Default WWE in PANIC MODE over Raw rating

Source: The Wrestling Observer

WWE is reportedly alarmed at the low rating that RAW received this week. The show did a 2.7 cable rating, the lowest number of the year, and the big topic of discussion in the company was that as opposed to Randy Orton's suspension.

While the rating was hurt by several factors including Memorial Day, the record-breaking debut of Hatfields & McCoys and the NBA playoffs, officials were reportedly concerned that the CM Punk/Daniel Bryan match lost viewers and that the Alberto Del Rio/Santino Marella match was the lowest quarter hour rating that the show has had in years.

So, does anyone have the actual quarter hour ratings instead of just verbal things Meltzer said? I'd like to see the official numbers if they are available, normally they should be around by today.

Blame commercials, as well. ADR/Santino didn't even last two minutes, making it tough to blame it for a quarter hour. Punk/Bryan wasn't much better in that regard. Part of the reason why the first quarter hour and the overrun do so well in the ratings is that they don't stick commercials into the middle.

Hopefully these falling ratings will make WWE take notice, I only hope they don't just jump to huge conclusion that its Daniel Bryan and Punk causing it and that its John Cena and Big Show.

Lol, how about instead of giving them a 15 minute match with 3 commercial breaks, you could let them cut promos on each other. When have bryan and punk cut any promos on RAW? If this report is true then they will probably be taken off the 2nd hour slot and back to the 2nd quarter slot in some tag team match that will lose viewers automatically. Punks promos do much better than his matches so they need to try that.

Hogan's only job when he was on top was against Warrior, and from mid-97 onwards Austin never lost clean. Before yes, when he wasn't on top yet. I don't think he ever lost clean after coming back from his neck injury except for his last match against Rock, and then you could very well argue that he wasn't the top guy anymore.

And your argument on why it didn't matter if Austin ever lost clean only reveals your personal prejudice to Cena.
The product being more directed to children isn't the issue here, booking is. For decades wrestling was a family oriented show in all of the USA (don't believe it, most wrestling shows aired on weekend mornings when children were usually watching) and that included *shock-gasp* children.

From a business standpoint aiming your product at children is a hell of a lot more lucrative because a child doesn't go to a wrestling show alone, at least one of his parents must also go, so that's two tickets for the price of one. Compare that to the generally anti-social, man-child, x-generation wannabe reject, slime of humanity that is the average "wrestling fan".
The so despised "casual fan" is what keeps any promotion above indy-level alive, so they should be the target audience.

Its cause they continue to force guys who can't get over down our throats each week. Outside of Punk, Bryan, Sheamus, Cena who is there really? Why should I care about the other guys on the roster creative has never given me a reason, Im speaking from a casual standpoint aswell. Theres so many talented guys they just don't get used or get used in ways that don't help them nor the product.

How is the WWE supposed to determine that fans are turning off the show due to Cena/Show when they're turning off during Bryan/Punk? That's a complete logic fail.

That being said, I don't blame Punk/Bryan at all. I blame terrible commercial placement during matches. Plotting shows around commercials would help out a lot more. Anything is better than twenty minute segment followed by a match starting immediately going to commercial and then going back to commercial before the match ends.
