I would have never guessed it but the Iron Sheik was right all along. "Hapewie stupid American hapewie"... I'm not even going to comment on the McMahons or the sh*t truck but I thought it was a poor showing even with the guys I do like (ie Angle and Zach).
I just don't get it at all, I can see sometimes when WWE does something crazy and gets a rating that I don't agree with. I sit back and say "I don't like it but I can see how that can grab someones attention" (ie Kane-Shane from this past Monday and talking about it over and over again)... But SD wasn't even over the top short term thinking eye-catching TV. This Thursday Smackdown was just boring and bad. So bad that even Dean R couldn't think of a WHAT WORKED ~ comment. And he always finds something interesting even if it's only in his odd imagination

1wrestling This week’s edition of Smackdown rebounded very well, doing a 3.6 broadcast rating, with a five share, according to Nielsen Media Research. That was way up from last week’s 2.9. The highest rated quarter hour of the show was from 9:15 to 9:30, where the show did a 3.8
9:15-9:30, trying to think back to SD (oooow still scary). I think that is Zach/Shannon and maybe the Benoit/APA-Bashams/Albert.
I've read security is ready in force at arenas in case anything untoward happens. There was the story of Wrestlemania VII being moved because of threats of a sniper getting to Sgt Slaughter during the height of his Iraqi sympathiser angle.
