Tuesday’s edition of WWE SmackDown Live from Everett, WA at the Angel of the Winds Arena averaged 1.841 million viewers, down from 2.137 million the previous week, according to ShowbuzzDaily. As a result, this marks the lowest viewed episode of the blue branded show of the year.

Despite WWE putting some together some intriguing segments for the show, this episode faced some heavy competition. The show had to go up against the State of the Union on several channels that drew big numbers. It also went up against Curse of Oak Island on History, Rachel Maddow Show, and Project Blue Book.

Matches that took place on this show include Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura (w/Lana) vs. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows, Randy Orton vs. Mustafa Ali, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville vs. Carmella & Naomi and The IIconics, and Jeff Hardy vs. Daniel Bryan.

WWE hyped the Elimination Chamber PPV and the matches taking place at that show. In case you missed the show, you can check out the 4 takeaways from it here.

WWE will attempt to rebound with next week’s episode, which should be interesting to see what number it pulls in. As of this writing, there are no matches or segments announced for the show.
