WWE SmackDown Debut Rating, Jake Roberts Update, More

– AT&T Universe listed the line-up for last night’s No Mercy pay-per-view as King Booker vs. Bobby Lashley, The Undertaker vs. Mr. Kennedy and the debut of MVP. They obviously got 2008 mixed up with 2006.

– Wrestling legend Terry Funk was advertised to wrestle on Saturday night in Robersonville, NC but didn’t perform due to a knee injury. Jake Roberts was brought in to replace Funk, in a six-man cage match with Ryan Sawyer and Kevin Payne vs. Steve Corino, CW Anderson and Ricky Landell. The show drew over 1,000 fans.

– The debut for Friday Night SmackDown on MyNetwork TV looks to have done a 2.4 rating, based on Nielsen’s fast national ratings. The company was obviously pleased with the number as it was the highest rated show in the history of the network.
