Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
The Austin 96-97 is a terrible argument because he wasn't a main eventer until 98, and that's when business went through the roof, You think that every example is a history lesson or something when it was a completely different situation, completely different era and most importantly completely different wrestler, one is not even main event material and will never be a real star because he's not even believable, the other is the definition of the word badass and the total package in every aspect of wrestling. If you live in a bubble, you will try to compare a meaningless fake shoot promo with the iconic "Austin 3:16", I will go with Heyman in 2001 or Styles in 2006. After all he got, If he can't do it? he will never be able do it, not every wrestler has that in him.
Miz was a terrible drawing champion and with every breakdown Meltzer posted he always talked about how weak Miz was as champion, The Miztory segment drew a nice quarter, but the overall show rating was down significantly, so that wasn't even close to a "star-making performance".
