Or maybe people thought they'd just be seeing another HHH-Lesnar recap.

WWE did do a good job with spacing everything out. It was basically a main event match per hour(Punk-Mysterio in first hour, Orton-Big Show in 2nd hour, Cena-Bryan in 3rd hour)

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

Hour 1 holding onto 4 million viewers by a couple of fingernails.

WWE's going to have to deliver some goods at Summerslam to recapture even a fraction of the hoopla that the 1,000th Raw episode garnered. Until then, they're back on autopilot. The only match scheduled for Summerslam that feels like an attraction--partly because everything else has been played-out by now (if they could subtract Big Show from Cena/Punk in the future, that would help)--is Lesnar/Triple H and the storyline has little in the way of genuine momentum. It's like they're just filling the episodes out. Next week Lesnar will attack Shawn, cut to Triple H's angry face, Trips/Brock storyline finished aside from the fight they're going to have at Summerslam, of course. Next week, Cena will stand tall over a fallen Punk and a fallen Show. Del Rio will probably "injure" Sheamus. One more PTP/Air Truth segment. Probably a Jericho/Ziggler promo. Bryan wondering, along with the entire audience, what on earth he's doing facing Kane at Summerslam. That's about it.

Its going to be a rough fall this year against the NFL, they did face the Olympics so it's a good excuse, they are lucky the USA basketball team wasnt on at raw.

I dont think that first hour will ever draw

I don't think there's really anything WWE can do to get hour 1 to be better ratings.

They even advertised DX for Raw1000(and rumors about Road Dogg,X-Pac being there too), and the ratings for that, was lower than most other parts of the show.

WWE should have went with Bryan (C) vs Cena and Punk vs Heel Orton at Summerslam instead of Show vs Punk vs Cena. It might not garner better ratings but let's face it...with RAW going to 3 hours ratings were gonna drop anyway. At least we would be watching something new and exciting instead of re-hashing the past.

Agreeing with that. Punk losing to Bryan by AJ as the ref would have not taken away his credibility, and it would keep him face(did not want a heel turn at all). Although I am enjoying Bryans current position, he could be higher up the card. Im only expecting Punk to actually get interesting post SummerSlam.

As for the first hour ratings, they will always struggle in my opinion. Other two hours, meh, surprised hour 3 had less than hour 2.



Thanks Punk

You fail on understanding ratings. You fail at realising the drop in the 3rd hour and you also failed on realising that John Cena was in the first segment.
