WWE News: RAW Pulls Lowest Rating In History Before Extreme Rules (7/9/18)

Published

on

The holiday in the United States is in the rear view this week with WWE heading straight for Extreme Rules this Sunday in Pittsburgh. Last night was the final stop for Monday Night RAW prior to the pay-per-view, rolling into the TD Garden in Boston and looking to get momentum rolling. Following last week’s solid showing in the ratings, the numbers for last night’s edition of the red brand are in and they’re certainly “history making”.

The July 9th episode of RAW last evening comes in with an overall rating of 2.470 after last week’s 2.707, a new low for 2018 and the lowest rating in the history of the program. Previously, the September 26th, 2016 edition of RAW held the lowest rating with a 2.478.

In the 18-49 demographic, RAW was able to keep holding its own however, coming at numbers two (8PM hour), three (9PM hour) and five (10PM) in the Cable Top 150 Rankings. Number one was taken yet again by Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, while season eight of MTV’s Teen Mom came in at fourth.

Here are the ratings for the last four weeks of RAW:

  • June 18th: 2.903
  • June 25th: 2.663
  • July 2nd: 2.707
  • July 9th: 2.470

EA’s Take: Again, I’m starting to believe more and more that there’s no real rhyme or reason to the ratings anymore. Not when it comes to changes of a couple hundred thousand on a weekly basis. Last week’s episode of RAW (which was on a holiday week, mind you), I found to be pretty abysmal and it outdraws last night’s show, which I felt was much better. Perhaps last week was so poor that it caused some to tune out this week? I do think the fact that this is the “lowest rating in history” can be a little misleading as well, since it’s only a .008 less than the previous low. I try to just base the product off of how I felt about it personally at this point and last night’s show started with one of the better segments in a number of weeks. I’ll be interested to see how much this changes heading into SummerSlam.

MLW News: Sammy Guevara Returning To MLW Next Thursday In NYC

Published

on

We’re just over a week away now from Major League Wrestling’s return to the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York for its next set of Fusion television tapings, with a handful of big matches already announced for the event.

In addition to LA Park vs. PCO, The Hart Foundation in 6-Man Tag action, plus the return of the old WCW Spin The Wheel Make The Deal match, today MLW has announced that Sammy Guevara will return to the promotion for the show as he will take on El Hijo de LA Park. It should be noted that Joey Janela has also been announced to appear, however that could be changing after he suffered a possible serious injury this past weekend (read about that here):

SAMMY GUEVARA RETURNS TO MLW IN CLASH WITH PROMOCIONES DORADO’S EL HIJO DE LA PARK NEXT THURSDAY IN NYC

NEW YORK – This summer the calculated impresaria Salina de la Renta fired Sammy Guevara from Promociones Dorado on national TV.  Now, Guevara will have his shot at payback as he returns to MLW next Thursday October 4th at Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.  Sammy Guevara vs. El Hijo de LA Park (presented by Salina de la Renta) has been signed for MLW FURY ROAD: an MLW Fusion TV taping. Tickets start at just $20 at www.MLWtickets.com.

Salina de la Renta unceremoniously terminated her contract with Sammy Guevara this summer… while in a Jacuzzi on MLW FUSION.  Since being fired, Guevara has gone a journey abroad to Mexico and Japan to learn new skills and add to his already impressive arsenal.  

While away, the ruthless promoter Salina de la Renta’s iron grip has only gotten stronger with World Heavyweight Champion Low Ki, LA Park, El Hijo de LA Park and Ricky Martinez now under the Promociones Dorado banner.

“Sammy, Sammy, Sammy… still a boy trying to sit with the adults,” said the impresaria of Promociones Dorado about her former luchador.

Promociones Dorado has emerged over the last year as a dream team both in the ring and behind the scenes.  Founded by Salina de la Renta, Promociones Dorado acts as a pipeline to the stars of Latin America for sports leagues, TV and film in the US and abroad. 

Will the mysterious El Hijo de LA Park make good on a horror show next Thursday in New York or will Sammy Guevara stamp his return with an impressive win? Find out LIVE October 4th in New York City!

Tickets start at $20 for this MLW FUSION taping. [Buy tickets]

WWE News: Mae Young Classic Competitor Signs WWE Contract

Published

on

*WARNING – Spoilers ahead*

With the first round of WWE’s second annual Mae Young Classic still being aired weekly on the WWE Network, those who have tuned in have gotten a chance yet again to catch some more great female talent, just as we saw last year.

One of the more popular competitors in this year’s field has been Mia Yim, the former IMPACT Wrestling star who competed as Jade. The 29-year old, 9-year veteran of course also took part in the tournament last year, only making it to the second round where she was eliminated by Shayna Baszler. Last week, we saw Mia once again advance to the second round when she defeated her old rival Allysin Kay, securing her next match against Kaitlyn. Of course if you followed along with the spoilers for the Mae Young Classic, we know Mia will make it onto one more round before being eliminated.

While Mia certainly won’t be going as far as some fans would like, she did get a lot of love from the live crowd following her exit from the tournament as Full Sail University rang out with chants of “Please Sign Mia” directed at Triple H, much like we saw with Cedric Alexander during the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016. Today, we now know that the crowd’s wishes have come true as PWInsider is confirming that Mia has indeed signed a WWE contract. This makes Yim the only competitor from the Mae Young Classic field (who isn’t already signed) to be given a WWE deal and if you’ve been following along with recent videos shot at the Performance Center, you will see she is already there working out.

At this time, there’s no word on when she will be making her official debut.
