- This week's WWE SmackDown, featuring Daniel Bryan's first appearance since finally being cleared to return to the ring for WWE, drew 2.888 million viewers. This is up 4% from last week's 2.771 million viewers and is the best blue brand viewership of 2018. This is also the best SmackDown viewership going back to the April 11th, 2017 episode.

This week's show featured Bryan's return to TV announced ahead of time but the news on his in-ring future didn't break until a few hours before the show. No matches were announced ahead of time.

SmackDown was #5 in viewership for the second week in a row on cable, behind Fixer Upper, Hannity, Rachel Maddow and Tucker Carlson. SmackDown was #1 for the night in the 18-49 demographic, also for the second week in a row.

In comparison, Monday's RAW drew 3.327 million viewers for The Ultimate Deletion, down from last week's 3.352 million viewers.

- Matt Hardy teased on Twitter that we may see more matches like The Ultimate Deletion from The Hardy Compound in WWE. He also made some comments on Bray Wyatt that may give an idea of potential storyline plans for Wyatt now that The Great War between the two has ended.
