    - There has been concern expressed within WWE this past week regarding SmackDown live event business. When WWE did the Draft after Edge retired, the idea was that SmackDown had to be made strong enough that it could still draw on the road. It's been noted that Orton, Christian and Sheamus aren't doing good business on top and WWE went in with the idea that Orton would be strong enough to carry the brand, as far as the business side of things go. All of this likely has to do with this weekend's SmackDown shows being canceled and moved to September.
    I still think John Cena should have come over here.

    I think Smackdown LOST too many good young wrestlers to RAW like Ziggler, Kingston, Mcintyre, Swagger plus Rey Mysterio and Big Show.


    Daniel Bryan, Mark Henry, Khali, Ted Dibiase are nothing spectacular. Orton and Sheamus are the only wrestlers who are exciting.......

    If they look at their roster depth they will find their problem.

    I don't think even Cena would save this lackluster roster.

    If they would have just given Smackdown one more decent face like Mysterio they would be fine. Smackdown has always been the place for up and coming talent but they have many more high potential guys than normal with Jinder, Sin Cara, Bryan, The Corre, Jackson, and Rhodes they have plenty of talent, they just have to build them up the right way. One way of doing that is by having them feud with guys like Mysterio who should have stayed on Smackdown, Christian, and Orton.

    John Cena is lackluster too.

    What or who do you think could help them out besides bringing Rey back like AllPro said?

    Smackdown is really heel heavy, and a lot of the talent are still developing in to bigger stars (Cody Rhodes, Sheamus). The only people who they have whom they can call main eventers are pretty much just Randy Orton and Christian, with Christian being a newly turned heel. Kids and casual audiences don't really go to shows to see bad guys fight, they want to see their heroes (Rey Mysterio, John Cena, etc.), if the WWE wants business, they should either heavily push one of their midcard faces or draft a top face from Raw over to Smackdown. Either way though, I think this fresh feud between Christian and Orton seem to be drawing interest, it's drawing mine at least and it's the best thing going on in the WWE right now.

    That's about the only one I can think of.

    That would be good and I don't think they should have drafted Zilggler or Kofi over there.
