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

This fucking sucks. The only redeeming quality WWE has these days is to gloat over its asshole ratings, venting a subconscious hope that it'll force change. But when it inches back up it kills even the complaining part. It's like a shit film that is so bad that it can't even be laughed at. Seems to me there are a few stages;

1) Unmissable
2) Good, eager to catch up
3) Not bad
4) Poor
5) Laughable
6) Bad. So bad that speculating is fun
7) Bad. So bad its time to move on

I mean, the late WCW had the redeeming quality of floating between 4, 5 and 6. This, this is just pull-the-plug bad.

Why do people keep talking about Starbuck? Who is that? Is it the third guy from The Shield(not Tyler Black or the blonde dude)?

"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.
Is your mind not capable of rational thought? Must everything debase into "everyone's out to get Punk, must defend Punk"?

The fuck did you expect with the ratings? Instant 4.0's all the time when ratings haven't been that high in consistently in like 7 years? That number is irrelevant. And yes, actually getting back into the 3's will be viewed as a good thing because ratings have been in the 2's for several months.

You're trying to set the bar to a laughably high level that's higher than the show's probably capable of getting back to anymore. That way you can lazily pretend that any ratings increases "aren't a big deal" and "don't prove anything" when Punk's out of the spotlight. . .even though the ratings will visibly have gone up.

2.7 isn't shitty rating, but it's better than 2.2. It's called a positive trend in the right direction, rather than constantly trend downward until it gets into the 1's while people like you still foolishly spin doctor it to make excuses for Punk, or, like in that post, try to muddy the waters with nonsense about ratings from nearly 7 years ago before Punk was even on the Raw roster.


Ratings will go up and stay up for months as soon as The Rock comes back to inform us he's going to take the title off Punk, so long as Punk loses to him and the title stays off him. Watch.

Starbuck can't draw a dime, people have to ask who he is FFS. Vanilla indy midget anti-draw hack.

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

I wonder if roadkill's ready to tell us how exactly 2012 WWE can be "worse than dead."

I also wonder how many ‘haters of current WWE’ here are actually worried about the ratings slump. I'm talking legitimately concerned for the company’s future. Let it be known that there should be no real reason to be worried from their perspective of things. Decreasing interest from those in TV land might mean management will start changing their weekly format around and if not, well, it'll be the company's loss really. With the way some people respond to today's programming, you'd think that they are losing out more by sitting the shows instead of hoping, by some miracle, they'll be threatened with extinction. For instance, I would be quite satisfied if their trump card in The Rock were to perform under their original expectations so they'll drop this silly notion of 'holding out hope’ for ol’ faithful, instead of being proactive with the current roster and formatting problems that are likely to exist.

Let's be honest, what the hell is a part time wrestler/movie star going to do with the main championship? Be entertaining for his fans I suppose, but it's only a temporary solution for the company's existing issues. One of those issues, by the way, will surely grow, as a part-timer walking out champion will continue to undermine everything involved with the immediate roster and product. Old guys like the Rock are temps for helping out current standings. Pro wrestling stars are always going to replace one another for the upcoming generations of fans. If the company can’t build stars from this roster for future proceeds, well, it’ll certainly feel the consequences.

You have nothing to gain from a product that sucks. You only prosper if the company is producing the goods, and they do, in turn, reap the rewards as well. If people are really disenchanted with how things are being run there’s no need to stick by it through ‘loyalty.’ If it runs itself into the ground, does it really matter if it sucked for you? Isn’t it more a case of ‘good riddance to bad rubbish’?

And who sits through three hours worth of stuff they hate anyway?

Even with 2 minutes of airtime Ryback kills ratings. They should call him RyIcantdraw lol.
But if the ratings die within 2 minutes when its Punk, it's everyone else fault for the hour

Punk is not a reliable draw. Simple as.



Thanks Punk
