Former WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion Cesaro recently did an interview where he spoke about comparisons between Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live.
For years now, WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon has positioned RAW as the flagship show of the company.
Since Cesaro has experience on both brands, he gave his take on the way that both shows run and the product that is delivered to fans. He did so by conducting an interview with The Citizens’ Voice to promote Tuesday’s WWE SmackDown Live episode in Uncasville, CT.
He would end his opinion by stating that he has high hopes for SmackDown as the show moves to Fox later this year.
“For us, it’s the same. We want to be on top of both shows,” Cesaro said. “We were a cornerstone of Raw, we are a cornerstone of SmackDown. We are the best team, that’s what we want to prove. That’s always our goal. SmackDown has a lot of potential. SmackDown, I feel, has more excitement than Raw even though Raw is always branded as the flagship show. But I think there’s a lot of excitement on SmackDown, there’s more focus on the wrestling aspect. With the new TV deal kicking in in November, I have high hopes for SmackDown.”
