There was also talk of how Sheamus needed to re-sign with them, too. Anyway, the Dunn/Levesque power struggle supposedly encompasses many matters in WWE today, with Dunn leading Vince more toward the "sports entertainment" avenue and Levesque emphasizing all-around solid talents, etceteras. I don't know how much truth, if any, there is in this but like I said, it could be a possible explanation for why WWE's product has been so largely shaky these past few months.
Hmmm. I've heard of the Seamus stuff but not to that extent. Didn't know it went deeper than that either. I guess when you look at the whole thing together it does provide a plausible reason for the utter shambles WWE has become as of late. Two opposing sides fighting for two different things with a damn lunatic in the middle lol. What we see on TV every week is the outcome.

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

Is it fair to say that the interest in this Rock/Cena program is gone? It doesn't surprise me at all, the angle they have gone with it is fucking stupid. "Reality era" clearly is not resonating with fans, people want to see entertaining larger than life characters, not petty one-upping shoot promos

Was the RAW after the Royal Rumble the only time they got over 5 million?

They've got over it for some individual segments but for the overall show? I don't know. You'll have to go look back through the thread and see.

Haha, sounds like we get to see the outcome of a Shakespearean tragedy every week, LOL.

Indeed. Starbuck and I have both frequently dismissed the whole concept of "owning" someone in a promo as the end-all of everything, like in that thread last week on the Jericho/Punk promo. Perhaps Cena actually subscribes to this terrible outlook?

Mmm... I think so. And of course that was because everyone wanted to see the aftermath of Daniel Bryan retaining in the cage match with the two giants.

Speaking of whom, it might be interesting post-WM to compare ratings patterns of Rocky Raws with Starless Smackdown.

Smackdown gets 60% the audience that Raw gets. Their rating might go up but they have the potential to do that because it's a smaller market compared to Raw.

Yep they pretty much ruined the main angle for Mania, and it'll be interesting to see how the ratings look from now to Mania.

SMARKS ARE JUST LIKE MARKS, DIFFERENCE IS THEY DON'T REALIZE IT.
