Man, I can't believe Jericho came back to be stuck in a feud no one really wants to see. He should be facing someone like Undertaker. Instead, the WWE is wasting his time by making feud with CM Punk.
I agree, I always wanted to see Jericho/Taker, even not at WM, just a PPV...
Horrendous number, this is the lowest rated RAW on this week since 97, to get a number like that on the RTW is panic mode for them. Punk is the lowest drawing champion without competition since 95, And if he loses the title on the PPV, I'm waiting for Meltzer to do math including the terrible house show business for this time of the year, would be interesting where he is but it's top 5 without a doubt. I expected something bigger from HBK on his return, before I saw the rating, I was going to say that I expecting a 4.0 for the HBK/HHH segment which was 20 minutes without commercials. I'm sure they still did the peak of the show because Cena/Kane/Ryder/Eve is horrific, 12 minutes overrun or not, and their segment was great.
