RAW again under 4. They had to curtain off the upper bowl. That panic button has to look awfully tempting now.

Yes I know its smarky. Hey, here's what I see. As I said I went to watch the PPV at a local bar (BW3/Mentor). Smallest crowd I can remember for a WWF/E PPV. All the tables/booths were still filled, but the pool room was pretty open.

After Austin's match, the place cleared -out- noticeably. For the first time I can remember there were some tables and booths unoccupied. I'm sorry, but Austin is carrying this fed on his back. They -have- to put the belt on him. Now. If only to try to keep the asses in the seats thru the whole show. You can't get others over if people aren't watching.

And have him feud with Nash for the belt. I might even tease that out to be the WMX9 main event. Its a fresh matchup of people with good -mic skills-. I know Nash can't wrestle but he's not a grandpa like Hogan and this nWo/Austin thing needs to go somewhere. Building up Nash after his promo works for me and is 100x better than the crap we've been seeing.

Sorry for the smarkiness. I'm just annoyed that they'll be outta business by the end of 2003 at the rate they're going.

Pandas are people too!!

Yep, Raw went down just like Angry Johnny's momma in a biker bar. Oh well.

But Austin's not carrying the fed....You've got RVD...and judging from the pop he got after winning the belt monday, I'd bet he's in line for a good push.

I just hope this low rating wakes up the people in charge and makes them realize that SOMETHING has to change. Poor ratings and attendance in 1996-1997 led to the attitude era, a completely new direction and product for the WWF. Hopefully we can now anticipate a great shift like that which will result in new stars carrying the promotion.

Caring is the first step towards disappointment.

Remember when WCW was bought out, and everyone was bitching and moaning, and saying Vince always did better when he was under pressure? Here's his pressure. His competition is his ratings. It's go time.

I just hope they don't blame this on the roster split, because man, I think it's one of their better ideas in a while...

Ben Miller posted a good column at the Observer site about why this ratings decline was inevitable the way the split was handled: (I don't know how to link, sorry).

I like Kurt Angle and Kanyon. But I love Maven, and can't figure out why...

Not a chance. That's the WORST DVD ever. As far as the topic, IMO, John Cena was NOT pushed down our throats. Randy Orton WAS. Cena got over eventually after his gimmick change and then he started showing people that he was charismatic.
