Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Falkono has a point. Best example is a random HHH vs Taka in the middle of the show on Raw in 2000 (Much like Punk vs Clay this week). Hunter was there wrestling twice on TV each and every week (Punk only wrestles one time a week on TV). And Taka was even less charismatic and less over than Clay.

And still, Hunter/Taka was a huge success (both in the ratings and live) and Punk/Clay wasn't. Can Punk defenders or anybody claiming the champ is not important to the ratings in general explain this situation?
