>Last night's WWE SmackDown, featuring the fallout from Survivor Series and James Ellsworth vs. WWE World Champion AJ Styles in the Ladder Match main event, drew 2.505 million viewers. This is down from last week's 2.725 million viewers for the SmackDown 900 episode.

Save us BMJ. Ajetty is killing the show

And when you think about it Raws ratings will rise in the future, it's been getting 3.0s in Football season. Cuckdown has no competition on Tuesday all year round and still can't draw for shit

Ellsworth push should have ended after SS.

Smackdown only got 500,000 less viewers than RAW with no old nostalgia wrestlers or top guys even wrestling other than AJ vs a jobber. Wait until Cena and Undertaker come back into the fold RAWtist.
>>
>Undertaker not even mentioned
>>
>build your show around Ambrose
>Ellsworth keeps main eventing
>champion is a footnote

Are they fucking surprised? Fuck smackdown.

Well, the main event was a comedy promo (because that was not a match). That audience is good if you think about it.
>>
>No Cena
>No Undertaker
>Has the worst member of the Shield
>The champ has been buried by a chinless jobber

AJ can only do so much dudes. I love the guy, but he can't carry the entire brand by himself.
>>

He's not allowed to do anything other than look like a chump to the benefit of James fucking Ellsworth and Cuckbrose.

It isn't AJ's fault, he keeps getting put in matches with meme wrestlers like Ellsworth and Dean. Also
>900th episode featuring Undertakers return outdoes the following week
>this is somehow a surprise

You're using the Marty Janetty meme wrong too

AJ is too much of a professional to tell the writers to stick Ellsmeme where the sun don't shine.
>>
>>1990577
This. Ellsworth, Becky and Ziggler need to fuck off. That will fix the show. Fire these cucks

>>1990580
The IC belt is basically the top belt on Cuckdown, that's why they didn't want it to go to Raw. Plus Cena will eventually hold it down the road.

THIS. The ratings would jump if not for anti-draws and charisma black holes holding titles and shitting up feuds

How does based SmA+ckdown do it lads? RAM literally loses more than double the viewers in one episode than what was lost from 900th special to regular show here.

They dont have Seth

>Blaming the heel champion for ratings.

18+ and not retarded.
>>
I blame it on Ellsworth.
Or, to be more precise, I blame it on the fuckers who are over-using Ellsworth.
The joke was fun the first week it was used when he beat AJ Styles with Ambrose's help, but the joke started stretching thin real fast and it's just dumb at this point.
>>
>>1990499
It's not AJ's fault, it's more that they announced another fucking match with Ellsworth.

Even I nearly stopped watching and I have literally nothing else to do in my life.
>>
Maybe the ratings dropped because
>Almost every tag match has the entire tag team division
>Ziggler vs Miz needs to end already
>Carmella and Nikki are boring
>Becky Lynch needs to feud with other people
>Every main event is either AJ vs Dean or AJ vs Ellsworth with Dean helping James win
>>
>>1990525
Undercarder didn't do anything, retard.

Edge was the draw.
>>
I think that Ellsworth will be in the Rumble match and his work will be breaking the fastest elimination...

And it's a strange thing that he haven't been yet the special referee in a Dean vs AJ Styles title match.
>>
>>1990580
The Miz and Dolph are really trying hard to make the show credible.

They're good, but not good enough to carry the deadweight of the ellsworth bullshit.

Hurrr hurrr undercarder

Undercarder is popular with casuals. He just isn't a draw. Different thing. People will see him for free but won't pay a dime to see him

But you gave him a (You)

>>1990677

I saw that Ellsworth won again and has ANOTHER title match and I didn't even bother downloading SD this week.

I might skip next week but who knows when the Ellsworth bullshit will end.

This is what happens when you put a failure like Dean on top of the card.

Boring, shitty wrestler, useless gimmick, botches almost as much as botcha... Really, there's no saving the show with him in the upper card.
>>
>>1990661
But there so much potential with a jobber storyline. James can actually wrestle but look at him. They need to pull it back for sure but dont dismiss this yet.
>>
Even based Kurt Angle couldn't make AJetty into a draw on TNA.
>>
>>1990557
he's killing the ratings without being there
>>
>>1990797
His 2014 run killed his drawing potential. No one ever talks about him in fantasy match conversations anymore.

