Another Bad Ratings Trend For WWE, Chris Jericho’s Brazil Incident



– Chris Jericho’s Brazilian flag kicking incident took place at the beginning of his match against CM Punk and the two wrestled for about 8 minutes before WWE officials took action. John Laurinaitis, who was in charge of the WWE crew in Brazil, came to ringside and told Jericho to apologize, which he did. Jericho was not rushed out of the building or the country. He left with the rest of the roster for Ecuador.

– With RAW’s ratings on the downswing in recent weeks, another bad viewership trend for WWE is that there are also fewer people watching the show on delayed viewership (DVR).

Back when The Rock returned to WWE in February 2011, DVR viewership increased dramatically to around 400,000 viewers per week. Over the past 6 weeks, DVR viewership has ranged between 277,000-370,000.
