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.

Vince McMahon was surprised to find out that approximately 600,000 viewers turned away from the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, despite there being hope that Sting would show up in person to respond to Triple H and his challenge. The show was up against the series premiere episodes of Better Call Saul, and that played a factor.

While the promotion has started gaining a little bit of steam with the internet wrestling community, there is a good amount of disappointment from those involved with Lucha Underground in regards to their ratings. The numbers simply are not as high as management was expecting. The hope is that someone like Alberto Del Rio is going to be able to help move the needle a bit. The company definitely needs more recognizable names.
