WWE promoting Brock Lesnar and Cain Velasquez obviously didn’t help bring in the ratings.
Friday Night SmackDown needed to move to FS1 this week due to the World Series. That move put a huge dent in the ratings
SmackDown only pulled in 888,000 viewers on FS1 last week. That is a very bad number, but a lot needs to be considered. They weren’t on FOX and the World Series was running in competition.
Hopefully, WWE will be able to pull up the ratings for the blue brand’s show next week as they will be back on FOX.
