Jus' sayin'.

Once again the Rock promo does an incredibly underwhelming number and I really don't know why. It's as if nobody even cares about him. The Trips/Taker/HBK angle is clearly doing awesome. Great news.
Following segment only gained 58,000. Break it down anyway you want Punk Jericho is failing to draw too.

I think the storyline is being booked well I just think Jericho lost so much steam between January and the Battle Royal that nobody cares about this match either.

Triple H Undertaker was the one build that was actually done right and no surprise that it's actually drawing unlike Rock-Cena and Jericho Punk.

I don't think it's so much that Punk/Jericho is failing, but rather that no one on the roster, except for the Rock, is able to hold the interest of the hundred of thousands of people that only tune in to see HHH/Taker/HBK.

Hell in the Cell. Old school intensity. You have to love how it's being booked.

WWE should be taking note of this. Triple H Rock, Cena Taker at Mania next year.
True.

Yeah but the Jericho promo was what, three minutes? Again not the majority. That's what the difference is between the numbers we get and the numbers WWE get. They have minute to minute viewership totals. We often forget something very critical when it comes to viewership count, commercials. Every quarter gets one or two commercials except for the first and overrun, and sometimes the 10 spot. Who sticks around during commercials?

I'll agree with you that build is very important. Cena/Rock should be killing everything, but it's not. The program is absolute shit. Why should anybody care? All we've seen so far is corny virgin jokes, swear words and shitty promos. The Trips/Taker stuff is doing well because, well, the program is actually intriguing and entertaining. Hell, they only started something with Jericho/Punk this week. The WWE needs to get their shit together.

I think what separates Taker Triple H from the rest is intensity.

Jericho returns and for 6 weeks is trolling the audience looking like a bigger joke than Santino. His segments lost viewers every single week because no one wants you to waste their time.

The interest between him and Punk just isn't there because fans never could connect to Jericho. They have the feud on the right track now but it might be too little too late.

The promo fest between Rock Cena got tiresome by the end of last Mania, and that's all this feud has been. 2 guys looking to embarrass one another. It's just not how wrestling works. You need intensity. Really this feud should be just how far Cena's willing to go to win this match but God forbid WWE try to push any envelope with John Cena.

Anyways despite the poor build I still think the match itself will draw.

Not sure how anyone can convince themselves the WWE is doing fine in terms of ratings.

This is the road to WrestleMania, the time of year where they usually get ratings constantly decent ratings between 3.5 to 4.0. This year even with The Rock on the show they are struggling to get above 3.2.

Just wait until after WrestleMania, ratings will plummet.

It seems as though having Cena and Rock team up at Survivor Series managed to make Rock's status as a megastar whose visiting WWE necessitated dramatic increases in eyeballs to the product jump the shark. 500,000 gain for one of the most heavily advertised segments WWE's thrown at us in ages? Rather weak. Looking at the segment-by-segment breakdown, that means The Rock Concert didn't even come close to hitting the viewership total that Michaels/Undertaker/Triple H enjoyed at the top of Hour 2.

Triple H/Undertaker/Michaels is blowing everything else away in build-up.

It's sad that they still haven't been able to average five million viewers for an entire Raw during this year's Road to Wrestlemania season. 5.6 million was the new sweet spot for the last couple of years for the average viewership of Raw throughout the entire Road to Wrestlemania, and now five million seems like Mount Olympus. With The Rock vs. John Cena!

I said it last week and I'll say it again. You can't have a one-way feud when it's supposed to be the biggest match in history or whatever they're trying to hype this as. Why can't they simply revisit what angered Rock in the first place? His motivation for this match is completely blurred and almost nonexistent at this point. They have to get their shit together with this damned angle in the last two weeks, but I know those words make up the sound of a broken record.

I hope they have Punk kick off Raw next week with one of the most emotional promos he's ever cut. It's the perfect venue, Philadelphia, the home of ROH. It could be a lightly-WWEified version of his Raven promo in 2003 concerning his father, directed at Jericho. Punk/Jericho did very well in the opening segment a couple of weeks ago, and if they let Punk deliver the goods with a hot Philly crowd to kick off the show, it could perform exceptionally here and bring this feud home.

TBF I dont blame Rock, Cena, Punk or Jericho. I blame WWE. Nobody wants to watch big names, people want to watch storylines, build and some intensity.. And taker/HHH/HBK is proving that each week.

Shame on WWE for wasting Rock/Cena feud which could have been huge.

But I have a feeling the last 2 weeks of Raw will be more than intense and action packed, i really hope it is not just for 1 feud.. but all of them.

It looks like that Taker/HHH is the biggest match not Rock/Cena and the sad thing is that if wrestlemania hit 1 million buys Rock/Cena will get the full credit for it.
