Notes on Big Swole, Eric Ryan, and a possible Smackdown expansion

Aug 1, 2021 - by Steve Gerweck

– While speaking on the Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that WWE actually discussed the idea of adding a third hour onto Smackdown and airing the final hour on FS1. Ultimately, the company decided to pass on the idea.

– Congratulations to Big Swole on becoming the new Battle Club Pro Women’s Champion last night by defeating Tasha Steelz.

– Congratulations Eric Ryan for winning King of the Deathmatches 2021 last night and becoming the back to back winner having won last year also

    A third hour of Smackdown would great for advert breaks and would mean a bigger roster for the SmackDown brand especially during draft time. But it would also be bad for the viewers whom already consider Raw to be too long with its weekly 3 hours length.

    @Snip
    You really don’t watch much WWE do you? A third hour would mean nothing more than time for one match and 10-15 backstage skits/interviews and 3 or so recraps of what happened in hour 1 and 2.
