    There was a time where people preferred Smackdown over Raw.
    Had better exclusive PPVs, too.

    Remember Smackdown's Judgment Day and Vengeance in 2003. Quality.

    Their match at Vengeance in 2003 was so good. A 20 minute opener. What a treat.

    It was watchable at the start of the brand split, before the long-term effects of the brand split took hold i.e. making and keeping Smackdown weak so Raw was as strong as possible.
    Personally I enjoyed Smackdown till 2009. After that it started going downhill for me.

    Funnily enough thats when I stopped following.

    Mainly because I didnt appreciate what WWE was (finally realised it was 'fake')

    And amongst my school peers it wasnt a cool thing to do... Lucky I was hardly called a sado.

    Nowadays I know its fake and its not a guy trying to punch someone in the face but its re-enactment, whilst entertaining with everything else, "sports entertainment"

    I watched WWE from 1999 until 2007, then stopped until about 2012. Not sure why I got back into it tbh.

    I always had a sneaky suspicion that WWE was fake and that suspicion was confirmed when I read all the spoilers and the dirt sheets.

    I watched it till 2010 because of the Undertaker but then he was gone so I felt no reason to watch Smackdown any more.

    Started watching WWE again when the Rock came back to host Wrestlemania. The RAW after that Wrestlemania really was the one that got me stuck into WWE when the Wrestlemania match between Cena and the Rock was booked.

    Check out this recent promo from Reigns. It was the most cringe worthy promo I've ever heard. The guy is so bad on the mic. I was embarrassed for him.

    Doesn't surprise me. He was reportedly really unhappy with how Reigns came across in that promo he did from his hospital bed.
