The WWE SmackDown! brand starts their overseas tour today with stops in Italy and Spain. Starting tonight, they will having a house show in Turin, Italy, a show tomorrow (June 10) in Florence, Italy, a show in Badalona, Spain on June 11, and a show in Madrid, Spain on June 12. If you are attending any of these live events, we’d love for you to write up a recap of the show for us and send it along to webmaster@WrestleHeat.com.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the official announcement of the winner of Tough Enough, which bled into the 9PM hour drew a 3.98 quarter hour rating with 5.99 million viewers. While both RAW and Tough Enough are obviously WWE shows, many people tracking Tough Enough note that viewers that watch it aren’t necessarily regular RAW viewers. Since it bled to the top of the hour, in addition with RAW viewers tuning in, it drew a strong rating. This rating also helped it make the first hour of RAW stronger than the second.
