Yup. No matter how much people on here love it, it's not what the company needs.

You have to blame both Rock & Cena here no one cares about this feud anymore it seems. If WWE can't get these ratings up to the upper threes the next few weeks this Wrestlemania may not get the million buys Vince is looking for and if that happens the egg will be on both The Rock & John Cena's faces.

This explains everything I dislike about John Cena.

Even a ratings god like Rock can't overcome the worst roster of all time in the coldest period in wrestling history with a top guy that doesn't understand the basic of this business. In fact, amazingly Rock did it last year but they drove away all of them as expected. Just like they did after the Rumble. I'm happy to see the numbers, maybe now Vince will think on more desperate attempts to get Cena over.

Than what would do with Cena try to give the rub to someone like Cody Rhodes?

For a show so dedicated to Rock/Cena & Trips/Taker W/HBK. The rating was very shit.

Invest more time in your fucking title matches WWE. Or else I'll join the 2-3 million people that have already stopped watching your shit.

If the ratings are so low during WrestleMania season W/O football, get ready for the Summer when the product is plodding around. It will be 2.5-3.0. WCW territory.

No Rock, Taker, HBK, Jericho, Triple H to help add star power on the brand. It will solely rely on Punk, Cena, Orton and Rey Mysterio *if he ever returns*.

WWE is screwed.

Why is it the worst roster?
Why is this period not doing so good?

Because Creative/booking sucks. Look what they did to your home boy in the few appearances he has made......the roster has to deal with that shit all year.

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

oh their not completely screwed... BUT... SANTINO had the BIGGEST pop of the night. I was there live, and I just turned it on at home, and they piped DOWN the santino chants after he won the belt... the ground was shaking in the garden, and it did not come off like that on the tv...
to my point..
Santino is a character..
John Cena is reality..
we need more santino's
and LESS John Cenas...
Can't he be the Prototype again?
Hell, I'd take thugonomics Cena over this reality crap..

Boston is the BEST CITY in the world!
It is the City of Champions.
Vince screwed Bret!
RIP Steve Bradley.

All you people bitching about the ratings.. Heres the formula for you. Theres 300 million legal citizens in the US. Now take that and divide it by the 900 channels on my tv. Then add in the Brittish and EU, plus the Asian continents, divide it by the time zones, subtract the spoilers, and bingo.. Theres your ratings.. So shut the f up aboooot ratings!

I don't think it's fair to conflate "reality era" with "one-upping shoot promos" (as if anything we've seen so far really counts as a shoot promo). The Punk/Jericho promo from last week was as much a product of the Reality Era, and that was absolutely fine, in content, reaction on here, and in ratings. MITB was the very genesis of the Reality Era, and that was a huge interest spike, and one of the most creatively promising times in the last few years.

But you're absolutely right that it's the wrong angle for Cena/Rock, at least in this incarnation.

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

There's only one thing WWE can do now. As you can see by those quarter hours from the early fall, Mason Ryan = RATINGZ!!!!!111

Give him a Lesnar push, make Cole his manager and have him destroy that indy janitor guy from the Waffle House at Summerslam.

Who cares if he maims or kills a bunch of guys between April and August? WWE needs the RATINGSZ!!!!!111
