I think you managed to hit the nail right on the head there, BDL. I think I could stand Triple H being number one heel on RAW if I also had an alternative to watching him all the way through the show. Last week had nothing, period. There's one way to describe RAW and that is: Unfocused. They have nothing going on. Sure on Smackdown I may hate Dvon, and Steph, and whoever else, but they at least give me a variety of storylines to watch and care about. RAW? Nothing, zip, zilch, zero. And that makes it much less of a priority to watch.
Keep up the good work, BDL!

1.) Galvanizing angle? What, like the Invasion? 2.) Faster pace? Isn't that what got us to this mess in the first place? Longer feud = more time for fans to get involved/more buildup to the big payoff. I mean, look at the Rock/Jericho feud last fall....
