— In an update from our earlier report, Friday’s SmackDown scored a 1.91 (1.9) cable rating. That’s basically even with last week’s 1.92 (1.9) cable rating. It ranked #2 in overall viewers among cable shows for the night behind Toy Story 3 on Disney Channel, and was #1 in all key male demographics.
— As expected, AW’s gimmick was toned down big time on RAW this week.
— Rosa Mendes did not appear on RAW this week for obvious reasons.
— Two RAW brand matches were taped Monday night at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas for this week’s episode of WWE Superstars:
* WWE United States Champion Santino Marella vs. Michael McGillicutty in a non-title match
* Zack Ryder vs. Tensai
No pre-taping dark match was held.
