SmackDown earned 2.626 million viewers, which is just down from 2.627 million viewers last week. The number falls in line with SmackDown’s rating for 2017.
The show featured Mickie James get revenge on Becky Lynch, Baron Corbin send Dean Ambrose into stage equipment, and Randy Orton declined to face Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania.
This was the first SmackDown since Elimination Chamber, where Bray and Naomi won gold. The next time SmackDown is on pay per view will be for WrestleMania.
