Monday Night Raw, the former “A-Show” of the WWE hasn’t lived up to its former name. Its’ ratings are suffering a lot and when compared to its Blue counterpart, its content isn’t that good either.
Putting the Universal Title on Kevin Owens sure seemed promising but bookings have taken their toll and nothing new has been presented as of late. Cruiserweights need more time to show their magic and the Tag Team scene needs something fresh and new.
Here are 5 of the most important things WWE should do to get better ratings for RAW.
#5 Restart the US Open challenge.
Roman Reigns is a very controversial superstar. Just like John Cena, he is met with mixed reactions (mostly boos), everytime his theme song plays. But John Cena redeemed his respect from the fans after he came up with the “Weekly US Open Challenge”.
It was a brilliant idea and no one knew who was going to challenge Big Match Johnny to a match. It was mostly NXT Stars or underdogs on the Main Roster. Regardless, everyone got a push and all of them were young guys that were over with the fans, namely Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Cesaro, etc.
Maybe WWE could do this in a completely contrasting manner, meaning, they could have Superstars from the past come out to challenge Roman for his championship and help him get over with the fans. This will establish Roman as a better enforcer and will help him to earn the fans’ respect.
With the rumours of returns of icons like Goldberg, Christian, RVD and even KURT ANGLE, this could be truly epic.
