Welcome to another edition of Battle of the Brands from Smark Out Moment, where we compare this week's episodes of Raw and SmackDown and determine which one of the two was the better show.

WWE Monday Night Raw - May 13, 2019 - The O2 London in London, England
WWE SmackDown - May 14, 2019 – The O2 London in London, England

which WWE TV show was better this week Raw vs SmackDown

BATTLE OF THE BRANDS:

RAW vs. SMACKDOWN


FACTOR 1: MATCHES

SmackDown had 3 matches and a brawl and a butt ton of promos. Raw wins by default, even if one of those was a stupid Mojo Rawley vs. Apollo Crews match.

WINNER: Raw

FACTOR 2: PROMOS

You'd think with all the promos on SmackDown, they would win this part, right? Well, nope. They were so underwhelming that Raw barely wins, just from having Cesaro say Dominic looks more like Samoa Joe than Rey Mysterio.

WINNER: Raw

FACTOR 3: STORYLINES

I'm more invested in the idea that Sami Zayn beat Braun Strowman and stole his spot than I am that anything happened on SmackDown.

WINNER: Raw

FACTOR 4: SCHEDULING / PACING

If you don't get the impression by now, SmackDown was all over the place and not good. Raw wasn't great, either, but it was still better even on the scheduling.

WINNER: Raw

EXTRA CREDIT BONUS ROUND!!!

No points extra or deducted from either show this week. They weren't good at all.

POINT ADJUSTMENTS: Raw (+0 / -0) / SmackDown (+0 / -0)

THIS WEEK'S WINNER = Raw

That's my pick for the better show of the week, but how do YOU stand?
Which was better, Raw or SmackDown?
