Order WrestleTalk Magazine #6!

WWE Raw Aug. 27, 2018 Ratings
It seems like quite a few people took a permanent toilet break following last week’s Raw as the viewing figures this week were down.
The show was down eight percent from last week bringing in just 2.84 million viewers even though it had less competition in the time slot.
But don’t despair, last week’s was unusually high as it rolled right off the back of SummerSlam and most people had forgotten that there was a life outside of wrestling by that point.
Interestingly this week’s show had a solid first hour and then the viewers started dropping like flies, including a huge 10 percent dip in the third hour, right in time for the main event, the big dog chased them off like they were the postman.
But who cares about who wasn’t watching it, it’s what the people who were thought that matters.
Oli gave the show a high Avrawge and the majority of you agreed, 55% to be precise, while 26% thought it was Cor.
Seth Rollins Is The Best
Cor worthy was the match between Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens for the Intercontinental title.
One fan said it was one of the top 5 matches of the year, to which a cheeky Rollins replied:
I’ve got the other 4 too.

He’s not been watching NXT. Or New Japan. Or Impact’s Slammiversary. Or 205 Live.
Real Reason Kevin Owens Quit WWE
But his brilliant match came at the cost of Kevin Owens’ WWE career as after the match KO grabbed a mic and said I quit before disappearing off behind the curtain.
Since then his Twitter account has gone dark with all the tweets wiped except one depicting his title runs and one depicting his run ins with Braun Strowman.
He’s also been moved to the Alumni page of WWE’s website, sitting pretty next to the Spirit Squad’s Kenny and the Dungeon of Doom’s Kevin Sullivan. Stu? Is that you? What are you doing in the Ks?
Fortunately though word on the street is that this is all a work and in reality, Owens has recently re-signed a new contract with WWE and isn’t going anywhere.
Kevin Owens, Paul Heyman Guy?
But he might be coming back better than ever.
According to Barnburner’s Fired Up Podcast, there are big plans afoot for KO. He could return to TV as Paul Heyman’s next client.
Now obviously Kevin Owens is pretty darned good on the mic himself so don’t expect the same dynamic as with Brock Lesnar. Who couldn’t be trusted not to do a swear. But a pairing with Paul suggests that Owens is coming back as a top guy within the company and hopefully should be getting some Universal Title action down the line.
