WWE SmackDown Live vs. WWE Raw – Who came out on top after Tables, Ladders and Chairs?
We analyse the best bits of Raw and SmackDown Live to see who triumphed this week.
Tables, Ladders and Chairs, was your average gimmick pay-per-view show. It had some OK matches, no real surprises, but some impressive spots nonetheless. With SmackDown Live dealing with the ramifications of the outcomes of these matches, it’s possible we could be in for a bit more of an exciting outing than last week.
Both shows are working at opposite ends of the spectrum, as Raw is trying to build storylines for Roadblock and SmackDown Live is attempting to shift feuds and rivalries to keep things fresh, until their next outing on the WWE Network.
With this in mind, I will be curious to see if there is any stark contrast between how the shows are presented, and received by the audience.
If you haven’t seen this series before, it’s currently 10-9 to Raw on my scoreboard for the brand split. I focus on the positives in each show every week and analyse what made each show shine.
