    I dont know how many times I have said this, WWE does not need to look at ratings, they will always be low, until the time somebody in charge starts to slowly shift back to the 14+TV rating, where there is blood sometimes, where there are headshots to the head, (but protected by hands) where there is more in ring action, and if not have better storylines than go on about A.J for the past month every single week. If WWE is reading this (because I know they read some of it, to know how much we know, etc) my advice to you is as you slowly shift back to the 14+TV Rating, your ratings will also slowly shift back to higher numbers, because at the end of the day, the kiddy fans arent what keeps the bussiness going

    Yeah rating usually go up this time of year for many reasons. Its a decent rating (especially compared to the last few months, lets see if it stays like that or drops back down to 3.0;s). I also think that the ratings going down in the second half wouldn’t have been as bad if people would have known Taker was going to return, but in the same sense people might not have watched it if they knew he was returning.

    I can see more people sticking around for the second half next week just to see what happens. I love the road to Wrestlemania, it’s the few months that WWE actually try somewhat.

    Despite the ratings usually being up at this time of year, this has to be an encouraging sign for the WWE.
