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



There are people in this thread who actually believe that Punk not being on the show in a prime role somehow contributed to a rating that is completely equal with all of the other ratings they've been getting lately. Almost like a 2.67 is something to be proud of because they think it proves some ridiculous point despite the mountain of evidence against it.

"DERP HEY GUYS, 2.67 RATING DIS WEEK! MORE PPL LIKE DA SHOW WEN PUNK ISN'T DERE HUR DERP!" Yeah, nothing shameful about a rating that is .19 of a rating point above the lowest in 15 years. Way to shoot for the stars. Soon the show might even be getting the unattainable 2.9s that exist only in legend. This company now lives for the day it can break the 3.0-it'd be like Christ's second coming.

I just...I can't do it...to fathom the stupidity...its impossible for me. And people wonder why the IWC complains about wrestling today-its because a 2.67 is now interpreted as a good rating.

Remember back in the day when Raw used to be able to pull off 4+ weekly? Shit, there was a time when anything in the 4s was considered low in comparison. Now? A fucking 3.0 has become the Holy Grail. Embarrassing. I don't know how you people can fight about this shit. Calling Ryback a better draw than Punk is like saying brown is a more appealing color of shit than green-its still shit, who cares? Punk is shit, Ryback is shit, Cena is shit, nobody can draw to save their lives and its gotten to the point where their big 1000th episode, that they hyped up for MONTHS before hand, drew a whopping 3.43 rating! It used to be when they could hint towards one thing happening the next week and that alone meant 5.0+. Now, they pull out all the stops, throw in everything including the kitchen sink on like...a weekly basis...and you guys are bickering about why a 2.67 rating suddenly proves all these crazy theories you have.

Ratings are in the toilet-that's the bottom line, and those of you who look for this hidden meaning that isn't there...don't get it.

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.
Ur blowing chunks tonight. I expected more from you tbh. Stephanie jokes? Movie jokes? That's all you got? What's next, quad jokes? Well, I don't think we need 3 guesses to figure out where you're getting your material from lol.

Exactly. When me and buddies talk about wrestling, we always end up throwing in a Rock / SC / Hogan / Taker / Foley / HBK / Goldberg / Macho Man tidbit. When someone you know finds out that you watch wrestling arent they like, " STILL"? OMG, so lame. lol. It just isnt that big a deal anymore. I mean my mother used to watch wrestling with me during the AE and shit. Now when she sees me she's just like boy why are you watching that crap? Even if SCSA, Rock, Hogan, Goldberg, came back to WWE the ratings would never reach 8.0+ again.

This is the new, "new generations era ". RE era still had HBK, Taker, Trips, Hogan, Lesnar who were all good to great draws. Since those guys started getting older or leaving it just went downhill from there. Now its Cena and to a much lesser degree Punk ( debatable). There is no genuine interest in wrestling. I think the internet and the focus on entertainment have attributed to this but its just one of those phases. Hopefully we get a new boom period or atleast a period with the level of interest of the RE era which was IMO pretty much as good as the AE in the beginning.

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

The ratings are crappy because the shows have been either bad or at the best mildly entertaining but uneven. To be honest though, the current WWE fan will bend over and like almost anything they are given so I can't say better programming is deserved at this point.

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

It's so sad that we have to look at a 2.7 rating as a big thing. The shows haven't been that bad so they really shouldn't be in that range. I just really dont understand it all.


Chrono's Current Fave 5 (Active stars only):
1. John Cena
2. Dean Ambrose
3. Randy Orton
4. Seth Rollins
5. AJ Lee

Reasonableness isn't over in this thread. That's why I stopped posting reasonably and/or logically a long time ago. Delusion on the other hand? Delusion in running wild, brother!!! :hogan I mean, CM Punk is trailblazing the business!!!
