Raw was fourth for the night on cable.

Raw was down 15 percent from last week, which is no surprise. It would have likely fallen below the Trump-Clinton number had it not been for a decent first hour with the Brock Lesnar/Samoa Joe angle. The decision to do the angle earlier in the show meant more people saw it, but sacrificed the show's overall rating because they had nothing close to that level to build toward for the remaining nearly three hours.

The third hour, in particular, did poorly, but still better than it did on debate night. The debate drew far more viewers than the NBA playoffs.

The Warriors-Cavaliers game did 24.47 million viewers ...

The three hours were:

8 p.m. 2.77 million viewers
9 p.m. 2.52 million viewers
10 p.m. 2.34 million viewers

What that actually means quickly became a question. And people naturally wondered if it was related to the announcement that Roman Reigns will be making on Raw next week about his plans for SummerSlam.

Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez briefly discussed the matter on last night's edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, and Meltzer noted that he was told that Cena won't be Reigns' opponent at SummerSlam. The idea is apparently for Cena to be able to appear on both Raw and SmackDown even if it goes against the brand split because he's one of the only draws that WWE has.

Strowman underwent surgery in mid-May following the WWE European tour. At the time, WWE reported he had suffered a shattered elbow and would be out six months. That was likely stated in order to showcase Strowman making a huge superhuman comeback early.

World Class was once one of the most popular promotions in the world, empowered by the Von Erich family, The Fabulous Freebirds and Chris Adams, among others. The original incarnation of the company under that name was used in September 1982 and ran through late 1989, when the initials were replaced by the USWA name.

World Wrestling Entertainment purchased the World Class video library from Kevin Von Erich and once sold a t-shirt utilizing the WCCW logo in conjunction with their "Triumph and Tragedy of World Class Championship Wrestling" documentary. PWInsider.com research into the logo's trademark reveals it was abandoned in 2003.

Even if he's healthy, I'd leave him off RAW until the night after GBF. Joe beats Brock for the belt and Brock is throwing shit around on RAW, calling out Joe. Braun's music hits and the two have a stand-off in the ring -- Brock suddenly more stoic. Joe later arrives at the building and someone asks if he heard Brock calling him out, and he just shrugs.

At SummerSlam run Brock vs. Braun and Joe vs. Balor for the belt in the main event. Joe can beat Balor at SummerSlam, Clash and finally inside Hell in a Cell -- Balor getting a little closer each time. Brock vs. Joe rematch at Survivor Series where Brock can win back the belt -- assuming that you want to do Brock vs. Reigns at WrestleMania. Hell, you can probably pad Joe's reign out more and give him matches against John Cena and Jeff Hardy. I don't know why I'm throwing Hardy's name in there -- I guess because he's over. Brock should probably go over Braun if he's getting the belt back -- Braun will just look good tossing Brock across the ring. But why not consider putting Braun over and using Brock to actually get some of their newer guys over? Especially if Brock has that rematch all lined up and doesn't need to re-contend by the laws of their own canon.

Between giving Triple H his win back, giving Taker his win back after ending the streak, getting squashed by Goldberg, can you imagine if Lesnar was full-time? He'd have been fucked up and re-built as a monster to a Big Show/Kane level by this point. Thank God he's a part-timer.

Pretty much the WWE admitting they are terrible at building new mega stars and legit revolve around Cena. Unless the plan is to finally use up Cena's star power on both brands to actually rub off on new and future mega stars, just going to be the usual with Cena.

It's also the first sign of another jumbled mess of a brand split. Plus it doesn't make sense. Why the fuck is Cena a free agent?

They half-assed the Shakeup stuff this year and all supposedly because Vince got cold feet on doing an actual trade episode(s) and some of the ideas they had for swaps.

If RAW made an announcement about resigning Lesnar to a deal or WWE mentioning stuff about free agency, could have easily spin the Cena stuff as him wanting to test the market.

Unlike most weeks where SmackDown is at or near the top of cable viewership, the show was just 13th on cable for the day in terms of total viewers. It was second in the 18-49 demo with a 0.63 rating, trailing only a new edition of "30 for 30" on ESPN.

Viewership was virtually identical to the SmackDown number from one year ago this week, which was 2.073 million. The bad news there is that show aired via tape delay and went up against game six of the NBA finals.
Outside of being #2 in the most important demo, complete disaster by Smackdown this week for numbers and comparisons.

We normally ignore rumors but due to the sheer amount of email we have received, we felt it was important to shoot the report down.

So Cena became a free agent during the "Superstar Shakeup".

