WWE also hyped the appearance of WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels where he cut a promo in the final segment about the singles match that will see Triple H battle The Undertaker at WWE Super Show-Down where Kane will be the in the corner of “The Deadman” while “HBK” would be in the corner of “The Game.” The end of this segment saw Taker and Kane beatdown Michaels and Triple H.

Despite WWE putting some together some intriguing segments for the show, this episode faced some heavy competition. The show had to go up against ESPN which was averaging 13.2 million viewers for the Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs game as well as Big Bang Theory on CBS in hour one.
WWE will attempt to rebound next week and historically, will get a boost due to the fallout from the Super Show-Down pay-per-view event. But, it will be interesting to see if there is a jump in viewership with this trend of lowest viewership in history happening back to back weeks.
