Last week WWE SmackDown Live drew a big number as 3.170 million viewers tuned in to watch the WWE Draft.
Viewership was down for this week’s show which featured a number 1 contender’s match in the main event, as it drew 2.744 million viewers according to ShowBuzzDaily.com.
It was a big week for Finn Balor and Dolph Ziggler as Balor earned himself a shot at the Universal Championship and Ziggler earned himself a shot at the WWE Championship.
There was some speculation that Triple H may have been booking the shows due to the fact that Balor pinned Reigns clean on Monday. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter responded to a fan who was asking about the booking decisions and he noted that Vince is still in charge of booking.
