Hope the main event flops, as it should because Punk vs Lawler is just a horrible match-up no matter how you look at it. Even with the awesome steel cage structure around them. Have not seen the show and wont (maybe save for the HHH speech) but I'm surprised Cena was given a random match-up with The Moz in the middle of the show. It was around the 10PM spot, right?

Prepare for the first overrun viewership loss in months.

I really like Punks and Jerry's mini feud. I really want a back and forth promo between them. Jerry could take him, imo.

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

This should do an all time record rating

- Squash matches everywhere
- Triple H appreciation night
- A 70 year old wrestling in the main event
- TOUTTWITTERFACEBOOKYOUTUBELOL

What more could you ask for?

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

If the overrun loses viewers and isn't one of the top 3 segments of the night, I'll concede Punk isn't a draw. That build up was mostly on him and for once, even though Cena was in there at the end, Punk was the primary draw (not sure on Jerry's drawing ability in this day and age). If he fails to do well in gains or being one of the top segments of the night, then that's pretty much that.

Granted, he probably won't be in the highest rated segment of the show since the HHH retirement stuff was promoted just as much if not more than Punk/Jerry... and HHH is HHH. So I'm not expecting Punk/Lawler to do more than that, but he should at least be in the second or third highest slot of the night in the overrun. I know Punk matches don't generally draw, but the build to it was perfect and a great way to get Punk over as a hated heel who people want to see get his ass kicked. There's no reason it shouldn't have one of the highest 2-3 numbers of the night unless Punk really isn't a draw. He was given the spotlight and main event for Raw finally in a highly (TV) promoted and built match.

But we'll see.

I'm watching you...

Obis it'll never lose viewers. It never does.

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.
Talks about generalizing negatively and generalizes in his own post. gotta love it.

Stay on your feet! No crawling, no CHEATING!(you're too big, fella)

Oh but it has, and with Punk if I'm not mistaken. Of course I'm pretty sure when Punk did the match wasn't anywhere near as hyped as this one.

But that's my point. It has no reason to lose viewers and if it does, then it's confirmed Punk isn't a draw.

However, it should also be at least the number 2 segment of the night. Number 3 at worst if the Cena/Miz match (somehow) does well since it did go into the 9:00 hour if I'm not mistaken. But I don't know.

I'm watching you...
