And John Cena vs. Dolph Ziggler and the conclusion of that segment gained 640,000 viewers, which is normal level, but it still was only a 2.84 overrun, which is the second lowest overrun figure (even the show that did a 2.71 in September hit 3.03 for the overrun), behind only the week they did Punk & Bryan & Ziggler in the trios match, dating back to 1997.
So Punk haters, this MUST mean Cena can't draw either right? Punk vs. Swagger even did better. Now please, enough of this horseshit about one person drawing. It's not up to one individual. These ratings aren't Punk's fault, they aren't Cena's, not Jericho's, Kane's, Miz's, Orton's, etc. Have you not seen the garbage storylines that they are airing? This is the problem. You've got a WWE championship situation with no story at all with a challenger nobody gives a flying fuck about. Then you have this Kane/Cena/Ryder stuff which may just be some of the worst TV I've seen WWE do. They want good ratings, they need good storylines. It's just a shame to see people put the blame one on man when it's an entire show's doing.
