Best/Worst TV Show

Post by Joe Lanza » Fri Nov 09, 2018 1:06 am

Gotta go with 205 Live for best, it's the only show I consistently look forward to watching.

Most wrestling shows are firmly mediocre for one reason or another. RAW is too long. Smackdown is wildly inconsistent. I've stopped watching both. MLW is OK, probably my #2, it has come on real strong lately but is often underwhelming bell to bell. ROH is all over the place. Impact is mostly meh. NXT has annoyed me lately. NXT UK is good but brand new.

This seems pretty chalk to me. People will vote New Japan on AXS without thinking about it and vote Raw without thinking about it. At least this year there's been some life to Impact so Raw seems a fair enough worst.

NXT's definite number one for me, not just by default. But this might be one where voters are set in their ways a bit. Plus I'm not sure how many NXT watchers actually watch NXT TV, but then again I'm not sure how many New Japan watchers watch it on AXS, so, shrug.

Raw is the simplistic choice for worst, but to me, ROH TV is pretty terrible even though it has some good matches. It really does a very poor job building storylines and matches and overall feels like completely superfluous watching.

NXT has had a tremendous year with quite a few fantastic matches, but I'd probably go with 205 Live. The fact that so many wrestlers on that brand are in significantly better spots (in terms of match quality at least) than last year speaks volumes to me.

RAW.

It's reached WCW Nitro 99-01 territory. I truly wish nothing but the worst for that trash heap of a program.

RAW is now actively bad, so I will state that simplistic or not, it's the right choice.

NXT has been straight up meh at times this year, despite producing good matches. Maji Manji so far and away stomps on everything else. The only reason it shouldn't be number one on every single ballot is if you don't think it ran for long enough.
