    It’s all about timing. I’m thoroughly convinced Vince puts stupid matches at the tops of the hours, and matches we want to see at the historically low-viewing time slots just so he doesn’t have to admit that he needs to change the way he books his product.

    Does anyone really expect that Miz would beat Sheamus or Kingston beat Del Rio?

    Ratings don’t mean anything. Segments that sucked got great ratings and gains and segments that were really good lost a low of viewers.
