SummerSlam was decreasing every year anyway. SummerSlam 2009 got higher than 2010 and same thing in 2008 it got higher than 2009. I guess Brock Lesnar did a good job. It had bigger mainevents than last year anyway.

Edited: Actually Survivor Series in 2008 received 319,000 pay-per-view buys not since 2007. So it's higher than 2011. SummerSlam got 311k and Survivor Series got 312k very slightly higher.

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

I'm seriously going to lol so fucking hard if Cena isn't on this week and DAT RYBACK kills it in the numbers. Either way, we should be in for another fun week. If Ryback is a hit = bring on the haterade. If Ryback is a flop = bring on the haterade. Good times lol.

Indeed StarBuck. He is the most polarising superstar in all of the WWE, THE RYBACK!



Thanks Punk

I just want him to cut promos and have matches that last longer then 5 mins. He's been doing the same old shit since April.

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

A Punk/Ryback promo has all sorts of weird and wonderful possibilities.

"You're hand picked by the brass because you're big!"

"Feed me!"

"I won't let you overshadow me like John Cena!"

"MOOOOOOAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"

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

Not really promos, but I liked the little pre-recorded talk he gave during his entrance against Jinder Mahal a few weeks ago on RAW.



Thanks Punk

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

They shouldn't simply drop the Michael Cole-stated point that Ryback is a voracious reader of books. Have Punk attempt to belittle Ryback psychologically and then...

PUNK: "You've done well for yourself, as management greases the wheels for you and you get to make a big splash by swallowing whole little fish. But we're talking about a completely different level, Ryback. I am the WWE Champion. I have been WWE Champion for 316 days. 316. That makes me CM Punk: 316. [Said as though it is mimicry of Steve Austin's old "Austin 3:16."] And you? You've never been a champion at all, have you, Ryback? You probably don't understand how the entire heirarchy works here. I'm WWE Champion. That makes me top dog. You cannot know what is in store for you in this main event tonight. I'm going to take you to school, Ryback. I'm going to hurt you and humiliate you before the entire world."

RYBACK: "Punk... What you say carries much weight. You are a learned warrior. And yet, the irrevocable bonds between what, on one hand, constitutes your experiences and your trials and tribulations, and that, on the other [pointing toward WWE Championship belt] which represents the fruits of your indefatigable, inexhaustible labor... Are not beyond my comprehension. Far from it. To quote John Dryden, 'Beware the fury of a patient man.' And, Punk, the patience I possess is not--"

PUNK: "Wait, what?"

RYBACK: "I have accumulated vast reservoirs of knowledge. I have studied your methods, watched your contests. For as Sun Tzu writes in The Art of War, 'Know thyself, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.' And I do know you, Punk. I know that you, today, sit at the top of the food chain of WWE... The only problem for you is my hunger grows more achingly voracious each time I am physically near you. To wit, I say... FEED... ME... MORE!!!!!!!!"

Then just leave that aspect to his character alone for several months as he goes back to roaring, "FEED ME MORE!"

His vocabulary must have a helluva appetite...

Awesome idea actually. Makes him seem very neutral and honest to the matter, and sticks to his character by "feeding" up the foodchain.



Thanks Punk
