Except he wasn't.

The gates don't lie, Raw did better then Smackdown....hell the only time Smackdown did better was in 2003 and that was mainly because Triple H took time off when it came to House shows due to a torn gorn.

People tend to forget why Raw had a weaker roster in the first place, because Smackdown didn't have any top draws.....but had a ton of supporting players. Taker wasn't a draw in early 2000's, Angle has never been a draw, Lesnar has never been a draw and don't get me started on Benoit and Eddie. After The Rock left to film the Rundown, Triple H was the biggest star they had and if Brock was bigger they would have put him on Raw alone as the top guy instead of protecting him with a strong supporting cast on Smackdown.

I think Pat Patterson said it best when he said HHH needs to step back and stop hogging all the spotlight.

HHH is truly the ULTIMATE OPPORTUNIST!

It was, but that is subjective and besides the point.

Raw's houseshows did better then Smackdown when it came to drawing, and that is mainly due to Triple H.

Are you sure Russo had that much power backstage to where he said who was the top guy? He was head writer, not head booker. Don't the bookers pick who is the guy, while the writer write the story lines for the guys the bookers choose?

RAW was also a household brand at that point and was known for carrying names such as Shawn Micheals, The Rock, The Undertaker, & Stone Cold Steve Austin.
