Starbuck right again.

Tho, I thought they took the right direction with the Rock/Cena feud last night. Shame it's maybe to late.

They can still do a million buys. 4 million people in the USA watch each week and millions more around the world do too. They can still hit the 1 million mark.

I have already ordered the ppv. So there's 1 ppv buy for WWE already. lol.

I feel like the feud came off the rails a little last week. We had two pretty heated exchanges with the "wrist" promo and then the one after it which lead up to what amounted to a comedy segment (even if it was a pretty good comedy segment) in the Rock vs. Cena concert. It feels like that's something that should've taken place much earlier. Now it feels like it's been 2 weeks and the feud really hasn't moved forward at all.

I can see why WWE thought it would be a great idea, but it hasn't panned out.

I don't see why not. From a ratings standpoint thing haven't been up to par but they have nobody to blame but themselves for that. Mania 28 travel packages and general tickets sold out pretty damn fast. People wanted to see and still want to see the match. I have no doubt it will still do a big buyrate too. But something has happened along the line that has turned people off. Either that or all the initial hype surrounding Rock's return last year and his freshness has well and truly worn off at this stage. The simple fact is and I'll stand by this because I honestly believe it to be true, people don't want to see 2 guys legitimately trying to bury each other. That's not how wrestling works and it's never been how it works. Year on year they've lost a million or so viewers. I think that's a testament to that fact. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Most folks were expecting Rock vs. Cena. What we have got these past few weeks has been Dwayne vs. John. The former was pulling record numbers and had immense interest. The latter is struggling to break 5 million viewers every week. Take that for what you will.

Well I think it went forward to an extent last night.

Rock finally give his reasons for wanting to face Cena and reasons why he needs to beat Cena. He also built Cena up and put him right beside Hogan and Austin. Made him into a huge deal.

For weeks we've just had them try and tear down each other in crap shoot style promos.

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

theyve been the top show for the past couple weeks though. that's all that matters with those ratings


with buy rates theyll get 1-1.5m easily. it wont be that difficult especially with their marketing campaign

You're right about how fast it sold out and ultimately the buyrate is what matters but I don't think it's possible to hold the public's interest over a year's period given the circumstances.

As much as we want to pick the fued apart I do think they're doing the best they possibly can do. They only way they can build this match is thru promos and finishers. There's only so much you can do with that and we're now on their 10th promo and 5th in ring confrontation. No matter what they do it's going to get old.

As for losing viewers. Wrestling has been losing viewers for quite some time now. That's whole different subject and involves multiple factors such as MMA's increasing popularity, and the rise of competition on cable television. They got a spark last year from Rock's return. They had the opportunity to provide a spark this year too with Shaq but weren't bright enough to pull it off.

The brand is cold, this is why they're not drawing.

Cena/Rock don't gel.

Punk/Jericho not getting enough airtime.

Taker/HHH garnering minimal interest. We all know the streak won't end.

Predictable results, Punk, Cena and Taker all going to win. We could see it coming a mile away.

Unfortunately, this is exactly right. I am praying for at least one of the three to go the opposite but it will probably be Jericho winning which will be stupid. But like I said, if just one of the three matches goes in favor of the opposite I guess I can live with that.

IMO this is due to not promoting/advertising Rock' appearances enough. My brothers and friends don't even know that he's on the show till they ask me, whereas last year, when he returned they heard about it and watched a few shows after his return, hoping to see him. I haven't seen a commercial advertising Rock's appearance besides the Rock concert tbh.
