    Without the help of Cena and Orton as well. It’s good to see those numbers.

  • Julius Antero

    How will the local carrier in the philippines, studio 23, edit this 3-hr show to a 1-hr full of advertisements? Tsk tsk tsk, got to do a lot of research again in the web.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Probably similar to what WWE does for AM Raw that airs Sunday mornings on USA in the US.

  • Venom

    Good to hear. I actually enjoyed the show with the absence of Orton and Cena. Granted I’m sure some people got wind of the Brock Lesnar spoiler but that was only 5-10 minutes of the show.

    As always they probably felt it was another throwaway show since its the holiday week and put Cena and Orton on the live event since ratings would be down regardless. (or so they thought) only to have it backfired. Just like when Cena was off TLC 2011 when Bryan won the world championship and zack Ryder won us championship.

    • LeBron James

      No Monday Night Football was the reason for the rise of ratings. Don’t act blind, Lesnar had anything to do with it.

      • Venom

        I don’t watch football so I can’t comment about it. And I’m not sure what you meant “Lesner had anything to do with it.” did you mean to say “Lesnar didn’t have anything todo with it”? Or “Lesnar had something to do with it”?

  • Nostaljack

    The best segment WWE has given us in years and roughly 60,000 people tuned out early. Too bad for them.

  • Jay El Bee

    Still down from 2 weeks ago when they were still going head to head with MNF, hopefully the numbers will improve next week when Cena, Orton and the rest of the guys that missed the show are back.

  • Smarky Smark

    Still not as high as it was during the Attitude Era.
