That's something WWE should do one time. Air an episode of Raw but also have it airing live on youtube as well. So they can really see just how many people watch live streams online
Just stop it please. Its okay if you like WWE as it is now good for you.
But by all means WWE isnt how i met your mother or some other popular show. In Europe and North America its unpopular.
Therefore the live streams viewers it will get isnt big. Really the only ones who watch Raw online are the hardcore/iwc wrestling fans.
WWE's revenue has gone up in recent years, but thats because of being more available in other countries, merchandising sales and multimedia.
The wrestling product itself is very unpopular. Because of societys opinion on wrestling + the writing of the show (which appeals to mostly kids not other age groups ) + lacking a star that draws like Austin and Rock.
The ratings raw gets is bigger than some shows.
But not bigger ratings than the shows that actually matters like How i met your mother, the simpsons and Two And a halfmen.
You don't need to be a scientist to understand that WWE's wrestling products popularity has gone down since 2006.
Fact is wrestling is unpopular today wheter you like it or not.
