Tuesday’s “WWE SmackDown 1000” tagged in 2.55 million total viewers last night, the best for a “SmackDown Live” episode since April 24.

The 1,000th overall episode of the USA Network show included a tag team title change and the return of WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio, who is pictured above delivering his 6-1-9 finishing maneuver to United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura.

The jam-packed pair of hours also featured the rare (these days) Vince McMahon cameo, and reunited former wrestling faction Evolution (Triple H, Randy Orton, Ric Flair and Batista).