A) Why was that such a throwaway story that they're just bringing it up now?

B) What the fuck was the Superstar Shakeup? We were kinda left to assume it was a bunch of trades. Or maybe each brand just getting to pick a certain amount of workers from the other brand. Now it causes free agency somehow on occasion? lol

Those ratings, combined with Cena free agent story, and Angle/HHH being the best return match they can offer, shows the state of things creatively.

How can they have let things get this bad? Literally just a few years off not even having a Cena or a Brock anymore and they just can't get things together.

It's a real pity there isn't a billionaire wrestling fan around like Ted Turner today, because I despite their size and reach, the product is woeful (just look at numbers and a peak in the Raw thread almost every week), they are complacent and I don't think they have ever been so vulnerable to proper competition.

put a product on screen that can shill the network and merchandise, and until they aren't selling out arenas, they haven't much to worry about.

That might be a possibility in the future surely? I mean, if fans are not buying into TV, and there are no real star attractions, surely, eventually, network numbers and live attendances start to take a hit too?

They can't seem to get network numbers above certain numbers, and I know for me personally, I stopped watching TV, tried again various times, then stopped completely. Eventually I just cancelled the network too. I wasn't watching and wasn't interested in what was happening. I don't really have time to watch a lot of older stuff so I wasn't using it. Even at such a bargain price point, it was competing with the likes of Netflix etc... So I just cancelled.

Maybe there will forever be enough people who get enough out of the network and enjoy the product enough to keep paying. Maybe Indian and Chinese expansion will mean they don't even care what happens in the US in 10 years time.

Just a bit sad that they obviously realise the issues, but are just banking on what you said. As long as it's good enough to make money. It sucks.

Nostalgia def helped for a long time, but I think that well is almost dry now. Undertaker looked horrible last few Manias and Rumble and is now, hopefully, gone.

Angle left for a decade...comes back, and in that decade they have built...HHH for him to face. Even when guys do come back now, they dont have opponents for them.

I've been wanting to try to get back into Smackdown at least because from what I've read and from the reactions, it seems enjoyable. But now it seems like that may have passed.

With the exception of Fashion Files of course.

To add onto the KURT ANGLE storyline, it is very sad watching a man you know can rock the mic with ad-libs and delivery be relegated to the screening of PG. There was one backstage segment with him and I could just see the ideas pop into his head, but then he remembers where he is at.

If they're already going to start allowing Cena to float freely between shows, it won't be too long before they end up killing the whole brand split again already.

Shit'll be right back to where it was from 2012-15 with them trying to run the same storylines with the same talent on both shows while huge swaths of the roster have nothing to do.

I mean, they still have a problem with loads of people having nothing to do, but it'll be worsened if the rosters are merged again.

Don't worry. They'll split the roster/title once again a few years later. FOR REALZ THIS TIME THOUGH.

Have to figure once the brand split ends, a big roster purge is probably going to happen in the WWE. Roster is really bloated right now but only feels small because of how bad WWE has used them and being spread over several brands/shows.

People always make that out to be a bad thing. I mean, on a personal level it sucks for the guys being released, but if someone isn't going to be getting spotlight in a unified WWE, then maybe they're just not warranting of it? They could go elsewhere and develop more skills that they can bring back to the WWE one day. They could spread out their "WWE power" to the independents elsewhere and help strengthen wrestling in general.

A spring clean is not always a bad thing, even for the people released.

I've always been pro brand split based on the potential that it could bring. Loved the first few years of the first split because it really did give them a platform to feature new talent and give stories to people who otherwise wouldn't have had them.

This brand split I really enjoyed early on. Even Raw felt pretty fresh for a few months. But now they've gone back to just totally unfocused booking.

Strowman and Lesnar's SummerSlam match was - as of last week - planned to be the show's main event.

Flores works in television for both the MLB and NHL networks, which he joined after leaving ESPN in 2016. He's a longtime pro wrestling fan and was slated to serve as the co-host of "The Ric Flair Show" on the MLW Radio network earlier this year before Flair decided that he didn't want to continue with the podcast.

There are also plans to bring some AAA talent in to work LAX.

Ross Forman, who worked for WCW and has worked for TNA in the past, is back as Head of Media Relations for the company. He started back with the company last week.

There have been talks with Mike Tenay about coming in for Slammiversary.

The early years of Flair as champion were the best drawing years on a consistent basis in the city’s history, but after 1983 that was far from the case.

