Every now and then new logos are welcomed and the WWE is entering a new era, so new logos for the brand split makes sense.
But holy moly, does that RAW logo look bad. And you know why it looks bad. That “W” is basically the letter “M” upside down. Why? I don’t get it.
Smackdown isn’t great either. They’re calling it “Smackdown Live” going forward and I always viewed it as a blue-dominated logo. Yet looking at the logo, there is more white and gray than blue. Not that good.
But it’s minor and hoping that maybe in time I will get used to it. Well, not that RAW logo. That one still stinks.
This is big news for WWE as they are going back to their old ways with a new twist. Starting July 19, SmackDown will be live on Tuesdays. In addition to that, there will be a brand split and a draft will determine the new rosters.
The idea makes sense for the WWE as they have more talent and they need to get every talent some quality TV time. Also, going live would be great to give both shows a feel of equal footing. SmackDown has always felt as the lesser show since it was taped and all the big storyline moments tend to be saved for Raw.
Now with this change, here are some thoughts.
