Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

At this point I'd say Show is a bigger draw than Punk, but compared to the standards we've been comparing Punk to? The likes of Rock/Taker/Cena? I wouldn't call Show a "draw" except in special cases. Though he can pop bigger numbers, bigger than Punk on occasion, he's not consistent, which is the same problem Punk has, though Punk is the WWE Champion and pushed as the number 2 guy, so he sticks out more.

But as I said, on occasion, Show can be a big draw. Like for WM24. Now granted, Mayweather was "The Draw" of the PPV, but I think putting him in a match with Show, because of Show's size that makes him a larger than life figure (to some degree), plus it matches so well with Mayweather, I'd say Show ended up being a bigger draw with Mayweather than anyone else in the company at the time would've (including bigger draws than Show normally like HHH, HBK, Flair, etc.), except maybe Undertaker and Cena. For Taker that's mainly due to the fact a "Streak vs. Streak" match would've been a huge deal, and Taker much like Show has always been a big special attraction draw, though Taker's also generally a big draw as well as the deadman. For Cena he's the number one guy in the company, even back then, and Cena/Mayweather would probably be the biggest match they could make.

I'm watching you...
