WWE survey on Raw issues features some interesting questions

WWE sent out a survey to the members of its Fan Council yesterday, with quite a few questions that show the company knows there are issues with its flagship program, Monday Night Raw, and they want to gather as much information as possible to help address those issues. There is only so much they can glean from Nielson ratings, after all.

The questions:

- How often do you typically watch Raw?

- Which of the following video streaming services do you subscribe to?

- How have your viewing habits of Raw changed compared to the past?

- Where do you see advertisements about upcoming episodes of Raw?

- Do you ever change the channel during an episode of Raw (including during commercial breaks)?

- What are some reasons why you fast-forward during recorded episodes of Raw? (Commercial breaks, match not exciting, Superstar/Diva not interested in, backstage interviews, talking segments)

- What is the primary reason you fast forward during recorded episodes of Raw?

- In general, do you watch Monday Night Football? (Yes, No, depends on who is playing)

  • Backstage interviews
  • Backstage interactions
