WWE SmackDown ratings soar, popular reality show Shark Tank is first on TV

Last Friday’s edition of WWE SmackDown achieved great success in the ratings against stiff competition.

The show was headlined by a marquee matchup between The Bloodline’s Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. WWE presented fans with an incredibly compelling story between the two former best friends and their match on Friday night. Unfortunately, the match ended in a disqualification after The Bloodline intervened and attacked Kevin Owens.

In addition to Owens vs. Zayn, SmackDown also featured an Intercontinental Championship match between Gunther and Braun Strowman. The Ring General had tried to evade the monster of monsters but fought him in the square circle last Friday. Gunther emerged victorious via pinfall after planting Strowman with a powerbomb.

According to Brandon Thurston of WrestleNomics, SmackDown garnered 2.326 million viewers with an excellent rating of .55 in its key demographic of 18-49 year olds. The main demo rating on Friday closed the popular entrepreneurial-themed reality show Shark Tank.

WWE Hall of Famer DDP appears on Shark Tank

Diamond Dallas Page was due to appear on Shark Tank back in 2014 but had doubts about what they were asking of him.

Speaking to former WWE Superstar Chris Jericho on his Talk is Jericho podcast, DDP revealed that he initially turned down an offer to appear on the show after being asked to limit his social media activities.

“I said, you know Steve, I once let one person control my destiny and it didn’t work out well for me. We’ll make it or fail, but we’ll do it in our choices – Tell Shark Tank… Love the show, appreciate the opportunity, we’ll stop by! So we did it!” said DDP. [H/T: Inside The Ropes]

DDP added that Shark Tank quickly recalled him and relinquished the control they wanted over his brand before his appearance. The 66-year-old appeared on the show during season five but did not receive any offers for DDP Yoga.
