Monday’s “Straight Up Steve Austin” show drew 841,000 viewers for USA Network, down from last week’s 1.097 million viewers, according to Showbuzzdaily.com.
Powell’s POV: Like Raw, Austin’s show took a big hit due to the Monday Night Football doubleheader. On a side note, WWE kept telling viewers during Raw that Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the guest on Austin’s show. Apparently, Earnhardt has really let himself go in retirement and now looks exactly like the hilarious Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias. Anyway, next week will feature a two-part season finale (with Earnhardt as one of the guests).
