WWE Panicking over Recent RAW Ratings?

After the 9/21 RAW ratings came out, it was reported that the low number caused Vince McMahon to put enormous pressure on the creative team. After running angles the night before on the Night of Champions show then getting even lower ratings than before the next night, those within the company started to toss around the word “panic” to describe the situation.

Sting Update

Sting was sent to the hospital after his match against Seth Rollins on “Night of Champions” this past Sunday for an MRI according to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio. His neck was not broken but he was having difficulty walking. According to PWInsider, there is concern within the WWE that Sting suffered some sort of spinal injury. Sting did not appear on RAW as he went to his home in Dallas to rest. Also, according to Meltzer, the finish of the match went as planned but they just went to it quicker because of Sting’s injury.
