– WWE programming continued to suffer in the face of the NBA Playoffs this week. Monday’s episode of WWE Raw drew a 0.91 rating in the 18 – 49 demographic and 2.615 million viewers, down 7% and 5% from last week’s 0.97 demo rating and 2.751 million viewers. Both metrics represented 2017 lows for the show, dipping below the 0.93 and 2.696 million from two weeks ago. It also represented the lowest points since a 0.90 rating and 2.6 million viewers back on Halloween of last year.



So.... needs more Jinder?





Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

Finn a Paul Heyman Guy? Looks to me that they want Paul around more for what they're paying him. Finn doesn't need a run or mouth piece. That segment stood out as a red herring.

That's a problem with having a matched tied to you like the Hardys. If they pick anything but a ladder or tlc match it seems counter productive.

It wasn't really a bad show, but there were, I don't know, maybe 30 minutes worth of stuff I actually wanted to see, and another two and a half hours of stuff that was just there. I don't blame anyone for tuning out on this one.

It feels like I have seen this episode of Raw for almost a year now. They really need to change up the main event scene in some way like I don't know have the champ be there. Finn taking a shot at Brock for being a part timer was nice. Keep it up.

Exactly! It feels like it is a slight variation of the same show every week. Almost no freshening up, especially now that we are Braun-less for a bit. He was an exciting change, at least.

Remember when we were told Brock was going to be around more often to increase the prestige of the Universal Title? Here we are.

The problem with putting the belt on Brock is that he isn't around often enough to help develop the stories on week-to-week TV and, since everyone else looks like shit compared to him, we're conditioned to not care when he's away. This effect is increased when he has the belt and the schmoes who have to carry Raw are fighting over bread crumbs ("championship opportunities" instead of actual championships) in the meantime.

I wouldn't watch Raw either if I was still watching on a regular basis. Nothing of note can actually happen. They'e stalled all real storyline potential.

Braun sure was cool for a few weeks there, though. I was into it.

You could see the "Oh Jesus" look on Gabriels face as soon as Jojo started talking about her rabbit.
