On an evening that was originally scheduled to be overshadowed by the FIFA Women’s World Cup, WWE SmackDown pulled off a surprise with an unexpected clash between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso. This special edition of the blue brand attracted an estimated 1.182 million viewers, according to Fast-nationals data, marking a record-breaking 31% increase from the previous episode.

The stunning escalation in viewership was mainly attributed to the main event of the evening – The Rules of Engagement between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso. WWE fans across the globe eagerly tuned in to witness the dramatic fallout between the family members, and what a spectacle it turned out to be.

Tribal Combat Challenge Marks History

The episode concluded with Jey Uso challenging Roman Reigns to a Tribal Combat at SummerSlam, a No Disqualification match where all props are permissible. This defining moment, marking an all-time high in the ratings is sure to be remembered as a turning point in WWE SmackDown’s illustrious history.

The fervor that surrounded the tribal battle between Reigns and Uso was palpable throughout the WWE universe. Fans who also have been following the tension-filled narrative between these two performers were finally rewarded with a climactic showdown.

WWE SmackDown: A New Champion Emerges

Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics was among the first to take notice of the surge in ratings, promptly taking to Twitter to confirm that the latest edition’s numbers are the highest the blue brand has ever recorded on FS1. This historic rise in viewership numbers has sparked enthusiasm across the professional wrestling world, underlining the continued popularity of the WWE’s flagship Friday night show.

Whereas, the previous record was held by the episode that aired in October 2019, marking the debut of WWE SmackDown on Fox. Fast forward to the present, and the recent viewership data prove that WWE SmackDown’s momentum shows no signs of slowing down.

Looking Ahead to the Future

The promising rise in ratings serves as an exciting prelude to SummerSlam, where the heat between Reigns and Uso is expected to reach its fever pitch. If the historic viewership numbers from this episode are any indication, WWE SmackDown is set to continue its reign in the world of professional wrestling entertainment.

The record-breaking viewership is not only a testament to the captivating storyline between Reigns and Uso but also to the enduring appeal of WWE SmackDown. As the brand continues to push the envelope with unexpected twists and high-octane matches, one can only anticipate more groundbreaking moments in the future.

Also, this landmark achievement reinforces WWE SmackDown’s position as a major player in the television sports arena, and the forthcoming episodes are likely to maintain, if not surpass this extraordinary momentum. Stay tuned to see if WWE SmackDown can top itself yet again!
