WWE needs to figure out how to pull up their viewership in a big way. Stephanie McMahon is apparently getting involved as the company listens to their networks for suggestions.
The networks have floated out many suggestions in the past. The 24/7 Title was an idea from USA Network. That title isn’t seemingly doing the trick anymore. Now they are looking for more solutions for this viewership problem.
According to Andrew Zarian on the Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, Stephanie McMahon is set to meet with network executives and hash out some new concepts. It was not specifically noted which network she’s meeting with.
“I don’t know which network it was but somebody told me that Steph has a meeting with one of the networks at the end of the month for pitched ideas from the network. I don’t know if this is a common thing that they do or if this is a regular thing but I know that the networks are pitching ideas.”
Fox and USA Network have a vested interest in figuring out this ratings problem for WWE. The big issue remains that viewership continues slipping. There is a hope that live crowds and touring will bring back some viewers at home, but the past 15 months has certainly done a number to WWE’s viewership.
