The 10/22 episode of Monday Night Raw continued the WWE's recent trend of low numbers. While the official rating is still being worked up, Raw drew hours of 3.58, 3.65, and 3.43 in millions of viewers.

These numbers are down from last week, and Raw's third hour continued to bring in the lowest rating of the night, which has been a major point of concern in recent months. Monday's advertised main event was "the biggest lumberjack match in Raw history", between WWE Champion CM Punk, and World Champion Sheamus.

    Well they were competing against a game 7 NLCs, a debate and MNF. Shouldn't be much of a surprise.

    There are so many reasons that buisness is down. Its not only for the E. Indies are also cutting down on the number of shows per year.

    There isn't a interesting storyline happening. CM Punk and John Cena has become predictable, we all know the future for Ryback, there is nothing new or exciting until January

    i just appreciate the art, i was able to learn early that it wasnt real like i thought, but its still real in a way, and it still entertained me, i guess i developed somewhat of a passion for it.

    The storylines AND the "wrestlers". I dont even Stone Cold pretty much dropped the realest s@@@ in that promo with CM Punk.

    Suspension of disbelief is the words. Wrestling is a nice alternative for those who want reality tv without having to watch Love and hip hop ATL or something like that

    Vince wondering how he can get his ratings back

    1. put the 45 to Linda & dismiss her life

    2. Let Undertaker & Paul Bearer bury her (or bury her on raw for large ratings)

    3. bring back attitude era

    4. mission completed

    It's best not to bring back the attitude era. I understand people still loved that era as a whole but a new era needs to being and it can't be this pg era that we're currently in!!!

    They do have the Saturday morning show to make up for it. But its 1-2 matches.
