Punk goes out every week and performs extremely well, whether you like the guy or you don't, you have to admit that. They all do their best with what they're given. The problem is Cena. As bboy has pointed out above. No Cena and the ratings drop. This isn't the fault of Cena or anyone else on the roster. It's quite clearly the WWE's fault.

Nobody else is on his level. Punk is the closest. There are so many people out there (kids and adults included) who only tune in to watch Cena and don't give a shit about the rest of the show. It's pretty clear when you have stories of WWE giving partial refunds to people who went to live shows expecting Cena to be there. It's a sad fucking state that they have nobody that can replace him. They have nobody built up for it. Where's Randy Orton? Filming a fucking movie. Sheamus is being built to be in that spot but he's not there yet. It's just too little too late. This is a desperate time, they have spent the last however many years dicking around and building only one guy and ignoring everyone else.

They didn't lose ALL THAT many viewers. It's the lowest rating in a long time but it isn't THAT many people, they still have heaps of people watching and there are other factors here. The football, the fact that ratings often dip around this time of year, and the fact it is a 3 hour show. A lack of Cena would definitely have contributed to it though.

They've been riding on the success of Cena for way too long and haven't been using him to put anyone else up on the same level. They came close with CM Punk this year. But they went and screwed that up by putting him below Cena all the time. This was bound to happen eventually, Cena would get injured and they wouldn't know what to do. What happens if Cena can't make HIAC? Punk v. Ryback? I would rather not see that. But if not him then who else?

^^^^ This. They put all their eggs in 1 basket with Cena. They made him an unstoppable force in 07 and they kept it going at the rest of the rosters expense.

Bring back Attitude. As much as the internet hates to hear that, the ratings would skyrocket and you know it. Also, bring back the Hardcore title!
What aspects of Attitude though? Also, we have a heap of titles at the moment and a lot of them have lost their significance.

Compare the roster back then to this one now, it would never work, they simply dont have the talent.

Gee I don't think it's that clear cut. Sure, back then you had a few once-in-a-lifetime performers and legitimately established stars whose pulling power will be next to impossible to emulate nowadays (can't ever say it's 100% impossible though). While starpower is sorely lacking nowadays, as are angles that go all the way to the bottom of the midcard and undercard, today's roster is pretty stacked in terms of talent.

The one thing that has been noted that is lacking in spades performer-wise is the requested desire from the company. That's only word of mouth from WWE cronies, however, and might just be there own way of skewing things to take the blame off of themselves for the company's shortcomings.

CM Punk is indeed the best in the world at killing the ratings.


But hey you can blame Orton for this one too, it's ok.

Punk/Rock will get about 3 weeks or so. I can imagine them getting multiple segments per show and via satellite/titantron if needed for Rock's schedule.

Good idea he left the last part off his t-shirt



Thanks Punk

I call dibs on GTS, Pepsi Plunge and running knee in corner. I am sure Sheamus will take the rest.

They both get shitted on for being bad ratings draws, and rightfully so, they can't draw worth for shit.

Cena is the ONLY draw in the company and that's the way it is. Sheamus, Punk and Orton are all Jobbers compared to Cena. That's not opinion, that's fact from watching the television.

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

The inevitable 2.3 will come soon. Mark my words. We're at the point were soon we'll start seeing a real change in programming. Hell, they'll already be getting less than 3 million viewers in a couple of segments soon.

WWE Top 5 Matches of 2014

1. John Cena vs. Antonio Cesaro - ****
2. Bray Wyatt vs. Daniel Bryan - ****
3. Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton - ***3/4
4. Antonio Cesaro vs. Randy Orton - ***3/4
5. Daniel Bryan vs. Christian - ***1/4
