Do you think last Monday’s record low rating for Raw was due to not so much the product itself, but the same lame build for Money In The Bank year after year?
No, I think they burned out the audience in April with overhype for Wrestlemania and Greatest Royal Rumble, and everything since then has been such a letdown that people are just turning away in droves now. Plus Brock Lesnar is basically gone until Summerslam and the product has no direction as a result. 16 people fighting for a title opportunity at some point in the undetermined future is not exactly a strong selling point, and the Smackdown World title is pretty much treated like a secondary title and being contested between two guys trying to kick each other in the nuts as the main selling point. It’s just a really cold product right now.
