Backstage News: HHH/Booker, RAW, Trump/WWE, More

Tivo and videotape watching doesn’t affect the Raw ratings much. Taped viewership of Raw over the one week period after the show aired totaled 57,000 homes for the 6/11 show, 63,000 homes for the 6/18 show, 35,000 homes for the 6/25 show, and 57,000 homes for the 7/2 show.

Advertisements have been running on The Score in Canada promoting the upcoming SummerSlam pay-per-view, advertising King Booker vs. Triple H as officially happening at the event.

Donald Trump made it very clear to WWE that he did not want to be the focal point of the advertising for the WrestleMania 23 DVD. Trumpâ<80><99>s deal with Vince McMahon was that he would work for the company until the show and the day of the show, but did not want anything further to do with the company beyond that date. Not wanting to be a deal breaker, McMahon has complied, and has shied away from advertising Trump on the WrestleMania 23 DVD.
