Oh yeah Miz and the IC title has for sure been a major factor too, I care more for it then any title on RAW.

Re: A fantastic video on the RAW vs Smackdown Live debate

Why is there even a debate? I think it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that SDL is the vastly superior show. I still don't understand how Raw can have talent like Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Sami Zayn, Cesaro, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Charlotte, etc. and still manage to make a really bad show every week.

Hopefully RAW starts to catch up once they get a bit healthier, once the CW division settles in, and once they figure out how to book more than one women's feud(it appears they are starting to with Sasha/Nia).
So one guy can derail everything? Balor wasn't even a top name like The Rock or something before getting hurt.

A guy who just debuted and gets hurt can set you back for months? That just shows a huge lack of talent and creativity on their part to not be able to come up with a backup plan.

Not gonna disagree with that, but they clearly had a plan in place with Balor as "the guy", and he was out the day after winning the title. After that it was just Reigns as the only credible babyface. They really had no choice but to pull the trigger on the HHH/Rollins stuff, and their stubbornness with saving that match for WM has lead to a shit-ton of filler.

They could have just gotten it out of the way, but they didn't, and the product as a whole has suffered.

It is funny though that one little decision - deciding to book Owens as a credible main eventer - would make the product seem a whole hell of a lot better right now; even with the injury and even with Rollins living in filler-land. Instead it's the same shit, with them waiting to do anything noteworthy until WM season.

Kind of breaks the 4th wall to see the dude talking normally and frankly.

Agree with basically everything though.

Re: A fantastic video on the RAW vs. SmackDown Live debate

I stopped watching SD when that lil chin freaked became the focus of the show and have stopped watching Raw for the last month. When both shows start taking themselves and their talents seriously, I'll tune in.

Saying SD is better than Raw is like saying a kick in the testicles is ever so slightly better than a knee to the good old testes.

Re: A fantastic video on the RAW vs. SmackDown Live debate

His videos are gold, especially when he goes full savage on TJ Perkins stupid gaming gimmick.

And how everything on raw is for "moments", it's spot on, did you hear how many times in WM the announcers declare every 5 minutes to be a "Wrestlemania Moment", no! You can't just declare something to be a moment because you want it to be, there's no such thing as a natural moment because when there is one WWE wouldn't of planned it, and then they will squash it out.

this is one of the few times I've seen his vids on here, maybe in someones signature/tag.
