Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Megastar Brock was doing great segments in his return and after that. His interview on random slot gained huge, his contract signing did big overrun, the awesome video package gained all over the program. Now? It was simply WWE's fault, you don't tell your audience the special attraction is there, you're not going to get the extra viewers watching for him. + This program with HHH has that dead feeling in the air when you know that Lesnar is going to lose and be a complete waste.
Rock/Cena disappointed because they made it about Cena and no one wanted to watch that. It was no surprise that the ratings went down when the promos of his started to go away from a dream match aspect and into a whining aspect that featured his played out rap character that no one had seen since 2005 or him trying to talk like an adult all of a sudden when he was apologizing full stop to Edge/HHH/Michaels and everyone else for years. Cena brought the Rock ratings down yet of course, the Rock fans brought the PPV buys through the roof.
Lesnar was paid 5 million and if he doesn't go over Cripple H in some form at Summerslam, it will be the biggest waste of time of 2012 by far.
That was unbelievable because the moment people realized that this is just a series of attempts to get WWE's charity case over, they refused to support it, Cena was losing week after week, the more he talked the hypocritical BS, the more he lost. He was lucky that The Rock is such a monster force worldwide and the greatest money promo of all time that he was able to bring this program not only to "successful" level, but to "record breaking, iconic" caliber.
