SmackDown Live is Now the WWE’s Best Show

While RAW is still great and has some exceptional talent, SmackDown has seen an upswing in better stories, better matches, and all of the talent seems to have much better chemistry.

Predictably, The Fearless Finn Balor Takes Samoa Joe’s Challenge

Topps 2017 WWE Heritage: A Bleeding Cool Box Break
