Yeah it's not that bad it's just not that good either. Nothing stands out about the women's division anymore, when Charlotte, Becky and Sasha hit the main roster off the back of some very well received NXT matches there was a lot of buzz. Trouble is with buzz it quickly fades and that's exactly what has happened.

The brand split has hurt the ladies division, the Smackdown division is awful, I skip all their matches. Putting Charlotte there just feels like throwing a big fish in a small pond. The Raw division has also suffered, Bayley has been a huge flop, the magic she had in NXT hasn't transitioned to the main roster. The loss of Charlotte has hurt the Raw division also and Alexa Bliss isn't in the same league as her.

I personally would do one of two things.

1 - Make the ladies exclusive to one brand so they can have one deeper roster of women providing more fresh options and better matches and feuds.

2 - Keep the women split on the brands but put all the time and energy into one brand, in other words put all the women worth watching on one brand and the rest can just become piss break TV on the other. For example move Charlotte and Becky and maybe Nattie and Camilla back to Raw and move Asuka up there too, send Bayley and Alisha Fox to Smackdown.

An exclusive show is probably the route they'll end up going, especially after the Mae Young Classic has finished.

I'd put the women on smackdown to count Raw's cruiserweights, and then treat both divisions with a lot more respect and a lot more structure, both on the shows and in storytelling and booking. I would also create a women's tag division, and unify the raw and smackdown women's titles.

I'd go the other route and put the Cruiserweights on Smackdown and the Women on Raw then the ladies tag titles could become a reality.

In reality the Cruisers only need one match a week, have it as the opening match on Smackdown like WCW used to do with Nitro. Guys like Neville can mix it up with the heavyweights as well.

Yah, actually I like that idea better too. Point being the brand split hurt the women's roster on all 3 brands and it's best to keep them together so they can continue to get better than then actually compete against the men's division for ratings, if only indirectly by way of measuring ratings during individual segments and timeslots.
