Punk is taking 7 years to draw = Punk is a success

Ryback is an inconsistent draw after 7 months = Ryback is a failure

I'm not trying to bash Punk, he did achieve something, although I'm still not sure how he would do without investment, but that's the point in maineventers - beeing invested in by the creative and he finally made it on a consistent basis, albeit with big stars around him (Foley, Cena supporting him often recently). However just because he made it (and deservedly so, at least if the numbers stay up) doesn't mean that others, who his fanbase targets won't do the same after the same amount of years beeing in the WWE, maybe even better or at least equal. Too often, ratings are taken at face value on a weekly basis to justify why someone likes their wrestler/hates another instead of trying to judge their drawing ability rationally, it just doesn't work like that. In order for someone to become an actual draw, he has to be a legitimate mainstream star, and apart from Cena and the oldtimers or part time megastars (Rock, Lesnar), nobody is at that level yet.

I love how people blame Ryback for ratings drops. If it's Ryback, why don't the numbers come back? Nobody on the roster is a draw. Fans tune in for the beginning pieces and if Vince is one and then they turn it off. Do ratings people really expect people to care about a 1 minute squash match against a wrestler nobody knows or remembers?

In the segment-by-segment, the show opened with the C.M. Punk promo and Mick Foley coming out first quarter doing a 3.21. Ryback vs. JTG lost 432,000 viewers so Ryback is still not a ratings draw. Randy Orton vs. Wade Barrett gained 123,000 viewers. Daniel Bryan & Kane vs. Prime Time Players gained 1,000 viewers. The Vickie Guerrero/John Cena in ring at 9 p.m. gained 373,000 viewers, although 9 p.m. has become a traditional gain spot doing a 3.25. Kofi Kingston vs. Antonio Cesaro and A.J. Lee and Vickie Guerrero backstage lost 451,000 viewers. Zack Ryder & Santino Marella vs. Jinder Mahal & Heath Slater and A.J. Lee vs. Beth Phoenix lost 304,000 viewers, so Lee wrestling is not a big deal to viewers. At 2.70, it was the low point of the show. The Sheamus and Big Show in-ring 324,000 viewers, which came at 10 p.m., and is the best 10 p.m. growth in a while doing a 2.94. Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow lost 189,000 viewers.

The in-ring Susan G. Komen check presentation lost 143,000 viewers. Alberto Del Rio vs. Justin Gabriel gained 59,000 viewers. The Punk/Foley team announcement gained 708,000 viewers to a show high 3.26 overrun.
I'm confused how people can reach the conclusion that Punk is drawing the high numbers for this show after reading these numbers. He's in two main segments, the two segments that traditionally draw the highest numbers without exception. The beginning (to see what's happening this week) and the end (to see the conclusion/build up of the show, Flair? and/or people waiting for the following show to come on).

-Vince said television ratings are good. He said they remain the No. 1 show on USA Network and Syfy. Vince said the third hour of Raw is doing "extremely well."
From Vince this morning on the latest conference call. How the fuck does he get way with making statements like that and not one caller call him out on his bullshit?

People, I was joking. Jeebus. All these folks claiming they don't care about ratings and trying to act like they don't care about ratings then go and get butthurt over a joke. I thought the face would have made that clear.

Starbuck, your sig/avy combo (glad you brought that back) reminded me that the SummerSlam buyrate for 2012 was up ~20% over last year. BROCK.
