          I got really bored, really fast with this show ... flipped to watch the Prime Time Emmys, which were vastly more entertaining.

          WWE really needs to step it up fast ... MNF is right around the corner.

        But MNF is right around the corner. They know that ratings will drop. Why bother?

      Because some of us don't have even the slightest bit of interest in football, and if they decide to just concede the rating fight and put out several months of filler, their ratings will plummet even further. They do have shareholders to think of now, it's not just Vince deciding to take a loss for a few months and hope he gets it back at Wrestlemania.

    Then there's this:

    - Add the law firms of Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP and the law office of Alfred G. Yates Jr. to the list of firms that are investigating WWE for allegedly issuing false and misleading statements regarding their ability to acquire a premium fee for their television license renewal deal.

    Investors might not take to kindly if they find out they had been "tanking it", cuz that how they do things when football starts up.

So maybe my sarcasm/facetiousness didn't translate.

Just because MNF is about to start up is no reason for us to expect anything better out of WWE. That's just another "deadline" that will come and go. If WWE wanted or were able to provide better programming, they should/would already be doing so.

Put another way - they think they're providing the content that their fans want. The fact that ratings are dropping is an indication that they aren't succeeding, and no external forces will change that (whether MNF, non-renewals, YES Movements, ...), save for a change in the organizational structure that re-thinks how the product is made.

I think they have a great chance to build for the future. I think the lottery is going to be a good shot in the arm. As long as they keep the feeling of each show roughly the same it can't hurt to freshen things up.
