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

How can people blame Punk when he wasn't even the main selling point? The whole show was built around the contract signing. Also, the show was full of recaps. It's really unfair to blame Punk.

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

I love how people blame one wrestler (cena or punk) as the reason why ratings are in the shitter.
With the lack of decent angles and new stars, it's a miracle RAW still gets around 3.0.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

September/October also has playoff hunt and post season baseball along with Monday Night Football and all the network's top shows come back and hyped shows debut. Blood bath up ahead.

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

Calm down folks, the 2hr Go-home RAW show for last year's Summerslam, Aug 8th 2011, did only 3.09 rating which was a disappointment(although Viewership was higher with 4.54m average compared to this week's 4.30m for regular 2hrs). Adult 18-49 actually dropped 17.8% compared to previous year and teen males also went down 38.4%. And Punk retained/won the title last year by defeating Cena. Del rio cashed in and won, but that had nothing to do with ratings, Cena-Del Rio was original plan but Punk's shoot promo kinda changed everything from MITB.

Point is, One week's low rating is nothing to worry about. I still believe Punk is set to retain by pinning Big show at summerslam. He will most likely drop it to the Rock at rumble, Cena wins Rumble 2013 on the same night and there you have it, your Wrestlemania 29 main event.

Once in a lifetime 2. :Rock4

Been ten months too long. I think it'll happen at Night of Champions as that picture shows, though. Not SummerSlam, which is where Show is there only to take the pin.

Ten great PPV matches

But I disagree with the Night of Champions statement. I think this is happening at SummerSlam



Nobody can Rise Above Cena




Thanks Punk

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

Nah, it'll take place in NoC because it's in Cena's hometown and they want to give him another "moment" there. Plus they want to drag the Punk/Cena feud as long as they can, so it's wiser for them to let Punk pin Show after Cena does the job (as in FUs Show) so they have an official one-on-one on NoC and a couple of rematches until a traditional elimination match at Survivor Series with Punk overcoming the dirty way somewhere down the road so he takes the Rock Bottom at Royal Rumble.

That makes more sense. More so, when I think of it, Punk mentioned the new Title Design probably debuting after NOC. So Cena might introduce it as a new start to his reign or something.



Thanks Punk

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

they have 1 hour of crap, tout/paulyd/recaps so much crap, i mean how many times did they show the lesnar/hhh stuff, am i dreaming or did i see that same long promo 4-5 times in 3 hours

the show was terrible at 2 hours, now we have 1 hour of extra garbage on top of it

how any of you can defend the product right now is laughable and shows your just a fanboy, you would defend satino sitting in the ring for 2 hours on a chair
