More On RAW Homecoming, Ultimate Fighter, RAW News

– If the magnitude of the RAW rating (3.2) was not bad in itself, the fact that football competition was weaker than last week (when RAW did a higher rating) certainly seals the deal. The Ultimate Fighter 2 also performed poorly, scoring a mere 1.4 rating.

– On the subject of The Ultimate Fighter 2, in a fight that Dana White called the best of the season, Jason Von Flue defeated Jorge Gurgel to eliminate the latter from the competition. While not the most stylized, the intense fight went the distance and ended with a unanimous 29-28 (two rounds to one) scoring in favor of Von Flue.

– In an update to the earlier report, cards through as late as October 22 list Edge as taking on Big Show, further indicating plans to keep Edge on RAW following the match next Monday. As reported, the working plan is to have Matt Hardy lose the match and head to SmackDown.
