If I can be serious for a minute, the real reason the ME lost viewers is cause fans were legit pissed that they weren't able to see DB epic entrance so they changed the channel in protest.

what does this change exactly? The Rock is still the biggest star in wrestling, Cena is still the top guy of this generation, Triple H is still the heir to the throne and CM Punk is still the best option to push.

Seriously WWE is in dire need of stars right now, they are not going to de-push him just because of a few low rated segments. He might lose the championship but would still remain in the main event scene for the foreseeable future.

Vince Mcmahon didnt have his two absolute Top stars, Cena and HHH, look weak against Punk at PPVs for nothing. Cena lost twice and HHH was only able to beat punk after 3 run-ins from Miz,truth,Nash and two pedigrees, not to mention all the shoots on Stephanie, HHH's wife and Vince's daughter. Its pretty obvious they have decided to push the guy & keep him in the main event scene as a top star.

All this bitching is pointless, waste of time. Stop doing it.
Exactly. This is why this thread is awful (in addition to about a hundred other reasons). There's a ton of "DEPUSH [Insert wrestler I don't like who lost viewers]!" going on, but the logical question is then "Ok, and then push who?" No one ever addresses this. WWE needs new stars. If you acknowledge this, then you have to put faces not named Cena or Orton in the main event. So who's that gonna be if not Punk? Who is the better option on RAW? Where is this new babyface who is a proven draw that WWE is apparently not pushing?

The answer is there isn't one. Maybe Punk's reign has not been great, but it doesn't change the fact that he's pretty much the only option they have. But people continue to flail around this thread as if the next Stone Cold is just waiting to be pushed if only we could get that pesky CM Punk out of the way.

Face it: ratings will never be in the 15s or the 8s again. Its a safe bet to say its the product but to say its only the product is a lie. Its not one man or one woman, its not about who is the champion or who is the challenger its simply about the change in viewing habits over the last decade. People have new technology and new viewing habits its that simple.

Vince can give away a million dollars, have any celebrity he wants on TV and it won't change anything. Nobody is really moving the needle that much, this is an antiquated idea of how to judge the product or how to judge a wrestler...period.

It causes the same arguments week after week, "[insert here] IS NOT A DRAW!!!!111 WWE WUZ BETTA DURIN THE ATTIUDE ERA!!11 LOLZ" and its old and repetitive. The mods did the right idea putting this in one thread but the TV ratings argument needs to be put to bed altogether.

Thoughts of a Punk mark:

Orton vs. Tensai lost 5 billion viewers in the overrun. OMGZ, ORTAN CNT DRAW DURRR

Punk vs. Tensai lost 5 billion viewers in the overrun. OMGZ DAT TENSAI MADE PUNK NOT DRAW DURRR

A bad segment is a bad segment. At least be consistent in your hating lol. Bad breakdown, bad show, why is anybody surprised? Punk doing bad in his matches is nothing new. It's been happening for how long now? Why has it been happening? Same reason practically every match loses viewers on Raw, there's absolutely no purpose behind having them, that's why. Meh. I don't really see what there is to discuss about this weeks numbers tbh. We all knew they were going to be shit and they are lol. But please, Punk haters keep hating, Punk marks keep defending and around around we go.

Don't worry, you can blame him next week when the overall number is still shit and it's decided that he is no longer a draw either lol.

Holy shit, this is a new sort of decrease, WWE needs to convince Brock to be more than a part time member. People tuned into the show initially to see if he's there and what he's going to do with HHH with a strong 3.5...and well when it was revealed he wasn't almost every single segment bar three lost viewers, and one of them was with Heyman representing him and another one barely made a spike (the one involving Miz spiked 55k). And people said Lesnar doesn't draw LOL. Also Cena not beeing there, while making sense storyline wise must have also turned viewers away.

Excellent post. Most Punk marks are pretty funny. They raid Orton threads with a bunch of crap about how he sucks and how he can't draw then when Punk loses viewers, it's everyone's fault except Punk. Either that or they'll ignore it and say "just enjoy the show". Note that this isn't aimed at ALL Punk fans, but a lot of them lurking around here. I see them in Orton related threads all the time slamming his alleged lack of drawing ability even though they idolize a guy who has not been able to draw a damn thing in terms of ratings.

Orton gets 4.1 ratings in 2009 in his feud with HHH but it's all due to HHH and Vince even though Orton tops Cena's merchandise sells too, but in 2011 and 2012, CM Punk gets 2.94 the week before Money in the Bank and it's probably somebody else's fault or the best one, "just ignore it and enjoy the damn show!!!!!!".

And on the topic of June 2008 having weak ratings, I think a lot of fans were pissed about the PG rating which was introduced in either 2/6 or 9/6, so they chose to boycott the show.
