During his appearance on WINCLY, Hugo Savinovich spoke on why he believes the WWE’s seeing a decline in ratings. Here’s what he had to say:
I reported on Lucha Libre Online that with all of the audience being at home, you have some of the worst ratings from SmackDown to Raw. Horrendous. So, it tells you that, it’s not that they don’t like WWE, it’s that the fans are fed up with the creative ideas. That also goes into NXT and AEW because regardless of who wins the Wednesday Night War, the two ratings combined don’t make for one good rating. There’s a big issue about getting it done right to hook the fans. Regardless if you are ROH, WWE, AEW, Impact, New Japan, you have to get the fans back and you’ve got to respect them. I think that’s the problem – with Vince it’s easy to put the blame on him because he’s the No. 1 guy. But all of us should take responsibility and improve them. I was just talking to Konnan and my deal would be to create fresh stories. We’re gonna be working to create a flamboyant character for AAA but we have to be careful not to piss off the fans like Lashley, Lana and that Rusev story.
[WWE] wanna stick with stories that the fans don’t like and stories that have potential, they’re doing microwave airing where foods gotta be done in 30 seconds… Now with no fans at the arena, it shows more the lack of creative that you have or don’t have.
