-- This week's WWE RAW drew a 3.3 cable rating, with 4,714,000 viewers. The show did hours of 3.53 (3.5) and 3.11 (3.1). That is a huge drop in hour two and is obviously not good news.
-- As noted last week, WWE officials went back and forth on whether or not to hold the Mask vs. Mask match at last week's SmackDown tapings in Mexico City.
Once they had announced it, the match was pulled and put back on the booking sheets about 3 times. At first, there was a feeling that they should hold it based on disappointing ticket sales, hoping that the match would draw. Someone brought up that the Mask match is the biggest thing they could do with Sin Cara and it should be done on a pay-per-view, not a taped TV show. After discussion, the match was held because WWE had already announced it to fans.
Regarding the payoff from the Mask match between the two Sin Caras, it's said that most were disappointed in it.
