Ah, my mistake. Apologies.


On Topic: I do think the majority of the Ratings problem is WWE's doing rather than an individual. Wrestling is no longer "cool" or popular in the mainstream, and anyone who remains (like us idiots who discuss it's ratings more than what actually happened in the show) have to endure the booking/writing that is incredibly poor & lacks continuity.

Then we have the superstars themselves, the heels really struggle for heat unless you're blessed with Vickie Guerrero's voice. The faces themselves struggle to create themselves into mainstream stars and resort to cheap pops (right here in x town!!!!).

The titles mean nothing, especially the WHC title, the same title that Goldberg/HHH/Flair/Benoit made famous, meaningless. The brand split needs to return or the titles unified, asap. Wins and losses are traded on Raw/SD far too often, how are we supposed to take Cena/Ziggler at TLC seriously when Cena has already beat him clean on Raw just last week?

3 hours is just too long. Anyone saying this isn't a problem is deluding themselves. I have to record and fast forward to anything worth watching every week. Every damn thing insults my intelligence (Hornswaggle anonymous GM) and it's the same matches every week (Orton vs Barrett/Del Rio part XXXXXXX). There's nothing fresh to look forward too. Just think back to the hype caused by Punk/Ryback's stare down, it wasn't anything amazing, but it was fresh and people were hyped solely for that.

I struggle to find reasons to tune in the next week, there's not enough cliff hangers. When Heyman peered out of the limo at the end of the Chicago raw in September, that had me dying to watch Raw the next week. I know someone of Heyman's history and status can't return every week, but you catch my drift, I hope.

Too many ads, recaps, tout, twitter and general media whoring.

Be a star.

If anyone can say that the problems listed above are NOT effecting the ratings as much as Punk/any one individual is, you're deluded with anti-markism.
