SmackDown continues to draw poor live attendance (photo)

Becky Lynch - Charlotte Flair

While WWE has made some efforts to make their programming more interesting and they have been trying new things in hopes to garner more interest in their product, the company hasn’t seen a lot of increased interest.

Last year we saw the company pulling some of its lowest TV ratings in the history and the Live attendance for the shows also saw some massive decline.

The same was the case for this week’s episode of SmackDown Live as well and below is a picture showcasing the poor attendance during the Becky Lynch segment on the show:

SmackDown is the house to some of the biggest stars of the company and it’s generally praised as the better show among the two when compared to Raw by the fans.

So if the show is still drawing such poor attendance maybe the company needs to rethink their strategy of making the brand their star and try to build some more stars that can draw the audience to the arenas.

    They have been focusing on The Man as the main feud it’s been dismal attendance.

    Loses clean to Asuka then is a legit contender to Ronda. Makes no sense….

    I do believe that WWE is going to be loading Smackdown with lots of talent with there move to Fox. I believe Braun Strowman will be on Smackdown when they move to Fox and he will be holding the WWE title.

    What is IWC?

    you do realize WWE is still not pleasing the fans in some aspects these days. i get they are trying to win the IWC back to keep them from becoming a “All Elite” audience.

    SmackDown attendance issues has been around longer then that decision. plus, Becky was losing to Asuka in that match anyway as it was meant to be a blow off to that feud and transition her back into the Ronda feud.

    WWE had a pretty good week and wrestling fans are happy the direction they are heading. Then he comes the dirt sheet with there negative crap instead of enjoying the moment. Smackdown is going to be flooded with superstars after WM so no worries.

    After the Rumble and Raw maybe people didn’t have money to go to Smackdown?

    3 shows in 3 days for some might not be possible, and SD misses out.

    That’s what happens when Becky taps out then wins the rumble. You made your bed now sleep in it!
