The actual draft was so so as their wasn't any major surprises. I think people tuned in for that reason. If SD can stay in the high 2s I'd consider that a success.
For a show that the actual draft took place on, AND had Raw guys (the entire WWE roster) on it, that is a ghastly number. No competition, no 3rd hour to drag them down. Scary bad number.

People feel SD got raped because Cena and Orton are stale and haven't drawn anything on TV in years. And outside of that their next two biggest names are Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles..

People thinking this SD number is because SD is live.

2.9 will be the Raw average this fall if they are lucky, not Smackdown.
Tuesday's generally a weaker night for television, plus it's a two-hour show, so it's much easier to sit through.

Honestly, though, when football, basketball and hockey start up I think they'll dip to the mid-2 millions. I think they'll sustain around 2.9m through the summer, though.

Balor and Reigns weren't on the show.

The only Raw star on it was Seth and we already know he isn't a draw.

Smackdown's GM is a bigger draw than anyone on the Raw roster, probably a bigger draw than the whole Raw roster combined

Both shows are going to suck, but in terms of quality, Smackdown has to be better than RAW.

  • 2 hours long
  • Star power (Cena & Orton)
  • No Michael Cole
  • No Stephanie McMahon
  • No Shield rivalry
  • No New Day segments

Bryan has drawing power, no doubt. But even if he was wrestling he wouldn't have the appeal he had in 2013. He benefited greatly from working with a fresh authority angle. Now Stephanie and Triple H have become stale characters.

And no one SD's roster is a draw, either..

Last night's show, with the Draft, compared to a normal Raw, the previous night only drew 40,000 (3.17 vs. 3.13 million) more viewers than a regular, non-Draft Raw. And this was a SD with the entire roster on it. A show without a 3rd hour to drag it down. No competition, either.

Horrible and very scary for WWE.

SD has the WWE's only FT draw with Cena.

In that case, a show with Cena and the draft on it should have no problem drawing at *least* in the mid 3's, then..

Oh, boy. I see battle lines already being drawn.



"My guy is on RAW and we're going to beat you.."

"My guy is on SD and we're gonna win.."


The bickering over who draws more should be more entertaining than the actual shows. I'm hoping SD wins more often only for giggles.
