RAW Rating Drops This Week, JR’s Contract, & More

Ryan Clark


RAW scored a 3.5 cable rating off hours of 3.5 and 3.5. (3.5 HH — 4,939,000 – 10pm — WWE 3.5 HH — 5,075,000). WWE is not happy for sure.

Jim Ross has provided another update on his current contract status with World Wrestling Entertainment in a new blog entry. Here is what Ross had to say: “The WWE and I are negotiating for a new multi year contract. The negotiations are progressing, but we havenâ<80><99>t ironed out all the details as of yet. Hopefully, this matter will be finalized soon. This is the same status as it was the last blog this subject was addressed. In a perfect world I would like â<80><9c>A-Rodâ<80> money, but I am willing to negotiate down from that figure.”

I saw a report earlier today stating that Y2J already has backstage heat. That’s totally false and the reporter should have never even speculated like that.

WWE did a video and photo shoot with a majority of the roster in Naples, Florida over the weekend. It’s believed the footage was taken for the upcoming Royal Rumble PPV commercials. They had 65+ wrestlers there. Remember when they did this last year and Booker T and Batista got into it?
