Some rather interesting news are coming out of the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. Since it was taped in London, there was a delay in the airing in the United States. WWE took that opportunity to edit up some things to their favor. They made sure to tone down the huge reaction that Antonio Cesaro received from the fans. They used that pop and made it seem like it was Randy Orton that the audience was going wild for.

WWE discovered some disturbing news when they checked the ratings for Monday Night Raw this week. The show lost more than 1.5 million viewers in the span of seven days. The company has trouble keeping people interested after Wrestlemania. This does not sit well with Vince McMahon. A lot of wrestling fans opted to watch the season finale of Better Call Saul and the NCAA Championship game between Duke and Wisconsin.

In a rather interesting bit of news, a lot of fans in attendance at Monday Night Raw were said to have left before the main event even started.

Apparently, a lot of these fans were already able to predict that Randy Orton was going to be the one to challenge Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules, so they walked out.

Some good news if you're a fan of the New Day. Since management could not get them over as baby faces, the plan now is to turn them into heel. As seen on Monday Night Raw, Xavier Woods and Big E Langston were a lot more aggressive in the ring than normal. They came close to cheating on a couple of occasions. The losses and boos will eventually cause them to go evil. This would mark the first heel turn for Kofi Kingston since joining WWE.

In a very depressing bit of news, WWE is losing a lot of their market share in Mexico now. Monday Night Raw is no longer being aired on free television in the country. It is still available for those who pay for premium channels, but that is a severe drop in viewership. Smackdown has already been removed from the country. Vince McMahon has been desperately trying to resolve things down there because he views it as a major market and asset.

Good news for those of you who have been complaining that Brock Lesnar does not make enough appearances in WWE. The world heavyweight champion is currently scheduled to be on Monday Night Raw next week. The belief is that he will kick start the promotions for his upcoming title match against John Cena at the Royal Rumble. Management might also have him tease a potential feud with Seth Rollins as well, in order to keep the Money in the Bank briefcase relevant.
