Opinionated: The Raw and SmackDown Slump

It’s indisputable that WWE put out an incredibly vast amount of content. Just in a week, and not mentioning their social media content or original WWE Network programming, we see Raw, SmackDown, Nxt, Nxt UK, 205 Live and more. We get at least one, sometimes more than one, PPV or Special each month too. That’s A Lot of content. That’s a lot of wrestling.
