WWE News: RAW’s Audience Sees Another Drop, Moves Back Up In Top 5 (12/3/18)

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

Following last week’s widely criticized (and justifiably so) episode of WWE’s Monday Night RAW saw a drop in ratings and the weekly Cable Top 150 Rankings (see that here), last night’s edition at least gave a bit better of a show for the viewing public. Does that translate in the ratings?





Numbers for last night’s edition of the red brand are now available and there’s a big drop again, going down to a 2.286. This is a decrease from last week of 3.5%, meaning the show has lost over 8% of its viewership from two weeks ago. Here’s a look at the last four weeks of ratings for RAW:

  • November 12th: 2.449
  • November 19th: 2.493
  • November 26th: 2.368
  • December 3rd: 2.286

However, in another case of bad news/good news, Monday Night RAW was able to jump back up a spot in the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic, although they maintained their same share from last week. With the red brand also occupying the number six and seven spots, here is last night’s top five:

  1. Monday Night Football – ESPN – 3.62
  2. Monday Night Kickoff – ESPN – 1.46
  3. SportsCenter (12 AM) – ESPN – 1.21
  4. Monday Night RAW (9PM) – USA Network – 0.85
  5. Love & Hip Hop – VH1 – 0.84

EA’s Take: Well folks, more proof that the ratings mean absolutely ‘Dick Cheney’, for the most part. I’d like for anybody to just go look back at the Monday Night Football ratings for the past few weeks because they’re just as up-and-down as WWE’s. Granted, the numbers are bigger, but they’re increases and decreases all the same. Yet, for some reason the sky is only ever falling for the WWE, right? So while that very vocal minority who always wants to boycott or protest is always the loudest, just follow the 18-49 numbers. They’re consistent EVERY week. Ratings are not though and can be affected by so many other factors, especially today, that they aren’t a good gauge anymore. For some reason, all the curmudgeons still seem to use them as a point in their own narratives though, so keep doing you!

ROH News: WOH Title On The Line At Road To G1 Supercard San Antonio

Published

on

Kelly Klein
Kelly Klein will defend her WOH Title at Ring Of Honor Road To G1 Supercard San Antonio!

As we noted this morning, Ring Of Honor is back on the road starting tomorrow night for three Road To G1 Supercard events in Texas, concluding in San Antonio on Saturday.

The first match for San Antonio was revealed earlier as Marty Scurll will meet either Jonathan Gresham or Mark Haskins depending on the results of Tag Wars (see that announcement here), but now Ring Of Honor has added a big title match to the card.

Now set for Road To G1 Supercard in San Antonio is a WOH World Championship confrontation, as the former champion Sumie Sakai looks to regain the title from Kelly Klein:

The road to Madison Square Garden begins deep in the heart of Texas as the stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling do battle on Road to G1 Supercard – Houston on Jan. 25!

Your favorite stars will be in action, jockeying for position as ROH heads toward 17th Anniversary in Las Vegas, the final stop on the Road to G1 Supercard in Baltimore, and finally, The World’s Most Famous Arena!

ROH’s return to San Antonio features Night 3 of Tag Wars, the semi-finals and finals of a 12-team tournament for a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles at 17th Anniversary on March 15 and a spot in the Crockett Cup, a tag team tournament co-promoted by the NWA and ROH, on April 27.

In addition to the semi-finals and finals of Tag Wars, the Women of Honor World Championship is on the line when the Women of Honor World Champion “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein defends her Championship against the very woman that she pinned to capture the title, and the woman that pinned Kelly to become the first Champion, Sumie Sakai!

WOMEN OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
WOMEN OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPION “THE GATEKEEPER” KELLY KLEIN vs. SUMIE SAKAI

During the live Supercard of Honor 2018 pre-show, Kelly Klein, still never pinned or submitted, defeated international superstar Mayu Iwatani while Sumie Sakai defeated Tenille Dashwood. By winning, each athlete earned the right to compete during the main card to become the very first Women of Honor World Champion. It was Sumie that shocked the world, pinning the previously never-pinned Kelly to make history as the first-ever Women of Honor World Champion!

