— Smackdown this week received a 3.0 rating, which is down from last week’s 3.4 rating. Just a note, Smackdown was preempted in New York, which has a huge affect on the rating, considering it’s one of the largest TV markets in the country.
— It’s been advertised in the New York market for a house show of the Smackdown brand to be Kurt Angle vs. Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker vs. Big Show with Vince McMahon as the guest referee. The match will be the main event for the Madison Square Garden show on September 20th.
