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.
