• Wednesday Night War Could Negatively Affect SmackDown

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, the Wednesday Night War between NXT & AEW could negatively affect SmackDown on FOX on Friday nights.

Below is what Meltzer said:

“Look, if the ratings aren’t good then [Fox will] be upset, but they’re very confident that the ratings will be good and they’re not upset right now. Can they get upset? Yes, they can.

If this thing, let’s say the thing (SmackDown Live) does a solid 2 million viewers every week — I don’t think they paid that amount of money expecting two million, so and look, it’s Friday night maybe that’s what it’ll do.

Another thing too is if you go in there before and you have the Monday and Wednesday [now] where let’s say people are watching three hours on Monday and then Wednesday, that’s five hours. By the time it comes to Friday you want to go out and have fun. So, that may play into it.

All these shows may negatively impact SmackDown.”
