  1. I wonder how smackdown will do rating wise by comparison. It doesnt have to deal with the NFL juggernaut and its only two hours.

    Also, i would argue its a better show.

  2. Vince: “I told all of you that indy hack AJ Styles doesn’t put butts in seats. Time to give the belt back to Cena or Lesnar. ACK, my weightlifting injury! More Lesnar juice!”
