Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
That breakdown is just damning for the show though. You only had a few jumps and only two that you can argue weren't because of the time period... one being baffling with Marella and Slater. But then, when the writing is so disconnected from the fundamental aspects of wrestling, this should come as no surprise.
What is really shocking though is that it's starting to get to the level where we can say TNA is competition... not because they are growing their audience in leaps and bounds, but because the WWE is hemmoraging its audience. It's quite possible that in 5 years the WWE could be on the verge of losing it's cable deal... what is sad though, I don't think any alarm bells are going off in the back that they are doing it wrong. Everything I read they are blaming something else other than horrendous booking for the dismal state of the product.
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
