Smackdown on 1/26 drew 177,000 viewers in Canada (or about a 2.2 rating), and for the week, ECW did 126,000 Canadian viewers (or a 0.8 rating), reports The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Dave Meltzer is reporting that WWE is trying to secure deals with Mexican regulars Shocker, Perro Aguayo Jr., and Mistico. Dusty Rhodes has pushed for Shocker, whom he worked with in TNA. Another plus for Shocker is that he is from California, and can speak English. The Smackdown audience is heavily Hispanic. On an interesting side note, CMLL is putting together a Mistico vs. Aguayo Jr. mask vs. hair match next month to combat WWE’s shows in the country next month.
