WWE News: SmackDown Live Superstar Gets A Name Change

Published

Andrade Cien Almas
WWE has changed Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas’ name!

Tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live from the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama was set to feature the next chapter between two lucha stars, Rey Mysterio and Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas (keep up with all the action with Mitchell’s Live Report).

The match was everything the WWE Universe expected, but the newsworthy item coming out of tonight had nothing to do with the action at all. WWE has officially shortened up Almas’ name, as he is now simply known as Andrade. This is something we’ve seen WWE do in the past with the likes of Cesaro (Antonio Cesaro), Rusev (Alexander Rusev), Neville (Adrian Neville) and most recently with Apollo Crews, calling him just ‘Apollo’ for a short period of time.

Of course for those familiar with Andrade, that is actually the former La Sombra’s real last name (Manny Andrade). Now going back to the match, both Superstars took some incredible risks in search of a victory, but in the end Zelina Vega was the deciding factor and Andrade would get the win.

WWE News: RAW Rating Increases Again, Takes Top 3 Spots In Rankings (1/14/19)

Published

WWE RAW
The ratings are in for last night’s WWE RAW!

After a couple of weeks where Monday Night RAW fell on the eve of holidays and gave the WWE Universe two pre-taped episodes that scored low ratings, last week the red brand saw a big increase up against the College Football National Championship (see last week’s ratings here).

The numbers for last night’s RAW have been released and with no tough competition this week, we have another increase to a 2.722, up 17.1% from last week and up 38.3% over the last two. Here’s how the last four weeks of ratings look for Monday Night RAW:

  • December 24th: 1.775
  • December 31st: 1.968
  • January 7th: 2.324
  • January 14th: 2.722

As for the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic, the aforementioned College Football National Championship knocked the red brand entirely out of the top five, which is an unusual circumstance. This week is a start contrast, as RAW occupies the top three spots. Here is this week’s top five:

  1. Monday Night RAW (9PM) – USA Network – 0.93
  2. Monday Night RAW (10PM) – USA Network – 0.91
  3. Monday Night RAW (8PM) – USA Network – 0.90
  4. Love & Hip Hop – VH1 – 0.74
  5. NCAA Basketball Duke/Clemson – ESPN – 0.71

EA’s Take: What a difference a week can make, especially when you’re not up against the most watched College Football game of the entire season. The funny thing is with regards to the rankings, RAW moves up tremendously while posting nearly identical shares of the demographic as they had last week. So while some people tried to tell me that an 18% increase in their audience and nearly a 1 share of the 18-49 wasn’t a victory for WWE, I think any logical person will tell you that’s just absurd. I was also told that scoring a rating in the 2’s isn’t a big deal, but only eleven shows last night in the top fifty pulled it off.
