    Hot diggity! The big question is always just how much of that audience they can retain – you can draw the casual fans in, but if the product isn’t entertaining they will switch off again

      Well the football game did get really good in the third hour, I don’t blame people for switching

      • Bob’s Diner

        Third hour of Raw always does the worst. I hope what I wrote didn’t come across like I was saying fans were switching off due to the main event, because that isn’t what I was trying to say at all.

    The wwe ratings will be fine because there is no more nfl football until September 2014.

    College smollege. Wait til the NFL comes back. Wwe brought back the same drawn out legends. Some are still cool to see like Ron Simmons and the nao. But who cares about Ted dibiase or ric flair anymore or even irs. Who after seeing I noticed how much bray looks like him.
