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

Personally I would kill for some direction and consistency. It legit amazes me that they don't seem to be able to say to themselves, right, we have a PPV at the end of the month. We have 6/7 spots to fill on that card. We have 2 major championships and a handful of minor championships to work around too. For match A, these are the characters and this is the story we want to tell. We have 4/5 weeks to tell this story. On week 1 blah blah happens. On week 2 blah blah happens etc etc until we hit the PPV. At the PPV, this is what we want to happen and this is what we want to happen afterward. Then repeat the cycle. It shouldn't be that fucking hard but clearly it is lol.

LOL at WWE marks calling Kurt Angle a spot monkey. Kurt is the best in the world all around. The dude could talk/sell/work/and market himself into a nice package like no one else seen before him imo. Kurt Angle had it all

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

WWE doenst know what it wants to be at the moment. They dont know if they want reality based characters and stroylines which are directed at a more mature audience (Brock V Cena, Punk V Jericho) or they want to be sqeaky clean, harmless family fun full of zany characters and segments (Santino and Brodus dancing, The Three Stooges) and judging by the audience reaction on monday, I think the audience want the former.

Right. I dont know it seems like its really hard for them to do that. And the way in which order they show segments is horrible too. First we have some intense shit with Brock and Cena which was really fucking intense and then they switch to Santino searching for the stooges i mean really?

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

The thing that's more funnier is that no one is going down with injuries at the moment. If this was early 2007 where the roster was in dire straits (SmackDown had a lot of people on the shelf) I would understand, but fact is that the majority of their main roster has not got injured. Only Del Rio, Henry and Barrett are the three people that had injures, one of them 3 worked through their injury so in reality there is no excuse.

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

Last week RAW was a show filled with fresh characters and fresh feuds WWE advances at the start of the show very well Brock Vs Cena next is the US title contention which at the moment has four faces who are all great but what do we get a tag team match Clay and Santino vs Swagger Ziggler now here you have too hugely over faces who can cut great promos if they were allowed and Swagger and Ziggler still have their own infighting storyline going on does WWE do anything intresting with the dymanic they setup last week? NO. Eve got some advancement but she needs a team to her bidding, A wild Miz appears, Del Rio buries the actually over Ryder who should be feuding for the US title, Punk Jericho was good but its the same thing as last week and the storyline fell flat when it got hot shotted into a personal feud instead of it being about the match they could have built it up to the personal side after Mania, Rhodes shouldn't have lost the IC title and should't be getting owned by Big Show instead Rhodes should have continued to show that fire he has attacking Big Show and actually beating him down showing he is a threat but of course its proven take someones momentium away and they will be just fine.

You'd think hiring TV writers would help rather than hinder process, too. Instead, it's been the exact opposite.

That's what makes a lot of this thread's discussion so infuriatingly pointless. Punk's a draw, Punk's not a draw, Brock's a draw, no he's not, Rocky, Cena, whoever. They're all saddled with the exact same baggage of trying to captain a rudderless ship.

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

Raw is essentially a shit sandwich, the bread (opening and closing segments) is usually good but everything else leaves a bad taste in your mouth. They need to get interesting mid card characters and angles that give people a reason to keep watching between the good stuff


IT WAS JUST BANTER

I was watching old WWF ppv dvds from 00-01 last night. I couldn't believe when I seen the mid-card matches getting promos for their matches. I just forgot they used to actually have stories for these mid-carders.
