– As noted earlier, Vince McMahon is at the RAW taping tonight in Atlanta and moving around on crutches after having hip surgery on Friday. We had reported on Thursday that McMahon was scheduled to have the surgery which is why they ran the angle with Brock Lesnar last Monday night. For those wondering, Vince is not expected to appear on RAW tonight unless plans change. Triple H is backstage as he always is and Brock Lesnar is there as well.
– Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown garnered a 2.03 (2.0) cable rating, with 2.97 million viewers. Those numbers are down slightly from a 2.08 and 3.03 million viewers the week before, though it is also the fourth straight week that the show has scored over a 2.0 rating.
The show ranked #6 among cable shows for the night and #3 in the key male demographics, which stayed even with last week’s demo ratings.
