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...
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.
Main Event Wrestlers
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Upper Mid Card
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.
