So the most recent Smackdown ratings on Fox have slid to the same or less than what they were drawing prior to the Fox move, so just a few weeks in it seems the big Fox move which was predicted to be a huge boost to viewership has made no difference at all.

Smackdown is currently the worst brand in WWE, it was rumoured that SD on Fox would be a more real sports based product with bigger stars and bigger matches, so far it's been the same old Vince McMahon inspired horribly scripted pantomime like formulaic show. Even the introductions of Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez were very short lived.

NXT has been as good as ever and Raw is at least trying to improve by being a bit more edgy and trying to get new talent over as top guys like Rusev and Aleister Black. There is still room for much improvement on Raw but I much prefer the red brand to Smackdown right now, the only thing that interests me on SD is the Wyatt/Bryan feud, the Roman/Corbin segments the past couple of weeks have been amongst the worst things I've seen in WWE all year.

The horrible booking has Vince stamped all over it, and now Prichard has taken over from Bischoff nothing will change as BP is a notorious Vince yes man and his booking has been responsible for some of the worst storylines in WWE over the past three decades.

Its clear Vince is too old and out of touch to control the creative input of the WWE product anymore and Fox cannot be happy with these ratings, the solution is simple - Vince should take a big step back from creative, focus on the XFL and remain the company figurehead when it comes to business meetings and public appearances and so forth, but the creative direction should be handled completely by Heyman on Raw and Smackdown should be given to Triple H who again should have complete control, the blue brand is now seen as the number one show in WWE and I think Hunter could turn it around.
As for NXT hopefully Triple H could still have time for some input but why not hand it over to Shawn Michaels and William Regal? Two people more than qualified who would have the same vision for NXT as Triple H.