For over eight months, Sumie took on all challengers, with victories on two continents against athletes from four countries, holding the Women of Honor World Championship with great pride. But question marks lingered – the very woman that Sumie defeated to become the very first Champion had not yet received a title match.

At Final Battle, that changed. Sort of. Kelly was a part of a four-woman field that competed for the Women of Honor World Championship. One-by-one, Kelly pinned Karen Q., Madison Rayne, and Sumie to become the second-ever Women of Honor World Champion. But the question remains – was Sumie’s victory over Kelly at Supercard really the upset many described it to be or was Kelly’s victory at Final Battle truly indicative of what Kelly was capable of? Join us LIVE in San Antonio to find out as the Women of Honor World Championship is on the line in San Antonio!

All three nights of Road to G1 Supercard in Texas Jan. 24-26 will stream LIVE worldwide for HonorClub. Keep it locked to ROHWrestling.com and the ROH App for more match announcements.

ROH News: First Match Revealed For Road To G1 Supercard San Antonio

Published

on

Marty Scurll
Ring Of Honor reveals the first match for Road To G1 Supercard in San Antonio!

Ring Of Honor is back on the road beginning tomorrow night, as they head to Texas for three straight evenings with the Road To G1 Supercard events.

We’ve already seen quite a few matches revealed for tomorrow night’s show in Dallas and Friday’s in Houston, however all we’ve heard for Saturday in San Antonio is the yet to be determined Semi-Finals and Finals of Tag Wars. That has changed today as ROH announced the first official (kind of) match for the event as ‘The Villain’ Marty Scurll will go one-on-one with either Jonathan Gresham or Mark Haskins, depending on the events of Tag Wars:

The road to Madison Square Garden begins deep in the heart of Texas as the stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling do battle on Road to G1 Supercard – San Antonio on Jan. 26!

Your favorite stars will be in action, jockeying for position as ROH heads toward 17th Anniversary in Las Vegas, the final stop on the Road to G1 Supercard in Baltimore, and finally, The World’s Most Famous Arena!

ROH’s return to San Antonio features Night 3 of Tag Wars, the semifinals and finals of a 12-team tournament for a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles at 17th Anniversary on March 15 and a spot in the Crockett Cup, a tag team tournament co-promoted by the NWA and ROH, on April 27.

In addition to Tag Wars bouts, a singles match pitting “The Villain” Marty Scurll against either Jonathan Gresham or Mark Haskins has been signed. Scurll’s opponent will be determined by the results of Night 1 of Tag Wars in Dallas.

“THE VILLAIN” MARTY SCURLL vs. JONATHAN GRESHAM OR MARK HASKINS

Marty Scurll is one of the top contenders for the ROH World Championship, and now with PCO and Brody King by his side as members of Villain Enterprises, “The Villain” is brimming with confidence and more dangerous than ever.

He will look to keep his momentum going in San Antonio against either Gresham or Haskins. Those two are entered in Tag Wars and will be on opposite sides on Night 1 in Dallas on Jan. 24, as Gresham and ROH World Champion Jay Lethal face Haskins and “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams. The winning team will continue in the tournament on Night 3, while Scurll will face the one who doesn’t advance out of Gresham and Haskins.

Regardless of who Scurll’s opponent is, “The Villain” undoubtedly will have his hands full. Gresham is one of the best technical wrestlers in the world, and Haskins was one of pro wrestling’s hottest free agents before he signed with ROH last month. Scurll and Haskins are no strangers to one another, as they have been both opponents and partners numerous times over the past decade in their home country of England.

All three nights of Road to G1 Supercard in Texas Jan. 24-26 will stream LIVE worldwide for HonorClub. Keep it locked to ROHWrestling.com and the ROH App for more match announcements.
