How come Smackdown is so much better than Raw when it’s produced by the same company?

I think it comes down to FOX wanting a more “sports centric” product why WWE creative can do “their thing” on Monday nights.  I wish FOX would buy the rights to Raw.

And, why is Raw so, so bad?  It seems like they are trying to get viewers to change the channel.

I think it’s all about the creative process.  It needs to be blown up.  What they are doing just isn’t resonating.  Unfortunately I don’t see any way that happens.

I saw that Peacock subscription rose and they credit WWE for at least part of that.  Do you agree?

I do.  That was the place in the US to watch WrestleMania and they gave WWE fans a great deal.  I don’t know how many of the people who subscribed did so for WWE but they had over a million people paying for The WWE Network.  I think it’s far that they got more than that to join Peacock for WWE, due to the lower cost.

I took your advice and started watching NXT UK.  It’s great!  Why is it that the company that produces Raw can also do a show that good?

I think the easy answer is that Vince McMahon doesn’t have his fingerprints on it.  Last I heard, Shawn Michaels and Jeremy Borash were in charge and can do pretty much what they want.  I wish they were booking Raw.

I watched the Roddy Piper Biography on A & E.  Did Vince McMahon really pretend he was talking to Roddy Piper in Hell?  What is wrong with him?

I too thought it was a pretty bizarre thing to do, but that’s Vince for you.  And to be fair, I don’t know what their personal relationship was, maybe Roddy would have thought it was funny.  I tend to doubt it, but you never know.
