Raw and Smackdown are new shows - or at least a slightly new style of presentation anyway.

ROH went into a recap overload, but the original TV from Carolina has been good. And the Philadelphia tapings I was at a few weeks back start this weekend and they're very, very good shows.

Impact, yes Impact!, has been good too. Honestly, it's not GREAT, but it's not the punching bag it used to be.

CWC I feel has flown under the radar for a bunch of reasons. Summer time and people are busier + so much wrestling content to watch already + being tape delay.

Lucha Underground will have a good advantage with both seasons two and now as recently announced, (some of) season three airing this year.
Raw has been better and fresher the last two weeks while Smackdown has been different if not necessarily better.

LU has been eh all year. CWC has been my favorite format but the short run will likely prevent it from picking up many votes for best.

I'd say since Takeover: The End NXT is back to being my favorite. There have been several great matches, some great build towards Brooklyn and a few nice surprises each week. Not sure it makes up for everything before Dallas and the Dallas tapings though.

Post-brandsplit WWE tv has been incredibly watchable. Small sample. I think my inability to name a weekly TV show that's been great displays just how tough it is to produce compelling weekly wrestling shows. LU and ROH are decent. NJPW on AXS doesn't really count.

Don't care about the CWC not counting, it's the best weekly TV show of 2016 in wrestling.

thinking that...the only possible name i can put at 3 is ROH. My issue is early smackdown was very skippable this year.

ROH's TV show is not good this year, and at least after the Draft, Smackdown is really good. Altough I am actually wondering whether Meltzer will allow to vote for CWC.

Still three months, but Smackdown feels like the choice. I thought it was holding some ground for a lot of the year, and post draft it's been gravy.

Right now, I'm going-

1. ROH TV
2. WWE Smackdown
3. Lucha Underground

Really wish Dave reconsiders the CWC stance in which case I'd have that as my #1.

I don't see Lucha Underground winning this after coming in second last year and almost winning.

NXT
It's a basic 1-hour pro wrestling show and the only weekly show that I make sure not to skip. Only a handful of what I would call 'bad' shows.

Smackdown has been more good than bad, but i'm already back to skipping it and watching whatever they stick on YouTube. Lucha Underground fell off a cliff for me and I haven't had the time to regularly watch Elite since July or so.
