That's the rest of the list. I've only ever heard of American Dad and the NHL. The rest is irrelevant trash. Cable is dying, so being at the top of that pitiful heap is not enough, and WWE and its partners know that.
You have never heard of Teen Mom? That show is a train wreck

Honestly, they have better characters on Love and Hip Hop:Atlanta than WWE, lol

No of course not. We all know Drew is going to win the match but it is a better match with Braun Strowman in it. Also Nikki Cross winning last night. Why did Nikki Cross win last night? Why was she even in the match to begin with? I love Nikki Cross but we all know she will be back off TV for 3 months after that. You don't do things like that if they aren't leading somewhere. The Revival,so what if they want to leave now? It would be possible to maybe change their mind so they might resign later. No they choose to humiliate them every second until it is time for them to leave killing any chance of that happening.
Yeah, sure. I'll get on the phone and call Vince to tell him TrulyJulieRokks doesn't like Raw and that it needs to change. I'm sure all the other members of WF will also use their direct line to Vince to let him know you don't like certain wrestlers, which is the reason Raw has low numbers.

What's the point of your rant? You're as repetitive and predictable as an episode of Raw at this point. You don't like people, you do like people, you think you know the reasons Raw is dropping in ratings. So does everyone else on this forum.

You have the right to not watch WWE. You are allowed to watch other wrestling. You can't repeatedly watch WWE and complain about the exact same thing and think WWE is the problem. After a certain point you are the problem. You've identified that you don't like something and you keep doing it. I don't like punching myself in the face so I don't do it. Stop punching yourself in the face and telling everyone you don't like punching yourself in the face.
Oh so you liked what they did there and would be happy if every RAW from here on out was that exact way? Also you aren't much grasping the point of this site are you?

I would never suggest illegally streaming WWE TV, but honestly, does WWE really warrant you sitting through 3 hours of garbage every Monday and Tuesday? - Lil B

They're nowhere close to the point where no cable channel would want them, if anything USA Network would probably collapse without Raw.

The other shows on that list really speak to the state of civilization.

As for walking up Vince and company, the only thing that's going to do that is money issues and that's not coming anytime soon.

Remember when Raw would pull a 5 and Nitro would pull a 4.5? My how times have changed.

I only watch Raw when I'm traveling for business, but 3 hours is a long freaking time for any TV show. Especially having to wait for the main event which goes on at 11:30ish. I honestly think the biggest problem with Raw is that it's 3 hours long and its main audience (people in EST and CST) have to be up so late for the main event.



Also, for the OP: WWE is not "in trouble." Not yet, at least.

You do realize that Raw was #1-3 on cable this past Monday right?

More people watched a taped Raw than the live NHL conference final, double nearly. Are you saying no channel will offer the NHL a tv deal when their contract is up?

Long term Zayn is much better option than McIntyre or Strowman as he is better worker, talker and plays a babyface much better than both. Zayn right now is light years a more interesting character than Strowman or McIntyre

Irrelevant. Raw was #1-3 on cable Monday night for a taped show on strongest night of the week and it's off season for WWE now too.

A year later and the IWC still can't get their head around why NBC and Fox offered the $1 billion each. It's because their programming is #1-3 every Monday and Tuesday on cable most weeks of the year.

20+ years ago when Bill fucking Clinton was President and before 9/11 happened. Wrestling fans need to stop living 20 years in the past when there was less channels, no Youtube, no Hulu, no DVR, no live streaming, no smartphones and there is no boom period in pro wrestling since. Alta-vista was the prominent internet search engine during period you referenced.

WCW lost $60+ million in 2001 alone, WWE had to move Wrestlemania back to smaller venues in 2004 when their popularity collapsed and that's 15 years ago now.

One time the WWWF could sell out MSG every 2 weeks in the late 60s/70s, an achievement not possible during Monday night War yet there are no Bruno fans online gloating weekly

To be fair, it's not as if Vince is doing most of the talent hiring. Hell, there's an outside chance he still doesn't know what TNA is.
