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

I think Starbuck is spot on.

They both of them are going out there to try and embarrass each other. It's not about a storyline or whatever. It's about trying to see who can out do the one another on the mic and by the numbers, people simply don't care about that. The RAW before SS when Rock was on the show, they gained over 1 million people for that final segment.

Ever since it's just gone down hill.

There needs to be some violence added to the mix. They should have had Rock lay out Cena's dad or something, add some intensity, make it personal..

Go and see how much they pay themselves in salaries and how much of the money actually goes to Uganda and then come back and say that.

Kony hasn't been active in Uganda for about 4 years, abductions are down by about 80-90%, so why are they doing this now?

They are using the new forms of communication to manipulate a young audience who know nothing about what is going on in Africa.

Emotional propaganda, nothing more.

It doesn't surprise me people are being turned off the Rock-Cena program, I'm being turned off by it so no doubt more casual fans are too. It's just not that entertaining when these two cut promos together, simple as that.

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

3 more Raw's to go.. Next week will be Rock Concer/Cena Rap. I'm pretty sure they will get physical in the last 2 Raw shows. With Cena delivering AA to the Rock and Rock Rockbottoming Cena in those last 2 weeks.

Its already so predictable.. I hope Cena doesnt fuck the physical interaction too. Like smiling after immediately recieving Rock Bottom or something like that.

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

If he does that, he will definitely kill this fued, i listened the observer radio and iam very surprised that both Meltzer and Alvarez didn t mention that Cena doesn t sell Rock's promo, Alvarez said Cena did an awesome job during this promo, this guy is crazy or simply a big mark, i don't understand their analyse of this last segment.

What booking would that be, it can't be Roode/Storm or Roode/Sting because they've both been booked great, there's no booking problems with Angle/Hardy, Styles/Kaz/Daniels, Crimson/Morgan and Aries Championship reign has been booked good, not to mention that the Garrett Bischoff storyline has been booked very good.

I don't have a problem with people saying something like TNA has bad booking but if someone says that then they should be able to explain why. For instance I think the Rock/Cena feud was booked great up until the Raw after Wrestlemania where Cena confronts Rock after being screwed out of the World Title and his first response to seeing Rock is to smile, that right there killed the feud and it didn't help that they then had Cena win the World Title a few weeks later meaning that Rock's actions didn't really have an effect on Cena.

Anyway Cena losing viewers for his promo just confirms what I already suspected, the Cena/Kane feud combined with Cena's actions during his feud with Rock have damaged his drawing power. I know the whole idea is that he's targeted at kids but even kids know that people get angry when they're pushed too far, I mean imagine if Hogan had responded to Andre's heel turn by smiling at him and acting like Andre's betrayal was an everyday thing that didn't affect him.

Well you know what, it's not about you, it's not about me, it's about the masses.

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

Thank God for the segment breakdown b/c this weeks ratings discuss before that got released was way to logical and and actual discussion on the wrestling (which was a nice change) and not the SUPER entertaing trainwreck it usually is. The breakdown has sparked a reurning of the completely entertaining awfulness that the Ratings thread should be.

As usual Starbuck and DesRow are spot on about the segment breakdown. I thought there was no way that the WWE could screw up Rock/Cena but low and behold they doing their best to screw it up and it appears that they may actually be screwing it up.

was that the one where Cena AA'd the Rock?

If it was that was fantastic TV I have to admit and it was just a shame that it was that crappy tag match at SS and not Rock vs Cena as that was perfect timing for it and now we are stuck with the current mess
