Last year for the Slammy's: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...h-more/113647/

4.493 million and 4.161 million, so in-line with last year. They'll be very happy with that.

Hey, sorry man, I just now saw this post or I would have replied sooner.

It's not that I want them to live that lifestyle, die young or be addicted to narcotics or anything like that. I just want pro-wrestlers to still appear larger-than-life (not in literal size). When they have Twitter accounts & talk about video games & stuff, it humanizes them a lot more & kills the suspension of disbelief for me. Yes, I know this is normal people going to work at their job to earn an income to support themselves financially but I don't want to constantly be beaten over the head with it. I want them to look like they're living a lifestyle that not many people get to live, like a rock star. The partying, the travel, the vices, everything.

Your rock star phrasing is very apt. I want wrestlers to be envied for their lives, like they're big stars & celebrities that people can sort of admire from afar. That kids look up to. No one wants to run into Superman at a grocery store. If these are just normal, everyday guys, just like the common person in the audience, why am I going to pay to watch them? It's a work & a big part of that work, maybe even a lost part of it, is not just the veil of kayfabe (which is gone) but that superstar mystique as well, like a comic book character. It should still be a lifestyle, not just a career. Pro-wrestling is a different beast altogether, it's not "just a job." So when WWE just turned into a First Name // Last Name company that looks like a college classroom full of clean cut frat preps on TV and it is a bunch of nerds talking about video games & shit when not on TV, where the hell is the all-encompassing envelopment into the story? The fans, even the marks have access to Twitter & WWE.com.

John Cena is a guy that wrestles in blue jean shorts, that wears a t-shirt & a baseball cap & tells horribly lame jokes. That is not a pro-wrestler, that is a sober guy in the bleachers at Wrigley Field on a weekday & he has been carrying the company for a decade. Even if he is jacked to the gills, he comes off as normal on television. Who wants to pay for normal?

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

That's great for them. Thankfully in an episode where the ratings killer only made one appearance. Does this one go in the 3s yet or is it still 2.9 at best? Record breaking if the former since they've been in the 2s for months now.

EDIT: 2.89, so not quite there yet!

Huge increase from last week. They got things right with the ppv. Or was it just Flair?

Cena is crap.

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

Think its a mix of being the slammy's, the TLC PPV and possibly Flair. Even though the Raw this week was awful I'm not surprised that the ratings went up.

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

Nice PPV bump... too bad they butchered all the momentum with the worst Raw possible. Next week is going to be brutal... not only did they manage to fuck up their momentum, but it's going to be taped and then taped for the next Raw after that too I believe. I just don't see any heat and excitement coming out of that Raw last night. Most of the energy towards it is completely negative. See if people waste their holidays on it.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

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

Flair is a draw, really? So people are psychic and knew he'd be on RAW? And it had nothing to do with the Award or Cena I guess.

Trips acceptance speech will be the highest rated 5 minutes of Raw since DAT TEAR back in August. Watch it happen.
