In terms of House Show's Smackdown is were it is. Raw's talent is crap. Scott Steiner makes me want to go to sleep and then Triple H comes out. Then I need life support to stay through one of their show's.
I've been to both show's and I have to say although Raw looks better on TV. Smackdown is better live than Raw. There are few TV timeouts and when their is they play some nice Diva movies.
