WWE reportedly given up on new changes to RAW

WWE has been trying to do all they can in order to improve the dwindling ratings. They dropped the crowd lights, changed their graphics to black and white for a more ”grittier” feel.

However, it seems that the company has already dropped the idea, even though Mick Foley himself put over WWE’s new direction.

On  Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez discussed WWE’s latest attempt at improving ratings by making the third hour a grittier show.  He said WWE has dropped dimming the lights and changing the graphics to black and white. It lasted only two weeks.

WWE will continue to try new techniques to help with the ratings. The third gritty hour of RAW did not do much, especially since fans saw the gritty theme for only twenty minutes last week due to lighting the crowd for the Electric Chair segment.

    Let’s make it black & white that will do something! No

    The last time WWE shows were this crappy was when I switched to TNA (Christian, Angle switched over) and I preferred TNA for awhile. Looks like AEW might be the same but hopefully don’t make the same mistakes TNA did.

    So am I. Nothing like seeing what works for someone else, then copying it.

    It is interesting that the same insiders who admonish talent to “be patient and put in the work” are looking for gimmicks and quick fixes to improve ratings rather than put in the hard work.

    It could be the greatest final hour in wrestling history and it would make no difference because the first two hours need to be better to hold peoples attention. Changing the last hour is like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted.

    Concentrate on whole show, not the last hour. Oh, and changing the lighting etc is not “improving” the show.
