Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

TNA gets a 1.1 WWE gets a 3.1. This is apparently the new standard. You know what is to blame? The state of professional wrestling in the United States. I can still enjoy New Japan and CMLL, and they aren't even in English, but WWE, more specifically RAW, it's just mediocre every week. It doesn't matter if you advertise and deliver on The Rock returning to RAW if the two hours before he shows up still suck.

A two-hour and twenty minute WRESTLING show should not feature less than twenty minutes of total WRESTLING. When the highlight of your show is a video package and a one-liner, then you're doing something terribly wrong.

Let's Get Something Clear About The WWE + Ratings

Simple question. Do you believe wrestlers draw ratings, or do you believe the WWE brand and the quality of the show draws ratings?


Last night was clearly evident that the latter is correct. The WWE Brand is what reels in the ratings, the WWE brand is cold right now. Obviously having quality characters on the telecast helps a great deal, but I find it absurd how posters on WF continually drag wrestlers in the mud over their supposed 'failed' attempt at drawing a rating.


Its happened with Punk
Its happened with Cena
Its happened with Jericho
Its happened with Triple H
Its happened with literally everyone except...

Dwayne.

Until last night.

Trolls who want to stir the pot will now claim that The Rock cannot draw. That's not entirely true. Do me a great favour and look at the quality of performers from 10 years ago, and look at the quality now.

WWE 2002

Main Event Wrestlers
The Rock
Hulk Hogan
Brock Lesnar
Kurt Angle
The Undertaker
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Triple H
Shawn Michaels

Upper Mid Card
Eddie Guerrero
Chris Jericho
Chris Benoit
Edge
Booker T
Kane

Mid Card
RVD
Rey Mysterio
Christian
The Hardys
The Dudleys


Compare that to today, and then you will truly understand why the ratings are average. You will also understand that technology has made it easier to access wrestling on the internet, through your iPhone or recording the programme on TiVo. Everything is different.

So tell me, do wrestlers draw, or does the wrestling brand draw? Let me know.

Inb4 Rock316 says the Daytona was on and that is why ratings were so low.

It's the same 4 million people who tune in every week.

Re: Let's Get Something Clear About The WWE + Ratings

There are certain wrestlers like Rock, Cena, Undertaker, and HHH that draw above average numbers, but no one can bring the average number up.

I'm watching you...

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

However basing the success of a product of it's ratings is stupid, base it off its profits.

WWE has a loyal fanbase and gets millions if viewers every week in the US alone, i think its doing pretty fine.

The Rock! Best Of All Time.


Spoiler: Cena Wins

Re: Let's Get Something Clear About The WWE + Ratings

sometimes I wonder if the people who post things about ratings actually believe what they are saying... but I remember how I acted at 18 years of age.. so it's not surprising some people post the things they do.
