Too bad Tebow will be busy until after the Superbowl.

Hate the ratings fad but damn at Jericho being apart of segments losing viewers for the second week.

Raw is in KC on the 30th(night after RR), if Broncos are eliminated by then, imagine Tebow in KC(division rivals).

Raw is in San Deigo(home of the Chargers,another division rival for Tebows Broncos) on February 13th

Raw is in Massachusetts(home of New England Patriots) on March 5th. If the Broncos win this Sunday, regardless if they win the superbowl, imagine how much Tebow would be booed then.

3 potential nights if WWE was actually serious about that.

Though I think we might see Pats-49ers in the finals because those are 2 places WWE are going to in the next several weeks(remember last year how they just happened to be in green bay right after the packers won the superbowl)

On one show you had cartoon characters running around like Mantaur with a Shawn Michaels main event, and on the other, they were doing something revolutionary with the nWo. Which show would you watch? The champion can't be blamed for the entire show sucking.

And I'll use TNA as an example. So is it AJ's fault that TNA got their ass kicked by the WWE while he was champion? But wait, I thought Hulk Hogan was going to be the one to change everything and bring in new audiences, so shouldn't the blame fall on him instead of AJ?

Look at Monday's show. The main angle was the Kane/Cena storyline and it has been for the last few weeks, yet the low ratings are Punk's fault? Heck, they even switched Punk out of the main event segments & ratings are still basically the same.

MAYBE, the real culprit falls on creative. The show's are bad and people are turning away. Doesn't matter if its Punk or Cena who is carrying the strap. The show is still going to suck. Where WWE botched it is that The Summer of Punk should have led to a creative high & change of personality for the show and it didn't at all. They are right back to doing what they doing before the Punk shoot pretty much. Yeah, Punk is on top, but its still the same show, same cliches, same stupidity, same presentation. Nothing really changed.
I'll put it to you like this. Let's say Triple H and Zack Ryder appear in a segment together. Doesn't matter what the segment is whether they're cutting a promo, fighting, singing I'm Walking On Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves, whatever. If the segment rating is good Triple H will take all the credit. If the segment rating tanks Zack Ryder will take all the blame. You almost never see a wrestler say "Man that segment rating bombed because of me."

Some of you may know me as Chuck Taylor's Grenade (previously Spiralshock) on IWF

People aren't getting one thing about the 1st week of Jericho's return. Jericho's return was paired up with the Bella Twins Vs. Eve/Kelly. The divas match segment, normally losing 400,000-800,000 viewers only lost 80,000. Think about that for a second.

Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett fell 721,000 viewers. Beth Phoenix vs. Alicia Fox gained 277,000
Think about that for a sec

Alicia Fox>Beth>Jericho>Orton>Barret

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

RAW looked very poor, the backstage segments were awful. Ryder falling onto a mattress. Kane talking on the mic i hate it. Ryder trying to rescue eve trying to change a wheel on the car. and what a stupid looking car it was!

The daniel bryan kofi kingston match was quite decent but i think they should have had more time.

And Jericho ooming in and not talking AGAIN! How stupid does he look, getting really boring. I actually think TNA is much better than RAW and thats the first i have said this in a long long time!

I rate mondays RAW as a 1 out of 10. Lowest score i have ever rated it!

You are Wrong though. If you are talking about WWE management, then i am sure no one is going to question HHH if one segment tanked in ratings. Aside from the fact that he is basically a office guy now, HHH has made a loads of money for them in the past, so one segment isnt worth it.

If you are talking about IWC, then HHH will be held responsible not ryder. HHH is the draw, he is suppose to bring in viewers, if he is not able to then he is responsible not ryder. I dont really get what was the point of your post anyways.

as for all this ratings arguments go, i dont think WWE even cares about them so much as we do everyweek tbh. I mean if the main event bombs or the opening seg doesnt draw, that is obviously something to be concerned about but i dont think they even bother with the ratings of the rest of the show imo.
Lets face it, After building up for the Jan 2 return of chris jericho, they actually flew him in public instead of using a private jet. Its like Vince knew jericho aint worth a shit for the ratings, so he just didnt bother with the private jet, the secret limo & shit lol.
