  1. By WOW times are rough, posted

    I am a bit confused as to why this seems like a big deal. If you take 20 and divide it by 7 you get roughly 3 million. Hardly the numbers to get excited over, no offense.

    RAW is getting a 2.87. That means the direction is heading into the toilet. The flagship show is below a 3 which is scary considering most people are winding down summer vacations and heading in doors to get ready for back to school and WWE is still struggling to get viewers.

    The divas show dropped 6% from last week.

    Very misleading article.

    Would love for Vince to get his head out of his rear end and put some good shows on and get the cape off of cena and maybe people will come back.
