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

Since when does 234 = 238? And no matter what point in his career he still wasn't a tall guy. Not to mention it's known that they always add a few pounds or take them away when it comes to billing them. So you didn't own anybody. For most of his career he was in the 210-225 range. Not that a few pounds matter all that much all that matters is Shawn is the poster boy for the smaller group of wrestlers in comparisons to how big wrestlers usually are and you're just grasping at straws to hate on Bryan, Ryder and Punk when all you have to do is say that you simply don't like them. Not use dumb ass reasoning like a few pounds and claim that the viewers at home are gonna say "Fuck Zack Ryder for not weighing 5 more pounds and doesn't have the ability to give me an orgasm like HBK I'm turning the damn channel."

The announcer said hbk was 234 pounds, same as randy orton

OWNED


And, as we know, the WWE has never exaggerated the height and weight of their wrestlers. Andre the Giant was really 7"5 also, right?

Wanted:

A tall well built woman with good
reputation, who can cook frogs
legs, who appreciates a good fuc-
schia garden, classical music and tal-
king without getting too serious.
But please read only lines 1, 3 and 5.

Brisbane Lions supporter logic, maybe?

Anyway, all that business aside, I'm still surprised that a few posters in here get so buoyed by the news of ratings rising/dropping favouring (or being against) guys/gals.

I'm guessing its the fandom shining through again and overriding most sense. Yes, it may mean more backstage investment for your guy but I'm curious to know how many support the mindset of backstage and management in the first place (ie: uninteresting and bland story lines, inability to build more the a few people up at a time, and continually propping up the dreaded social media campaign that interferes with the quality of the shows). Your favourite might just seem not so favourable if the big guys back there have their way.

Andre the Giant was 2.24m tall, a.k.a 7 ft 4 inches.

HBK was not 234 pounds for the vast majority of his career. You're being ridiculous by using a one-off announced entrance weight by the WWE (wrestling is fictional) as a source for your argument. Stop it. I'm not kidding here.

No Evolution, really, Andre was 8 feet tall. I saw him towering over Manute Bol while demonstrating a sweet sky hook.

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

ITT: Pro wrestling = NBA height + Bodybuilding weight. I feel enlightened, I always thought it was about entertainment aka wrestling skills, charisma, mic skills, storylines, characters and all that irrelevant jazz that made me watch the shows. Need to tweet all the smaller guys to bulk up or else I won't be allowed to like em anymore. I'll start yessing for D Bryan again once he hits the 500 lbs mark so he can be as big as Big Show.
