SD Rating Reveals Bad News For Ironman Match Fans

Last night's SmackDown! scored a 3.2 national rating with a five share.

Obviously, that number is not too strong. WWE tried an experiment for last night's show, by featuring a sixty-minute ironman match on free TV, taking up half the TV time. Although the reviews for the match have been nothing but positive amongst internet fans, it seems that the concept did not totally intrigue casual fans.

Assuming that more detailed numbers do not reveal something to the contrary, it seems that WWE officials will have some justification as to prevent long wrestling matches from airing on free TV, as this one did not draw a desirable rating. Thus, you may not see another ironman match on free WWE TV for a long-time, if ever.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Well Vince gave you what you wanted....And you didn't even bother watchin' it...Stupid smarks...Now you'll go and cry when Vince puts A-Train in a 10 minute skit...And wish for another Iron Man match....HHH only shows up once on RAW and hits a 4.5 on the ratings...TRUTH WAS RIGHT....

Fuck the casual fan. They ruined wrestling. All they want to see is sex. The iron man match was great and if people don't like it they don't deserve to be called a fan. As I've said before true wrestling fans are hard to come by in this day of age.

I think Vince went the wrong way about it he just seems to know no middle 30 minute matches yeah but there is no way you are going to get a casual fan to sit and watch the same two people wrestle

the whole point of an iron match is to pit the top two performers together for a long period of time cuz most of eddies or edges matches last 20 minutes

But we all know the outcome, it's going to fail, because the average consumer doesn't want to watch a great technical match. They want to be entertained, if he ran his company like the smarks wanted him too. He'd be giving out PPV's for a Penny, like TNA .

I for one am looking forward to the match and I know it'll be the best Ironman match since Hunter VS Rock (Thats right I fucking said it HBK vs Bret was a snooze fest for about 30 minutes...But it was still classic...But it wasn't what marks, make it out to be. Hunter and Rock put on a masterpiece for 1 hour, until Undertaker fucked it up. But the sad thing is, Smarks bashed the match before giving them a chance, and it became forgettable before it *the match* was even done...And whats sadder, Smarks still won't admit The Rock and Hunter out did Bret and HBK...Pathetic).


Nobody but hardcore wrestling fans (and it's not many of us out there, contrary to Internet Belief) is going to watch this thing. It's sad that this FLOP might kill it for the great wrestlers, like Benoit and Eddy. Because believe me if this Flops, Mcmahon will not try to please his 'loyal' fans again, when it comes to concentrating on wrestling more then entertainment, anyway. He'll avoid all plans, to give wrestling more attention, and he'll focus on the Popular Audience again...And he should.

So make the most of it, smarks... Or you won't get a chance to see a great PURE Wrestling match on regular TV (Maybe even pay per view) again.

SD rating's dont deliver because of two thing's, UPN is not on basic cable and it's not a live show, spoiler's kill rating's, the WWE need's to put SD on TNN or USA and make it a LIVE show, rating's would rise gaurenteed.

FOX tried to get Smackdown last year, but they wanted a live show every week. That would've cost WWE too much money, they would spend millions a week to run 2 live shows. Thus, WWE would not make a profit.

I hate the damn fly by night fans who want to see everything on a wrestling show except wrestling. I think the match was great,matter of fact I thought the whole show was good.Some damn good wrestling going on with Eddie and Chavo also.

So True, So damn true. Then again if SmackDown! didnt have internet spoilers or if it was on a a free to air cable channel then the rating might pick up as RC stated. Besides Matt Hardy is carrying SmackDown, They need to get better fueds and better talent because not even Mattitude himself can save this sinking ship.

I agree with Rock, if UPN were a more accessable station and SD was live versus being taped, the ratings would have been higher. Spoilers kinda kill the ending sometimes and you just don't feel like watching the whole damn thing.
