NXT Elimination Announced, SmackDown Scores Viewership High
— The January 14 episode of WWE SmackDown on Syfy scored a 1.9 cable rating, tying the previous week’s ratings high.
The program garnered 2.98 million viewers over the course of two hours, setting a new benchmark on Syfy. The previous week’s show averaged 2.85 million viewers.
— The results of the second poll of the fourth season of NXT were revealed on last night’s episode and it was announced that Alberto Del Rio’s Rookie, Conor O’Brian, has been eliminated from the competition.
A disappointed O’Brian spoke on the microphone and declared his experience on NXT as real and fun. Suddenly, Ricardo Rodriguez walked on-stage and declared O’Brian a loser. O’Brian told Ricardo to kiss his rat tail. Ricardo continued chastising O’Brian in Spanish before being chased to the backstage area by the eliminated NXT Rookie. O’Brian re-emerged and said “You all absolutely suck” to no one in particular. He then announced that the rat has left the building.
