Early SD! Rating, New WM23 Match Revealed, & More

Ryan Clark


Based on the Nielsen Media Research’s fast national numbers, Smackdown last night scored a 2.7 rating. The show was delayed in a handful of markets due to NCAA college basketball coverage. The final rating should be available sometime next week.

A New Wrestlemania match has been announced on WWE.com: Melina vs. Ashley for the WWE Women’s championship.

Friday Night Smackdown was shown on a delay Friday night on CW 50 in Detroit. Smackdown aired from 8:40 to 10:40PM local time due to coverage of the Big Ten NCAA basketball tournament.

WWE 24/7 now has 35,000 average monthly subscribers in North America. That number has to be considered a major disappointment considering that it is pretty much the same as last year, even after several cable systems picked it up, most notably Comcast. The price tag is only $6.95, thus meaning that WWE 24/7 only makes a little over $240,000 in gross revenue per month.
