Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Well how come Punk's hours that featured him prominently drew decent viewership and the 3rd hour, which featured him in an unannounced, surprise 3 minute segment in the overrun, was what drew so terribly? As far as everyone was concerned he'd left in hour 2. This rating does NOT fall on Punk. Then again, most don't, yet people just like to blame him anyway. Regardless, in this case there is no possible way anyone can twist things around to make him appear to be the big ratings killer.
Exactly... how in the fuck was he the focus of the show? He was there for maybe 20 minutes in the first hour, left, and didn't come back til the very end. Yeah... that was the focus... sure. And that third hour... yup, the ghost of CM Punk was haunting the camera and scared away the millions wanting to tune in but just couldn't because of CM Punk.
Most of the show seemed built around AJ being terrible if you go by what was on screen. I just don't understand these people so desperate to hate a wrestler they spout this crap to try and prove their hatred right. It's quite pathetic.
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
