Re: Shakeup increases Smackdown viewership (OP Updated)

It's quite surprising to see that most of the people posted here are missing the point.

Charlotte drawing that numbers to SD? Owens? Zayn? And arguments over who is drawing and who is not and explaining about the attributes of each wrestlers.

Well, don't you think this ratings is for the actual 'Shake up' episode? I mean, people would be naturally curious to know WHO ALL are joining SD from RAW. The surprise element. That should be the factor that sold the episode. Not the drawing power of any of them are the primary factor here.

Most of the arguments here can be taken up for the next week's ratings, where you already know what roster you are going to watch. Where the drawing power of these wrestlers count.

Re: Shakeup increases Smackdown viewership (OP Updated)

She's the biggest acquisition that SmackDown got by far, who else did they get? Kevin "the Accountant" Owens? Shining Stars?

The idea of SmackDown being the "wrestling" show is also stupid. Ratings will tank when the vast majority of them cant talk. I dont know why it has to keep being said so much, but there's a lot more to pro wrestling than just moves. At least the under utilized guys on SDL like Zayn and Rusev have a chance of being pushed now, while on Raw anyone who isn't one of HHH's pets may as well just retire now because they'll never get pushed.
