2019 Chairshot Woman Of The Year: Becky Lynch

Greg DeMarco presents the Chairshot Woman Of The Year for 2019! Who excelled throughout the past 12 months?

2019 was a crazy year in professional wrestling, leaving us all thirsty for more. I liken it to 1996, when competition started swinging at each other–but 1997 was year it got real. Could we see that in 2020? Who knows what we’ll be saying in 12 months, but first we need to take our annual look back as we do so well here at The Chairshot.

In episode five of The #Miranda & Greg DeMarco Super Such Good Shit Show, Pal, Miranda Morales and myself came together to review the past 12 months and pick the Man, Woman, and Team Of The Year for 2019. Over the next few days, I give you the winners!

2019 Chairshot Woman Of The Year: Becky Lynch

How do you follow-up a 2018 where you are awarded the Chairshot Woman Of The Year? Well if you’re Becky Lynch, you win it again! The 2018 award was hotly contested, as Becky’s resume was only “worthy” from SummerSlam on (still nearly 5 months), and Charlotte Flair had a great case for the award. The Man was undeniable because she literally changed the business in that 5-month span.

She didn’t change in 2019. She started the year off by winning the Royal Rumble, and made her way to the first ever women’s main event at WrestleMania. Becky emerged victorious and became Becky 2 Belts, but she also became a mainstream star, and arguably the second or third biggest star in the company.

That may sound like hyperbole, but it’s not. Bleacher Reports’ Ryan Dilbert conducted focus groups of non-WWE fans to see who resonated with them as individuals. Third overall, and the top woman, was Becky Lynch.

Becky did more than that. She main evented a second “Big Four’ pay-per-view in Survivor Series. She was the catalyst for Lacey Evans’  summer time rise in WWE. She was the first star out on the WWE debut on FOX. Teaming with Charlotte Flair, she even vaulted the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships to the main event of a pay-per-view.

Consideration was also given to:

  • Tessa Blanchard
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Shayna Baszler

Who was named Team Of The Year and Man Of The Year? ? Stay tuned the rest of this week to see!

I want to know what you think: Is Becky deserving of this honor for a second straight year? Leave a comment on this content, hit me up on social media @ChairshotGreg or email me at gregdemarco@thechairshot.com!

Greg DeMarco has your May 23 WWE Monday Night Raw ratings–and more importantly analysis. What does it really mean? Read and see!

We now have your ratings for the May 23 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, and it’s a good look for WWE. Net’s start with the specifics:

  • Hour #1 – 1.846 million viewers, .42 in the all important 18-49 demographic, ranked #4 among all shows for the night on cable
  • Hour #2 – 1.821 million viewers, .43 demo, ranked #2 for cable
  • Hour #3 – 1.530 million viewers, .38 demo, ranked #5 for cable

(Available via ShowbuzzDaily)

WWE Monday Night Raw Numbers for Nerds (like me)…

Here are your averages for Raw:

  • 1.732 million viewers per hour
  • .41 demo rating
  • 3.6 ranking average (occupying 3 of the Top 5 spots for the night)

Let’s take a look at the change over last week, shall we?

  • -71k average viewers over last week’s average of1.803 million (-3.93%)
  • -.20 in the demo rating over last week’s .61 average (-.2)
  • average ranking of #2 among all cable shows for the night last Monday (#1, #2, and #3)

What does it all mean, Greg?

It has to be terrible, right? a perceived 33% drop in the demo? That’s TERRIBLE.

Nope. Not at all. Factors to consider:

  • Last Monday Raw was not opposed by NBA basketball or NHL hockey–and it finished #1 through #3
  • This Monday saw the NBA playoffs on ABC (while on network, would still grab viewers and share from Raw), and the NHL playoffs on Turner (the NHL is doing amazing playoff numbers since moving to Turner).
  • The only programming to beat WWE Monday Night Raw was live sports. They beat everything else.

While I always preach that we cannot compare network numbers to cable numbers (we can’t), it’s important to remember that live sports will still pull eyeballs from Raw

One thing to consider for next week: Memorial Day Weekend, where people are headed out of town. We might get a Shark Tank rerun, and I can expect a dip in viewership. But given the loyalty of wrestling fans, the holiday weekend might actually cause WWE Smackdown On FOX to finish #1 for the night on the network.

Another thing to consider is that when I was looking at r

Why is the ranking the most important stat to consider?

For WWE Monday Night Raw, advertisers are going to primarily look at one thing (this applies to all TV show ratings, outside of live sports): how did you finish against your competition on the same night, on the same medium. For Raw, this means all other network shows on Friday night. What you can’t do is compare to last year, or decades ago during the Monday Night Wars. No one with any actual decision making powers cares about that, so why should we?

Greg DeMarco’s Ratings Analysis for WWE Smackdown On FOX (5/20/2022): #2 Among Network Shows

Greg DeMarco chimes in with your May 20 WWE Smackdown ratings. What does it really tell us? Greg tells you!

WWE Smackdown On Fox

Greg DeMarco chimes in with your May 20 WWE Smackdown ratings. What does it really tell us? Greg tells you!

We now have your April 30 edition of WWE Smackdown ratings, and it’s not the best news. Let’s start with the breakdown:

  • 2.031 million viewers
  • .45 rating in the all important 18-49 demographic
  • ranked #2 among all network shows for the night (behind ABC’s Shark Tank)

(Available via ShowbuzzDaily)

WWE Smackdown On FOX Numbers for Nerds (like me)…

Let’s take a look at the change over last week, shall we?

  • +138k viewers over last week’s 1.893 million (+7.29%)
  • +.5 in the demo rating over last week’s .40
  • ranked #2 among all network shows for the night last Friday (behind ABC’s Shark Tank)

What does it all mean, Greg?

What does it mean? It means it was a good week! Positive change in the viewership and demo rating, but most importantly finishing #2 in the demo for the week.

Any other factors to consider:

  • ESPN had two NBA Conference Semifinal games on Friday night, one of which overlapped WWE Smackdown On FOX
  • Turner had three NHL Conference Quarterfinal games on Friday night, two of which overlapped WWE Smackdown On FOX
  • All of the above listed games finished in the top ten, but for cable

While it’s not the same medium (cable instead of network), it’s going to pull viewers from Smackdown due to the nature of the populations that watch. They are not directly competition, but something to be considered when looking at the results. Keep in mind that Smackdown improved those metrics week over week, against that competition.

One thing to consider for next week: Memorial Day Weekend, where people are headed out of town. We might get a Shark Tank rerun, and I can expect a dip in viewership. But given the loyalty of wrestling fans, the holiday weekend might actually cause WWE Smackdown On FOX to finish #1 for the night on the network.

Why is the ranking the most important stat to consider?

For WWE Smackdown On FOX, advertisers are going to primarily look at one thing (this applies to all TV show ratings, outside of live sports*): how did you finish against your competition on the same night, on the same medium. For Smackdown, this means all other network shows on Friday night. What you can’t do is compare to last year, or decades ago during the Monday Night Wars. No one with any actual decision making powers cares about that, so why should we?

*Yes, WWE Smackdown On Fox (and Monday Night Raw) is live, but it’s not a sport. At least not for the networks, who are provided with 52 weeks of episodic programming that consistently delivers. Live sporting leagues don’t run 52 weeks/year, and more of a special event than RAW or Smackdown.
