Candice Michelle's Push, RAW Ratings Turmoil, More
By Tim Brown | September 22, 2008
-- The reason for Candice Michelle's major push is because she might not be a long-term player for the company, and they want to use her now while they can. The feeling is that she is injury prone, and they're building her up to put over Beth Phoenix before she takes time off again. Another reason is because they feel she is more marketable than Mickie James, because Mickie is more into the actual wrestling and less into the glamorous "Diva" stuff.
-- The low 2.6 RAW rating last week is said to sting WWE management even worse because they had heavily advertised CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho in a cage and Kane vs. Rey Mysterio almost a week in advance. These numbers are the worst WWE has seen since before the Attitude era.
