WWE Backlash 2016 Aftermath: Booking For The Future
Analyzing the booking possibilities for the future of Smackdown Live.
Richmond, Virginia was the host city for what turned out to be a successful, historic night for WWE's illegitimate stepchild to Raw, also known as the Smackdown brand. We witnessed the Blue Brands first exclusive pay-per-view event, which included title changes, new titles awarded and brand new titles awarded. We also witnessed some suspect booking, which could subsequently be the birth of a burial for one of the most talented, entertaining performers of the current era.
Considering the limited resources and lack of sufficient build time, WWE officials and creative powers actually put together and executed a quality event, that gave Smackdown a solid foundation to move forward on.
With that in mind, we now look forward to the immediate, as well as long-term future of the brand. Here're some ideas on how to book some of the superstars who were a part of last night's WWE Backlash.
