On the heels of last week’s blockbuster announcement, the WWE Universe is still buzzing over the imminent brand extension. Shane McMahon would confirm the rumors on this past Monday Night Raw stating, “there will be unique superstars from both Raw and SmackDown” setting the internet ablaze. Magazine and sports websites – among them Forbes, FOX Sports, and Inquisitr – posted “mock” drafts to both the delight and chagrin of wrestling fans. As Keeping It Real Sports joins the fray, we want to offer our predicted brand extension with a few twists.

Earlier this morning, WWE formally announced on its Twitter page:

“BREAKING NEWS: @WWE #SmackDown is going LIVE on Tuesday nights on @USA_Network, starting July 19!”

In a move that will put smiles on even the most critical faces of wrestling fans, the company has finally decided to ditch its weekly pre-taped ritual for live airings every Tuesday night. While stunning, it’s a decision that the WWE Universe has clamored for in hopes that the program will no longer be labeled as the “B Show” to Monday Night Raw. Potentially, this will be the latest and greatest shakeup for SmackDown since moving to the USA Network earlier in the year.
