Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
Do ratings help to decide a Wrestler can draw or he is over with the fans ?
No it's money. People on here put way too much stock in the ratings. Ratings are used for to see if sponsors what to put their ads on a particular TV show. What makes WWE money are PPV buys, live event attendance, and merchandising. Ratings are a help, but they aren't the end all be all that people in the IWC claim to be.
People complain about newer talent not getting over, but what they mean is that their favourite isn't getting over, everyone else can go to hell. I'm for as many people getting over as possible, it would improve the show and the more over people there are, the more avenues there are to push new talent, yes, your favourites are more likely to get pushed if there are more over people to feud with.
