– The final rating for Friday’s WWE SmackDown show is in and the August 3rd episode did a 1.91 cable rating, about the same as the previous week. This week’s show averaged 2.78 million viewers.
– We noted earlier that WWE Champion CM Punk was involved in the post-RAW festivities for Shawn Michaels last night after RAW in San Antonio. Punk told a story about how Shawn has inspired him since he was young and how he has kept his autograph since was 15 years old. Shawn replied to Punk on Twitter:
“And to @CMPunk …thank you!! I never told anyone the story…it was yours to tell when you wanted. Thank you for sharing it w/San Antonio.”
