The pressure was on Raw and SmackDown Live this week to deliver a quality television product as WrestleMania 33 rapidly approaches.

Thanks to a series of red-hot angles, including returns and brutal attacks, both shows were able to accomplish that. Unfortunately, only one could claim victory in the weekly battle for brand supremacy.

Raw got things off to a hot start with the return of Seth Rollins, an ultimatum for Mick Foley and Roman Reigns' face-to-face with Shawn Michaels.

SmackDown Live countered with AJ Styles' first attack on Shane McMahon, Bray Wyatt's haunting promo on Randy Orton and two women's bouts that continued to emphasize the importance of the division to the Tuesday night show.

For all the positives, the shows shared a common negative that earned the "biggest botch" status for the week of March 16.

Which show did more right en route to victory in this week's competition between flagship shows? What was their common flaw?

Take a look now with this WWE week-in-review.
