News on WWE Trying to Retain Viewers in Hour Two; Maria Kanellis/Pregnancy Angle


— One of the strategies that WWE used last night to retain viewership is putting the Undertaker on TV for a long time at the top of hour two. Hour one is almost always the most watched hour with people starting to tune out after it, so the hope was that with Taker there, it will help keep people around.

— The Maria Kanellis/pregnancy storyline is likely one of Paul Heyman’s ideas as it will play into a long-term program where the mystery will be to try and figure out who got Maria pregnant if it wasn’t Mike. According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, this is definitely a Heyman storyline.
