Come on now. Its been proven time and time again that doesn't draw, you know better than this. Look past your undying hatred for Orton and past your undying love for Punk and realize that one man just doesn't draw like the good 'ole days.

Not even that, people are leaving before the Punk matches on house shows lol. Orton in the past did great house show business, he's not number 8 of the decade worldwide for no reason. SD is just a dead brand with no name value to attract your casual TV viewer.

Cena and Orton are still the only real attractions.

I'm a mark but I'm not going to inflate Orton's drawing ability. He's had one truly standout year in 2009 but I think that's about it. When he was absolutely white hot in mid 2010, business didn't move anywhere iirc. If it had I think they would have been prepared to push him ahead of Cena tbh. But it didn't happen. I don't know about how well he's done in other time periods though tbh. You're the number guy so I guess I'll have to take your word for it lol. Agreed on SD though. Save for moving Cena there and bringing back HHH or Taker or something, nothing will be able to bump the SD numbers. Hell, they were here in my town not too long ago and I didn't even bother going it's that bad.

I agree with SD being bad. People wanna blame Orton but when a taped show always has underwhelming spoilers, it's not surprising that the ratings are so down and the attendance is low when they make the same matches every week or switch around a few names. (Ted DiBiase and Hunico probably had matches for over a month in SD until Ted got injured) And besides that, Orton doesn't do shit on the show apart from turn up in a one minute backstage promo, some match that often results in DQ or in one minute brawls with whoever he's feuding with for whatever dumb reason.

I'm a huge Orton fan and even I have had no problem with missing most of the shows in the last few months. This week's spoilers sound more exciting but that's probably because I've been so disappointed in the awful Raw they had this week so anything is a step up.

of course Orton is not a game-changer, only a few were in wrestling history, but he's a main attraction, just like Cena is, they mostly can't increase the market significantly, but the people who are at the show, are there because of them, or at least at the top of the list of "who are you looking forward to see the most?". Orton is the guy who since mid 2004, main evented 90% of the house shows he was on even when the roster was full with star power, RAW or SD. With Flair and HHH, Angle, Taker, Jeff Hardy, Batista and Eddie, Rey, Jericho, Cena etc, there's a reason for that. He had plenty of successful house show programs over the years. This is not a default choice. In terms of overall star power, the peak so far was probably 2009.

I'll guess it'll be something like this

9:00-9:25 Cena

10:00-10:10: Cena

10:45-11:05: Cena

A 2.72 rating.... http://...............com/articles/1...n-monday-night

Before people do that whole "it's the summer!" thing this is actually one of the worst ratings in history for the show and the lowest since september 2011. Before they do the whole "memorial day" thing it was 3.1 last year and 3.2 the year before.

So question is why has the show lost so many viewers?

No simple answer to that but one definate one is Punk cannot draw as champion. In his 7month+ reign the numbers have died. Look at his segmant numbers and your see most of them actually lose numbers. Sometimes quite a lot.

As I said on monday the company needs a big overhaul. The 3hr numbers are going to be brutal.

Wow, so this week's show had a 2.72 rating? Ouch. That's very very sad. I'm not surprised as I didn't enjoy the show and gave it a harsh review on the RAW Discussion Thread.
