In this case, too low ratings might make USA Network say "You are not worth the price you are asking for". So WWE will either move or have to ask for less money per show. Which in the end will hurt them financially.
However, Raw´s contract with the USA Network doesnt go out until 2014. So they have 2 years left.

As for this weeks ratings, I honestly expected something like 2.9. Considering last weeks show did 3.1 and this weeks was taped.


Raw is USA's highest rated show by far and it's a top 5, top 10 on cable every week so USA would be dumb to get rid of it.

We've yet to see how he does in PPV which is where I suspect he will be most effective though so I'd hold off on calling him a failure.

I think it will end up being the same scenario as Survivor Series and Mania where the ratings heading in are rubbish but the buys were up. Why? I think it's down to the fact that the older/other fans who are providing the extra PPV buys are either people who watch every week but don't buy the show and on this occasion do buy the show, or the other scenario is people who don't watch every week, hear that Lesnar is fighting Cena and that's all they care about so they buy the PPV. That's where the extra buys, if there are any, will come from imo. I thought this Lesnar/Cena program would do big numbers across the board and so far that hasn't happened which has surprised me tbh. I'd be even more surprised if the ER buyrate doesn't go up to some degree as well.

The thing with the rest of the other PPVs is that it's the same audience watching every week, give or take, but they aren't buying the PPV at the end of it all. In fact, less people are buying than ever before. The only times they managed to make things go up was with a red hot angle(MITB), Rock's return to the ring(Survivor Series) and of course Rock/Cena and HIAC(Mania 28).

Like I said, interdasting lol.

Look at last year. Punk's shoot didn't drive ratings up, but the storyline produced an improved buyrate for MITB.
Survivor Series and MITB buyrate didn't go up that much. It doesn't matter how hot an angle or worker is, as long as the PPV isn't named Summerslam, Royal Rumble, or Wrestlemania not many people will buy it.

If someone has the rating information and PPV buys you could pretty easily do an analysis to see if ratings are an adequate predictor of buys. I don't think they are, but I don't think that declining ratings are a good thing or "nothing to worry about" either.

I'm pretty sure if it wasn't for Lesnar returning, the average RAW ratings would be below 3.0 right now.

They didn't go up much but they went up at a time when every other PPV was going down. That's a success imo.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

Right, why is that funny? It isn't, in fact it's pretty sad. He's a UFC draw, not a WWE draw. But that's judging by TV numbers. Can't say much until we know the ER number.