He used the term, “When it (the transformation) happens, and I’m not going to say if, when it happens, its doing to be the most exciting thing to hit WWE programming in a long, long time.” Matt also said that it was inevitable that at some point Jeff would go as a single

SPOILER: show
According to PWInsider, Mike Bennett and Maria are expected to make their debuts for WWE at this weekend’s house shows. The two signed on back in April after leaving Impact Wrestling. It’s possible that the two could get involved somewhere at Money in the Bank; otherwise, they are expected to make their TV debuts on Smackdown next week.

This will be Bennett’s first run in WWE, while Maria is making her return after leaving in 2010. The two are expected to be put into a storyline upon their debut, though who they will feud with isn’t known.

If nothing else, this shows just how significantly the NBA game and the playoffs have been hurting Raw this year ...

The three hours were:

8 p.m. 3.08 million viewers
9 p.m. 3.20 million viewers
10 p.m. 3.03 million viewers
Only downside was they didn't take the #1 spot for rankings due to their dreaded and unexplained Monday Night War rival Love & Hip Hop show.

They had not been used since this past April.
Reasoning given for the recent releases.

It had been rumored that Bennett and Kanellis were heading to WWE following their departure from Impact Wrestling earlier this year. Both were spotted in St. Louis this weekend prior to the PPV.

He also said that ACH and Sammy Guevara will be getting Impact tryouts.

According to The Big Show, he loves working house shows on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, but he hates going to TV tapings.

"I love the live events. I love the Friday, Saturday, Sunday live event shows. I hate TVs. TVs, I just want to bash myself in the head with a hammer because they're just long, useless, time-wasting, bulls--t days where you sit around all friggin day for some idea that absolutely sucks. Debating it for hours and 17,000 inputs. And one or two guys laced up a pair of wrestling boots in their life and know what they're talking about. The others have never laced up a pair and really don't know s--t, but for some reason, they're telling you what to do. So you're just sitting there baffled. We all have that same look at TV, we walk around baffled, going, 'why are we doing this?'

"I like the live events. It's not as crazy. There's not as much B.S. backstage. It's just me and the guys. I like that part and I like getting out and working. I've done a lot of stuff where I go down, I knock somebody out, and I leave. I hate that. I get it. I'm old and beat up and they want to help me out and extend me, but I like getting in the ring."

While The Big Show believes that new talent should be given the television and pay-per-view time, he does not like to wait around all day to ultimately not get used on TV.

"There's a lot of change going on. There's a lot of new talent. There's a lot of new opportunities and I'm okay with that. They should get the TV time. They should get the pay-per-view time. I'm totally fine with that. Just don't make me come to Mondays when I don't have to do anything. That s--t pisses me off. Do you know what I mean? If I'm coming, use me. If not, send me home."

As noted, WWE has a storyline where they are billing Cena as a "free agent" and is no longer under contract to SmackDown. We reported yesterday that Cena vs. Bray Wyatt has been added to the July 15th RAW live event in Huntington, West Virginia.

Cena is scheduled to make his televised WWE return on the July 4th episode of SmackDown Live.

After not finishing in the top 10 the last few weeks, SmackDown was up to fourth for the night on cable in terms of total viewers. The show also was back to first in the 18-49 demo with a 0.85 rating.

In year-over-year comparisons, SmackDown was up 21 percent from last year's show which aired via tape delay on Thursday night. That episode did a 0.67 in the 18-49 demo, so it was up 27 percent year-over-year. The comparisons to 2016 numbers will become more relevant in about a month when they can be compared to shows after last July's brand split.

Speaking of Slammiversary, you can pre-order the PPV via the Fite App and receive $12 credit to use on the App.

However, WWE officials are still making plans for her heading into the summer. An idea has come to light for her heading into Summerslam, but it’s out of the box. Rajah has reported that the powers that be are planning a huge romantic angle for Bayley for Summerslam.

WWE officials are planning to continue focusing on Bayley’s innocence, and it’s going to come to light that Bayley has never kissed a man before. The idea is that angle will continue to be pushed heading into Summerslam with her having her first kiss after her match at the event.

There is some speculation that Corey Graves is the favorite for the role, but the powers that be have yet to make up their mind about who will play the man in this scenario. On paper, an angle like this could be cute, but there is a good chance most WWE fans will really dislike it.
Rumor going around the net about potential plans the WWE has for Bayley.

It should be noted that it wasn't clear if Meltzer was speculating about the split or was stating it as fact.

"The end result is that they're doing Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas as Miz's new entourage and they're dumping Maryse, I guess with the idea that because they've got Maria and Mike Bennett on the other brand, they don't want another husband and wife team or something?" Meltzer said. When asked if Maryse was done for now, Meltzer replied, "it looks like it."
