Re: With ratings gradually decline longterm, do you see RAW going back to Attitude?
I agree with the Attitude Era is gone and it wont come back stuff.
I mean smackdown, ever since it was created Smackdown! was pg, it doesn't matter about the ratings of a TV show. I bet you can make a kids movie than is better than an R-Rated movie? It's just WWE is just in a rebuilding stage at the moment. What they do need is decent crowds and I think that the WWE has put a belt on Ryder, Punk and Bryan to try and get a reaction from the fans. But no. The Crowds are dull. When Kane returned, I thought a tumbleweed rolling across as Kane made his way to the ring, when The road dogg Jesse James returned I swear to fuck I heard crickets.
Oh and what about Bryan Grandmaster Sexat Christopher? I'm not even going to mention that RAW.
Crowds need to stop sitting on their asses, folding their arms and just watching. WWE is more enjoyable when the crowd is fired up. I bet ya if The Rock returned with a shit reaction from the crowd... it wouldn't been a great comeback as it was. Y2J got a decent reaction when he returned aswell, CM punk chicago MITB was one of the loudest of 2011. But that was like a Mid-Card Pop in the Attitude era.
I think that's what the Attitude Era marks are missing, the pops, the noise and the chants. WWE doesn't need/want Attitude Era shenanigans. It just needs good crowds. That is my opinion anyway because I enjoy and I get excited for RAW when there is a really crowd on the show.
