Debut
Hulk Hogan
Since WWE wants to make this is a big edition of Monday Night Raw, the company has enlisted the help of Hulk Hogan and friends to help spike the ratings. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have already been confirmed for an appearance, and there are talks that an nWo reunion could be taking place. Another person from Hogan's past has now been added as well. Paul Orndorff is scheduled to make an appearance tonight.

Hulk Hogan
The white and black is headed back to WWE next week when Monday Night Raw comes to us live from Portland. Hulk Hogan will be celebrating his birthday on air, and he has a couple of buddies coming back to join him. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have reportedly been confirmed for the event, and the belief is that WWE will be doing some sort of nWo reunion to boost television ratings.
August 6, 2014
Bully Ray
TNA is really hoping to spike the ratings for Impact Wrestling this week. The company has already filmed footage of Bully Ray putting Dixie Carter through a table, and they're using that to draw in viewers. The company has even released a public statement, calling August 7th, "National Put Your Boss Through A Table Day". The belief is that TNA is trying to convince Spike to give them a new television deal.
August 4, 2014
Vince McMahon
Some more bad news for Vince McMahon. It has now been revealed that WWE has lost their television deal with NT1. The two companies have been doing business for approximately eight years now. NT1 has decided to drop WWE from their programming due to declining ratings. McMahon still has his deals with cable and satellite companies in France, but there are fears that those deals could be dropped as well.
June 14, 2014
Seth Rollins
Rumors going around is that WWE decided to do a heel turn for Seth Rollins at the last minute because they wanted to generate some hype and spike up the television ratings. If that's the case, then management is sure to be disappointed because Monday Night Raw actually lost some viewers this week. It wasn't a big loss, but many were expecting a huge increase.
June 11, 2014
Seth Rollins
Reports are surfacing now that Vince McMahon made the decision to do a heel turn with Seth Rollins on Sunday afternoon, shortly before Payback 2014. The belief is that he pulled the trigger on the move as a response to the low ratings that Monday Night Raw has received over the last couple of weeks. WWE is hoping that this provides a quick boost to the numbers.
June 5, 2014
John Cena
The belief backstage in WWE is that the company is setting things up to where there will be an episode of Total Divas that will be centered around the wedding of John Cena and Nikki Bella. No word on whether they are getting married in real life or not, but the belief is that they can spike the television ratings by doing that on Total Divas.
April 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In Memphis, WWE did a segment on Monday Night Raw where Triple H finally caved in and gave Daniel Bryan what he wanted at Wrestlemania 30. That was unanimously praised by fans online immediately afterwards. However, that crowd pleasing moment did not translate to the ratings, as the numbers for this week has continued to go down.
March 20, 2014
Vince McMahon
While WWE will attempt to come up with ways to change the course of the television ratings drop for Total Divas, Vince McMahon and company still have a lot of faith in the series. A good amount of fans went online last year to search for full episodes of Total Divas, which leads many in WWE to believe that some people simply did not get a chance to tune in.
March 18, 2014
Vince McMahon
Since the show has become one of the main focal points for the entire company, WWE officials are extremely disappointed that the ratings for the season premiere of Total Divas were among the lowest that they have seen for a first run episode. It failed to crack the top 100 for Sunday night. Vince McMahon could order his company to do more promotions on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown to help.
March 18, 2014
Buff Bagwell
During a recent interview, Buff Bagwell stated that nothing can save TNA at this point. He also made sure to mention that he was not upset with the company for refusing to hire him. Bagwell questions Dixie Carter and her decision to not bring in bigger names, including himself, to help increase the ratings. Interestingly enough, he stated that even the Rock could not save TNA.
March 10, 2014
Vince McMahon
An interesting stat about the WWE Network has surfaced this week. Vince McMahon decided to air WWE Main Event live on his new subscription service, yet ratings for when the episode aired on ION actually increased from the week before, leading many within the company to believe that fans might prefer to watch things on television instead.
March 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Despite all the hype about a potential return by CM Punk, ratings for Monday Night Raw surprisingly dropped this week. Vince McMahon was hoping that the ratings would have remained strong after an episode in which Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar and Undertaker all made a special appearance for WWE to promote both the WWE Network and Wrestlemania 30.
March 5, 2014
MVP
I've said for years even when I was with WWE that I want TNA to do well, I never saw TNA as the enemy that would be ridiculous, I love professional wrestling. Part of the reason why I chose to go to TNA was because it's not good for the fans or for the industry when there is just one conglomerate and nowhere else to go. The most prosperous and entertaining time in our business was during the Monday Night Wars you had two companies that were fairly evenly matched, both with top tier stars, and they were battling with each other for ratings. That meant everything had to be fresh, everything had to be edgy and everyone really had to rack their brain to come up with exciting storylines, all of the guys had to work really hard and there were 12 million people a week tuning into wrestling. Now there is less than half that, if you're in the wrestling industry now in the States there are only two places to go centrally, WWE or TNA. I would like to try and help facilitate, creating a situation where the WWE has to recognize TNA as a potential competitor and if you know like I do, WWE holds all the marbles then for the artists, the talent it's not good for our business, competition is good for business." - MVP discusses competition within the business
February 22, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Since Sting is not signed to a contract yet, it appears that WWE is now considering Hulk Hogan for the role of on screen general manager. The company feels that he is still a draw and believes that he can help boost ratings on Monday Night Raw. Management wants someone to counter Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
February 22, 2014
Vince McMahon
While some backstage, including Vince McMahon himself, were said to be concerned that the Olympics would affect the ratings for Monday Night Raw, WWE managed to maintain a firm grip on their viewers this week. Numbers actually went up slightly, despite NBC drawing in 22.4 million viewers to the global sports competition.
February 12, 2014
CM Punk

