People don't even understand ratings. They see the declining ratings, and they also compare today's ratings to 2002 or even as late as 2009. Yet, they fail to realize/understand that TV ratings as a whole are declining rapidly year to year.
RAW's ratings have actually decreased at a lower percentage over the past decade then the "average TV show." The average rating for the Top Rated Show in TV in 2012 is like 21% lower then the Top Rated Show in TV in 2004. Whereas the average RAW 2012 rating is only 16% lower then RAW 2004
People follow the ratings because its a tv show and in the world of tv ratings matter. Though not as much as they use too.People who hate certain wrestlers will use ratings to show that wrestler as doing bad however those exact same people who say ratings dont matter will also use ratings when the numbers work for them.
Its a tv show. Ratings do matter whether people want them to or not.
If isn't ratings it would be crowd reaction, ring or promo ability,politic antics etc. people gonna use them as bullets on the wrestlers they hate even if they have avatars or sig with wrestlers that share the same problem.
So don't lose your time on that, I like ADR and I had to deal with a bunch of smarks hating on him daily so whatever.

Just listen to what the Undertaker said and that sums up everything perfectly. People just need to shut up and enjoy the show instead of complaining about every second of the show every week. Fans have forgotten why they are fans and they are focusing on the negatives instead of the beauty of wrestling.
