A complete overhaul of the format, appearance, presenters etc.

Get rid of 'Nice guy' Jerry Lawler, he offers nothing. Hire Roddy Piper, Jesse V, Paul E or Kevin Nash to be color commentator.

Fire Cole and replace him with some new pbp guy.

Change the RAW logo, the set, the look of the ring etc. Lame white ropes are lame.

Give guys more variety in terms of how they are dressed. Too many guys just come out with their merch shirt on and short tights, it looks ridiculous.

Give the more competent guys freedom to say what they want. (CM Punk especially)

Get rid of Johnny Ace, the guy is so mediocre it's painful. This is meant to be the authority figure on par with Vince?

Book more matches between lower/mid card guys and main eventers so the lower guys get a chance to learn more and develop.

Faces with edge. No one can relate to a perfect squeaky clean angel.

Also, better booking.

Atleast it was 2.94 somewhat decent.

RAW after TLC, the one headlined by Punk/Bryan/Ryder tag match + overrun did a 2.67 rating (Lowest since 1997).

Every match/feud need story lines, and good ones not bullshit half assed crap with Promo A, Promo B. They are starting to head in the right direction but it needs more. I don't care about PG/Not PG but stories need to be captivating and crazy, superstars need to be larger then life, if you don't cut it you're out no second chances no bullshit.

Heels need to be more ruthless. More backstage shit. Main focus always on the WWE Champ, I don't give a fuck if it's Cena vs Rock or Austin vs Punk or w/e, The title match should always go on last at every PPV ESPECIALLY Wrestlemania. Build up the midcard, build up the tag division, build up the diva's division.

Even the lower card, when people like Hunico/Dibiase are "feuding" If you can even call it that, there should be a story, e.g. Dibiase buys a brand new bike, Hunico steals it and him and Camacho ride out with their bike and Ted's. Ted gets revenge next episode by smashing up Hunico's bike, Next episode Hunico/Camacho gang up on Ted backstage, then someone IDK Curt Hawkins chases them off, then you have a tag match/feud and it's away from the titles, after that you can put them all in a fatal four way tag match with the two teams feuding over the tag titles, be it ladder/regular whatever thus building the lower card/mid card/tag division etc. Not the most creative thing I could have come up with but you see what I'm saying, It's not that hard to attempt to make stories for everyone and I'm just a moron in his underwear at a keyboard that thought of something on the fly and typed, they have sought after and paid writers that can't do their fucking job.

To be honest I have been enjoying the product more lately and have been for a good while but these are things I would get on top of if I was in charge. Everything should be fun not just 1 or 2 segments.

Punk's the only one who can pull off diabolical numbers like that.

How can you even call that decent? Even Miz stayed afloat 3.0 in his closing segments when he was the champ.

If Lord Tensai was in the main event you have your answer on viewer loss.

Vince McMahon hiring someone like Chris Kreski again. Someone with actual vision, patience, intelligence and originality, to overhead creative. And Vince McMahon not being such a fucking mental case who micromanages everything and makes so much of the product so much more sterile and lackluster than it should be.

That would necessarily include

Actual storylines for the midcard
Actual semblance of a midcard
Progression of character arcs from one week to the next, one month to the next, etceteras
Consequences
Patient pushes, not the bumrushed crap we've endured...
Intricate plotting of storylines... treat us like we have brains
Putting a dramatically higher emphasis on the quality of the product over backstage politics
Treating everyone like they matter, obviously to varying degrees, but nevertheless

Etceteras, etceteras.

- As noted before, the May 7th WWE RAW Supershow from Greensboro, North Carolina scored a 3.01 cable rating with 4.30 million viewers. The first quarter-rating was a 3.50 but things fell apart from there.
In the segment breakdown, Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes lost 378,000 viewers and Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler lost 465,000 more viewers. Kelly Kelly and Layla vs. Maxine and Natalya lost another 207,000 viewers. Sheamus and Randy Orton vs. Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio at the top of the hour gained 191,000 viewers, which is weak for that timeslot - doing a 2.89 quarter-rating.

The Miz vs. Brodus Clay gained 55,000 viewers in what is usually a losing segment. Paul Heyman's return gained 123,000 viewers. CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan and Lord Tensai in the overrun actually lost viewers - 105,000 for a 2.94 rating. It's almost impossible to lose viewers in the overrun because you've got people tuning into the USA Network for their next show.


Punk continues to break records as the most irrelevant WWE champion of all time. Another almost 14 years low. Punk is horrendous on his own but you when add another indy guy from his type, the audience just can't handle it, been proven. They got only 7 minutes overrun so there's no way it's the viewers of the next show which means that the RAW/wrestling fanbase didn't want to see this and who can blame them? catastrophic.

Great to see the awesome Heyman promo gained on this slot.

Next week they're probably bringing HHH to try to save the show, hopefully Paul E will be there and Cena is probably back. I can't believe I'm saying it, but just put the belt on Cena, what Punk did to the prestige of the title in his run is almost irreversible at this point.
