Re: SmackDown Viewership Drops

Poor Sheamus is given the worst show on earth to carry with Alboreto Dull Rio while the only remotely close to a star (Randy Orton) is being wasted in the middle of the show having meaningless matches.

Outside of Sheamus/Orton, though, I think they deserve the viewership. They might as well kill this show and stick all the interesting stuff on Raw and let the "wrestle only" guys do it on NXT/Superstars/whatever other show they have.

Re: SmackDown Viewership Drops

End the Supershow please. Since all the Smackdown stars appear on Raw, people have no reason to watch Smackdown. I miss the brand extension and drafts(you have to admit those are really fun).

Because people will start talking about Thursday night war, WWE fans (who never heard of TNA) will eventually check it out, see how TNA is a lot better than SD and SD viewership will drop even further.

I agree in part - people will start talking about the other company, which would force both to step their respective games up. I agree that I like what TNA is doing right now, but this could be a way to invigorate both companies with some competition.

I miss when smackdown used to mean something pre-brand extension. That's the era we should shoot for right now.

This Sheamus hate is quite amusing to me.

Re: SmackDown Viewership Drops

Smackdown lost all hope the second Daniel Bryan and AJ left it.Nobody cares about Boreton or Sheamus or Del Rio or most of anybody on the Smackdown roster.

Ulfric Stormcloak; not a racist, not a megalomaniac, not a savage, but a hero with heart & ambition.

All hail to Ulfric you are the High King
In your great honor we drink and we sing
We're the children of Skyrim and we fight all our lives
And when Sovngarde beckons everyone of us dies

We drink to our youth to the days come and gone
For the age of oppression is now nearly done

Re: SmackDown Viewership Drops

Maybe it's because I never watch SmackDown now, but I'm surprised they still have that amount of viewers tuning in.

Re: SmackDown Viewership Drops

Sheamus fault like always just watch his segment this past RAW with Cena.... nobody wants to see his shitty comedy and stupid Sherminator on roids face.
