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

The ratings have been terrible for this RTWM, no two ways about it. I know buyrates and ratings aren't always correlated but when you have more than one million less viewers than you had the year before it doesn't look good for this year's number. I honestly think they will do less than a million buys globablly, the interest in the product just isn't there it seems


IT WAS JUST BANTER

Hour 2 - 4.448m
Weird how 2010 had better ratings WrestleMania season then 2009...And WOW, were those actually the numbers a year ago? That's really crazy.

Seriously, if that thing up there isn't a wake up call for Vince, I don't know what would be. Seriously, isn't this the worst viewership since the 90's?

Miz as a Champion = ratings.

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

I think the ratings would of been way up if they held off announcing the Cena/Rock match for the year. Maybe announcing it with 6 weeks to go, that would of been a ratings spike.

But they have earned a ton of money off announcing it a year out, with record breaking ticket sales and a likely 1 million buys. So, they haven't lost.

They are banking on the youtube friday thing and the week long special.
No wonder they kept saying they were gonna hit 1.3million for this mania... Vince got some tricks up his sleeve

Don't forget UFC gets shit ratings and they get huge buys
WCW would get good ratings and do horrible buyrates

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

Interesting numbers year by year. Last year of course had Rock when he was still red hot off his return, so the fact the second hour drew over 6 million shouldn't be surprising (also it was the Taker/HHH/HBK segment on that show that was great as well). I'm sure the 2010 show would've been a bit better without Impact being there, but this year there really is no excuse. I suppose the absence of Taker, HHH, and HBK hurt the overall rating a bit, but they didn't get anywhere near 5 million in either quarter. Though the Rock/Cena special doing well is a good sign, and perhaps they did over 5 million at the end, the overall number is definitely way too low for the final Raw before WM.

I'm watching you...

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

Remember, The Rock just came back plus the first Cena/Rock interaction took place as well. It was a big buzz.

12 months later, I literally don't give a shit about this feud like others have pointed out so I don't blame people seeing this as a turnoff.

That was before WWE Creative had a chance to kill the angle.

WWE writers can suck the heat out of any angle.

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

like ive been saying for weeks ...this comes down the fact that wwe is going back to the older stars that fans like myself are sick of ...fans want newer faces at the top in main event matches and main event feuds ...not rock/cena which was basically last year wm main event anyway as miz was just a sideshow and tripleh /undertaker for the 3rd time at wrestlemania ....only 1 new star is in 3 of the top matches at wrestlemania

and you combine that with just a terrible terrible build for wrestlemania and this is the ratings you end up with

THANK YOU EDGE !!!! MY FAVORITE WRESTLER OF ALL TIME AND AN EDGEHEAD 4 LIFE !!!!!

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

Really shitty numbers, but I still don't agree with people who are saying the numbers are going to be even worse after Mania. I think they'll be practically the same. A couple of months ago when Rock, Michaels, Haitch and Undertaker were nowhere to be seen, and closing shows with Punk and Johnny Ace, they were doing just as good and sometimes even better numbers than the go home show for Wreslte fucking Mania. I think they'll be fine after 'Mania. It's just weird how badly Rock/Cena is drawing.






best.
