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

I love how the WWE forces fans to cheer their faces and boo their heels. If Punk's fans cheer too loudly next week in Chicago, Vince is going to have Punk raping nuns and biting the heads off of kittens while clubbing baby seals in the ring.

Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

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

Why would you blame 62 yr old Lawler when punk is the WWE champion? The reason it was promoted as the main event was because it involved WWE champion, CM Punk not because jerry fucking lawler was part of it. If you're going to put the blame on Lawler that would mean you expect lawler to be a draw, in which case it could have been anyone facing him in the main event why punk?

All that being said, I think ME+overrun would do good numbers this time. It was only 6 mins at the end + steel cage gimmick usually draws.

LOL. I will say this -- while plenty of the IWC were pining for "interesting and edgy" CM Punk to turn back heel, they failed to realize how Punk at least become a legitimate other #1 face on Raw.

Despite all the bitching and flailing about whether Punk draws or had become stale, he was undoubtedly over and was getting cheered just as much (if not usually more) than Cena was for months. We spent years demanding that the WWE elevate someone else to compete with Cena on the roster and with the fanbase, and Punk was as close as anyone's gotten in a while.

But now, they're turning him heel, and while Punk may not care (after all, he likes being a heel), and may always be a better heel than face, it's ironic that it's happening this way. Now, we're back to having Cena as THE dominate face and you have to hope they don't screw up Punk's heel turn because people just don't want to boo him.

Watch Punk be "suspended for his actions" by AJ or some other bullshit to keep him off the show.

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

For all the HHHaterz out there calling out Hunter's segment pointless and unnecessary need to understand that he is among the VERY few top draws on the show. I will be surprised if his segment doesn't do the best or one of the best numbers of the night. Hunter's only competition IMO is Cena in terms of drawing power not counting the trinity of Austin, Rock, Hogan.

Its punk's job to make sure they dont. I hate his hypocritical ass but he is a really good mic worker atleast for today's standards. He should be able to get good heat. I remember him opening WM 27 RAW go home show(I think) in chicago as a heel, he should do the same next week.

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

Overrun should do really well imo. It was a RawActive match, it had a steel cage and they promoted it throughout the show. I think it will do a great number.