>>1990614
>rawtists looking for excuses to defend their dying brand
I'm sure the New Day will bring your brand to new heights

People would still love to see him again, it's understood that it was booking's fault, not his.
>>

This. He is definitely in the top 10 most recognisable wrestlers of all time.

Smackdown is having problems because...

>No John Cena

>Miz has no one to feud with
>Midcard is the same 2-3 feuds (Miz/Zig, Kalisto/Corbin, Crews/Hawkins)
>Tag Teams are under-used
>Too many Women segments
>THEY KEEP TRYING TO PUSH AMBROSE
>>
The Ellsworth thing was fun but should have ended after a few weeks with AJ beating the shit out of him and getting back to making the Dean feud actually serious

Now his entire reign has devolved into losing constantly to a meme jobber while no one gives a shit about his actual challenger

There's nothing wrong with having a foil but this has just gone on too far, and now Ellsworth has a contract despite it being established that he's made of wet tissue and cant even take a punch without flopping around
>>
>>1991109
I agree with missing Cena and Undertaker, and the lack of the roster depth for Miz, etc.

However, I do not think that there are too many women segments. It seems they are spending enough time to develop interesting feuds (two right now!)

Raw isn't any different

>Finn Balor's injury forced Raw to accept Fatty Owens as champion since Jasethy and Roman just won the company title a few months ago and Jericho's powerlevel has been severely damaged since Wrestlemania
>Bork is a part-timer and now Oldberg
>Roman has no one to feud with since the Raw midcard is essentially barren outside of Rusev and taxi man
>Tag Teams are overused, literally one heel tag team in a sea of face tag teams
>Too many Women segments
>THEY KEEP TRYING TO PUSH JASETHY
>>
>>1991175
>They keep trying to push Seth
Seth lost all of his 20 Title matches since he returned and more than half of them he's lost clean
>>
>>1991194
That's my point

Jasethy gets skyrocketed to the main event since his return and is still getting pushed there
>>
>>1991194
the only ones he lost clean was summerslam and at battleground (though he wasn't pinned)
>>
>>1991194
The fuck are you watching? Lost by interference at clash, hell in a cell, and this raw. Seth has never lost clean in a title match except to Cena due to cenawinslol
>>
>>1991208
>Title matches Seth has lost clean since he returned

Ambrose MITB
Ambrose Raw
Ambrose SD
Balor SS
Owens CoC
Owens Raw
Owens Raw

Ratings have been downhill since Dean dropped the belt

So um yeah, it's AJetty who needs to fuck off
>>
>Ratings have been down since Dean dropped the belt
>HURR DURR IT'S DEAN FAULTS!!11

The state of neowooaspies

Even when they dragged Cena into the feud ratings couldn't bump

AJetty is a worse draw than DOLPH ZIGGLER


Hopefully the forced ass BMAJ meme stops now
>>
>>1991213
none of his matches with owens he lost clean. one of his matches against ambrose ended in a draw. and does mitb really count as a clean loss?
>>
>>1991213
>MITB
bait or 18+, the point of the MITB is that it usually isn't clean

>Ambrose RAW
Tie

>all 3 Owens
Jericho interfered

Nice try Carter
>>
>>1991216
>Ratings have been downhill since Dean dropped the belt
ahahahhaha

oh god.

Last week it was the highest since the brand split and the brand split was the reason it was that high that time.

This week was actually pretty good by all standards, SD average is 2.1 million viewers, they got 2.5. It's good, especially considering SD will have a ppv in 2 weeks.
>>
>>1991231
Last week has the Undertaker and Edge and you know that's the only reason why

Kill yourself
>>
>>1991231
>b-because the brand split just started

Yet they maintained UNTIL Styles won the belt, dumb wootists digging a hole lmao

Feels good to be the A+ Show

Simple fix.

Fire Becky.
Fire Ellsworth.
Fire Ambrose.
Put AJ over and in a serious feud.
Have Cena come back and do literally anything.
Bring The Revival up, make them tag champs.

It's not hard.
>>
>>1990499
if they slimed all the divas every episode i'm sure ratings would go up
>>
>>1991300
They did put AJ over and give him a serious feud, he failed to draw

Thankfully Taker will bury him at the Rumble

>>1990499
why did they decide make the champions of both shows look weak as fuck?
>>
>>1991427
So they can make the next champs look REALLY strong by booking them kindof strong
>>
Smackdown has no chance as long as deanetty and becketty are anywhere but the undercard or preshow stopper
