or years, there's been competition with the WWE brands Smackdown and Raw. Things have started to heat up now with the sibling rivalry between Shane and Stephanie McMahon. With last night draft, splitting Superstars between the two shows, things are about to get interesting.
With three hours to fill, Raw got the privilege of having extra picks in the draft. Raw may have walked out the clear winner with more Superstars, some of which include big time names such as Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.
Yet, Smackdown could prove to be the better show and maybe just be Raw when it comes to ratings.
Daniel Bryan is GM
Daniel Bryan is one of the most popular Superstars of the last 5 years. With his underdog character and Yes Yes Yes catchphrase, he quickly became loved by fans. When he announced his retirement in February, fans thought they'd never seen him on television again. But Shane McMahon stunned the WWE Universe when he announced Bryan would be Smackdown's new GM. Bryan's popularity along with his feud against Stephanie McMahon should help Smackdown in it's battle against Raw.
During the Draft, 6 Superstars from NXT were chosen. While Raw got top draws such as Finn Balor and Nia Jax. Smackdown got a majority of the NXT talent with stars such as Alexa Bliss, Carmella, Mojo Rawley, and the tag team American Alpha. With these NXT Superstars being drafted to Smackdown, they'll have a chance to shine unlike on Raw, where they'll get lost in the shuffle.
Live on Tuesday Nights
For years, Smackdown was shown on Thursday and Friday nights, meaning viewers had to wait to see what was going to happen. Since Smackdown taped their shows on Tuesdays, fans would read spoilers and decide if they'd tune in or not. But now that Smackdown is going to air live on Tuesday, fans will now have that element of excitement that they get from watching Raw. As we all know with WWE, anything can happen so expect Smackdown to throw out a few surprises.
Eclectic Group of Superstars
While Raw may have the bigger Superstars such as Lesnar, Reigns, and Rollins. Smackdown also faired well with their picks. John Cena, Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, and Dolph Ziggler are just a few of the faces you'll see main eventing on Tuesday nights. These Superstars are widely popular with fans so expect their fanbases to be tuning in to see their favs in action.
The Authority has been the main focus of Raw the past 3 years with Stephanie and Triple H running things their way. Fans have grown tired of this neverending saga and have began tuning out Raw. With Smackdown, they'll be no Authority trying to screw over Superstars. Instead, you'll find fairness from the GM along with great storytelling and awesome matches.
