I think I still enjoy RAW more than any other but the action has picked up on Smackdown despite less star power.
pwinsider.com excerpt written in review of Smackdown....
What was on the show, was three very good matches (MNM-Kendrick & London, Batista-Booker-Finlay, Chavo-Benoit), one match that progressed two storylines (Taker-MVP), and one two-minute waste of time that featured hot babes instead of Boogeyman or The Miz. In other words, a really good episode of Smackdown, and a far superior show to Raw, ECW or Impact this week. Smackdown has become THE wrestling show of the week. If you've been skipping the program, you need to start setting your DVR's and VCR's, because this is a show worth making the time to watch. It is almost all killer, no filler.
What does everyone else feel is the best current wrestling show?
The Mr. Kennedy/MVP V Kane / Undertaker Feud: Building to 2 Huge matches at Armageddon.
The Batista V Booker V Finlay Feud: The top notch match on Smackdown rekindled Batista after the survivor series letdown.
The WWE tag titles starting to mean something again with the emergence of some new challengers and excellent matches guaranteed from the champs.
I gotta say that I've never been a Benoit or Chavo fan and while i can appreciate their matches for being good albeit short, any storyline that mentions Eddie these days is stuck in a quagmire of neverendingness. At least it's gradually moving down the card
No Legends showing up randomly.
JBL returning the colour commentator to what it needs to be. Unthinkable that he could put over so many people, justify heel actions and make Cole bearable all in two hours.
Match quality and length that belittles Raw. You can make the argument that it needs better storylines but if Finlay comming out this week and displaying some logic to get a title shot isn't good enough for you then you should watch a soap opera instead.
There's definately more but that'll do for now.
Three oinkers wearing pants, a plate of hot air, a basket of grandma's breakfast and change a bull to a gill, got it.
I can't say I bother with any new wrestling product. Raw has terrible wrestling, Smackdown doesn't matter, ECW matters less, and TNA is too rushed with too many awful Russo angles. Luckily, we just got WWE 24/7 in our area, so I can watch stuff that I know I'll actually like. Right now, I've been alternating between a Philly house show from 1983 (ten-man tag main event; Backlund defends against Studd; undercard matches with Curt Hennig and Eddie Gilbert) and an amusing (and mostly terrible) In Your House event from December of 1995 (hog pen match; "Buddy Rydell" - at least Bret/Bulldog in the main event will be good). Not sure why I'll happily watch old bad wrestling and I can't be bothered with new bad wrestling.
I keep forgetting about TNA and Smackdown until they're long since over, and ECW is shitty competition for Boston Legal on Tuesdays. So I guess Raw wins by default, although I rarely feel the "OH LORDS WHAT IS ABOUT TO OCCUR NEXT" feeling about any wrestling at all ever these days.
Great screen name. I never really got to see him since I started watching wrestling in 1999, but I have seen a lot of his older matches and he seemed like a good wrestler. Plus, I never heard anything bad about him outside of the ring.
