Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
I agree with what you're saying. But when people are claiming it's the worst roster every, I can't tell if they mean the talent or the booking. Because in my eyes the talent is there. It's just that the people at the top aren't losing to the people coming up. And when the lower guys do win, it's ridiculously underhanded. The stop start pushes for heels is fucking embarrassing and the lack of storylines on Smackdown is even worse.
It's the booking, it's the talent, it's creative, it's having an aging Vince McMahon being the sole caller of shots, it's the fucking God awful commentary that destroys everybody else to put over Michael Cole, it's the developmental system, it's the effect of no competition, it's the residual effect of the death of the territories, it's everything. Nobody is going to prosper in that environment, at least not to the degree they need them to. All this change everybody keeps talking about, none of it is going to mean anything if the root of the problem isn't solved first. CM Punk can scream about being and brining change until he's blue in the face but if the rest of the company isn't prepared to move with him, it's all for nought.
