- As seen briefly during Monday's live Raw broadcast, a fan entered the ring near the conclusion of the match between Ryback and The Miz. The individual was immediately tackled by WWE security personnel and referee Scott Armstrong and pulled away from the ring. WWE has released video of the match online and the live shot of the incident was cut out.

Honestly I don't get what they're trying to do, they know full well that the WWE has tighter security than an NFL game, and if they did get into the ring unscathed, what are they looking for? A clothesline from hell?

Attention. Simple as that. Some people are actually pretty damn clever when doing stuff like that. Something to make the show just a little more interesting. got to hand to ryback for staying professional tho after the guy ran in. pretty sure ryback would have torn his head right off

lol yeah, wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one of those "meat-hook" clotheslines.

Thought the Mick Foley was great in his segment with Punk, but it seemed like it didn't really matter by the end 'cause Punk didn't really make any mention of anything they were talking about when he was with Cena.

---

Really disappointed that it turned out to be Ryback standing there at the end. One week he's facing jobbers, the next week he flattens the IC Champ and by the end of the same show he's in the WWE Title hunt? So much for the slow build-up, and so much for the IC Title's credibility.

I know it was wishful thinking but I was really hoping it was Undertaker or something (fitting because of the Hell in the Cell stuff)... usually people only get "scared" of Taker or Kane the way CM Punk was spooked by Ryback's appearance. Big let-down, IMO.

if it does lead to a ryback title hunt, please God, no. when he loses to cm punk that's pretty much it for ryberg. there's no way wwe would put the title on that guy

The Ryback thing is a tease/back up plan if Cena isn't good to go in time for HIAC. If Cena's back it was just a tease for the future.

- As noted before, the September 24th WWE RAW did a 2.72 rating with 3.78 million viewers - the lowest of the year and the lowest rated non-holiday RAW since 1997.

Ouch!

Monday night Football is nothing new for WWE to be up against, the fact its the lowest RAW in 15 years could be alarming. Interesting to see how next week will be for ratings.

hopefully this is the start of them cleaning up the woman's division. i think they signed some other hot shot lady who works the indies to come in. next step, scrap the divas belt and bring back the woman's championship. let's get some credibility back in that mess of a division

Too bad Beth Phoenix, probably the best wrestler in the womans division, has also asked for her release from the company and it is rumored she will be gone sometime in October.

I think the issue is the women who can actually compete in a 5-10 minute match aren't given the chance and when they are, it usually has one who can vs. one who can't and the outcome is not pleasent.

Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

i just hope her leaving is just a leave of absence of sorts. i'm pretty sure most of the other women feel the same as gail kim did when she left, with aj and eve getting most of the air time (not complaining, though)

since triple h is bringing in credible female wrestlers in to the fold, she might be convinced to stay, if they keep pushing the woman's division and have actual matches that will keep us watching, instead of a using them as a bathroom break. i mean, if we can't get a main event where cena doesn't piss us off, we can at least get a decent woman's match

Let's face it: the second WWE retired the Women's belt and put the atrocious Diva's belt in its place, that division was no longer seen as serious. Even the look of the title itself is a joke - at least Cena's spinner WWE belt had a gimmick to it and it fit his style when he won it.

WWE did sign a new talent (just forget her name), and it looks like she comes from a wrestling background. Hopefully, they don't blow this one.

Didn't watch RAW outside of Lawler, Foley, and the Ziggler match. Linda's senate campaign is really ruining the product. Doesn't help that the same guys are in the WHC title picture or that Punk's been off his game for the better part of the year. Glad to see tag teams getting a chance but they really need to turn Cody into a big star and use Kidd/Gabriel, McGillicutty/Curtis and The Colons instead.

On another note, I thoroughly enjoy watching NXT and TNA on a weekly basis. TNA's big pay-per-view is coming up soon, Bound For Glory. The card is stacked as well, Aries/Hardy, #WTTCOTW/La Raza/Dream Team, Storm/Roode, TNA/Aces&8s, Tara/Tessmacher and probably Joe and Ion defending the TV and X-Division titles respectively. Obviously a lot of people here don't watch TNA, but you guys should really give it a chance, they've been on a roll for the past year.

I wouldn't say Punk has been off, as he has had outstanding matches. His promos were watered down face promos and now are tangled up with Paul Heyman. He'll hold on to the strap until the Royal Rumble where he will no doubt lose to The Rock, setting up another Rock/Cena Wrestlemania main event :picard:

I hope A-Train errr Prince Albert errr Tensai got a fat ass contract when he signed with WWE cause with him losing to Ryback pretty much cements his status now.

And what the frack is with Ryback beating the IC champ? Cody Rhodes brings back the old belt and makes it mean something then WWE craps all over it again.

I all for the tag team division needing a reboot but they starting to over kill it already and it really has not even got off the ground.
