New Day's WWE status; Bad news for 205 Live Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/16/2017 at 02:10 PM
- With a New Day "coming soon" video shown on Smackdown Live this week, there has been talk about keeping the team off television until Kofi Kingston is ready to return from injury. Kingston is expected to be out of action for several weeks following ankle surgery.
- According to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, 205 Live's viewership over the past several months has been "really bad" compared to the shows that are beating it on the WWE Network. Meltzer noted that the taped NXT shows regularly beat the live 205 shows and WWE should consider having 205 taped before Smackdown Live starts. Fans have been continuing to leave the arena after Smackdown ends and there has been a general lack of crowd heat for the 205 shows.
