It's interesting how the ratings continue to get terribly worse no matter who you push on top and no matter what's worthwhile on the show.

It's almost like the company needs to sort its shit together with its management and 'creativity.'

Imagine being one of the few programs offering new content right now and you have millions of people wanting a distraction from the outside world and you can't offer a program they should be willing to ge into

I doubt we will see a regular show until mid-late May at the soonest. After the first week we have seen a drop each week. Maybe we see a bump next week but I doubt it will last past next week.
May is exceedingly optimistic, given many sports leagues are thinking June at the earliest. Yes Vince will try to run shows, but crowdless shows specifically will go on for most of the rest of the year. This pandemic won't be contained in 2 months, especially not in the US.

The whole year is a complete write-off imo. Anyone who gets a push or title reign during this time I feel bad for.

It feels like they don't want to do anything too big or their plans fell through because of the virus. Most of the Raw mania feuds feel unimportant. Some of the stories are just bad and some are non-existent.

Until we don't have treatment or/and a vaccin we will not come back to the life we had before the start of this pandemic.

This is for every country in the world.

Even when we get back to "normal", many companies will be hurt bad by this layoff. WWE may be one of them, though their saudi and fox deals may still get them through for now.

"News shows dominated cable, with RAW coming in at #31 for the night. However, if you take out the news shows, it was still the most watched programming on cable. In 18-49, the first two hours were only behind two episodes of Love & Hip Hop, while the third hour was #7 in 18-49."

From what I saw WM was basically a house show that maintained the status quo. Expect ratings to further decline. How low can they go? Their decline is the most entertaining thing about the WWE these days.

DAT POST MANIA BUMP HOOH HAH LMAO

Keep doing what you're doing Vince. I can't wait to see the numbers continue to tank over the summer. Another prediction: all the viewers they have and will lose during this pandemic won't come back.

Nobody should be proud of any wrestler getting pushed right now.

Horrendous really but news is dominating as you'd expect. Can't really judge ratings at all in this climate.

I hope people keep the same energy for the Wednesday night shows since they just did the worst numbers they ever did just last week.

Also, LOL at the people who said "big" guys will draw more. As the few folks on here with brains have been saying for awhile now, they're all in the same boat these days.
