SmackDown Live needs to shake up the product this week
SmackDown Live needs to shake up the product this week

Not long ago, we learned that SmackDown Live had scored the lowest ratings in the history of the brand this past week. This is a shame because of how loaded the roster is. What this means is that WWE has not been able to utilize the talent in a manner that gets fans invested. How do they get the viewership to soar again?

A surprise or two could certainly help in this regard. In this article, I will suggest a few of them for your reading pleasure. Let me know if you agree or disagree with the following list.

Most agree that SmackDown Live is the superior show over the red brand. And yet, the ratings somehow do not reflect this at all.

Why do you think this is the reason, readers?


#5 Shane McMahon and The Miz start having tensions

This is the only way to make the alliance interesting

Do I want Shane McMahon and The Miz to split up already? The answer is no. Why do I want them to tease internal tensions then, in that case?

Teams like their Elimination Chamber opponents, The Usos, can tell fantastic stories in the ring because they're that good. Shane McMahon and The Miz are rooted a lot more in the sports entertainment aspect of the business and while they are still hot for the time being, I feel like they're a one trick pony.

Most experts are speculating that we're in for a clash between Shane McMahon and The Miz for WrestleMania 35, and this tension can also help in that regard. The Usos can regain the Championships and actual teams like SAnitY and even The New Day can get screen time once again. The actual split can happen on the night after Elimination Chamber.
