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

Angle is hit or miss for me. When he isn't trying to do 9 finishers, 14 minutes of ankle locks and 77 german suplexes, he's pretty good. But most of his work the last 7 years or so has been ridiculous. Very little psychology in his wrestling.

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

Interesting rating, but not all that surprising. It was a terribly disjointed show.

Going from an intense Brock/Cena scrap to comedy jobbers, three stooges and two irrelevant squash matches just killed all momentum.

Then things picked up for the Punk/Jericho segment (which wasn't that good), and right after that we've got another squash (with the guy that no one has ever cared about and the guy that WWE killed), another three stooges bit, and a main event involving DAVID OTUNGA.

I don't blame anyone for tuning out.

Angle has just kept the same match formula he had used since 02.

Angle's "formula" is gold, doesn't need to change. Best of all time with Benoit behind him.

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

Angle's great to me, but I'd never call him the best wrestler ever in WWE. The spot monkey arguments I've seen are valid.

I'm watching you...

Eddie, Benoit and Angle all copied from each other anyway. They all had similar chain wrestling.

Now you lost me there. Either you lost your PPV feed or your DVD player broke down just before the Brock - Angle match. Angle was working on Brock's injured ribs for about a fourth of the match.

I'm sure this "Kurt Angle is a spot monkey" fad was actually started by those stupid anorexic Punk marks when Punk and Angle had that twitter war last year.

Angle is 20 times the wrestler Punk is and will always be. And unlike Punk, Angle was never carried by Cena to his greatest match ever.

Angle was great no doubt about that but Benoit and Eddie were just better.

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

Can you imagine if any "proper" TV show was as wildly uneven as this week's Raw? "In this episode of Game of Thrones, we start with Robb Stark having a brutal swordfight with some Lannister soldiers. Then we immediately cut to a Dothraki being shit on by a horse with comedy squeals cut in, and then Jon Snow has to find the social grace to do a dance routine with a Wildling. Then cut back to the City Watch chopping babies' heads off." Of course they're fucking haemorrhaging viewers.

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

I wonder how much better and structured Raw would be if WWE actually operated under a system similar to most other TV shows. Imagine if they had storylines planned out months in advance? Imagine if they actually carried them out, building story arcs and drawing viewers in every week? Imagine they had real characters to work with? HOLY FUCK JESUS!! That would be amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pity it will never happen lol.

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

I'd be happy if they'd just settle on a tone. Storylines are a lot of effort, but fuck, at least decide if you're smashmouth or slapstick, y'know?
