Then essentially ratings don't tell you whether you're doing a good job or not.

It tells you if you're pushing the right guys to the main event.

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

So was Shawn Michaels a wrong decision to be a main eventer?

Edit: I'll answer it for you...no.

You mean the same segment Cena was in? Admit it. It's the content and storyline, not the wrestlers.

Right guys + right Storyline. Cena is practically being booed every arena these days, he is not going to draw being involved in a shit storyline with kane.

Put punk in his place, the ratings would be even worse.

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

Shawn Michaels is a talent that undoubtedly should've been a main eventer and to base your reasoning off a rating is laughable.

So is chris jericho. Talent isnt enough to be a main eventer.

Have an exciting segment with Zack Ryder and Jack Swagger and it has a good chance of drawing a decent quarter hour. Have the exact same segment with John Cena and Triple H and it's practically guaranteed to draw a big quarter hour number. It's a combination of storylines and the stars in them. When guys like Cena and HHH aren't really doing anything of note, they still draw based on their name alone. Put them into big time situations and they deliver big time numbers. The likes of Swagger and Ryder don't have that same attachment to the fans and familiarity with them either so they don't perform as well until they reach that level. It's common sense really and since you've been in many ratings threads and have seen the breakdowns, you should know the formula that works by now.

Star A + Star B + Exciting Storyline = Success

Megastar A + Megastar B + Exciting Storyline = Big Success

Icon/Legend A + Icon/Legend B + Exciting Storyline = HUGE Success

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

This is why I don't even get into the ratings. I'd rather watch a Swagger/Ryder promo than some Goldberg or Hogan shit. Sure it'd draw better but it'd probably be dreadful.
