Low WWE ratings

Whenever television ratings go down, Vince McMahon and his paranoia go up. He is in that mood nowadays because his numbers have been declining at a rapid rate. There is a fear within WWE that if the ratings drop below 2.0, which is not that far off, then USA Network executives are going to come calling with some questions. At that point, McMahon is going to make life a living hell for the people who are around him backstage.

WWE adds more security

For a long time there, Vince McMahon was accused of not doing enough to protect his performers in the ring. Whenever an incident with a fan would take place, WWE generally did not go after the individual with their strong legal department. That opened the door for others to jump the rails or throw things into the ring. After the latest incident with Roman Reigns at Night of Champions, management has now decided to add more security to live events.
