Think people on here freak out more about the ratings than WWE themselves do. They seem more concerned with their social media score and shit than ratings nowadays.
Then what about well after the boom was over in the 2000s and streams & technology were really coming into play? They were still getting 3s at WORST when they were competing with MNF, new fall shows, etc. Part of this time was when they were on Spike which from what I heard wasn't available to everybody in the country like USA is today, as well as SC and Rock both MIA. The NFL and other shows have access to what they can watch online as well. It's not an excuse.
Maybe when the product doesn't improve by the late fall and ratings are barely above 2.0(I know it's not too likely but still) maybe they will care.
