WWE Smackdown Viewership Drops But Maintains Strong Numbers

This week's edition of WWE SmackDown Live, which featured a dream match main event of AJ Styles and Daniel Bryan defeating Rusev Day by disqualification, garnered around 2,796,000 viewers, which is down considerably from last week's post-Mania show but still fairly strong. It should be noted that the shakeup likely had a lot to do with the numbers too. With the recent "stacked" roster that the Blue brand has acquired, we should get a good indication of where they stand with viewers in the coming weeks.
