Neither good nor surprising. Last week’s episode of “Smackdown Live” saw a stacked card with Vince McMahon making an appearance, along with three separate title matches. It’s no surprise that the show had one of the best ratings and audience in a long time, though the question was how much could they retain.
According to 411mania.com, this week’s show drew a .74 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.51 million viewers. These numbers are down 16% and 9% from last week’s .88 rating and 2.754 million viewers. This week’s show was headlined by a four way for the #1 contendership to the Women’s Title and the fallout from Kevin Owens attacking McMahon last week.

Opinion: This is about what I was expecting as last week’s show was huge and this week’s was your normal, run of the mill show. Aside from that though, as much as wrestling companies don’t seem to think so, people care about the World Champion. Jinder Mahal is one of the least interesting World Champions in years if not ever and he’s really not helping things in the slightest. Get the title off of him and maybe things can start to turn around for more than one week.
Why do you think the numbers are so low? Would taking the title off of Mahal help? Let us know in the comments below.
