Coming off a loss at this past Sunday’s WWE Elimination Chamber PPV, John Cena made his return to WWE Smackdown and was able to score a key win over WWE Champion AJ Styles. The win resulted in Cena being added to the WWE Fastlane main event which will now be a Six-Pack Challenge match for the WWE Title.
According to ShowBuzz Daily, John Cena’s return to the Blue Brand helped the WWE Smackdown viewership number as the show averaged 2.692 million viewers, up from last week’s 2.613 million viewership average.
This week’s WWE Smackdown, which also featured Baron Corbin vs Sami Zayn and Shinsuke Nakamura vs Aiden English, ranked #6 in overall cable TV viewership for the night and for the second consecutive week ranked #1 in the 18-49 demographic.
