Hour 1 holding onto 4 million viewers by a couple of fingernails.
WWE's going to have to deliver some goods at Summerslam to recapture even a fraction of the hoopla that the 1,000th Raw episode garnered. Until then, they're back on autopilot. The only match scheduled for Summerslam that feels like an attraction--partly because everything else has been played-out by now (if they could subtract Big Show from Cena/Punk in the future, that would help)--is Lesnar/Triple H and the storyline has little in the way of genuine momentum. It's like they're just filling the episodes out. Next week Lesnar will attack Shawn, cut to Triple H's angry face, Trips/Brock storyline finished aside from the fight they're going to have at Summerslam, of course. Next week, Cena will stand tall over a fallen Punk and a fallen Show. Del Rio will probably "injure" Sheamus. One more PTP/Air Truth segment. Probably a Jericho/Ziggler promo. Bryan wondering, along with the entire audience, what on earth he's doing facing Kane at Summerslam. That's about it.
