Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
These seem like conflicting statements. In my estimation Bryan doing that big of a gain in an unusual slot proves that he and Sheamus should be taking credit for that 9pm draw or at least some of it.
You'd be a fool not to think that CM Punk would somehow be involved with the Cena/Show match, having him on commentary was good because it might of kept some people watching who might normally not be interested in a Cena/Show match plus to see what he would follow up his actions last week with. Good to see that between the three of them they can pull big numbers. I'd like to see this sort of thing continue in coming weeks.
Show has always been a big TV draw. Remember that quarter hour with Johnny L and Show. Gained like a million viewers. The weeks after, Show continued to draw in them ratings. Cena is also a big TV draw.
So Cena vs Show was bound to draw big. If anything, Punk should be lucky to work with them as he hasn't done that great in the rating department.
