WWE made the decision to have a brand split within the last few weeks. SmackDown going live on Tuesday nights on the USA Network has been talked about for a while now.
Vince McMahon is reportedly ‘pumped up” about the brand split as he has several ideas for SmackDown. The draft will take place on the July 11th episode of RAW in Detroit. It’s said that many talents have no idea which brand they will end up on.
WWE will be calling up more stars from NXT to help fill the two main rosters. Also, WWE plans to go after NJPW and Mexico talents.
The Intercontinental Title is expected to be on RAW while the United States Title will be on SmackDown. The WWE Tag Team Titles will likely be on both shows. There are people within WWE that are under the impression that the Women’s division will be exclusive to one show.
There is a lot of talk of having one WWE Title, and WWE will use that champion on both shows.
