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

HHH/Lesnar has to be at Summerslam. Fuck WWE if it isn't lol. Seriously. This thing is off to a really good start. I just sincerely hope that they don't fuck it the fuck up as usual. At this rate you could practically physically put money into Vince McMahon's hands and he'll let it all slip through his fingers. Besides, after Lesnar/Cena and Lesnar/HHH, Lesnar/Orton would be...underwhelming. In fact, Lesnar/anybody bar Taker/Rock would be underwhelming tbh.

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

Agreed, Starbuck. Orton/Lesnar is a letdown following Lesnar/Cena and Lesnar/Triple H.

WWE creative can't book beyond week-to-week and every promising angle ends up disappointing because Vince is a lunatic who's forgotten how to helm compelling angles for more than two months at the maximum. Which coincides with The Road to Wrestlemania being two months and leading to the one event Vince/WWE actually gives a damn about all year long, ha.

True story.

They really can't book long term. You heard before the show that there had been 3 re-writes before the show. Crazy.

Simply can't book like that.

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

Starbuck and DesRow are correct here. I also has this fear that HHH/Lesnar is going to be your No Way Out ME as well. And I also agree that Lesnar/Orton after Lesnar/Cena and Lesnar/HHH would be very underwhelming at Summerslam. Hope I am wrong and the WWE is actually going to book the Lesnar/HHH thing long-term, and I do hold some hope of that with Brock "quitting" this past Raw. Plus, as bad as HHH's "broken" arm is made out to be No Way Out would be a quick healing time, even in the WWE world. I could see them maybe having Orton/Lesnar at NWO and then HHH/Lesnar at Summerslam as well.

Or the WWE has completely trolled us and Lesnar's contract was really only for one month and he was only back to put over Cena and "quit"

As for this week's ratings #s pretty much what I expected. As big of fan of Punk as I am personally, there is no way anyone should've expected a Punk/Tensai advertised ME to keep people watching.

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

Lesnar/HHH is obviously bigger and has the potential to draw more but they gave away Brock/Cena on the first match and that was probably the biggest money match they had. Still, I can't see HHH working random PPVs, add to that the arm injury that even with WWE's logic, I don't know how you can break this angle so quickly. Lesnar/HHH is a lock for Summerslam, Lesnar/Orton is probably happening at SVS or the Rumble and with the right build up, they can do great business with that match.

WWE are booking week to week for years now, people know it and still pretending to think about long term storylines like it's even a possibility and everything WWE do is a "master plan".

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

What if Lesnar goes over HHH? Then they build Orton as that guy who can be the only one to tame him, but he fails as well? I don't see what good HHH going over would do.

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

If Punk is a big star like people say, then people will tune in to see his match. Doesn't matter who it's against.

Punk is supposed to be the draw, then people will tune no matter what.

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

I'll defy all logic here and say that HHH/Lesnar is still on for Summerslam. I mean, it really shouldn't be that hard since both of them are off TV. How fucking hard can it be to keep 2 guys off TV for a month and start the proper build there? It should be easy as pie but of course that's never the case with WWE anymore. I'd rather wait and get the match built properly at Summerslam than have it rushed at NWO or even worse, bumrushed at OTL.

The very sad thing is would any of us really be that shocked if they did end up having the match at OTL?
