Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
I don't think the problem is any superstar, not any one individual. It's the whole show & presentation of the show. It's not C.M. Punk or John Cena or A.J. as G.M. It's everything. You know why people tuned into RAW 1,000? It's because they were expecting something different. It was the first 3-hour show, it was going to feature a ton of Legends & returns. It was supposed to be a spectacle. People will still watch WWE if it is fun.
What WWE needs to do, I feel, it change things up on a week-by-week basis. Stop following such a heavily predictable script. Every single show does not have to start with some 20 minute in-ring promo. We don't have to have each show end with a tag match of team babyface against team heel. We don't need the G.M. authority figure to show up & make matches on the fly in backstage vignettes to kill time. Start the show with some anarchy going on backstage, or start the show with a match already in progress, like the two wrestlers couldn't wait to get going, or start the match with an injury angle. Something different. Give us a cliffhanger to start the show so we have a reason to stick around & watch the show. Then give us a cliffhanger at the end of the show so we want to tune-in next week to see the resolve. Move different guys around, try different things, put different guys in different spots against other wrestlers.
