Can't miss those are the only two. And waiting around 2 hours to see RVD get squished by Big show is not worth it. To be honest if they are going to use Trish in a non-wrestling/ degrading role, I will stop watching Raw anyways.
Oh please bring the talented women to SD and let Raw have the Smut matches, the over the hill gang, camera hogs, the tired played anti-americans and hosses.

Hey Shapiro, where did you get those PPV numbers? Not doubting the credibility, but would love to see the comparison of PPV numbers over the past five years or so and didn't know that data was so readily available.
