Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread [Post All TV Ratings Discussions Here]
Punk's solo promo drew more than the opening segment with Heyman, Vince, Lesnar and HHH? Isolated incidents don't mean that much but since his segments have been among the highest rated for a long time it shows that people have caught on to the quality he brings, something that likely escalated when he feuded with The Rock. Hopefully WWE has the presence of mind to capitalize further on it with good booking.
Also great to see that Punk vs Cena did so great, and both wrestlers certainly did what they could to deserve it.
SHIELD also did well with their promo, even better than Cena's, which is promising. It shows that good booking does a lot (although there's of course tons of talent in that group as well).
Ratings mean nothing to what I like but it's nice to see that things I like can be popular, which helps make those things more high profile.
