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

What Jericho is doing atm is gunna inevitably make his Punk feud less beneficial for Punk.

I mean i hesitate to use the word self-burial but chris isn't helping with his current schtick.

Its bad enough Punks gunna be feuding with him in the first place but now's he gunna be feuding with someone the audience don't care about.

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

Why are people on CM Punk's back. Saying stuff like he can't draw or it's all his fault for the slump in ratings. Reality check it's not Punk it's the product as a whole. The face is meant to sell merchandise, the story line draws the ratings and heel makes it interesting. It all blends and mixes to make an entertaining and fun to watch show. Let's not beat around the bush the storylines are awful and some backroom staff need sacked, I don't like people getting sacked but they've been so bad for too long they need to go. Vince needs to realise what people want and mix it up abit, you can cater to kids for so long they will grow up and think I'm not watching this shit and stop watching all together. As for the heels I enjoy watching ziggler in the ring but he just isn't interesting whatsoever, same with Alberto del rio. Miz is interesting but can't hold as the main heel. Stop blaming Punk, when they gave him something decent to work with you were all over his cock now the writing and storylines are horrible it's all his fault, he's bland, boring and it's his fault the ratings a low. It's a 2hour show not 15minutes! The people to blame are not the wrestlers but the writers!

This pretty much, Jericho simply isn't that much of a star that using such a formula can work, he does get big pops but I feel he wanted to get even more, plus the fact that the fans didn't turn on him yet when he was supposed to get heat the first night he returned. Let's not forget that he was mostly an upper midcarder in his last run, all of a sudden he does segments where it's all about the fans cheering him? I mean the feud COULD work, if they build it up properly, but if this report is true (I hope it's dirtsheet bs) then CM Punk is in for a nightmare for WM:

WWE officials have suggested an idea that Jericho won't speak on RAW until after the Royal Rumble. There is talk to have Jericho win the Royal Rumble and then finally speak for the first time by giving a victory speech and maybe calling out WWE Champion CM Punk for Wrestlemania 28.

Although if he does win RR as suggested by this report, there will be no questions asked as far as credibillity goes, no doubt.

But Jericho doesnt wanna get cheap heel heat. Of course he can easily go out and trash the city he is on or the fans. Sure many in the crowd will boo him, but the rest will think he is an awesome heel and continue cheering him. He doesnt want that. He wants everyone to hate him.
So instead Jericho is going a different route.

Like Jericho once said, everyone can go out in New York and say "Yankees sucks!" and get booed. But the trick is to say "Yankees rules!" and STILL get booed.

He doesnt wanna come back and be the same old heel. Thats not a challenge for him.
I believe this will pay off in the long run.

This is one of the most most laughable comments I've seen in a long time...

I don't usually criticise but either you are an idiot, or you know your talking absolute nonsense and just want to wind people up...

'Self-burial'... 'feuding with someone the audience don't care about'



I'd reply with reasoning, but with posters like you it's not worth my time

Judging by the normal fluctuations of ratings in between segments and the fact that your biggest new star in Jericho lost a lot of viewers, it really shouldn't be a surprise. Most people never watch a whole raw.

maybe because for the past weeks they've been pairing him with the blandest diva since kelly kelly?

Eve has that talent Kelly has to suck out the interest of anything involved with a segment, every single segment where eve is loses ratings, and it's a proven fact

You're quite delusional if you think people don't want to see Ryder because of Eve. I'm surprised someone would even suggest that. People don't want to see Ryder because the character absolutely sucks.

Also I can't blame people for tuning out for that Jericho stuff. I'm a huge Jericho fan but there's simply nothing entertaining about that segment for the second straight week.
