Last week’s episode of SmackDown featured one of the most monumental matches in the history of the show. Now, we know the final viewership for the show.
Showbuzz Daily has reported the viewership figures for SmackDown with the event garnering an average of 2.018 million viewers. The show also managed a 4.3 rating in the key 18-49 male demographic.
This week’s program featured the main event of Daniel Bryan vs. Roman Reigns. The match was contested over the Universal Championship with Bryan’s SmackDown career on the line. Reigns was able to retain the title, choking Bryan out for the referee stoppage.
This was not the only title match on the show, however, as Big E faced Apollo Crews in a rematch for the Intercontinental Championship. The match did not have a conclusive finish, compared to the main event, as Commander Azeez attacked Big E for the disqualification.
There are two weeks remaining before WrestleMania Backlash. Currently, the blue brand only has one match announced for the pay per view. That being Bayley vs. Bianca Belair.
