As for now bring back Henry and turn R-Truth heel. Here they will have something worthy to watch throughout the show.
Punk is gaining a million and near a million in the last 2 months, more than anything Cena gained in the last 2 year. People also should stop talking about Cenas buyrates its not any higher than Punk, theyre the same have been decreasing every year with or without Cena, only Lesanr & Rock could do it.
A whole lot of people are more interested in the political matters of the US, than wrestling.

Still doesn't change that vanilla roidlets with acne full over his back will make people watch, at least get a guy who actually is bignripped, not some random nerd who has taken a few cycles and still managed to become fat. Sheamus won't get far at all. I wish this generation had their own BPP, not some uncharismatic nerds trying to become Hogan or Goldberg.

No doubt. The Wolfpack still remains one of the greatest things I have seen from Rasslin' TV. They attracted that teens demo like no other with the "cool factor". Besides the fact that it was a group of huge, believable and charismatic superstars, their presentation was perfect. Nobody could have done it that way besides those guys because that's who they really are. The walk to the ring, the sarcastic facial expressions, the "leaning on the ropes" during a promo, the look, the theme, perfect.

The sport just isn't as popular. Ultimately, no amount of change is going to save a dying fad. Something outside the box will have to make wrestling "cool" again. If people have stopped watching, how are they to know that it has changed to begin with? We complain about the industry dying, but we're the ones who still watch. It's the ones that don't watch that need to be brought back, or new viewers brought in. The demand just isn't there.
Unfortunately, I don't think wrestling can become huge again. The Attitude Era is the greatest era ever and it can't be replaced but can't be duplicated either. With stricter rules and more awareness regarding the consequences of blading left & right and taking huge bumps, it was shown that such a thing cannot last very long. Now unless wrestling becomes like the AE again, it will not reach another popular era and is likely going to fade out with its dying popularity while MMA/UFC is on the way in. And we all know another AE wont happen because the wrestlers can't just jump from cells, land on thumbtacks, take chair shots to the head or blade every other week since the effort is more put into stopping deaths at a young age rather than pushing the wrestlers towards the edge.

It works both ways. If a Punk segment does poorly it's all his fault, forgetting everyone else in the segment. The annoying anti-mark/mark shenanigans in this thread/forum make me want the admins to make the mention of "CM Punk" a bannable offence on the forums

Ratings are the quality of the show, not particularly the people in it most of the time. Sheamus's ratings can be poor, and Punk's failings ratings wise are well documented, yet they draw 1m tonight. Point proven.

^spot on

I hate how people put so much importante in the wrestler "drawing power", when it's already proven that no matter how much a wrestler draws it doesn't help at all if the whole product/storylines/booking is a piece of shit, which it is right now, the blame shouldn't go to any particular wrestler but rather the overall quality of the show, which is obviously, crap

On Raw 1000, they had about 6 million viewers and Punk got the ball to run with and he attacked The Rock to turn heel. By next week, half these viewers were gone as expected. And there's no "he didn't get to main event" or "WWE intentionally held him down" excuse to cover this up. Fact that the indy midget* was not a good enough draw to keep the viewers they managed to bring back for that one night. Try explaining that one to everyone that disputes Punk not being a draw!

His segments (with far better proven draws such as Vince or Cena btw) gaining 500k or 1 million viewers that all tuned out in the previous (filler) segments don't mean shit. And before somebody talks about me saying Ryback or whoever else is a draw, I'm only joking there and frankly, I don't care about them. Only thing that matters to me is Punk flopping in becoming what WWE wishes he could be. That's all and I'm not even gonna pretend otherwise.

* = I have nothing against independent (or short) wrestlers. It's just that term fits Punk to a T, so I'll use it when I see fit.
Except it doesn't suit Punk to a T... just how many 6'1 midgets have you seen? It might fit Aries, Bourne or Bryan, but not Punk. You are being ridiculous as per usual.

That's not ALL Attitude was and you know it

I'd honestly be really happy if WWE just gave me a product that didn't feel like a 3 hour long commercial that featured wrestling breaks.

The things TNA is doing appeal to me, for example. That's why I watch it. I think the push of Bobby Roode as the #1 guy was great. It started off a bit rocky at first with how he first won the title, and I thought they kinda fucked up on that, but the rest of his reign was awesome. It makes Punk's reign look like crap in comparison. He had great matches, he could talk well, he did a terrific job as the mega heel champion, his rivalry with James Storm was awesome, but most importantly, TNA presented him AS a champion. They did basically everything in their power to take a guy who had been in a tag team the preceding 4 years and make the man seem like a legit champion. Guess what? People were into him. Punk, on the other hand, they've so badly fucked up with him that I'd rather not watch anymore.

I don't even really care about the giant brawls, occasional swearing, sexual themes or violence in TNA. Sure its there, but there's more. The biggest difference I see is that they're more willing to let guys have creative input into their characters, and help them accentuate their strengths. Look at Bully Ray. 3 years ago, did anyone think that he'd eventually turn into the best heel in the industry? Not a chance. TNA took the risk with him and there was great reward. Ditto with Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels, Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Christian, and all sorts of other guys at some point in the past.

WWE, in stark contrast, will take a guy like Christian, who flourished in TNA, and have him dance with Brodus and lose the WHC to Randy Orton 2 days after winning the damn thing because Vince has this stupid idea in his head. Dolph Ziggler is very competent on the mic, yet he hardly ever gets the chance to talk. Daniel Bryan is terrific in ring, so the Fed decides to stick him with a limited move set where he repeats the same 5-7 moves over and over again. Zack Ryder was really over with the fans, so the WWE decides to stick him with John Cena to quell the boos and eventually Ryder is kicked to the curb. Why is it that they don't just let these guys work? They're always saddled with bullshit. That's not to say that the WWE has always been this way, lots of guys have had input and been allowed to showcase their strengths. This era...not so much it seems.
