the reason the product is this shitty and bland is because they are too pussy to make an enjoyable wrestling show for everyone, the fact is they are too busy with looking good in the media and the mainstream, they forget to improve the quality of the show

Vince is the media's bitch, here's an example, now I understand and applaud supporting the fight against breast cancer, but can I just ask, what difference would it make to change the colors of the sets to pink, would cancer magically disappear by having John Cena wear pink? would people be cured just because the rope is pink ?

my issue isn't with the pink ropes or the sets, it's the fact that Vince would bend over just to look noble in the public's eye, and the sad thing is he's trying too hard , not just the breast cancer, but with the whole package, GLAAD, the B A STAR , etc.. I mean a show about people punching each other for 3 hours is gonna protest against bullying ? come on now


Vince is too scared to pull something edgy because he's afraid it would give him bad buzz, when the fact that that's not true, you could be edgy AND get some positive buzz, look at last year's WWE with CM Punk after the infamous shoot promo, it got a lot of people talking and pay attention to the show and it was cutting edge


you could be edgy without having a guy rape a dead corpse at a funeral home or bleeding for no reason whatsoever other than the fuck of it, as a fan I don't need pointless blood, just give me shit like CM Punk's rise last year for example , that's all i'm asking , is it too much ?

There is different kinds of PG the PG where it is borderline G rated which is WWE and the other where you can bleep out swear words like Smackdown used to. And have edgy TV.
YES WWF Smackdown was PG but look at that PG compared to this. The difference is like the difference between a PG-13 flick and a R rated flick. WWE is in love with this, if they could be G rated they would.

Hopefully soon. I want to know what happens during the show but I fall asleep and have to watch a recording the next day.

I'd take Ryback over Sheamus anytime of the day, at least Ryback doesn't make me wanna bust a pipe anytime he's on tv, that doll segment last night

I can't begin to imagine the dark days of Sheamus being the top guy of the company

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

I think it's many things that are to blame for the decreasing ratings.

1. The WWE are trying to expand in everything & not focusing on what made them.
They want to be mainstream, be in Hollywood. (WWE Films & the saturday morning show)

2. The audience, they are trying to bring in.
They want the younger crowd, the children. (rating PG)

3. The older crowds seem to be left out.
The product just doesn't seem to connect with me anymore.
So I seem to be turning the channel a lot more.
"JBL is poopy", what is that?

4. The writing & storylines.
It's just not good, remember most of them are hollywood writers.
I doubt some of them even watched wrestling, before being hired.

5. The advertising revenue.
They want the primetime ads, not the late night adult ads.

6. Lida's campaign.
Whatever they do, someone will try to use it againdst them.

7. The wrestlers.
It's not who we like, it's who the WWE want us to like.
So they force feed us who they want to succeed.
Then bury who makes it on his own, just because they weren't involved. (Zack Ryder, not a fan btw)

8. The competition.
There's better stuff on, durning the fall.
Different sports games & new episodes of popular shows start up again.

they can swear, "Bitch" and "Ass" are commonly allowed for a PG show, as long as they don't mention sexual or racial slurs like "Fuck" or "......" it's ok

hell didn't Aj say "shit" last night during her awful promo ?


I'm a fan of swearing in wrestling, I think it could be helpful and interesting when used right , like for example Steve Austin's character, his character was a redneck that didn't give a shit, that's why cursing and swearing helped his character, The Rock and many others too

another example was CM Punk's promo last year, it was out of the blue and shocking at the time,

however when it's used wrong it becomes pointless, like every TNA promo in 2010, it's like they were saying just for the sake of saying it, it looked forced and cheesy

plus, my issue with the current promos isn't saying ass or bitch, it's the fact that it's scripted and sugar-coated

Stuff that makes us hate a heel like beating up a girl, lighting someone on fire, kidnapping someone is just not happening anymore. In main event fueds there used to be a back story and hatred towards each other. You wanted the face to kick the heels ass.
Now for the last 3 years its basically the same buildup for 4 weeks untill the PPV, they end the show in a run in or something. And all the mid carders have no storylines or backstories at all.

Even up untill around 2007 everyone had a back story.

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

Nexus is like the last good storyline, WWE stoped caring about Storylines when they have the guest stars who didnt care about WWE just promoting their thing. Triple H breaking into Ortons house is something cool that happends.

WWE is at its best from Royal Rumble untill night after WM. They actually care.
