Maybe it wasn’t just the basketball. One of WWE’s biggest issues over the year has been their sagging TV ratings. For a variety of reasons, fans just aren’t watching WWE TV like they have been in years past and it only seems to be getting worse. This week’s show was the go home edition for “Money in the Bank 2017” and things actually fell further.
Opinion: Honestly, this is hardly surprising. Look at what was advertised for the show. Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal have a faceoff before their rematch and a six man tag that has no bearing on Sunday’s match because, as JBL put it last week, pinning someone has nothing to do with climbing a ladder. Why should you watch something like this if WWE has pretty much made it clear that the show means nothing?
Did you watch this week’s “Smackdown Live”? If you didn’t, why not? Let us know in the comments below.
