WWE: Backstage reaction to low Raw rating

The low rating for RAW this week was not common knowledge backstage at yesterday’s TV tapings. Usually they get the numbers sometime during the afternoon, so either WWE didn’t want people to know about the low numbers or they didn’t get them yet. Most within the company didn’t know about the ratings until it broke on the internet, and the reactions were variations of "Holy S***!" There’s no word on how Vince feels about the number, or what actions he’ll take. While there was definitely competition from Monday Night Football, WWE has gone up against the NFL’s fall ratings in the past and a 2.6 for RAW is bad no matter how you look at it.
