Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Starbuck and NearFall bringing it as always. I don't get why people still argue Punk beeing a draw. He isn't the type of guy who will scare away viewers as some biased posters claim, but please tell me a single feature of him that would make a non-WWE fan tune in specifically to see him, there is none, he has very good mic skills and is doing a fine work as a heel but this is of no concern to the general public, they'd rather have a charismatic character with a unique (read: unique, not roided up) look who stands out and Punk has neither of those features, nor does he have an identifiable character, he's chickenshit heel #132998723. That said, even despite the lack of having any tangible mainstream features he still manages to at least draw above average by wrestlers standards due to Heyman involvement and storylines, but WWE really needs to use him better, and let him become something unique, give him a legit look for starters.
Now, take the rest of the roster, who also lack any mainstream abilities for the most part, but unlike Punk, have shitty storylines and no mic skills, which is why they are drawing fans away. WWE really needs to start concentrating on storylines, giving their wrestlers personalities, revamping their looks and make them stand out, that's what the WWE machine is for ffs.
