WWE SmackDown has been killing it when it comes to the ratings and they did a great job, once again, this Friday.

Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens battled again and it was Reigns who was sent through a table. Adam Pearce also played a huge role as he came out to fight Paul Heyman before being beaten up by Reigns.

Further, we saw Asuka and Charlotte team up. Big E vs Apollo Crews was all set for the Intercontinental title while Cesaro also put on quite a show.

There was another big event on SmackDown this week. Bianca Belair had been a target for Bayley in recent weeks and the pair took part in an incredible obstacle course challenge.

This would be an increase of just about 0.9% while the demo rating was 0.6 in the 18-49 segment. Last week the demo rating was 0.67 and the only show that beat SmackDown on this demo rating this time around was Shark Tank.

SmackDown has been on quite a charge in recent months and they seems to be keeping the ship steady while Raw and NXT suffers a lot of poor ratings.
