It isn't the roster people... really, this roster has a lot of talent. I'd say equal with any other era in the WWE. The problem is they are all booked to be generic cookie cutter personalities that don't stand out, don't have stories, don't have feuds, and that fans just can't get behind. Add that with horrendous short term chaotic booking and voila... you have this era. Hell, put any of the AE stars so many here love in this exact product and it's still shit!

Rock should come back with Jericho's Save Us gimmick.

Because for the love of god the G.O.A.T. REALLY IS going to save it.

Batista/Randy Orton/Cena/Triple as champions 3 years ago was doing 4.0's regularly. CM Punk as champ = 2.5.-2.7 ..

Compare Punk to those 4 aforementioned guys and you can see why.

Push Orton, Sheamus, Del Rio and Barrett along with Cena as the top guys in the company and the ratings will instantly go up. People want to see men fight, not boys (Punk).

Also, I guess nobody gives a fuck about The Shield except the online marks. Make a brand split and put Ziggler, Bryan, Punk, Ambrose and co. on Smackdown, and the wrestlers the casuals want to see on Raw. That way, Raw will get both the casuals and the internet marks, as they will watch regardless.

Unlike all you geeks, I have real life friends, 8 of whom casually watch wrestling. All of whom were watching from Royal Rumble up to Extreme Rules, while legitimately none of them are watching right now as they all phased out through the year. Reason: all of them are tired of CM Punk. That's enough first-hand evidence for me to know that it's Punk who is killing the show. I think even Big Johnny Laurinaitis was a bigger draw than Punk.

Ryback and Punk fail. Punk is boring as champ. Not his fault really his storylines suck and Ryback is just terrible. If he was over people would tune in to see him beat up Punk but hes not.

I say send both to SD and let them fail there and move Orton/Barrett to Raw in return.

Raw is in dire straights right now, almost everything about the show is boring or just plain bad. I hope the ratings keep getting lower and lower, this product is a disgrace.

The numbers should jump when Rock comes back in around 6 weeks, then it's the road to WM, the post WM bump and by that time the TV pilots and Football season will be over.

If they're still pulling in mid-high 2's when Rock is advertised and they're closer to WM then they have problems.
