Guys, and girls, I have to fess up.

The ratings are possibly bad because selfish bastards like me watch Raw, Smackdown and PPVs a day after on Dailymotion and/or Youtube. I couldn't give less of a shit about their ratings. I couldn't give a flying monkey's shag if you are enjoying the shows. I only have enough fucks to give for me, and whether or not I enjoy the shows.

I'm interested in whether or not this wrestler or that wrestler is responsible for the degradation of the DDT maneuver sine Jake's deadly invention, but I'm completely out of fucks for Punk's ratings.

I enjoy the manky cunt, so I'm going to continue enjoying him and also enjoy my life seeming as I am the sperm that won, thus shall I celebrate every single fucking day.

That's right. I'm the sperm that won. So are you. Well done.

Fuck ratings.

85% is even more reason why guys shouldn't be blamed!

Main eventers aren't on tv for 85% of a show yet still get blamed for ratings!

Nope, ratings are down because overall popularity of WWE is down.

Are you telling me that you think WWE is as popular as it were in the attitude era? Thats idiotic.

Buyrates and ratings are down because popularity of wrestling has been down since 2006.

WWE still earns alot of money in terms of multimedia and merchandising.

But what they have earned of the wrestling product itself has gone down since 2006.

So yeah, WWE still earns money in other stuff, but pro wrestling itself is unpopular today.

You can easily see popularity of pro wrestling has gone down by looking at todays society. You dont need a master grade in science to see that.

Ratings may not matter to some guys, but buyrates does. And buyrates shows that interest of wrestling in recent years has gone down.

Fact is pro wrestling is unpopular in todays society either you guys like it or not.

You're probably very young, because clearly you have no idea what you're talking about.

The WWE is more popular worldwide today then it was 10 years ago. They have a publicly shared IPO and their stock is decent. They've expanded beyond the realm of "professional wrestling" and into a successful conglomerate beyond being the monopoly of Sports Entertainment.

You don't understand the semantics and logistics, beyond just ratings, earning sheets, annual merchandise sales vs. demo's in various countries, marketing in demo's that 10 years ago weren't even plausible, endeavors outside the ring for the wrestlers, partnerships with YouTube and other web based networking outlets, etc. The company, per it's annual statements, is netting more revenue now then in previous decades.

Do a little research before you make incorrect statements.

Incorrect statements, wtf. Yes, i meant that WWE as a company earns more, but the wrestling product itself has been more unpopular than it were for example 12 years ago?

Is that incorrect you idiot?

Yes, the company earns more than before. But as i said it's because of merchandising and multimedia interest in the wrestling product itself has been going down.


It hasnt gone beyond the real of proffesional wrestling, it has just found other ways to earn money now that professional wrestling is unpopular.

The wrestling product itself is important. Imagine if they could make new boom era + to earn money they do today.

The money they would earn would be alot more than they would today.

But the wrestling product itself is unpopular because of societys opinion on pro wrestling, + poor product and + they havent found guys that can draw llke Hogan and Rock.

As long as there is money to make and imporvement to make the wrestling product is important even though they ear n money with other stuff these days. Fact is they could earn alot more with the wrestling product if they would make improvements on it that would make more interest on it.

I love bryan and Punk fans.

Haven't realised that Vince is grudgingly accepting them and does infact blame them for bad ratings.

Get ready for the influx of bodybuilders.

I was listening to a Cena interview with the Observer from 2001 last night. On the interview Dave said Heat had done a 2.4 that week and Live Wire did a 1.4

Dave on squash matches ratings:
Quote:
Q: Dave/Bryan,

Just curious how the ratings have been for Ryback matches have been. I guess the same would apply for Clay and Sandow, basically the guys being brought in the way people used to brought in, ie essentially squash matches.

If the ratings aren’t noticeably dipping for these segments, do you think there’s a chance that WWE might slowly morph back into having more squash matches on RAW and SD, which would help protect people and maybe make some new stars?

DM: I don't get quarter hours for Smackdown. As far as Raw goes, it varies. Ryback's squash on 6/11 did fine, but on 6/4 it lost viewers. Sin Cara squashes on 6/4 did well but on 6/11 it didn't do well. Vader's squash on 6/11 did really well. It comes down to the person. If the guy was over, he'd gain viewers for a squash. If he's so-so over, then the results would be so-so. When Bill Goldberg was in WCW, his squashes would, on average, see ratings jump 0.4 every time he was out there which is a huge deal, and that's with another competitive show on at the same time.
