I think some scapegoated Cena only because he was the poster boy of the biggest problem with the WWE... it was all about Cena and to hell with everything else. Most of us have stopped blaming Cena personally and recognised it's shitty booking and only shitty booking killing this company. Back in 95, I heard it so many times that the roster just couldn't compete and wasn't good enough. Then when the shackles came off, that very same roster was suddenly the hottest damn thing on television. You went from Ringmaster to SCSA... Maiva to the Rock... cowboy and roadie to the New Age Outlaws... blue blood to ass kicking degenerate... Dentist to the Big Red Machine. Really, they had a hell of a lot of talent that was hamstrung by some of the shittiest booking ever. That is the exact same thing happening now. This roster is stacked and this should could be electric... they just need to pull their head out of their ass and book it properly. Could you imagine the midcard fueds? The tag feuds? And the non main event feuds? IT would be must watch TV if they let this roster achieve it's potential!

And while HHH is getting his arm broken and crying during a fake retirement speech no one believes or cares about. Punks trailblazing the business.
Wow. The butthurt is strong in this one. Meh. My favorite wrestlers don't need to hold the title for a year to be relevant and it really doesn't matter to me either. Besides, while Punk 'trailblazes' the business, whatever that means, Trips GNA RUN DA BIZNUS pretty soon. U just be mad bout DAT TEAR meaning more than DAT TITLE RUN ever will. I almost feel bad for you.

Cody's moustache bringing in dem viewers. Steve Austin had one and Punk has a moustache too so that unquestionably means he brings in dem ratings aswell

My logic is bulletproof

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

I think its unfair to blame Punk for the ratings dropping this drastically. Its down to crappy acting, crappy ass promos, and the show is too long. I mean Punk is no mega draw but all the ppv he Main evented between last year and this year went up in buys didnt they? And he has done relatively well in merchandise. So to say he doesnt draw a dime is a bit of an over statement. He draws decent and that is not bad at all. People need to stop comparing the ratings and the talent to the talent of yesteryear. I mean no one is gonna draw like Rock did. Or Austin did. Not even Cena in 06-07. So we just gotta take it for what it is. Punk is an Ok draw and even if he isnt so what? WRESTLING as a product isnt drawing so how can one man be expected to draw? I just dont get it. The show was OK. Nice matches here and there.

This, Wrestling isn't "cool" right now the cool thing right now is MMA. The WWE needs to take notes on how the UFC builds talent.

Back-to-back, double plat', I did what you won't
Men lie, women lie, numbers don't
Ain't nothin changed for, me 'cept the year it is
I think I have to send you a reminder, here it is

Even Jay-Z knows Punk isn't a draw

I think its sad that John Cena couldn't get 4 million people to watch his main event match.

Off your GAME?? I see what you did there
Levesque (lol no wonder he changed his name to HHH, that name would never draw) marks be mad that his legacy will be that he was the guy who married the boss's daughter and got handed everything to him because of it. (even if it isn't true)

That or his failed movie career. "All i want to do is wrestle" yet makes an effort to get cast in shitty Blade sequels and WWE produced movies. Probably married the producers wife just so he can get cast in them.
