Raw just went off. It was watchable, which is a few steps up from where it has been lately. It's an hour too long and the same shit happens every week. Ratings are in the toilet (1.0 is a good number for wrestling nowadays, compared to 6.5 in the glory days) and the USA Network executives have reportedly asked for more adult themes, which they actually seem to be delivering on, beyond just noticeably stronger and more profanity (although they're not beyond side-splitters like suggesting an agitated character switch to decaf). Really it's an awful show, though Smackdown and NXT are pretty good. In any event you're not missing much by not watching anymore.
Vince McMahon is said not to want a star being bigger than the company again, like Stone Cold or the Rock or Hulk Hogan.
