Punk's look isn't the problem people. He just can't be a face in the WWE.

Looks don't matter if you can draw but those who draw on the highest level tend to have 'the look' lol. And around and around we go!

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

Just an interesting note on Punk concerning casual fans. Well might not be interesting to some of you, but anyway.

I was watching last episodes Raw, where Punk was closing the show with Cena and he was cutting his promo. My Dad was in the room (used to watching wrestling every now and again, stopped when Eddie died) and he just dropped "how can you watch this crap? Why is this guy the champion? He's bloody boring." Just interesting in the height of the debate in regards to Punk drawing and the way the casuals see things. For a hardcore wrestling fan like myself, Punk is my favourite and I look forward to everything he says. However for casual fans, they just cant seem to get behind him.

That's the thing I hate about this forum. People will base 50% of their decision on something based on if they like it, the other 50% is based on something like PPV buys, tv rating and stuff like that.

Something can be real great, but tv rating sucks, so people will suddenly call it average. Or people won't really care about watching something, but it does great rating, and people suddenly jump on that bandwaggon.

Looking at my sig, you can obviously tell I'm not like most people on this forum, I don't care who draws ratings, who does what. If I like a star, I like them, if I don't like them, then I don't. I don't need a reason like "tv ratings" or anything like that, to explain why I like or don't like a star.

Funny thing is, about every single one of these "Why do you care about ratings?" posts are coming from Punk marks.

Waaayyy to much generalisations on this forum.

I find that is mostly because Punk marks get insulted for liking "Someone who can't draw". To quote a few people. People hate a lot on Punk, and usually it is based on his drawing power. I know that hardly anybody cares if their favourites draw or not(me included) and I do not care if someone likes ratings or not.

But the fact is, a lot of the time it is used as an argument as to why you should not like someone(a lot of the time Punk arguments end in the fact he is useless as he can not draw). Which then ends up with the presumption that the person who said it, only likes draw power. Which probably is not true at all.

Either way, I just like who I like



Thanks Punk

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

Wanna know why I don't care about the ratings? Because I'm not some sort of executive. It's not making me any sort of money. Would it be ideal if the things I liked got big ratings and the things I didn't like didn't? Sure. But I'm not gonna sit around and spend half my day trying to say that my least favorite wrestler is the shittiest wrestler alive (I'm talking about most of the people that joined this year that post around here) because he didn't get a good rating or why another guy is amazing because he did. There's so many fucking factors that go into it and honestly, I don't see why it should cross my mind once while I'm trying to enjoy the show.

So you can generalize as LOL PUNK MARK or actually read the fucking post.
