Wrong.I think the only thing people remotely care about is Edge and even that is only temporary. Nobody cares about Drew, Seth, the women, Owens, etcetera. Even Orton I think people could care less about in and of himself.
I have gone back and that’s the conclusion I’ve come to. Unless Edge is there or an extension of Edge such as Christian or Beth I’m not seeing Randy’s numbers do much. For instance when it’s Show that is standing in for Edge the numbers with Randy aren’t good because people don’t buy Show as an actual extension of the Edge storyline.Wrong.
Orton is the star of that feud and the one that is drawing, Edge didn't do shit for the ratings.
Orton going back to the legend killer and punting people again is what drew. You can look back at the numbers and see for yourself.
The third hour definitely hurts, but even with two hours, their creative problems are more fundamental to the reasons why they're losing an audience. It's a direct result of a bad TV show with no primary protagonist people really care about.I hope that these ratings with Bruce being in charge convince Vince and the USA Network that it's worth getting rid of that third hour. It's worth the short-term financial loss in order for longer term gains.
Yeah, they do have those two keeping it afloat. They definitely need people who can do more than that. A lot of their writing just feels too low effort, even by WWE standards.I think it is Seth that is keeping the numbers above 1.8 million.
Orton is also helping.
The rest need to up their games.
