With the 2023 WWE Draft once again producing exclusive rosters for the RAW and SmackDown brands, the rumour mill is swirling with the suggestion that Triple H is interested in reinstating brand exclusive premium live events.
The 2023 WWE Draft began last night on the April 28th edition of Friday Night SmackDown and will continue on the May 1st episode of Monday Night RAW as part of WWE’s re-establishment of the brand split over the coming week. Over the past few months, the brand split was almost entirely forgotten with many WWE Superstars switching freely between RAW and SmackDown.
Following Triple H’s big announcement on RAW last week, the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship will once more be featured on one show, whilst the new WWE World Heavyweight Title shall appear on the other, as Triple H wants to reinstate the brand divide.
Further to this, WWE is apparently considering reintroducing brand exclusive premium live events, alongside the renewed brand split, and the change has been heavily discussed internally, according to WRKD Wrestling.
WWE had previously delivered brand exclusive premium live events, initially from June 2003 through February 2007, and again from 2016 until February 2018, with WWE frequently presenting an event every two weeks.
