Can we just admit this show is worse than Raw? The Shane/Bryan bullshit has been going on forever with no end in sight. The Dolph shit makes no fucking sense. This show is ungodly boring most weeks too on top of everything else.

SD has been fucking shit, I'd rather watch 3 hours of RAW than half of SD. Only the tag division is worth giving a shit, Kevin/Zayn and this Shane and Bryan storyline has been going for too fucking long not even Jinder's title reign felt this boring.

They really need to move Ryan Ward back to SmackDown. Raw has his fingerprints all over it and its been a good show since they moved him there.

I don't even bother watching the Youtube videos anymore. They really should've stuck with making Owens and Zayne more credible but they botched.

>Can we just admit this show is worse than Raw?

For me, the show stopped being great a year ago, almost today, after Elimination Chamber and RAW is usually consistently better, or at least doesn't hit the lows SD has.

That's why you watch MMC and 205 Live instead.

MMC = Fun
205 Live = Good wrestling and storylines

SD has neither

I wish they would make Smackdown the 'professional' version of NXT, a tighter show with better quality weekly matches and less of a focus on extended storyline crap and boring promos for upcoming PPVs, and leave all the thespian wank and shilling to 3 hour RAWs.

How long is Smackdown now? Two hours? Cut it down to an hour and give the TV network some new Diva reality show in exchange if they want to whinge.

nah, raw is still the shittier turd between the two. SD has gotten shittier over time just like raw, but raw is still worse. too much time, throwaway feuds, mailed in matches, poochie, an absentee top champ that is about to drop it to an even worse option i just mentioned, the female version of said top champ getting ready to show up for 4-6 PPVs a year at best, etc..

There is nothing that makes me want to watch SD. At least RAW has Braun and Elias. Maybe the Bludgeon Brothers for SD, but WWE have shown time and time again they cannot book tag team wrestling, especially over the long term. AJ is champ but stuck in this dire Shane/Bryan/Owens/Zayn angle, Nakamura is spinning his wheels until Mania, Orton/Roode the most boring men having a feud, Rusev stuck in midcard purgatory.

Superstar Shakeup and relegating Talking Smack to just after Smackdown PPVs hurt it immensely.

>How long is Smackdown now? Two hours? Cut it down to an hour and give the TV network some new Diva reality show in exchange if they want to whinge.

Still two hours but I don’t think USA would go for it and decrease its ad revenue. Also as Dave had talked about, traditionally WWE reality shows like Tough Enoigh haven’t done well ratings wise on USA.

Smackdown was a good show, then Talking Smack got axed, the Superstar Shakeup happened, and good old Road Dogg showed up to really take a shit on things.

Imagine telling someone 5 years ago that Kevin Steen, AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode would all be on the same weekly TV show and it would be the most unwatchable 2 hours on television every week.

I mean Raw isn't much better and quite honestly WWE in general for me has completely missable TV for months but at least Raw has that one or two nuggets of genuinely entertaining stuff.

After telling them that they would respond "WWE, right?", you would nod your head and then they would say "Makes sense". It wouldn't be that mind-blowing that WWE would squander talent to someone in 2013.

Yeah, and ever since he became head writer and replaced the guy who used to write NXT during its golden age Smackdown has been absolutely terrible.
>Jinder was made champ for months
>Becky went from Smackdown's #1 female to some geek who does nothing every episode
>Randy is even more boring than usual
>Smackdown's female division became a neverending slog of multiwoman matches without meaning
>Talking Smack took DBry away and then got cancelled (this was slightly before Road Dogg took over)
>Babyface GMs are now feuding instead of giving fans what they want

Basically, Smackdown went from a very down-to-earth show meant to counter RAW and WWE's "appeal to everyone at once" philosophy to RAW but with lesser talent. Ryan Ward made Smackdown into a main roster NXT, and Vince hated it so much he let Road Dogg takeover and turn it in generic garbage.

Also I want to mention that at times Smackdown had ridiculous elements and shoot elements, like your standard indie show. Both of those vanished after Road Dogg took over. No more Nattie shooting on Nikki, no more DBry openly trashing WWE on air, no more Wyatts using literal supernatural elements, no more CRUSSIX, no more fun, nothing.

Considering Road Dogg and his twitter rants that he likes to go on about his critics and stupid tweets like "Wins and Losses dont matter", Its very easy to point the finger at him for this mess

If you watch both shows its just too much wrestling. 5 hours in 2 days is too much for most mortals.

Especially when the show is so predictable and they really dont seem to have a goal or direction with anyone. Ziggler has had multiple opportunities to have good story arcs but they just forget it a few weeks later and have him jobbing in the midcard again or give him his millionth midcard title shot.

Storylines and feuds just seem thrown together. For example Rooo, Orton and now Jinder. We have Baron Corbin just thrown into random feuds to just be an extra guy and has no direction whatsoever. Baron showed a heap of potential when he left NXT now I just cant give a shit about anything to do with him.

Promos are extemely scripted and seem robotic for example Benjamin and Gable

Yet we have a lot of good guys and girls doing jack shit. Ziggler, Becky, Baron Corbin, Randy, Russev and Nakamura. Charlotte beating the female job squad each week can apply here too.

Theyve also dropped the ball on Fashion Police, Tye Dillinger, Mojo (he did start to show something at one stage)

I dont know the answer as I dont know how it all works backstage but something needs to change. Something needs to change with both shows actually.

I think part of the problem is that so many guys are spinning their wheels until Fastlane is over with so they can start their Mania builds, despite Fastlane being utterly pointless. Everyone and their dog knows Styles is retaining in the Fatal 5 way, they could suddenly hire Omega and Okada and bring back the Rock and Stone Cold to add to the match and it wouldn't change the extremely obvious outcome in any way. Hopefully after Fastlane it will start to pick up.
