Triple H: WWE Will "Take A Hard Look" At How To Attract More Fans
Moving away from record lows
WWE ratings have gradually declined in recent years and viewership continued to fall during the COVID-19 pandemic, with Monday Night Raw registering record low viewers of 1.472 million on July 5, 2021.
The company has since received a boost in the ratings with the resumption of touring from July 16, though, and Triple H told the North State Journal that WWE will "take a hard look" at how to attract more fans to their programming each week.
"It never is one thing. We see this as a moment in time to shift everything. I think you'll see it in just the layout of everything, the set designs, the way it's presented. There's a greater emphasis on utilising the spaces that we have and the TV aspect of it while still engaging the fans. A lot of that comes from the time we had to experiment inside the ThunderDome," Triple H stated.
If WWE can retain viewers as the audience becomes used to seeing fans again remains to be seen, but WWE will be hopeful following the initial boost.
The company has also stacked up the SummerSlam card so far with John Cena vs. Roman Reigns officially set for the pay-per-view and Bobby Lashley vs. Goldberg to be booked for the show in the coming weeks.
