WWE Raw vs. Smackdown Live: Which Was Better? (15th, 16th October, 2018)
#2. The Mid Card
Raw: Seth Rollins was wearing his Intercontinental Title but it didn't really become a focus at any point during the night, with 'The Architect' doing battle with Drew McIntyre over a World Cup Qualifying spot instead. Rollins won the match with the surprising help of Dean Ambrose
SmackDown: Meanwhile on SmackDown things had improved drastically because they actually let their United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura appear and wrestle on television. Sure, he didn't defend the title, instead also competing in a World Cup Qualifying Match against a returning Rey Mysterio and naturally lost.
Which was better?: The Rey Mysterio Vs.Shinsuke Nakamura match has led to the announcement that the two will meet again for a title match at Starrcade, so by default SmackDown wins for being the first show in such a long time to put of of their mid-card titles on the line.
Winner: SmackDown Live
