    @Jon-Jon the reason they care for ratings is cause of the sponsers…

    If it were a UFC fight night or Pay Per View I think, WWE ratings would drop.
    With that said watching paint dry > HHH=Goats life

    This goes to show that ratings don’t matter. If the Ultimate Fighter get’s below a 1.0, and they aren’t in any trouble, then clearly WWE and TNA aren’t either. People are too ignorant to understand that.
