    Trying to give them another chance...

    So I have watched both Raw and Smackdown the last couple of weeks trying to give WWE another chance to entertain me. I do this periodically because if it is good, I'll watch it.

    I won't be watching Raw... Let's just lay that to rest now. Terriblez...

    I did however find it amazing that Smackdown was entertaining to me. I think there is good chemistry on that roster right now and I was fairly entertained watching it.

    Basically that all is meant to open up the discussion... Am I the only one that thinks that Smackdown is the better of the 2 1/2 (Don't get me started on ECW) WWE brands???

    I never watch ECW, rarely watch Raw, but i will watch Smackdown if im not busy. I wont go out of my way to watch it, but its the only one i can watch without getting bored. So pretty much the same viewpoint from my side as yours.

    RAW has been hit and miss for the last year or so. They've had realyly shows like the KOTR one and a few others and also alot of dull ones.

    Smackdown has been shit ever since Edge drafted there. This year has been boring as fuck with the Edge/Taker fued. Atleast in the last couple of months we are seeing more guys like Kendrick getting pushed.

    ECW, I barely watch because of the timeslots ove here, but its a pretty good show. Most of the time its just 40 minutes of straigh wrestling matches with good wrestlers. Not bad.

    I barely watch wwe tv shows anymore, just RAW every now and then when it sounds interesting. I'd rather watch any of them than the crapfest of Impact though. Then again, I'd rather download indy and shizz matches than watch the wwe too.

    I think that smackdown is the best show mainly because of the roster, but raw has started to entertain me more especially with Chris Jericho's fantastic work as a heel which is literally carrying the company to achieve some decent storylines, the whole near return or the age of orton seems cool too and the kane / Mysterio feud, Im only taking much notice to this because I like the role kane is in at the moment >.>

    When theres no enemies,

    and in my ignorance,
    I'll be a slave and sycophant!"

    Loving Haas' new gimmick (partly because he can actually imitate other wrestlers quite well) - especially when he did the perfect tribute...and of course glamarella

    SmackDown is absolutely brilliant at the minute, the roster and storylines are just clicking, and it's easily been the most consistent show quality-wise, all year.

    ECW has improved ten-fold since the draft, and has tons of possibilities with the new talent there.

    Raw is hit and miss most weeks. The comedy sketches with Marella and Hass are spot on, but the wrestling leaves something to be desired.

    Your absolutely spot on there, but the only flaw I reckon is on SD where Vladimir Kozlov is in the title picture, what about MVP or shelton benjamin?

    I understand why Koslov is there, I don't understand why MVP isn't.

    I think Kozlov would suit a role in ECW, feuding with Hardy & henry.

    Agreed PrOxy, but double double E have put him where he is, and I honestly think he's playing his role well.

    It would help if he had a translator like Khali.

    I still like Raw...I rarely watch ECW anymore and at one point I was not watching Smackdown but then the first one after the draft this year I liked and I loved it...so I kept watching and watching...But now its over on Mynetwork TV which I don't get so now I don't see the best of the 3 which makes me mad.

    Re: Trying to give them another chance...

    I haven't watched more than 5 minutes of any wrestling program since early August. It's not that I'm so much more busy, I'm just so much less-interested. I have to literally have nothing else to do on a Monday night before I'll even consider turning to RAW. There's a part of me that wants to give WWE another chance, but just about every time I've tried to over the years, it ends with a big let down.

    I watch wrestling in stints, a few months at a time until I get bored with it. I guess you could say I'm in between stints right now...
