Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
Rating was 3.18, 3.19 and 3.16.
Meltzer said that he saw the GM angle plenty of times when he finally wrestles and it always got a big reaction and all that when he finally gets the beatdown, but he said that the Punk/Ace angle got the "smallest" reaction he has ever seen for this, not the announcement for the match and not the GTS. naive WWE thinking that this is even close to Austin/Vince in every aspect, especially when they had more talent in their finger than these two has in two bodies. Punk fans, Ace fans, indy fans, all that BS aside, you all got to admit that this image of Ace, a guy who is twice the size Punk is, acting like he's scared was just ridiculous and not believable, for the same reason Nash/Punk was laughable and Miz and Cena drew one of the lowest numbers in wrestling history in May.
Regardless, I expect that this final segment and last week with Foley and Ace will do acceptable numbers because there was 10 minutes overrun with no competition. For those who wants to know, Austin vs Vince on RAW for the first time ever in 98 with the Foley angle after the match and all that got the biggest number in the history of RAW at that time, 6.0.
