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

I find it funny that the same people who blame the mid cards for the lack of draw in today's wrestling are the same guys who state how terrible the Attitude era's mid card scene was.

This isn't about tag team, IC titles. The product just isn't enjoyable right now and unfortunately bringing in Rocky and Lesnar just draws them down to "x" wrestlers level. Although with Lesnar it's a little bit different than with the Rock. It just seems like he's crawling back to the WWE.

As Bill Parcells would say. You can't make chicken salad with chicken sh**.

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

Why can't people just stop talking bullshit in this pointless thread, and accept the fact that wrestling just isn't that popular nowadays. It really is as simple as that.

They can bring back as many old guys as they want. Put on as many combinations of matches between those guys as they want. It will not make a difference.

Wrestling needs a NEW crossover superstar. A new Hogan or Rock. Somebody new to capture the public's imagination and become a household name. Until then, the ratings are going fluctuate up and down, but without a doubt, will stay somewhere between 4.5 to 5.5 million people.

You only question is, is that guy in the WWE right now, or not?

Cena is crap.

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

UFC audience don't even watch their own TV shows just buy the PPV's so I doubt many of them were gonna cross over

Lesnar was never a big draw + he worked Smackdown so even the WWE audience he can attract back that wants to watch him is not that big

PPV should be interesting though. Might do about 300k

Following the return of Brock Lesnar, this past Monday's edition of WWE Raw scored a 3.1 cable rating. This is down from last week's 3.43 rating. The show did 4.29 million viewers, down from 5.01 million last week.

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

The lot of you are FUCKING IDIOTS.

Drop by .1 = WWE is coming to an end, Punk can't draw, 2.0s by summer, etc.

No, not really, no. Ratings fluctuate like this all the time. You can't begin to draw conclusions unless there is a continuous, downward trend. There will always be 4 mil viewers who will always watch the show unless WWE does something to seriously alienate it's viewers. It's not Punk, Lesnar, Cena, or anything, it's the product as a whole that's gotten GENERALLY lower ratings, but they aren't quite in the disaster area some of you think they are. The more stuff there is on TV, the more ratings percentages will go down across the board naturally anyway, which is why RAW can't get 6s or 7s anymore.

I won't pretend the WWE doesn't have it's own problems, but it pisses me off whenever you people sit here and try to make conclusions about ratings draws over the change of .1. Now, if the ratings continue to downslide...

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

I think Vince Russo was right in his interview last week with Wade Keller, something needs to fundamentally change and like he mentioned that doesn't mean going back to an attitude era type product. Although he didn't have the answer, and it seems neither do WWE right now - something does need to fundamentally change if they are to start attracting a respectable rating again.

"This is a lot better than lugging wrestlers around who farted in my car" - Jim Ross on starting his new podcast.

Raw on 4/11 did a 3.45 rating and 5.46 million viewers
Cena vs. Truth in the gauntlet finals with the post-match run-in gained 1,021,000 viewers, doing a 3.91 overrun.
