    @ Blue4everd If you read it correctly it says SINCE April 8th has been the most watched, not only last week you fool. People say after WM Ratings go down stfu @ them.

    Impact Playas can eat shit @ thinking Impact beats SD or RAW, maybe in UK but thats small fish compared to USA, WWE Programming averages out well Ahead of Impact. Impact Wrestling should move their offices to UK and stay there 4eva. * Smug Face *

    i think they only watched it because of Cody Rhodes “busted open” scenes….but thats just a theory :p LOL

    So much for the theory that no one would watch Smackdown because Mark Henry is the champion. I thought it would be the exact opposite, and that people would be interested because we finally have a strong heel. Now I just hope they don’t discredit him and make him look like a joke within a month’s time.

    Also, why do wrestling “fanboys” exist? Why do people want all other shows to fail except their favorite? It makes zero sense to me. The more good programs the better, in my opinion.
