That picture is so fitting.
Please, someone, I beg of you, superimpose a 'Forever Alone' meme face over Cena's head.

Oh and to the shmuck saying Taker isn't as big a draw as Cena or that Rock has always been the bigger draw and star...have you, like, ever watched a fucking wrestling show in your life? Rock was fantastically popular, of that there is no doubt, but back from late 1997 until the end of 1999, you could not, repeat, could not TOUCH Steve Austin. Its preposterous to even think that anyone during that period could eclipse him, because they just didn't. The Attitude Era is by in large the most profitable period the WWF has ever had, and Steve Austin was the living embodiment of everything that Attitude was.

As for Taker, the guy was a star for 12 years before John Cena even debuted as a rookie in the Fed. He's one of the most recognizable characters in pro wrestling history and one of the few that could take a gimmick and make it work for this long. He's had so many classic matches that its hard to keep count. The thing about Taker is that he was a dominant presence through numerous different eras. He was one of many extremely strong characters. Nowadays, the only reason Cena stands out is because what else is there around him, besides a handful of guys? I will guaran-fucking-tee you that were this 1998, Cena would be at BEST challenging for the European title against the likes of D'Lo Brown and X-Pac (who would still get way more of a pop than he would) and nowhere near the IC, let alone main event, picture. He can get the fuck out of here with his 10 meaningless title reigns of today, where he has TWO heavyweight championships he can win.

To say Undertaker isn't as big a draw as Cena or that Rock has always been a bigger draw than Stone Cold clearly indicates that you're highly delusional, in extreme denial, a troll, or mentally retarded. In whichever of these 4 cases that might apply, my response will always be the same-please fuck off and leave.

Quarter 4 is always a poor draw, especially since they jam a lot of ads and commercials into it. Same as this week, Cena´s promo didnt even take up 1/3 of that quarter.

And obviously Undertaker is a bigger draw then Cena, mostly due to the fact that he isnt around as much. You usually know its something special when he shows up.
But if he was there every single week he would draw the same as the rest. Same with The Rock.

Quote:
Rock’s first interview plus Alicia Fox vs. Eve Torres gained 338,000 viewers. That’s probably a ton for Rock and losing for the match.
Bullshit reporting. Its obviously because of Eva Torres. 225,000 viewers gained last week and now this. Rock should be lucky to share a quarter with a draw like that.

Just look what happend to the other history lessons when he didnt have Eve to back him up :busta

I voted the wrestlers draw, but it's a bit of both. The brand didn't do shit back in the early 90s, the stars who were left kept the company alive. Not saying the brand doesn't draw, but let's face it, saying the wrestlers don't draw is just stupid. You're basically saying the Attitude Era could have been huge without Stone Cold and Rock, and that clearly isn't true at all.

Reading through the pages, I noticed some of the same posters who hate Cena for his "bad matches" and corny promos also hate Punk for his "bum look" and shoot promos. Seems there is no pleasing some of you, kinda wonder why you even watch in the first place.

Liberal propaganda with hidden motives. So many falling for it.
Big part of money this group raises gives back to staff and top executives, so show some respect for job creators and don't dump this crap on us.

Well, isn't that an interesting breakdown...not. The fact that The Rock vs. John Cena is underperforming like this is just mind boggling. WWE, as with everything, have fucked this thing up by letting the 2 of them go out there and try to embarrass each other in front of the world instead of having them work together to build a story and give this match the epic storyline it deserves. I'm simply stunned at just how badly this whole thing has turned out. I bet you don't have that retarded smile on your face now, John, because you're helping turn one of the legitimate biggest matches in wrestling history into this stinking pile of crap. I never thought I'd be feeling so indifferent to this match but after the past 2 weeks, first with Rock and his twitter shit and now Cena with his stupid ass smiling, I don't even know what the hell they're even fighting for anymore.

The only thing that seems to be consistent is HHH/Taker/HBK. Over the past few weeks I don't think it's unfair to say that this is the program that really has people's interest. I wonder why? Oh, maybe it's because when one of them tries to get serious with the other, he didn't get fucking laughed at. Completely unfathomable for John Cena I guess. I digress here, that's a pretty strong opening for the show and I can't help but feel that had it gone on at 10pm it would have done ever better than that. Speaking of which, the tag match that did go on at 10pm did just alright but I don't think that's necessarily a good number considering the HUGE numbers the HIAC has been doing in that same spot. I'm not even going to bother getting into the video package stuff. I don't care.

For next week with Taker/HBK I think that has to go on 10pm. Or maybe they will let either the concert or rap go first, then the next one at 10pm and then do Taker/HBK at the end because people will know that it's happening at the end and therefore should all tune in to see it. I don't know. I'm looking forward to Taker/HBK, I'm looking forward to Jericho/Punk (hopefully they get promo time although with such a promo heavy show already I doubt it) and I don't know what to feel about Cena/Rock. I have a feeling this is going to blow up in their faces tbh. This thing needs some substance and FAST.
