This week’s episode of Smackdown Live saw a much-needed increase in viewership with just one more week to go before the annual Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
The show, which was headlined by an instant classic performance between Andrade (no longer Cien Almas) and Rey Mysterio, was watched by an estimated 2,143,000 people, up 5.5% week-over-week. It was the most-watched episode since before the pre-tapped 2018 Christmas Day and New Year’s Day episodes.
