Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread [Post All TV Ratings Discussions Here]
If the average WWE viewer knew punk was going to win the four way on RAW, then I'm fairly certain he'd already know the result of the match. Besides like Rock316AE mentioned this year, the build isn't even about the streak. It's all about the Urn. Taker/Punk is a distant #3 for sure.
@Deso- Don't really have anything to say that I haven't, and for the record I don't majorly disagree with anybody saying Lesnar/HHH is the number 2 biggest match on the card (on paper, it should easily be in terms of overall star power compared to Taker/Punk). The rest of the stuff though either you agree with it or you don't. I can agree though on wanting Taker/Lesnar and Punk/HHH over what we got. However something else you brought up I want to discuss, you mentioning how the WHC match is the 4th biggest match... I actually think The Shield match is bigger. Seems to get more promotion, has a lot more starpower, and overall has a bigger match feel to it than the WHC match. The World Title in general has meant shit for 2-3 years now, but especially this year it seems to have hit a new low.
May just me though.
This might come as a surprise but.....I'm inclined to agree with you on this score lol. I'd say The Shield match is either equal to or slightly above the WHC match in terms of importance/hype.
As far as this weeks rating goes, I reckon they'll do slightly above what they did last week because they didn't bother to advertise that any of these guys are going to be there. We'll see. Maybe if they announce some actual segments of what they're going to be doing, maybe that will help.
Let's put it like this: If they can't get an average 4.0 rating with Rock, Cena, Triple H, Lesnar, Taker and Punk, they might never ever get one again.
if they advertised and built to rock and cena wwe title match for 2 weeks i think it would break a 4
a 4 today would be seriously impressive and over 6.5 million average over 3hrs
