Is WWE going to die? Of course it's going to. It's not going to live forever. That's quite absurd.

I can guarantee right now that if nothing majorly explosive happens in the wrestling industry the next couple of years, WWE, and wrestling might become extinct. It DESPERATELY needs another Austin or Hogan, because those are the only two guys who got you to watch wrestling, who got you into it in the first place. Sure, guys like HBK, Undertaker, and the Rock were there as well, but those were the guys that KEPT you watching, not got you started. Right now, guys like Punk, Miz, Orton, hell even Cena are in the same category as Rock and Taker and Hart were. They keep you watching, and that's exactly why the ratings aren't budging, and going down. As soon as the viewer gets tired of those guys he tunes out, and each year, it seems the interest in those guys is decreasing.

Face the fact that in the old days, there was so much stock put into one man, that viewers had no problem tuning in the entire 2 hours watch him do whatever. I don't see that in Cena (albeit he's the closest we've gotten) or Punk or Miz. At this point, the ONLY thing that can save WWE and bring them back up is one guy, and we don't even know who he is, he might not even be wrestling right now. Yes, history has proven that putting that much into one guy has been dangerous, but it's also proven to be quite effective overall in terms of bringing MAJOR popularity to the WWE.

EVERYTHING in the WWE right now, from stocks, to buy rates, to website views, are down, and they're decreasing dramatically each year. They need another Austin or Hogan (NO OTHER EXCEPTIONS, JUST those two) that can bring them back from where they are.

I gotta ask, why are people so consumed by ratings? I mean, in the grand scheme of things, what does it matter?

The fact that John Cena interrupted is a bullshit excuse for the ratings drop. Most Rock marks around here go around thinkin' that he's the greatest draw of all time, and that he gains ratings/viewers no matter what he's doing. If that was really true, regardless of Cena interference or not, the rating would have held at 3.5, not have dropped.

Well, there you go. Rock was in a segment that lost viewers. Accept that. Doesn't mean he's not a draw. Course he is. Just means, he's not as fucking great as most Rock marks make him out to be. Stop riding his dick, and come back to reality. This is 2012, not 1999. Even Rock loses viewers occasionally, so before spittin' fire about other people losing ratings, think of your precious little Rock losing viewers first.

That's more of a joke more than anything else. The truth is the promo went on for too long. People don't want 25 minute overruns.

Wait, but it doesn't matter right? It's the Rock. He's ALWAYS supposed to draw, no matter what. Doesn't matter if it's an overrun, people WANT to watch him, nevermind that it went on a 25 minute overrun. The more of the Rock on RAW, the better right? He's supposed to be this ultra mega movie star who's the biggest draw of all time. He's supposed to be the guy that takes the WWE back into the promised land of the "4.0" ratings right?

Right, coming back to reality now? Back when Punk was losing viewers, people were praising him like a god, saying stuff like that. Just pissed me the fuck off. And now that Rock is revealed for a guy who's losing viewers, I get this shitty excuses that people slammed when Punk was losing.

Now, not dissin' on you if you didn't say it, but some people did, and that's the only reason I am. And I say this as a huge fan of the Rock, but some people just piss me the hell off on here with how far they take him. Slow it down. Again, it's fucking 2012, not 1999. Stay in the past all you want, but don't bring it's irrelevancy into ratings arguments when they're two completely different era's.

So The Rock part did a 3.5 followed by a 3.3? Actually lost viewers? Last time I checked there are only one guy to blame for that. Sure isnt CM Punk.
The logical reason is that his promo dragged on too long and people got bored.

Face it, the big stars from the Attitude Era cant draw on a longterm basis in todays wrestling. People tune in for nostaglia reason and when they have gotten their fix they dont care. It happens both in WWE and TNA.
The Rock is not someone that will draw WAY more then the other guys. He will surely draw more, but not instantly spike the ratings close to 4.0.

Rock went from 3.5 to 3.3? Rock marks ain't gonna be happy about that. How legit is that news source, though?
