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

I really feel like writing a long, rambling post/paper/rant about Vince McMahon & how he has continually gotten lucky over the years, how he is overrated as a promoter & how he has tarnished the entire industry with his "vision" of what the shows should be. But I don't know if I care enough to put that much effort into something anymore.

His father with the WWWF, then VKM "uniting" the territories by stealing all the talent right as cable went big. Hogan catching fire & becoming mainstream. Continuing through the early 90's steroid trials with the Afa threats to jurors. Then instead of dying to WCW years later, he lucked into a hot streak with the likes of MULTIPLE once-in-a-lifetime talents while WCW continually blundered & made mistakes. Now WWE is publicly traded. It's fucking insane while he pisses away millions & millions of dollars on stupid shit like Linda running for senate & WWE films. Just crazy.

Not everyone would agree of course, and some would call Vince McMahon the best promoter of all-time & honestly, that's hard to dispute. But there's a lot of revisionist history & brainwashing that has happened over the years too & that will only continue to get worse the older we all get & the more time that passes by. And yet, despite being a dreadful human being, an adulterer, a drug abuser, a person that exploits people, a carny, he'll be remembered as a pioneer & a "genius."

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

This rating is so sad to hear that I actually wish it can continue so the WWE can really shake things up. It's not even CM Punk's fault either. A lot of people find him entertaining so it has to be the shitty product overall that is killing itself in the ratings. We don't want to endure 3 hours of it especially during football season.

1. John Cena
2. Dean Ambrose
3. Randy Orton
4. Seth Rollins
5. AJ Lee

And yet, WWE won't care and this won't change anything. WWE put KANE AND DB (who have been death to ratings recently) in the main event. They seemingly don't give a shit.

Yeah a main event with no babyfaces was never going to draw.

Vince is an idiot and the non stop John Cena parade that he's been force feeding people for the last 7 years is FINALLY showing it's side effects. Without the proper supporting cast, the show is a joke. Losing HBK, HHH, Taker, Batista, Edge, Hardy, Umaga, Angle, JBL, Jericho, MVP, Kennedy, Benjamin, Morrison, Eddie, Benoit, and others over the years and the failure to create new stars fucked them and they mostly did it to themselves. MVP and Kennedy should have been the next big things but the E just threw them away. Now of course Kennedy was injury prone, but still. Then there was always Lashley who, despite the IWC hate, was pretty over and could have been pretty big.

But they just kept shooting themselves in the foot with SHIT booking. They buried Barrett, they held back Ziggler, fuck it took Punk's contract expiring and a worked shoot promo that went viral to keep this man in the company otherwise he would have been history and guess what? They actually RELY on this man. If Punk left today the company's fucked. Same with Bryan. They didn't want Bryan to succeed. Vince wanted to play politics and now what happened? Top star/draw. The WWE is just run by imbeciles with archaic, aging mentalitys.

I hope this company keeps getting the shit beat out of them. I pray, PRAY for the day Impact beats Raw in the ratings and by the looks of things, it's not too far away.
Don't forget how they fucked up The Miz.

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

Wrestling seriously needs TNA to get it's shit in gear and beat them or get anywhere near them in the ratings.

Then and only will WWE get it's ass in gear.

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

I'm interested in this talk about how TNA becoming better will make WWE better for the sake of rival promotions one-upping the other. What happens if you guys start enjoying TNA more should this neck and neck competition become more apparent in the future? A switch of alliances perhaps? What if TNA were able to, by some miracle, help put WWE out of business?

And what do ya know, they're doing the same thing for SD.

Though technically I think Kane is a face... but then again Kane/Bryan is a very tweenerish team, so who knows. But that is an interesting point that the main event had no solid 100% indisputable face in it... well besides AJ I guess.

I'm watching you...
