Have people completely forgotten about the Ruthless Aggression era?

Attitude Era was fine, but the current era has (much) longer matches. I'm fine with less swearing, but I wish they could do blood when it was really necessary, like during the blowoff to a feud.

Being over doesn't mean someone is a big draw, guys like Orton, Ryder, Sheamus etc. are all over with the crowds but that doesn't mean they are draws to those people who flip-flop between watching Raw or something else. I'm not saying anyone is or is not a draw btw just saying live crowd reactions and drawing power are not the same thing

As noted before, the December 26th WWE RAW Supershow scored a 2.93 cable rating and 4.47 million viewers. This is the show where the trend stopped of RAW's second hour losing viewers from the first.

The CM Punk and John Laurinaitis segment drew a 2.94 quarter rating. Booker T vs. Cody Rhodes lost 149,000 viewers while Backstage segments with John Cena, Zack Ryder, Big Show, Kelly Kelly, John Laurinaitis and others gained 78,000 viewers. Ryder and Eve Torres vs. Natalya and Tyson Kidd with a John Cena interview lost 67,000 more viewers.

Cena vs. The Miz and the attack from R-Truth gained 325,000 viewers, which is below the average but better than recent weeks for that timeslot. Big Show vs. David Otunga with one of Show's arms behind his back and the Alberto Del Rio interview with The Bella Twins gained 34,000 viewers. CM Punk vs. Jack Swagger to kick off the Gauntlet match lost 367,000 viewers while Punk vs. Ziggler gained 172,000 back, doing a 2.91 average rating for the main event.

The overrun segment with John Cena and Kane gained 543,000 viewers for a 3.26 quarter rating. With Kane and Cena ending RAW, the rating for Male Teens went from a 2.8 to a 3.1, Males 18-49 went from a 2.8 to a 3.2, Female Teens went from a 1.0 to a 1.3 and Females 18-49 stayed at a 1.0 rating.

Short answer: No.

Long answer: It's not reasonable or responsible to bring back the Attitude Era, since what made that era "great" in most of our memories were the performers and the risks that were taken, many of which didn't really pay off. SCSA, HBK, HHH, The Rock, Mankind, Kane (and the rest) made the WWE great in that era. You can't bring back those guys. All you can do is try and build a similar fan response/draw with what you have today.

Gotta love how rating don't matter when IWC darlings like Punk and Bryan are champions.

But that's the problem. Movies and music today doesn't suck balls at all. It's the greatest music ever recorded.

You don't believe me?

Ask your 13 year old cousin.

What, you're opinions are more correct than his? Maybe today, yeah, but fast forward ten years and a bunch of his generation peers start writing for Pitchfork.com...

CM Punk, John Cena, Randy Orton...greatest era ever.

I dunno, doesn't make sense to me, maybe I just don't understand the ratings system well enough.



Cena, yes. Orton, I disagree, it's arguable at best.
this only pertains to cm punk right? let me guess if orton was champ it doesnt matter how over he is he just isnt a draw right? but punk on the otherhand is.

Default Re: Ratings DON'T matter to us

Ratings do matter (to act like they don't is silly) but most people here have no fucking clue how to statistically measure one person's influence on a show so they just talk out their ass and use it a way to justify their pre-existing opinions and somehow "win" the internet. It's so fucking stupid and the fact that it was justified in this way already in this thread - without a hint of irony - is fucking I don't know what.
