Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
I think its ridiculous to compare ratings from the Attitude Era to this era. For almost everyone, the AE was just a fling.
Ratings started dropping the second the storylines started to end. The major players were still there in early 2000, but the viewers started leaving. That fling was over and they never went back again.
One thing that drew big in 1998 would barely have drawn half of the original rating if it would have been done in 2002 by the same wrestlers. The storylines helped a lot to make the wrestlers interesting, when storylines became weaker so did the wrestlers.
Just look at today, The Rock and Stone Cold can pop a rating for a short period of time. But for everytime they show up, the less viewers will care.
