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

Somebody, somewhere, needs to make a Mark Wars poster for this forum with John Cena as Luke Skywalker, CM Punk as Han Solo, Randy Orton as Boba Fett (with his eyes squinting), The Rock as Lando Calrissian, Stephanie McMahon as Princess Leia, The Undertaker as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Daniel Bryan as Yoda and Triple H as no one less than Darth Vader... With Vince as the Evil Emperor...

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

Punk does poorly in the overrun.

If it was a promo/segment, then that would be shocking and bad. Whether with a proven draw or being the biggest draw himself of a promo segment, he's most of the time done well.

Since it's a match though... it's bad that Punk still can't draw people into his matches, but people shouldn't act like this is some huge thing that's never happened before. And hey, as pointed out it's not the first time an Overrun lost viewers. HHH/Jericho and HHH VS. JEFF HARDY (with Cena at ringside apparently) lost viewers. HHH and Cena are proven draws and Jeff at the time was pretty fucking huge and a draw in his own right, and they still lost viewers in the overrun.

Simply put, shit happens.

I'm watching you...

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

You can go back to find some meaningless fluke number from 4 years ago, just like you can go to 99-00 and bring the 6.0s Albert was doing back then thanks to the show average. A lot of people here need to realize that the majority of the paying fanbase don't see their favorites as real stars and aren't going to order a PPV for them or watch the show. It's not a brain surgery. The only reason people are bringing this up is because of the delusional marks here who are believing that their cult high school gym heroes are bigger than they actually are, you just need to bring them back to reality, that's it. Nothing personal.

Orton in 2009 did the biggest quarters of the year before HHH even came to RAW for their storyline, I think I already showed it in this thread somewhere, the biggest quarters were a Shane match with the punt angle after the match, the Vince segment before the Rumble PPV and the Orton/HHH/Legacy backstage brawl to the parking lot. I think Floyd did a huge number in August that year and you can't count the Trump RAW with no commercials, but even if you want, the peak of that show was for Orton/HHH in a LMS match which did monster number. Besides, Orton did well the entire year, from Cena to Legacy matches.

WWE need to bring back Lesnar as fast as they can even if it means paying him extras because the current state of the show is going to drive fans away in a way that they're not coming back even in August for Lesnar/Heyman/HHH.

Focusing on the positive. The show started off strong with a 3.5 rating.

I think there's interest in Lauranitis and the storyline of him wanting to create a new face for the WWE.

Since it can't be Brock because of his limited appearances they should try to maneuver someone else into that spot.

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

Does it really affect people's views on a wrestler if the ratings aren't up when he's on TV? Like, really?
