While WWE set an all-time record low for Raw on Monday, the rating can't be viewed negatively given the number and the night.

The show averaged 2.66 million viewers, down only 14 percent from the near record low from the prior week. The past two times Raw has aired on July 4th (2011 and 2005), the ratings fell 23 percent and 41 percent respectively from the prior week ...

From the hourly breakdown, it appeared to be the most loyal/hardcore audience since there were no upswings or downswings from start-to-finish:

8 p.m. 2.66 million viewers
9 p.m. 2.67 million viewers
10 p.m. 2.64 million viewers
In terms of historical stuff, lowest rated episode since 1996. Next week is also expected to be down since MLB Home Run Derby takes place during the same time.

Probably TNA's best chance in years at getting something close to their first live Monday episode.

Major League Wrestling reported on their Twitter account Wednesday morning that the free agent had signed a multi-year agreement with TNA Wrestling -- a report Ojinnaka refuted, telling them he has an offer from the company but hasn't signed as of now ...

At one time it appeared that Ojinnaka was headed to the WWE and would start at the Performance Center in September, but Dave Meltzer reported in last week’s edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that WWE backed off of signing the former football journeyman because of a 2009 domestic violence allegation that led to him being suspended from the NFL for one game ...

MLW also tweeted that Lucha Underground/AAA have not made an offer to Moose, but that TNA and ROH are still in play for his services.

Henry is set to appear at Harley Race‘s WLW event titled “Night of Champions 2” and since the advertisement didn’t specify what he’d be doing, people were wondering if he’s on the way out.

A rep for WLW tells us “many people are getting the wrong idea” and he won’t be participating in any sort of wrestling capacity — it’s just a meet and greet/signing.

We’re also told WWE approved the appearance, which our sources within the company have verified.
Henry had teased leading into Mania 32 that this year was likely his last in the WWE.

Fun facts about Final Deletion from Borash's appearance on Wrestling Observer Live:
  • Borash is a huge drone nerd and even rigged one of his up with fishing line and a bobber and caught a sunfish
  • The whole setup was improvised out of shit they found on Matt's property, including the dilapidated boat
  • The birthday party setup was really Maxel's since his birthday was the next day and it was done by Reby Sky
  • Jeff has sculptures just sitting around everywhere that he built, including a 12-foot-tall alien
  • Matt came up with the persona on the spot when filming the first Broken Matt Hardy vignette and they've just gone with it ever since
  • Matt is 100% committed to this character. "It's not performance art, it's creepy!"
  • Borash wants to go back and film at the Hardy estate again because there's no limits to what they can do

Some other sheet news includes:
  • Tyson Kidd recently revealed on Twitter he will be taking next season off from Total Divas due to health reasons.
  • During yesterday's ESPN segment, Bray Wyatt teased at a possible future feud involving the Rock by saying they have some "unfinished business" to take care of.
  • The executive producer of Lucha Underground recently apologized on Twitter for publicly trashing TNA during yesterday's Final Deletion show.
