Great news on one hand. On the other hand it doesn't say much about the WWE product in general.The Rock's return to WWE spiked 7-year-highs in U.K. viewing figures for WWE programming.
The Smackdown show on February 18th (first show after Rock's return earlier that week) did 201,000 viewers, most viewers for a weekly WWE tv show on Sky since an August 20th, 2004 edition of WWE Raw.
The Elimination Chamber ppv on February 20th as a live tv special on Sky Sports 1 did 265,000 viewers, the most viewers for a WWE ppv as a non-ppv tv special in the U.K. since Wrestlemania 20 on March 14th, 2004 (which did 450,000 viewers).
On a side note. I didn't realise Wrestlemania 20 did so well over here. I know WM used to be on Sky for free TV but still.
