If credit should be shared, shouldn't the blame be as well? The lack of consistency in this thread is nuts. But it's not surprising, every single person is biased because of mark wars~!
What else is there to discuss outside of the most overpushed person on the roster and his (lack of) drawing abilities? That Santino and Zack Ryder lose viewers every time they're on? Not very interesting, is it?
And the logic is indeed mind-blowing. Orton as champion on Smackdown gets 1.7 and all blame is placed on him without anyone even looking at segment breakdowns or anything beyond the full show ratings but Raw is doing terribly bad with Punk as champion and him main eventing the show yet he always gets away with it because his segments gain viewers since the rest of the show has viewers tuning out at a rapid pace. And to further show Punk's lack of drawing abilities, ratings are constantly going down with him being the centerpiece of the show. At least when Cena's meaningless feuds main evented, they didn't reach the upper 2 area for a month straight!
First it was "PUNK CANT DRAW BECAUSE WWE MAKES HIM IRRELEVANT!!!!11" now there's new excuses like "He gains back the 500k viewers that tuned out and still gets called a ratings killer!!!! ARGH!!!!".
