How Vince McMahon views the recent Raw rating slide

A lot was made about Raw falling in the ratings recently due to the NBA Playoffs. However, Vince McMahon isn’t using basketball as an excuse. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that McMahon is blaming the product more than the outside circumstances on the recent decline in the ratings. In terms of the writing staff, virtually everyone fears their position isn’t safe as a result of the recent ratings numbers.

    And once again Vince misses the mark as to why his product isn’t getting high ratings (which they are still high, but not high enough I suppose)

  2. Jamie says:

    Just when you think he’s losing it, he starts talking sense again. Good on you Vinny!

    Good. Maybe they’ll actually start trying.

  4. ~J* says:

    wwe should hold a tough enough contest for writers…let fans and others tryout and see what happens, you’re welcome mcmahon!!!!

    Nothing is going to change in any real way, at least until Vince is no longer in the picture. Even then I don’t have much hope, since Stephanie will still be in charge of whatever they’re calling booking these days.

    Imagine working for this madman?!

  7. Guled says:

    Vince will do whatever it takes to get the job done!
    doh it’s just me blowing smoke up his ass.

    Maybe hire WRESTLING writers?

  9. Sayer_of_the_Laws says:

    Or maybe it’s a made up bs report with nearly everyone except the first poster mostly being a troll that doesn’t actually care about wrestling at all?

    I suggest some people go brain shopping.

  10. Agent Cooper says:

    That’s a correct interpretation from Vince. If the WWE actually had a fresh engaging product, people would be watching it instead of the sporting event excuse of the week. The reality is that it’s a boring product that’s increasingly becoming irrelevant to the mainstream. Nothing interesting or notable ever happens in the WWE anymore. There’s never any discernible reason to tune in.

  11. dave says:

    Sayer of the Laws, you need to figure out what “troll” means or the appropriate time to call someone a troll.

    Secondly, this report is neither confirmed or rebuffed.

    If true, it’s good that he recognises the product needs a massive shot in the arm.

    But the product has been stale, with the few sporadic exceptions, for a decade now, so why would he suddenly change his mind?

    Has his Cena Tinted Glasses finally broken? It seemed he was letting the Cena heat/love drive the product forward with tickets, merch and the matches with the Rock produced a lot of cash and interest but Cena can’t do it all. A decade at the top and he’s going to break down sooner or later, likely sooner.

    Differiently from TNA, no stupid excuses, respect for Vince

  13. James says:

    I stopped watching as I couldn’t take it anymore so I keep up here on Gerweck. The show is terrible 95% of the time, and even the 5% doesn’t compare to anything memorable from years past.

  14. AJ Starr says:

    Someone…. what are you smoking? TNA doesn’t blame lower ratings on anything, because there’s nothing TO blame it on. Unlike WWE, TNA hasn’t fallen over 50% from the average they had back in their heyday.

    Like others say; You put crap on the TV, people find something else to watch.

    I used to love House. Did I finish season 8? Nope. Why? Was total garbage.
