Raw drew a 3.7 rating last night. That's down .1 from the past two weeks. Nothing in either direction enough that is going to make anyone change their minds about whether they think controversy equals ratings. But a disappointment for sure since usually the day after a PPV means an increase, but probably just says nobody cared about the PPV more than the quality of the show.
Well, to me, this number just means that the majority didn't see the genius that was necrophelia and HHH. Hopefully, next week we can get HHH dressing up as Mae Young and giving head to a dead Mark Henry or something...
By the way, Storm's gimmick includes 1.) telling the audience to shut up, and 2.) occasionally making everyone stand for the Canadian national anthem. You know they don't know what to do with a wrestler when he's making fans stand for a national anthem. It's like waving a white flag and saying, "This guy has no personality -- we give up."

I think a lot of people on this board would be happy to discover that Mark Henry wouldn't be wrestling anymore, though, so that wouldn't get as much flack.
The next step is to bring in Evil Dead from JCW so they can have an actual dead wrestler.
But remember, its RVD's fault about the main event, and Booker and Jericho because of the top of the second hour. It definately wasn't because of the brilliant plan designed by Vince McMahon, I mean, it has Kevin Kelly's wife hooked on wrestling now, so it must be the greatest idea ever (sarcasm off). On to the idea of Kevin Kelly's wife's opinion, to quote that noted philosopher, DC Derrick Coleman: Whoop di damn do.
I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.
ICP are actually pretty good wrestlers contrary to what WCW and the WWF wanted us to believe. Not technical gods, by any means, but certainly better than some of the people currently in the WWE today. Plus, they had Pat Tanaka at the JCW show I went to and Pat Tanaka kicks ass. He almost made up for it being the only live wrestling event I've ever attended that didn't feature Abdullah the Butcher.
This week's edition of Raw did a 3.8 cable rating, with a 6 share, according to Nielsen Media Research. That is the same number that the show did last week. Raw did hours of 3.7 and 4.0. The highest rated segment on the show was the 4.
