Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

who wants to bet that Raw bombs in the ratings tonight? we should have a pool.. I say it will be 2.4

what has WWE done to promote tonight's show so far?

"This afternoon, mere hours before Raw kicks off in her home state of New Jersey, Raw General Manager AJ Lee posted the following on her official Twitter account"
@WWEAJLee: Been called to an emergency meeting with the WWE Board of Directors at #WWE Global HQ. #Confused #RAW"

that's it...

with all the social media they have, they can do so much to promote their show.. but they don't..

i am re-watching raws from the 1999, and even back then, they did a lot more to promote raw..
even at the beginning of the show, they would tell you at least 3 matches that would take place that night.
you don't even get that anymore, it does not give you a reason to tune in..

if you don't promote the show, or any of the matches, how can you expect people to tune in? you cannot blame wrestlers for people not tuning into their matches when they are not promoted..

so many times we watch Raw and a wrestler will come out, we won't know who he is fighting and it's not set up like an element of surprise, it's just WWE does not tell us.. they are too busy showing recaps and telling people to go on twitter and tout and facebook.
