Bischoff opens today’s show speaking about RAW’s steadily declining ratings. He says that he’s still not worried about the ratings, because RAW is live 52 weeks a year and its ratings are impacted by seasonal occurrences. With the weather improving, there are less people watching television overall. In addition to that, they’re up against NBA Playoffs.
He says that although the rating is low, they still drew 2.4 Million people over a three hour span. He adds that there are producers of huge shows that have $5-$7 Million dollar budgets that would cut their left leg off to have 2.4 Million people watch their show.
Bischoff says that the recently announced Women’s Tournament that will air on the WWE Network is a very good idea. He thinks that the timing in perfect for this type of tournament, and he predicts that it will be very successful.
