Gotta think Smackdown will get one of the highest ratings it's gotten in YEARS.

Don't think anyone has been excited for an episode of Smackdown since about 2009, really hope Smackdown can legit compete with Raw.

There was an interesting stat that was posted on reddit that Smackdown's ratings haven't changed since 2010. They've been bouncing between 1.6-2.0 for 6 years while Raw has declined every year. It'll be interesting to see if this draft will change that trend.

I'm not getting my hopes up too much, but this can be just what WWE needs if done right. I'm staying up to see Smackdown for the first time.
