What was in that first hour lmfao?

Can't remember the last time the first hr was the lowest. It rarely happens.

Is there a reason to explain it? Goldberg's return in the third hour, competition against other shows?

People are interested in the "Who killed Roman" angle. I've been saying these shows need to implement cliff hangers for a long time, now if they could only execute them better.

Nah, it was Goldberg. That was the thing people were talking about on social media. Only thing which trended worldwide.

I doubt that, he did nothing for ratings when his appearance was advertised for Smackdown prior to the Saudi show.

"Who killed Reigns" was a consistent thread throughout the show, and the viewership stayed consistent throughout. I'm led to believe it was that.

Funny how every time they have promoted a womens tag titles match there have been an increase in ratings from the week before. Sadly now the Iiconics are no longer the champions and they can't have that bump anymore :grin2:

Good to have you back.

I’m a little surprised the ratings have snuck back up closer to the 2.5MM range versus being more in the 2.0MM range. Getting the belt off of Seth may have helped after all.

It’s Heyman’s booking. Not that the shows have been great, but they are better than the lifeless stretches of programming over the last four years that caused WWE to shed viewers. It’s a long road back, but a year from now victory for the company will be if total viewership remains static.

Nah, I don’t really buy that. Vince books these shows and the quality isn’t really improving at all anyways. The difference is adding star quality over the last few months like Taker, Brock, and HBK not to mention the reunion show. The current stars can’t draw a dime and by now we all know it.

I will disagree. Lashley/StrowmanStrowman/TitanTron, Maria Kinellas emasculating her husband, Who Attacked Roman Reigns all have hallmarks of Paul Heyman ideas. Vince is likely adding input, but these are actual continuing storylines. Basic level stuff, but a step up from what we saw previously - Person A challenged Person B, there’s a match, rinse and repeat.

The key to any WWE turnaround is establishing discernible characters on their roster. They’re taking baby steps in that direction with Heyman taking creative reign, whereas previously 90% of the roster were completely generic everpeople who had no clear motivations and differences.

Bottom line, the company was flirting with dropping below 2M unopposed before Heyman took over, and they’re closer to 2.5M now. Can they keep that when the NFL starts - that will be the test.

Vince has been doing the Braun feats stuff forever. The Maria stuff seems right down his alley as well. Those may well be Heyman ideas but they only got on screen because they fit Vince’s taste. Just because Vince is the booker doesn’t mean 100% of what we see are his ideas. It just means 100% of what we see are ideas that Vince likes. Nothing has changed creatively except for the person or persons having to pitch stuff to Vince that he will approve.

I totally agree, they have been bringing big names lately so naturally people turn on to see it. fans were chanting Goldberg before he even came out on the last show I heard. so people knew he was gonna be there, these days they bring back old timers so naturally people will tune to see if there is any of them.
