First Smackdown After Wrestlemania Sees Large Increase in Viewership

This week's edition of WWE SmackDown Live, which featured a dream match main event of AJ Styles taking on Daniel Bryan (which ended in a No Contest due to interference from Shinsuke Nakamura), garnered around 2,952,000 viewers, which is the usual post-Wrestlemania bump that the show would receive around this time and the highest numbers for Smackdown so far this year. Expect the numbers to drop quite a bit next week much like what will happen with RAW.
