Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Good rating overall. WWE should stop booking Big Show vs Daniel Bryan, D Bryan is the biggest draw in the WWE, but beeing the biggest draw doesn't equal beeing the biggest, tallest guy, nobody draws when you face someone so large that you can't even see the real star on the screen. I guarantee if you put Rock and Austin in a segment with the Big Show towering all over them the ratings would have tanked just as much. Once D Bryan took some distance so we could see him and cut his epic ***** promo, the ratings went back up. I mean imagine watching porn with some hot chick and all you see is some creepy guys flabby fatass , balls and anus from behind doing her hiding everything of her, would you still watch it? Point proven.
As for Jericho...ugh, I guess fans really consider him a midcarder despite his career achievements, no other way to explain the ratings tanking/not going up as expected everytime he's on. This is why I always disagreed with him beeing willing to put over anybody. If this guys isn't beeing made credible and gains some wins against other bigger stars, the feud against Punk will tank from a casual, and imo also smark perspective. No credibillity = no fucks given. Have him get a win over some huge star such as Cena or Triple H in a random RAW ME, sounds like a desperate, drastic meassure but I really can't think of any other way how to make him relevant, cutting great promos alone simply isn't cutting it, especially with his dumb trolling storyline beforehand that actually got the opposite of the desired effect with no conclusion whatsoever.
Also, by current standards, a 3.42 overrun is far from bad, isn't it one of the highest in the last two months?
Rock's segments with Big Show were in the 6's and 7's.
And it's not like there's a CM Punk feud that didn't tank from a casual's perspective either.
