That's what I said last week:

Lol @ Orton. But the Rumble winner segment was the first, so maybe I was right...

Below 5 million for this show is not a disappointment, it's a panic mode for them.

100% agreed. They had their time to stay below 5 million heading into the Rumble. That wasn't good at all but I think they'd let it slide all things considered. From here on out though they really ought to be pulling in those RTWM numbers otherwise panic mode would be an understatement imo.

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

Well, I've got my fingers crossed, that's for sure. I don't know though... some people may not tune in until after Elimination Chamber when that's where the strongest build up for Mania takes place. I'm not saying below 5 million is good, but I think it'd be somewhat excusable if they didn't break that until after EC.

However, with the whole Taker/HHH stuff that just went down, ratings should at the very least keep rising week after week until then and be at that 5 million plus mark come 2/20/12. If not then that is a really bad signs when the two biggest legends that will from the looks of it be active on the show until at least Mania every week can't draw in those big numbers. Especially since it seems like they'll actually try to string a storyline this time around it that has potential to be a hot one.

And this is all not considering the fact as well that Rock and Cena's feud will more than likely be put into fourth gear going into Mania. Even if Rock is only live on Raw a couple of weeks, he should still at least do satellite promos to keep the feud hot instead of giving Cena all the work when he's not there.

I think the WM buyrate from the looks of things now has potential to be the biggest WM buyrate of all time (which I only assume would be the biggest for WWE of all time), but we'll see what happens. If Rock/Cena, Taker/HHH, and Punk/Jericho live up to their storyline/feud potentials, then there's no reason it shouldn't have over a million buys.

I'm watching you...

Don't worry. You are not alone. I think everyone here feels and thinks that way sometimes. This is why ratings are important. WWE isn't booking a show to specifically suit you. They aim to book a show to appease the largest possible audience. Now you might say that is cause for the dumbing down of some aspects of it and you're right. It still doesn't change the fact that guys like Goldberg was able to captivate the hearts of more people than the ROH veterans we have today. Ratings, when used in proper context, are the best objective argument anyone could make when arguing about who WWE should push.

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

Taker/HHH is obviously a bigger deal for wrestling fans, but the second most important match for the buyrate is Shaq/Show, with the right direction for the big 3(Rock/Cena, Shaq/Show, Taker/HHH)especially for Rock's match with Cena, this has the potential to do bigger than Trump/Vince.

I'm not considering Shaq/Show until something starts between them (not counting what they did a year or two ago). Shaq/Show would obviously be top 3 in big matches on the card... I don't know if I'd put it above Taker/HHH, but I can see why you would considering Shaq would draw in people not into wrestling, and get them to watch the show.

Edit: Although reading back your post, that's basically what you said. <_<

I'm watching you...

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

I think Shaq/Show does have a great probability to outdraw HHH/Taker. Shaq working the late night shows, doing interviews on ESPN and dropping WWE plugs on NBA halftime show would spread the word of Wrestlemania. I'd honestly rather see Shaq/Barkley instead of Shaq/Show. Seeing them bicker and throw some jabs at each other during the show makes me believe there is legitimate heat between them

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

Shaq is huge name worldwide, He can bring a lot of fans and with Show, even if they had never heard of him, the image and their size is enough to sell the match. Of course you need to build this type of a match as a real fight or something like that, not the regular pro wrestling feud, gym segments etc, just like the Floyd feud which was the selling point of WM24 and a big success.

If Raw didn't do better than a 3.3 rating last night with the return of HHH and Taker...Vince should be worried.
