WWE News: Open Letter From A Saudi Regarding Greatest Royal Rumble

Triple H Saudi Arabia Greatest Royal Rumble

Since the Greatest Royal Rumble was announced for Saudi Arabia and it came to light women wouldn’t be wrestling. it has been mired in controversy. Fans have questioned WWE’s decision to hold an event in a country that wouldn’t allow women’s wrestling. Even going as far as to say it is “killing the women’s revolution”.

HHH even made comments on this situation as we reported earlier this week. It appears however that the view from people in Saudi Arabia maybe different from ours. While some fans believe that this is a bad look for WWE, fans in Saudi Arabia believe this is helping for a culture change. Our own Greg Demarco posted this open letter on Twitter with a quote.

This is an open letter from a person whom lives in Saudi Arabia. Some quotes from the open letter; “The country is changing. The culture is changing A LOT in the last two years, and it’s all because of our young Prince that what’s to give the wheel to a younger generation to shale our society the way they want, which I had no concerts, no movie theaters, no comic con, no entertainment events of any kind, and No wrestling shows that are advertised publically because of our countries reputation. But now, WE HAVE ALL OF THOSE! And many of those even don’t segregate men and women. I personally didn’t even think for a second this day will come while I’m alive.”

The open letter would go on to say:

Women will wrestle in Saudi Arabia one day but we have to be patient. Saudi Arabia is changing but it takes time. If WWE decided to not hold this show in Saudi Arabia, it won’t help. Atleast holding it (with the flaws present) gives us hope, and takes us in the right direction”.

This certainly makes me think about this on another level. I can’t begin to actually understand how this person feels while typing this. Hopefully it opens some eyes and allows another perspective, one who actually lives in the culture everyday.

WWE News: Another Match Made For TLC This Sunday

Published

Randy Orton
WWE has added a Chairs Match to TLC on Sunday!

Just as SmackDown Live is about to go on the air (keep up with all the action with Mitchell’s Live Report), another match has been made official for Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view featuring two of the blue brand’s top Superstars.





After their recent encounters and the shocking unmasking, Rey Mysterio will have his shot at revenge against Randy Orton when they go one-on-one. However, it won’t be just any match as the two will clash in a Chairs Match:

Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton will pull out a chair (or two or 10) to settle their scorching rivalry, and the time and place for the hard-hitting encounter will be at WWE TLC, where they will go head to head (and swing for swing) in a Chairs Match.

The bitter hatred between these two Superstars fueled several jaw-dropping moments, including Orton viciously unmasking The Master of the 619 during the Nov. 20 edition of SmackDown LIVE. Given their chaotic brawls in recent weeks, nothing will come close to the battle that awaits them in this steel sharpens steel affair.

Will Mysterio capitalize on his moment for redemption? Or will The Apex Predator claim another “victim?” Don’t miss Mysterio and Orton swinging for the fences in what promises to be a chaotic Chairs Match at WWE TLC, Sunday, Dec. 16, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.

WWE News: RAW Viewership Drops Again, Back To 5th In Rankings (12/10/18)

WWE RAW
A look at the ratings for last night’s WWE RAW!

After what could be described as two consecutive brutal ratings weeks for Monday Night RAW (yet still had a good 18-49 number and moved up in the top five rankings), the red brand looked to turn things around last night with its final episode before Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view.

 





While last night’s numbers were delayed today, they have now dropped and RAW comes in with an overall rating of 2.194, its third straight decrease and a fall of 4% from last week. Here’s how the last month’s worth of ratings look for the red brand:

  • November 19th: 2.493
  • November 26th: 2.368
  • December 3rd: 2.286
  • December 10th: 2.194

Meanwhile, this week is different when it comes to the ratings and rankings comparison, as last week’s show saw a drop in viewership, but was able to rise up a spot in the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic. This week, that’s not the case as RAW’s best hour is back down to fifth, while the 9PM and 10PM hours come in sixth and seventh respectively. Here’s the top five:

  1. Monday Night Football – ESPN – 3.46
  2. Monday Night Kickoff – ESPN – 1.36
  3. SportsCenter (12AM) – ESPN – 1.08
  4. Love & Hip Hop – VH1 – 0.79
  5. Monday Night RAW (8PM) – USA Network – 0.78

EA’s Take: At this point, anyone who uses ratings as their be-all, end-all for how WWE’s product or company is doing isn’t going to stop doing so. Especially when the numbers continue to get worse. The 18-49 demographic means nothing to them, but I can only explain its importance so many times, which I’ve done every week for months now. So we’re just going to look at the reasons why. Has the show sucked lately? Yes. Was it improved this week and it just didn’t reflect in the ratings? Yes. The narrative is going to be a lot different come January, believe that.
