Quality-wise. I have the last few years of WcW and I'd honestly watch that over what the WWE has become. Is this what it means to be number one...spiraling down embarrassingly like this? WcW was number one for awhile too.

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

People thinking these numbers are terrible are idiots, Raw is still the highest rated cable show on most monday nights. TV ratings are that low in general now, people DVR or watch it streaming/youtube these days so they don't get the actual amount of viewers. Raw was the second highest Cable show this past monday, the only thing that did better were the NBA playoffs.

Raw continues to bring in the high ratings for USA, so they don't need to worry. However, pro wrestling has been garbage since 2002, so I can't defend the quality of the program.

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

This is what happends when you revolve your show around fucking John Larinatis, people get bored by him and they tune out. Simple explanation why this weeks rating is low.

And it truly shows how standards have fallen when the majority of this forum marks for this awful and useless tv personality. The man cant even deliver a senteance without fucking up or stumbling, and people still type shit like "LOL BIG JOHNNY LOL, MR EXCITEMENT LOL". It just fucking shows that the IWC lives up to its steorotype, that they will mark for the heels no matter how untalented they are just.... cause.

True that, Laurinaitis sucks but he's not the only reason, there is no proper build for any feuds whatsoever, you can miss multiple episodes of Raw and you won't miss anything.
Bottom line is, the WWE is back to 2007 level bad.

When your main event of the evening is a Big Johnny promo , what do you expect.

Totally agreed. Never really understood the johny ace bandwagon... There is nothing impressive or entertaining about the guy.

Laurinaitis and Bischoff comparisons/competition poll over here was a joke!

Laurintis is probably the most unintentional funny act ever. People starting "marking" for him because he's funny. The raspy voice, the dumb shit he says, the dead pan delivery, it just works. At Wrestlemania Johnny was wearing a white suit, he looked like someone's pastor at a tent revival, its silly shit. "Mr. Excitement" is an oxymoron because he's boring as shit but HE thinks he's exciting. Shit he even calls himself "Big Johnny"! I may be silly but that's funny to me.

However...Johnny has been overexposed the last few weeks and taking himself too seriously. He went from delusional, pencil pushing, yes-man to an overbearing, sensitive, tyrant. The whole atmosphere of the show now revolves around Johnny and that shouldn't be the case. I don't think anyone intended to push WWE to have L's on TV as much as he was the last two to three weeks.

I personally believe this has more to do with Brock Lesnar returning than with the IWC marking for Laurinaitis.
