What else is there to discuss outside of the most overpushed person on the roster and his (lack of) drawing abilities? That Santino and Zack Ryder lose viewers every time they're on? Not very interesting, is it?
And the logic is indeed mind-blowing. Orton as champion on Smackdown gets 1.7 and all blame is placed on him without anyone even looking at segment breakdowns or anything beyond the full show ratings but Raw is doing terribly bad with Punk as champion and him main eventing the show yet he always gets away with it because his segments gain viewers since the rest of the show has viewers tuning out at a rapid pace. And to further show Punk's lack of drawing abilities, ratings are constantly going down with him being the centerpiece of the show. At least when Cena's meaningless feuds main evented, they didn't reach the upper 2 area for a month straight!
First it was "PUNK CANT DRAW BECAUSE WWE MAKES HIM IRRELEVANT!!!!11" now there's new excuses like "He gains back the 500k viewers that tuned out and still gets called a ratings killer!!!! ARGH!!!!".
It was actually 1.57 and 1.6. As I said be mad about truth, put the frustration on me, obsessed man. Also your obsessed friend Rock316ae, made another excuse saying Orton was a draw, didn't he have Vince, Shane, Steph, Trips, etc. if Orton is a big draw he will help SD but instead it was about to get cancelled as Mark Henry, Bryan, and show helped it to gain a lot more. Its hard to talk to trolls or obsessed men, as they run away and the only thing they do is give me red reps and never respond, run away from the truth. Punk can draw, Orton can draw, everyone can draw if been given the right storyline, booking, and opponents.
Even tho Orton had a big supported career before, he can't draw in SD, it's a failed project tbh, admit the truth, a guy like Batista who was with Orton in evolution drew bigger than him and he wasn't meant to be one but guess what he's a bigger star then him. I don't hate wrestlers because they can't draw or they're aren't big enough, I cheer the talent that entertains me more. Not saying Orton is not a good talent but he's lazy getting suspended and doing stupid staff. People like you say Orton was good on the mic or had a great character before, so what? Why don't you talk about the current Orton, many agrees that he's boring now.
