Will this current version of the brand split be coming to an end soon?

It has hardly been 3 years since WWE brought back the brand split and divided their main roster into two. The blue brand, SmackDown, was moved from Friday to air live on Tuesday nights with fresh faces and fresh feuds. In the first year of the brand split, we witnessed some exciting rivalries on SmackDown Live, with the feuds featuring Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles and John Cena topping the list.

In 2016, WWE announced that WWE Survivor Series will be the only night of the year where RAW and SmackDown Live will collide in head to head competition but Vince McMahon recently introduced the Wild Card rule which has effectively changed the narrative.

The same superstars are appearing on both the shows and it seems like 2015-16 all over again. In this article, I present 3 things WWE did to give the fans an indication that the brand split will end soon -


#3 SIX Wild Cards appear on RAW

Has Vince McMahon forgotten the rules that he made?

Vince McMahon had stated that any 4 superstars of either brand will be invited to the opposite brand under the Wild Card rule every week.

But, on this week's RAW episode, we had Roman Reigns, Lars Sullivan, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Charlotte Flair and Randy Orton - a total 6 Wild Cards on RAW. Also, the entire focus of both RAW and SmackDown Live is on the feud between Roman Reigns and Shane McMahon. Last week, eight SmackDown Live superstars had appeared on RAW.
