I'm not a big fan of Punks current work but I'm not stupid enough to believe that he is a ratings killer when there are a lot more boring characters on RAW. When CM Punk has a segment, people stop to listen whether you like him or not. There's so many factors that go into ratings spikes and dips that it's almost impossible for any of us to really pinpoint why and discuss this intelligently because none of are qualified enough to understand this topic fully. It's always just a bunch of people talking out of there asses.
I don't think we always share the same opinion but I completely agree with that.

Why so many cowardly bad guys too?
I'm not one that should judge punk as I'm pretty casual but he's just not that intriguing to me. He gets good reactions from audiences and meh reactions from others from what I've seen.
Loved umaga by the way!
Completely agree on cowardly bad guys. It's a good gimmick for a few guys to have (worked awesome with JBL because he did everything he could to make the crowd hate him) but we see it far too much and even Henry lost some of his luster now.
And same, really wish he got a big title at one point but he had an awesome career.
