WWE 2016 Split: Raw vs Smackdown!

Recommended Posts

ESPN: Its not everyday that a company like the WWE makes a huge change. But very soon that will be changing. Most recently this week WWE Chairman Vince McMahon announced that the company would be reviving the brand split that created numerous stars like John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Batista, Randy Orton, and numerous others. With the lack of competition outside of its own company Vince wanted someone to compete with and who better than himself? But we take you to a replay of the WWE chairmans huge announcement from Raw and Smackdown just a few days ago!







McMahon: Ladies and Gentlemen! Tonight you all will be welcomed into history as I will be changing the way the WWE works. No longer will you be seeing everyone on both Raw and Smackdown. I will be shaking this company up and I will be introducing a new Brand Split. The entire roster will be included in this draft including Superstars who are currently injured. This draft will be taking place only on the WWE Network, which of course you can get for only $9.99 a month! It will be taking place this Saturday night at 10pm EST! The next episode of Raw and SD you will be watching will be the first shows with the brand split! As for who will be running the shows that will be left to my son Shane and my Daughter Stephanie. Shane will be taking over Smackdown and Stephanie will be taking Raw. Both of them will need to first find themselves a General Manager to run the shows also.



Rules For the 2016 WWE Draft:



1. All active wrestlers on the roster will be drafted until there is no one left.

2. All tag teams will be taken together. The Wyatt Family will be drafted separate. The GM can choose to only take 1 member of a tag team

3. Tag teams count as 1 pick not 2.

<p>My apologies guys for the spelling mistakes and the Nakamura issue on Raw. Since my laptop has crappy Wordpad instead of Word I dont get a spell or grammar check. Than and scrolling screws up the alignment on my text boxes as I use paint since its the easiest method.</p><p> </p><p>

Ill have to do a better job of proof reading and checking everything first.</p>
