Raw's rating went down from a 3.9 to a 3.7 this week. Kind of surprising since this wan the night after a pay-per-view.

How long till we have a "When will Austin come back?" pool.

Forget Austin, I think it's time to bring back Stephanie on TV. Oh Yes it is.

And what was the buy rate of the PPV? The discussion here was as weak as I've ever seen for a PPV. Seems to me that, if few people buy the PPV, just as few people are going to be interested in the post-PPV fallout.

I was a watching the Raw after WrestleMania from earlier this year which set up Stephanie's final match. It featured a scary line:
"Millions of Americans tune in every week to see me."

Who knows about the buyrate, but the board was pretty dead on Sunday night.

The last time the WWF were getting ratings like these was back in 1997.

Yeah, about that time Nitro was pulling 3.8-4.0 a week and RAW was pulling 3.0-3.5. Right before the last wrestling boom. Lesnar will definately not be the next big thing since he kinda helped the ratings drop this week..

Jeez, make sure not to give the guy a couple weeks to catch on or anything. Better decide the rest of his career based on a week or two of ratings, and not take into account any other factors.

One guy isn't going to make or break the company.

ExtremeLuchador = BackStage Political vet holding young guys down... LOL

I truly don't think we could compare 1997 to now, in any television aspect. I know Meltzer always calls it an excuse, but it is said in the television industry a lot, that now with digital cable and dishes being commen place, it just slices the pie up a whole lot more. For example you have 500 people watching TV with 30 channels now you have the same 500 people watching 100 channels. Individual programs will get less viewers as a whole... Also read on a gallop poll that now being on the net has taken over watching TV in what people do on there off time.

As for the rating, I'd rather drop .2 and look long term then staying even with a bunch of stuff that's been done to death.

Last 40 minutes of Raw was as good a stretch as anything I've seen on WWE for a while with... making a good female storyline, you could get some female viewers to come back and cheer for a face, unlike last month... Operation getting Booker over, when the fans are screaming your lines before you do, THAT's a good sign... Brock/RVD - I think RVD is a star, and if you think Brock could be or not, at least it's someone that has potential to be one and young enough to prove doubters wrong.

I think right now we are in a period very much like the WWF circa 1997-98. Both times have a couple of stars on the brink of hitting it huge (Austin, Rock, Triple H; RVD, Booker, Lesnar) but needing that one big storyline to finally make it and be put ina position to bring the company back to prominence. The WWF just needs to stick with it like they did 5 years ago.

The speculation of Benoit in TNA seems like a long shot right now because, as Eddie said, if he were to walk he would have a veritable bounty waiting for him if he were to return to Japan. Plus, Japan's just more his style.
