WWE Brand Split Results

WWE Brand Split Results

The time has finally happened for the day we have all being waiting months for. The Brand Split has finally happened, RAW and SmackDown are now once again individual rosters. With Shane and Stephanie acting as the Commissioners of SmackDown and RAW respectively, they were under instruction from their father. Mr McMahon made it clear that they will need to appoint General Managers to assume the day-to-day business. This past week on RAW, the General Managers were revealed to be none other than Mick Foley for RAW and Daniel Bryan for SmackDown. But on the first edition of SmackDown Live, we were finally given some insight into which superstars will be allocated to each show. The table showing the Brand Split outcome for each show is shown below;

What is certainly interesting to note, SmackDown only gained two out of the five championships available. But SmackDown also gained four NXT Superstars where RAW only received two. There are some interesting choices produced from this, especially considering the high number of factions now on the RAW Brand. Once Battleground has being concluded this coming Sunday, only time will tell how this new era under the leadership of the beard plays out…

Do you like who ended up where in the Brand Split? We’d love to know what you think!
