Flair brought the viewers. Punk just in the right place, at the right time.

From 97-02, the ratings went up after Mania.
Pretty sure that is not true for 2002, as the name change sent ratings dropping.

Flair wasn't advertized and was a surprise guest host, so how did he bring the viewers if the viewers didn't even know he'd be there?

I thought the exact same thing.

Only thing I could possibly think is that they played his little "woo" before the break in hope that people on twitter would get talking and some extra viewers would tune in because they heard Flair would be on TV, but I doubt it.

Flair was on more than long enough to have it spread that he had returned and get people to tune in. I do credit Flair for the far majority of the reason that segment gained so much. It was the biggest 9PM gain in a while.

Hmmm... Flair's still a big ratings draw, even when unannounced, eh? I'm glad he was able to pull TNA out of the 1s zone.

Oh... wait...

Punk fans are hilarious.

Punk appears in another segment with a legend = Look at that 500k plus gain Punk had!!

Punk appears with a wrestler from this Era = Why the hell did they have to stick Punk with this ratings vacuum?!

I admire your conviction in your God. Still not as devout as us Itachi fans though, but bless your hearts for trying.

Oh yeah and the usual Yata Mirror tanks your argument and Totsuka Sword to blitz, GG.

Obviously Punk is going to gain viewers weekly since he actually gets character/story development in reliable spots with legends that make one-off appearances while Alberto del Rio vs Zack Ryder Part 315081835 will lose viewers because it's a pointless squash match with two lengthy commercial breaks surrounding it.
Solid post.

The way a lot of people are defending Punk's numbers are the kinds of arguments you use to defend a midcard wrestler's impact on the ratings, NOT a 400+ day reigning WWE champion who's getting tons of mic time, and a very large portion of the total story development each week.

This is why Punk needs to be blamed most. It's a fact that's going over a lot of people's heads for some reason. It doesn't matter if his segments don't lose viewers (or many viewers) or even gain a bit after the previous segment tanked in viewership. His segments aren't interesting enough for peple to stick around in anticipation of something exciting happening that they don't want to miss. That's the job of people who are getting most of the air time and significant story development.

Mid-carder ratings logic can only take the argument so far before you just start thinking about how he's just barely keeping his own segments above the falling ratings for the rest of the show. How can you possibly look at that and actually defend it as a good thing? Compared to the first half of the year (rather than the rest of the show each night), Punk's segments are also getting shitty ratings.

Ratings go up - Talk about how Punk can't draw.
Ratings go down - Argue about how Punk can't draw.

Can we rename this the "Punk draw thread" and make a new ratings thread for people to actually view the ratings without having to scroll through pages of the same repeated argument/troll?

I'm not liking this heel Punk. I dunno its so generic and boring. There's no maliciousness in this Punk.
