– The 2nd edition of Friday Night Smackdown on FOX saw a huge decline in viewership from last week’s premiere. This week’s show, built around the WWE Draft, drew 2.898 million viewers which was almost a full million viewers drop from last week’s 3.869 million viewers. While the overall viewership drop was around 25%, Smackdown still did well in the 18-49 demo with a 0.95 rating.
– Kevin Owens vented on Twitter about being one of the later Draft picks to RAW during last night’s edition of Smackdown:
Last night, the @WWE digital team asked me for my thoughts after I was drafted to #Raw.
I gave them a very honest, heartfelt answer. They decided not to post the footage because I appeared to be angry.
I was angry. I still am.
Looks like I still have lots to prove.
