WWE’s ratings have not been the best in recent weeks. In fact, they have been breaking records in the opposite way than they want to. Now they need to figure out some answers.
Roman Reigns was moved over to SmackDown as part of the Superstar Shake-Up. However, the Big Dog announced that he was coming back to RAW for some unfinished business. It looks like WWE doesn’t want Reigns to show up, but he is coming anyway to kick off the show.
Wrestle Votes commented that WWE is in “panic mode.” After only a few weeks of having Reigns off of RAW they are bringing him back. In fact, they had to cancel a house show in the process. However, it might not be enough to just bring Reigns back for one night.
Panic mode creeping in. After only 3 weeks, Roman Reigns returns to RAW tonight.
As big a star as Reigns is, I think more is needed to turn this show around. Record low numbers last week. Work needs to be done.
It would be nice if WWE could become water cooler conversation once again, but that is looking like a very uncommon occurrence nowadays.
WWE might have some exciting plans coming up as they build toward Money In The Bank, but we’ll just have to wait and see if it will be enough to bring viewers back to the company.
