When comes to which is the better brand it is a personal thing. Raw has certain superstars like Triple H, King Booker, Jeff Hardy and my personal favourite HBK Sh…awn Michaels. Where as SmackDown has The UnderTaker, Kane, Rey Mysterio and Batista. Then there is a third brand which you havent mentioned which is ECW which has CM Punk, John Morrison and The Miz.
I like Raw the best followed by ECW then SmackDown ( Full Answer )
