WWE Smackdown Live Ratings sky rockets post Superstar Shakeup!


Last night’s episode of Smackdown Live revolved around the continuation of the “Superstar Shakeup” as 3,105,000 million viewers tuned into Smackdown Live on the USA Network. Last night’s episode was up by eight percent compared to last week’s post-WrestleMania edition of Smackdown Live. 

Last night’s episode of Smackdown Live was the most highest Smackdown episode since last year’s WWE Draft special show which averaged 3,170,000 million viewers.

The following WWE superstars made their way over from Monday Night Raw to Smackdown Live following night two of the “Superstar Shakeup”

  • WWE United States Champion Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Charlotte, The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Big E, Xavier Woods) Rusev, Lana, Sin Cara, Jinder Mahal, The Shining Stars and Tamina
Also on Smackdown Live we got to see a terrific main event which featured A.J. Styles defeating Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin in a triple-threat match to become the number 1 contender for Kevin Owens United States Championship.
  • Kevin Owens will face Chris Jericho for the WWE United States Championship at WWE Payback and the winner be on Smackdown Live.

We also found out on Smackdown Live that Shinsuke Nakamura’s first WWE main roster program will be against Dolph Ziggler.

  • We also know that Smackdown’s Randy Orton will defend the WWE Championship against Raw’s Bray Wyatt in a ‘House of Horror’ match at WWE Payback.

So this leaves the WWE title picture on Smackdown is in holding pattern for the time being. If Orton wins it will be interesting to see who he defends the WWE championship against with Styles involved in a feud with Owens for the time being. If Wyatt wins this could open the doors to Brock Lesnar bringing the WWE Universal Championship over to Smackdown Live.
