Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Rock and Austin became this popular because they were part of a good show and interesting story lines. CM Punk simply cannot become as popular as Rock/Austin by being part of a crappy show.
CM Punk is not a victim of the times. If he were arround during the Austin Era of RAW, he'd be a midcarder. He certainly wouldn't be taking Rock or Austin's spots. If he were in WCW, he'd either be just another member of the nWo or directionless in the midcard.
