Titan Sinking WWF 1995 book

Scott Keith recommended this book “Titan Sinking: The Decline Of The WWF In 1995” on his blog and I thought you Crappers would want to give it a read.

It looks like it’s a great overview of a year that brought us a smorgasbord of WrestleCrap!

    Interesting to read, especially since history seem to repeat itself.

    Isn’t the Raw ratings almost down to what they were around 1995 (around 2.5-3.0, compared to the 6.0-7.0 numbers in the Attitude era)?

    Here is a history chart:

    That is definitely going on my Goodreads list!

    Here’s what been bugging this whole time: do they consider shows that have been DVR/recorded as part of the ratings? I’m pretty sure Nielsen may have a system in place by now to monitor this, but I’m not 100% sure if recording a show and then watching it later on counts.

      I heard that they do monitor recorded shows, but I’m not sure if those are separate from live viewings.

    • Jinx says:

      I think at one point in time DVR’d shows counted as a completely separate rating that didn’t really matter and the ratings that mattered the most were the live viewings. By now, they’ve pretty much taken this into account and have DVR’d views as part of the total views along with the live watches and have it noted down exactly how many were live or recorded.

    I have read it! It was a really good read! If you have Kindle Unlimited its on there as well.

    I finished Titan Sinking a few weeks ago and found it overall a good look at 1995 and quite interesting. Although I’ve watched wrestling for the better part of 30 years and know a good bit of the details covered in the book, it definitely filled in some blanks in the history of WWE/WWF as well as provided a lot of background on the events of that year. Well worth checking out if you have an interest in the history of wrestling.

    I just finished “Titan Sinking” recently & it is an amazing read! It is available for $4.99 on the Kindle, & worth every penny! It’s full of Wrestlecrap inductees such as King of the Ring 1995, etc. One of the best books written by an outsider on the WWF.
