I'm gonna be biased as hell and say RAW. they had my two favorite Sasha and Charlotte in a great feud putting on amazing matches.

Smackdown was the overall better show I do admit that. but I cared about RAW more so it's my pick.

My opinion was Smackdown Live was the better show then I asked for opinions right at the bottom of my post so I'm not expecting Raw to be bashed to hell by everyone.
Nothing has crawled up there, I just found the skewed nature of your OP funny is all.

For the record, I thought Smackdown was better during that time also. It's just weird to ask a question about which brand people preferred with such a heavily biased first question

My opinion is not the question lol that is an example of why I thought Smackdown was the better show in a sense to avoid a random flame war.

I asked which brand was better in your opinion whether it was Raw or SD that's it.

Whether or not your opinion was the question, your opinion still affected the question heavily. You list a bunch of Smackdown people and even include a note that JBL was hilarious on commentary (each to their own I suppose. I always found him unbearable).

You then only list a few of people from RAW and even include negative comments about some of them.

If you can't see how you are attempting to lead people to say Smackdown was better (ie to agree with you), then I don't really know what else to say.

If you seriously think I'm misleading anyone here then I don't know what to say either, Did you read Tyrion's post? That is an opinion regardless whether he thinks it's objective or not which is what i'm actually expecting.

If I didn't give out mine then what would be the point of my question in the first place if I had no input?

Don't expect me to beat around the bush to suit someone else's taste.

I never said that you were misleading anyone. I said that the way you presented the question originally heavily leads people towards Smackdown being better. You've never heard of being objective when gathering data or opinions?

What does Tyrion's post have to do with anything? He didn't start the thread. Tyrion was just answering a question, whereas you were posing the question but heavily favouring one over the other. Talking up how great one was but shitting over the other option

Re: Which brand was better(Raw/Smackdown) July 2016-April 2017

Smackdown for me, although neither show has been on fire I think Smackdown shows glimmers of more interesting potential for the future with KO being the anti hero that hopefully finally will dispatch Shane McMahon from our TV screens.
Some fresher talents that until recently have had to sit on their talent are starting to get some better exposure on Smackdown like Apollo Crews, Andrade and teased Ali and Buddy Murphy.
Daniel Bryan is putting in some fine performances also.

Neither show are must see but I enjoy some aspects of the direction Smackdown are heading whereas RAW is 90% unbearable to watch every week it seems.

Smackdown was the consistently better show. I pretty much stopped watching SD for good after Wrestlemania that year though.
