– Last night’s episode of SmackDown received a 76,997 social media score. This is higher than both last week (76,177) but lower than two weeks ago (77,716). SmackDown was the #1 show for cable television on Friday, up from #2 last week.
– To add one note to the story we reported earlier today regarding John Cena being pulled from the WWE live event in Portland on Saturday, despite being advertised by the company up until the day of the show, apparently WWE again offered refunds to fans who attended the show that felt ripped off with Cena not appearing as advertised.
Cena missed last week’s WWE weekend live event due to his elbow injury as well, and WWE offered refunds to those fans as well.
