- Above is the trailer for a new "Timeline: History of WWE - 2007" DVD from Kayfabe Commentaries, featuring special guest Hornswoggle. He discusses CM Punk, saying Punk is the hardest person to be friends with, the Vince McMahon exploding limousine angle, the Hair vs. Hair angle with Donald Trump, the Chris Benoit tragedy and more.
"It's working extremely well, it's working exactly like we thought it would," McMahon said. "There is some crossover, which is what we wanted. But at the same time, we're introducing new viewers."
"You have fresh talent coming from one brand to the next," McMahon added. "So in essence, if you haven't seen a Roman Reigns on SmackDown, then when he does - if and when he does - then that's really a big thing. It freshens up talent, and it gives us a much longer range in terms of the use of those talents and the IP that goes with them.
McMahon also noted that the brand extension allows them to run more live events, and create new stars.
"If you have only one show, or two shows with the same talent, it's difficult to create new stars because the tendency is to keep the larger talent on top all the time. So it allows other stars to climb the ladder of success."
