If you ask me, it's a stupid idea. Why do social media for a taped event? Everyone can read the results and it's not a surprise.
Not many people actually read the results of Smackdown man. What % of the fanbase do you think reads Smackdown spoilers at all, much less on a weekly basis?

It's a lot lower than you probably think. It's probably something like 5% which is probably still high (that'd be about a quarter million current WWE viewers). Most just don't watch Smackdown because it's boring and nothing too great usually happens between anyone of note.

I don't think Smackdown is boring at all. I enjoy SD more then Raw. I don't want to see Punk and Cena talk for an hour and they show replays over another 30 mins. We fight on friday nights.

Re: Social Media Smackdown....not live!

Social media SD sounds stupid anyway.

What do you want to see next?
1. Another bad movie trailer
2. The announcers eat fast food
3. Commercials
4. Reasons you should download the WWE app

The results are in. It's a four way tie! So you will get to see all of the above in succession!

It's been taped, but it's live commentary from the WWE HQ.

Re: Social Media Smackdown....not live!

I thought originally doing a live social media thing on a taped show sounds stupid.

But live commentary being put on a taped show is even more stupid.

Smackdown is just stupid.

CM Punk vs. John Cena
Best Rivalry of 2011. Screw Rock vs Cena.

Live and Let Die.
