When did Smackdown become the 'B show'?
 
Now i'm not the biggest fan of raw right now but its clear smackdown is viewed of and treated the warm up/down to monday nights.

At what point in time do you guys think smackdown became so obviously the b show?

I remember watching it a few years ago with stars like batista and orton main eventing and thinking it was much better than raw.

Your views?

Smackdown was always the B-Show. It just wasn't as obvious.

Yeah it was. But they were on the A show too.

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that Batista and Undertaker's roles as the top babyfaces were inadequetly filled.

It pretty much always has been. Smackdown, even during the brand split, was always made to have it's balls chopped off when it was getting obviously better than RAW. Now, without the distinct brand separation, there is little reason to tune in. Nothing ever happens. I hope it's just in a funk while the creative team gets used to a third hour of RAW, but my gut tells me it's not lol.