The expectation was that ratings for Monday Night Raw would rise this week because fans would tune in to see if CM Punk would make his return or not. However, the opposite took place. WWE saw a 12 percent drop in viewership, which has to be a bit alarming since it is the time period between the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania 30.

February 4, 2014
Batista

When Batista made his return on Monday Night Raw, WWE officials were said to be rather upset with the lackluster reaction from the audience. However, management then saw the television ratings for the segment and placed the blame on the Dayton crowd instead.

February 1, 2014
Vince McMahon

"It's ridiculous. I hate to sound like I'm attacking the WWE or (I) devalue what they did because Vince McMahon, say whatever you want -- and he's always smashing us and talking s—t about us, but I will tell you this, I was watching WWE I was a little kid and Vince was the commentator in WWE -- this guy has been kicking ass, breaking rules and doing things that people said he couldn't do over and over and over again. Now I'm older I don't get the whole thing, it doesn't work for me, but what he's able to do, the ratings he's able to pull and the things he's done ... And when I look at his model and he's basically taking everything in and devalued it. Saying everything we do is worth $10. That doesn't make sense to me," White said during a media luncheon on Monday. If he pulls in 2 million subscribers, he's crushing it. So it's a risky move, it's a crazy move, but Vince has been doing risky, crazy s—t since the beginning of time. If anybody can do it, maybe Vince can do it."

Brutus Magnus

Impact Wrestling drew in one of the highest ratings that the show has seen in a couple of years this week. The belief is that WWE fans tuned in this week to see what would happen during the match between Sting and Brutus Magnus, as many are hoping that the legendary performer will end up at Wrestlemania 30 this year.

