Everything can't stay the way it is forever and that includes the decline that WWE ratings have seen in the last few months specifically. Always on the brink of innovation and trying to stay ahead of the curve, and this is just another step to stay ahead of the curve. It was reported late last week that starting soon ESPN will be running a weekly segment that will cover events from both Raw & Smackdown and will likely feature a different superstar each week.
Attempting to look at this from an unbiased perspective I don't know how well this will work for ESPN as most non-wrestling fans don't have a tremendous amount of respect for the wrestling business as a whole or anyone is a part of it or watches it. I do think more people will end watching ESPN, because of it which is the whole point of this segment at least from an ESPN perspective. But the question is will this help WWE or not change a thing, you need to be the judge of that because I can't tell you!!
More of we need to just wait and see how this works, because this could be a very interesting partnership if things work out for both parties. Just watch from a far!!
