Smackdown was the shit back in 2009. Honestly, SD 2009 felt like SD 2002 for me. Great wrestling ever week and the undercard was featured prominently. The World Title feud with Hardy and Punk was the best feud of the year. Not only did SD focus a lot of its energy on the World Title, the IC title was just as important. Jericho/Mysterio worked their butts off to bring credibility back to the title. And it didn't end there. Like I said, the undercard really shined that year and it's largely in part due to the mesh of undercard vs main event guys. Edge vs Morrisson easily comes to mind.
RAW, on the other hand sucked! After Mania, RAW went to the dogs. Storylines sucked, wrestling sucked. Just terrible. The guest hosts didn't help either.
ECW, I have always been a fan of. Consistently good wrestling show. I was probably one of the few who were pissed off that NXT was replacing it. I knew NXT was going to be a flash in the pan kind of thing and more importantly the disbanding of ECW led to a lot of young guys just floating around the main roster doing nothing.
