2 Comments on Raw Rating: Rousey factor and Heyman promo in response to Reigns draw diminishing returns, key metrics

  1. Nothing will spike that third hour. It’s not the length, it’s the time. People don’t stay up all night.

  2. The Heyman promo was boring but even worse, it was hypocritical. It takes some nards to speak about how the WWE Champion has to defend the title at all costs, tirelessly, as opposed to sitting at home when his client has spent more time off of WWE programming as Champion than on it. Sad
