WWE is not just a T.V show. There are so many things like buyrates, Merchandise sales, DVD and media, ticket sales etc. Even Vince has stated that ratings arent a big deal to begin with, and he said that in fucking 1997 when WWE was not a puplic traded company.
Yea, and that was also when WWF was getting killed by WCW. I bet he didn't have a 'ratings don't matter' attitude when WWF was killing WCW and ratings were sky high during the attitude era. In fact, the 'attitude era' itself was a response to the WWF losing the ratings war to WCW. It funny how ratings only matter when they are good.

Plus, if you don't think ratings are related to buyrates, ticket sales, dvds etc you are crazy. The more people that are watching your product the more people will buy dvds, merch, tickets, ppvs. It's simple logic
