On the 165th edition of The Straight Shooters Podcast, Nick Piccone (@nickpiccone) and Vaughn Johnson (@VaughnMJohnson) discussed WWE’s ratings woes, specifically with the historic low rating for Monday Night RAW this past week.
While these television numbers aren’t good compared to the Attitude Era, they seem to be pretty good compared to how people watch their television programs in 2018.
Here are a few of the topics they hit on:
• RAW’s record-low rating doesn’t look good, but does it mean fans are tuning completely out?
• Social media, especially YouTube, garners huge numbers for the company.
• WWE Network allows non-finishes for PPVs, but will people tune into TV for the follow-up?
• With their record television deals announced earlier this year, it seems like they’re not in any financial trouble and won’t be any time soon.