January 25, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
A lot of action took place in the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Fans went crazy as they saw creative signature spots from Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Kane and Bray Wyatt. However, it was Cena, much to the dismay of online WWE fans, who climbed the ladder and captured the heavyweight championship.
June 29, 2014
CM Punk
To calm down the Money in the Bank 2014 audience, WWE opted to go with another divas match as a filler. Layla El and Summer Rae battled in a match, where Fandango served as the special guest referee. Fans were so disinterested in the segment that a CM Punk chant broke out. In the end, Layla caught Summer with a kick to gain the pinfall. Layla and Fandango kissed after the match, while a despondent Summer looked on.
June 29, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a rematch at Money in the Bank 2014, Alexander Rusev was successfully able to conquer Big E Langston again with his submission move. It was the typical match that you would expect from the two. There was a botched spot where Langston speared Rusev to the outside of the ring. However, the two of them more than made up for that by doing a great closing sequence.
June 29, 2014
Cody Rhodes
In a match that was slightly held in higher regards than a filler match, Goldust and Cody Rhodes, who worked under his Stardust gimmick again, defeated Curtis Axel, who was sporting a ridiculous looking singlet, and Ryback. The match was designed to highlight the Stardust character. Since there was a little bit of action after the match, there is a chance that WWE could be continuing this feud.
June 29, 2014
Dean Ambrose
In a very exciting match, Seth Rollins outlasted Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam and Jack Swagger to capture the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. WWE wants to continue the war between Ambrose and the Authority, so they had Kane coming out and providing assistance to Rollins. Despite the heel tactic to win the match, the Rollins victory was actually cheered by a good amount of fans.
June 29, 2014
Adam Rose
Since WWE needed a filler segment at Money in the Bank 2014 and wanted to showcase Adam Rose a little bit, he was given a quick match against Damien Sandow, who was dressed as Paul Revere. Match was not really all that noteworthy, and Rose got the win after hitting the Party Foul finishing move. This was a segment that belongs more on Monday Night Raw than a pay per view.
June 29, 2014
Cameron
Naomi Knight was given a crack at the WWE Divas Championship at Money in the Bank 2014, but it was Paige that walked away as the reigning titleholder after a DDT and a pin. The match was designed to further the eventual split between Naomi and Cameron, who was at ringside and taking glee whenever her tag team partner was in peril against Paige.
June 29, 2014
Erick Rowan
Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso had their biggest challenge to date when Erick Rowan and Luke Harper challenged them for the WWE tag team championship at Money in the Bank 2014. The twin brothers delivered by retaining the belt. The Usos performed a double superplex on Rowan before finishing him off with consecutive flying splashes from the top rope.
June 29, 2014
Batista
In a rather surprising move, WWE had the Shield win convincingly against Evolution. Batista and Randy Orton were the first two performers to be eliminated from the main event match at Payback 2014, but both provided interference for Triple H after their eliminations. After taking a brutal beating, Roman Reigns picked up the win for his team. Many expected Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to be eliminated during the match, but WWE opted to give them a dominant ending.
June 2, 2014
Alicia Fox
In a match designed to be the buffer between the two main event features at Payback 2014, Paige successfully defended the WWE Divas Championship against Alicia Fox via submission. Afterwards, Alicia continued her story line of going crazy whenever things do not go well for her. The audience reacted more to the post match antics than the actual match.
June 2, 2014
Bray Wyatt
In a segment filled with plenty of interference from Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Luke Rowan and Erick Harper, John Cena was able to defeat Bray Wyatt in a Last Man Standing match at Payback 2014 after Cena put Wyatt through a big black box and covered him with an even heavier box. Rumors have it that WWE will be continuing this feud and something could trigger that on Monday Night Raw this week.
June 2, 2014
Rob Van Dam
At Payback 2014, Wade Barrett successfully defended the WWE Intercontinental Championship against Rob Van Dam after picking up the pin fall victory, thanks to the Bull Hammer. The performers placed some doubt in that finish when it appeared that Barrett had injured his arm while smashing into the corner post after RVD ducked away from the move outside the ring.
June 1, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a glorified squash match at Payback 2014, Alexander Rusev defeated Big E Langston via submission to continue his push up the ladder in WWE. He was able to slap on the camel clutch after delivering a big kick to Langston. Afterwards, he held the submission move on for a short period of time before Lana instructs him to let go. Rusev should be placed into a new feud this week.
June 1, 2014
Cody Rhodes
In a match designed by WWE to accelerate the split between the brothers, Curtis Axel and Ryback defeated Cody Rhodes and Goldust in the second match of Payback 2014. Ryback picked up the pin fall victory for his team after delivering the Shell Shock to Rhodes. Afterwards, Rhodes told Goldust that he needs to find a better tag team partner for himself.
June 1, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Despite being in the airplane spin for quite a few rotations, Sheamus was able to capture the victory over Antonio Cesaro, who had Paul Heyman with him at ringside, at Payback 2014 by surprising his opponent with a small package. With the win, Sheamus retains the United States Heavyweight Championship and will more than likely be placed in another feud by WWE tomorrow.
June 1, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In a match filled with quite a few over the top spots, Daniel Bryan successfully retained the WWE Championship by defeating Kane at Extreme Rules 2014. A running knee followed by a pin enabled Bryan to get the pin fall victory over Kane. Prior to that spot, Kane was put through a burning table and carried on a forklift, among other things.
May 4, 2014
Paige
Since WWE needed a Divas Championship match at Extreme Rules 2014, Paige was given the victory over Tamina Snuka after delivering her submission finisher. The segment was short and quick, providing only a couple of spots outside the ring. It basically served as a pay per view buffer between the steel cage match and the world title match.
May 4, 2014
Bray Wyatt
After suffering a loss at the last pay per view, Bray Wyatt needed a victory over John Cena at Extreme Rules 2014, and he got just that. Wyatt received a heavy dose of interference from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, but Cena still managed to overcome those odds. As Cena was walking out of the cage, a kid showed up and began singing, which provided enough distraction for Wyatt to hit his Sister Abigail finisher and walk out for the victory.
May 4, 2014
Batista
In the most anticipated match at Extreme Rules 2014, the Shield defeated Evolution. Roman Reigns picked up the pin fall victory over Batista after a Superman punch and a spear. Triple H, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose fought through the audience before Rollins took out all four of them by hurling himself from the elevated stands.
May 4, 2014
Big E Langston
The first title change at Extreme Rules 2014 took place when Wade Barrett defeated Big E Langston to capture the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Barrett picked up the pin fall victory after delivering a running Bull Hammer finisher on Langston. A highlight of the pay per view was Langston spearing Barrett from the ring to the floor.
