SmackDown Rating Continues To Sink, Benoit Shown On WWE TV



– The June 3 episode of WWE SmackDown featuring a World Heavyweight Championship Match scored a 1.77 cable rating, down from 1.83 on May 27 and 1.89 on May 20.

SmackDown averaged 2.7 million viewers, extending the program’s streak of less than 3.0 million viewers to five consecutive weeks.

Prior to the program’s ratings downturn, the show was averaging 3.06 million viewers per episode in 2011.

– WWE will highlight “High Flyers” during July on WWE Classics On Demand. The synopsis reads: “All July on WWE Classics On Demand, we soar to new heights with sports-entertainments greatest “High Flyers.” Relive the aerial artistry of pioneers like Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka to the modern day aerial masters like Rey Mysterio. Plus don’t miss an all-new episode of the original roundtable series, Legends of Wrestling.”

– Currently airing on WWE Classics On Demand is the June 22, 1998 episode of WCW Monday Nitro. One of the matches featured is Steve “Mongo” McMichael vs. Stevie Ray, which climaxes with Benoit interfering in the bout by preventing the Harlem Heat member from using a steel chair.
