Let me guess every time the ratings are low itīs not because of Punk but when itīs high itīs all because of Punk
Damn I truly believe that because of these kind of reactions CM Punk getīs hated so much by everyone who doesnīt like him
Are you blind? When the rating are low it's all:
"OMG PUNK IS A VANILLA MIDGET!"
"PUNK DOES NOT = DRAW!"
"JUST DE-PUSH PUNK ALREADY!"
And it's not that no one person is a draw in WWE, it's that no one person can draw in big numbers in this day and age without a hot angle, not Punk, not Orton, not HHH, etc. I suppose Cena can based on the fact he drew some good numbers for weeks in a row while doing basically nothing before the whole Kane angle started, but then again this week (or was it last week?) his match dropped 500,000 viewers when it wasn't in a big timeslot. Rock can as well but he's not actively on the show so he doesn't really count.
But that's why it was so surprising that they gained 800,000 viewers the 1/16 show for the final match/segment.
No proven draw in sight except for Mark īthe ratings machineī Henry.
Actually completely forgot about him since he didn't really do anything in the match besides ultimately chase Daniel Bryan. Thing is, if my memory serves me correctly, he never drew extremely well on Raw in the past in all honesty, but I'm not 100% sure on what the numbers are.
I think the increase has to potentially do with Foley coming in, and the fact Punk was talking (when people are interested in him) and not wrestling (when people don't seem to be interested in him) and that it had the same vibe as the shoot he did back in June, albeit not quite as hard-hitting.
