Author’s take

Honestly speaking, the WWE is a truly unique sports-entertainment organization—an excellent blend of sports, entertainment, drama, comedy, action, and so much more.

While SmackDown has always been considered the B-Show, with RAW leading the charge as regards all things WWE; the hardcore pro-wrestling community often praises SmackDown for the pure-wrestling content and less mainstream shenanigans that it brings to the WWE Universe.

Here’s to 1000 more SmackDown episodes!
