– The August 13th episode of WWE’s Friday Night SmackDown scored a 1.6 broadcast rating with 2.691 million viewers. This is the third straight week SmackDown has done a 1.6.
– Teddy Hart is trying to get back in with Mexico’s AAA promotion. It’s safe to say that his attempts at getting a deal with WWE have fallen through.
