-- The March 22nd edition of WWE SmackDown drew a 2.11 (2.1) cable rating, with 3.0 million viewers. This number is up from last week's show that drew a 1.82 rating with 2.4 million viewers. It was the highest rating for the show since the February 8th episode topped three million viewers. The biggest reason for the jump was the show's key male demographics; the episode had the highest rating among males 18 - 34 in 2013. All of the demographics were up significantly from last week. The show ranked #3 among cable shows for the night in overall viewers behind the NCAA tournament and Disney, #4 among males 18 - 34 and #3 among males 18 - 49. The show was up from a 1.80 rating in the same week last year, though the male demos were the same.

EX-WWE STAR X-PAC
Oops! I Tore My Butthole
Former WWE star X-Pac tore himself a new one last weekend ... literally ... after one of his signature wrestling moves took a BLOODY turn.
According to his ex-GF's Instagram, Pac -- real name Sean Waltman -- was wrestling at an indie event in Minneapolis Saturday night when he performed his Bronco Buster ... a move where he leaps into a straddle position on some guy's face (below).
Problem is ... the other guy moved -- putting X's nuts and anus on a collision course with the ring's turnbuckle. It didn't end well for X-Pac.
X managed to finish the match after the injury, but when he got back to his hotel room he noticed a lot of blood coming from his nether regions ... and wisely went to the hospital.
X-Pac underwent surgery for a torn anus and was released today.
By the way, he also lost the match -- sooo ... zero upside here.
