Well said. The reason Punk continues to get pushed despite the terrible ratings is because they don't really have any other options. They seem to want to keep Cena away from winning it for a while so when he's the champion again, it'll feel more special than just "duh, another title win". And better ratings also equals better promotion since the TV shows are their main source in letting everyone know what's coming up next week, next PPV and so on.

A win is a win, though.

Not according to the reports that were posted here some days ago. Those said that WWE aren't too bothered with the ratings because they are on a longtime TV deal which won't end soon. Since that's the case I'd say that the report seems likely to be correct since there are more important things to focus on. We also know that WWE earns more money from the three hour show, even though we also know that the three hour format draws lower ratings.

That said the low ratings are of course not unimportant to them as they are a direct negative thing for WWE, seeing how it's one of the indicators of the interest in the current product.

I usually dont watch fan vid opinions but I agree with EVERYTHING he said. Punk doesn't have the draw power. Cena has alienated half the fan base and that the alternatives are shockingly awful. This generation is really poor though. I don't see Ziggler, Swagger, the Miz or Ryback uniting all audiences. IMO WWE needs to A) give them more control over their characters and B)Get tougher. If you can't draw get out.

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

I really enjoyed raw tonight, great show and a pretty sweet finish as well. Shield made a good impact tonight, really interested to see what their role in TLC will be and when they will debut in-ring. Punk was fantastic on the mic tonight, miz not to bad either. Fatal four way was really cool, Cesaro is growing on me fast, along side Ziggler I think he has a bright future ahead I didn't like him at first but now I am starting to see a lot of potential.

Great raw can't wait for next week.

Check out my WWE gaming videos!

Shilling on the internet used to be a subtle affair.

It doesn't matter if Punk has drawing power or not he's still selling merch and is better than any other option WWE has right now.
