Listening to the latest edition of Monday Night Raw literally put Vince McMahon and all the leaders of WWE on alert. As reported recently by well-known Wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer, the company is opening its eyes to the management of WWE in recent months and the latest figures represent a further alarm bell.
The recent numbers are shocking and the creative team may be making new changes to Monday Night Raw. Dave Meltzer reported that Vince McMahon usually blames smaller guys on top for the poor ratings of WWE. He also added that Vince McMahon wants more monsters in the ring and his current thought process is that there aren't big guys on the roster who can work at the top level.
Vince McMahon wants more monsters in the ring
Several media have reported that Vince McMahon would like to make changes to the first edition of Monday Night Raw after TLC right away. Everything that was done in the last red show had had the support of the WWE Chairman, but the unfortunate figures related to the ratings have brought the whole creativity of the federation to the docks and now the whole team looks apprehensive.
Sources close to WWE report that Raw's ratings do not suit those in power and therefore there could soon be sensational decisions and reactions, to say the least. In recent weeks there have been talks of reintroducing some superstars often disused recently and according to what reported we will try to enhance wrestlers such as Cesaro, Chad Gable, Carmella and Peyton Royce.
In addition to these, we will try to re-evaluate the role of Angel Garza, a wrestler who seems to be in the good graces of Vince McMahon. According to insiders, the creative team is trying to present something unique to increase their ratings and Garza himself could be part of it.
In general, 2020 was a bad year for everyone and the WWE was also hit hard by the pandemic, linked to the now infamous Coronavirus. In the United States, the situation is far from easy, Vince McMahon's federation is contesting the shows without an audience and last April was also forced to make big cuts and fire some of the wrestlers present in WWE.
The latest episode of Raw generated an overall average of 1 million and 527 thousand spectators, the worst figure in recent history for Vince McMahon's federation. One of the Superstars rumored to be set for a big push in WWE is Lars Sullivan.
Referred to as The Freak, Sullivan returned earlier this year at WWE Draft 2020 and is now part of the roster of Friday Night SmackDown.
