The WWE brand split is now in full effect, and we’ve already seen what both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live bring to the table.

Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon have made a few huge statements, they’ve announced the new WWE Universal Championship which will be unveiled at SummerSlam, while Raw will also be home to the returning Cruiserweight division.


As of this writing, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan have yet to match the announcements made by their Monday night counterparts, although Bryan did let it slip that a new women’s and tag team championships are in the works.

Despite the lack of blockbuster announcements, and what many believe to be a depleted roster in comparison to Raw, the SmackDown general manager has revealed why he believes SmackDown is better than Raw.

Speaking to the Bear Hug It Out Podcast, Bryan said: “To me, the best part about it is it’s only a two-hour show. It’s a lot funner to watch. It’s a lot easier to watch.

“But there’s also, we’re trying to really put the wrestlers first, the superstars first, so that’s one of the things we’re really doing for the show.


“We’re trying to make a more exciting show than Raw. But Shane and I are working really hard each and every week to make SmackDown must-see viewing.”

Bryan has said what most fans are thinking, a two-hour show does make for better viewing, especially since there’s already so much wrestling content taking place during the week.

It’s also why many fans, even WWE legends, say Raw should revert to a two-hour show, as fans do sometimes get bored of the filler matches and pointless segments that take place.

With SmackDown sticking to a two-hour format, and with Shane and Bryan at the helm, there’s real potential for SmackDown to compete with Raw in the long run.
