Now that Shane McMahon is back and WWE is working another power struggle angle, there's been talk going around of yet another brand split. If it happens, Sasha Banks knows where she wants to go:
Well, SmackDown does have the better commentary team...
This may not matter in the end, considering the brand extension didn't work the last time they tried it and the roster was much deeper at that time. They could always call up plenty of talent from NXT but that raises the question of what exactly becomes of the developmental promotion, if anything.
There's already a sense of competition within the company between WWE and NXT. Attempting to create that with Raw and SmackDown sounds good in theory but, as we've seen, doesn't really work in practice, or at least it hasn't before.
