People often tell me how Smackdown was better than Raw during the early part of the Ruthless Aggression era but I honestly don't think so. If anything, I found Smackdown not boring but not as adrenaline pumping as Raw was. The only thing I liked about Smackdown during that time was The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle. Raw had so many extreme matches and main events, despite that Triple H was hogging up all of the stardom during that era(which probably may be the reason why people preferred Smackdown). In fact, nearly all of the Elimination Chamber matches were only for the Raw brand wrestlers during the time other than No Way Out 2008(The very end of the Ruthless Aggression Era). Raw was also more edgier with their segments and storylines between wrestlers. These were the reasons why I preferred Raw over Smackdown during that time.
