Is Smackdown more important from WWE's point of view?

Right now, their priming Sheamus to be the next big draw. Team Hell No is feature primarily on Smackdown. Plus, they have the power to add or subtract boos. So in a sense, they decide who goes over and who flops (or they hope they do). Plus, Monday from 8 - 11 isn't exactly a child's prime time, where as 8 - 10 on Friday night is pretty good for your average kid. Does anyone else see Smackdown as the cash cow, and Raw as the story mover and more for the older audience?

Re: Is Smackdown more important from WWE's point of view?

what the hell are you talking about? No. Smackdown right now is almost like FCW, getting training for when you actually get to the real deal, which is Raw. Also all the superstars get 'over' on Raw, cause despite how much someone might get pushed on SD, people barely watch it, maybe the replay on Raw but yeah.

Not Removing Until:

John Cena faces Undertaker at Wrestlemania [ ]

Sheamus and Cm Punk are the 2 World Champions [X] -Wrestlemania 28

John Morrison wins World Title [ ]

John Cena losses cleanly [X]- Wrestlemania 28 Rock Beats John Cena


John Cena turns heel [ ]

Shawn Michaels returns for One More Match[ ]

Daniel Bryan beats a Main Eventer cleanly [ ]

Is this a piss take?


Yeah I also think Extreme Rules is more important that Wrestlemania 'cause Lesnar was on it that one year.

You can't be serious OP.

WWE sees Smackdown as nothing more than a trash.

When was the last time the show did anything relevant?

Re: Is Smackdown more important from WWE's point of view?

ive always viewed smackdown as second tier wwe programming, you take what you get with it. you have a couple big stars on it and alot of people who arent over, or just need attention to get over and then move to Raw, its sort of like a farm system for the WWE, honestly I watch SD more as i cannot stay up and watch raw in canada as it is on until 115 am and i have a job, i enjoy the programming but I do not see it as top talent or anything special.

Hello, Will you be my friend??

Re: Is Smackdown more important from WWE's point of view?

Lately, SmackDown has been better than Raw.

NOT REMOVING UNTIL:
  • [ ] Wade Barrett wins the world title or the WWE title
  • [ ] Damien Sandow wins a title
  • [ ] R-Truth turns heel again
  • [ ] Cody Rhodes and Goldust finally have their feud
  • [ ] The Usos lose the tag titles

It's more of a filler show imo, anything that's good on smackdown is on RAW usually, the rest is pretty pointless.

You gotta be kidding me, cash cow? SmackDown is less relevant than ever before. It's essentially ECW at this point.
