Jamie Jones: Takedowns continue for McMahon

Here are the notes and news items from the week in pro wrestling: The news keeps getting worse for Vincent K. McMahon. If falling from the ranks of the billionaire club wasn’t enough, the latest episode of “Raw” notched its lowest rating of the year.

The taped episode in London dropped to fifth among television series and specials behind “The Bachelorette,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Voice” and “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”

• The voice is back. Jim Ross, the legendary WWE announcer, returns to television Monday for a boxing special on Fox Sports 1.

• Triple H is the coverboy for the June 2014 edition of “Muscle & Fitness” magazine.
