Facepalm* Yes, CYNICAL'S comparison IS valid, because he was not freakin' comparing the RAW 1000 to this past Monday, he was comparing this past Monday to Rock & Cena's fued to WM. Cynical didn't even mention RAW 1000.

So once again, Cynical's context for comparison was indeed valid.

It was Amuroray who said that wasn't fair because it was not fair to compare this past Monday to Cena-Rock's RTWM, but rather when Cena & Rock first met.

I merely pointed out that this past Monday was not the first time Rock and CM Punk met either. So Amuro's ad hoc stipulation was exactly that, just an ad hoc.

That's it. That was the whole point of even mentioning RAW 1000. Period.

Trying to hash out who had the drawing power at RAW 1000 or whatever else is just you guys losing focus and trailing off onto your own little thing.

ADD ftw I guess.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Wrestling in the UK
- In 2012, WWE Raw averaged 160,000 (9.2%) for live airings and 38,000 (0.3%) for its first repeat, a total of 198,000 viewers per week. Unsurprisingly, the highest rating was for Raw 1000, which had 357,000 (15.1%), peaking with 479,000 (20.2%) for the return of The Rock. This is an increase on the 2011 average of 174,000 viewers.
- In 2012, WWE SmackDown averaged 104,000 viewers for first run airings. This is down on the 2011 average of 116,000 viewers.
- In 2012, TNA Impact averaged 199,000 viewers for first run airings.

Note that all ratings include anyone who watched that airing within 7 days (so no, 160,000 did not sit up to 2am and watched Raw live, they merely recorded it overnight to watch later)

Damn, WWE don't get many viewers in the UK these days. It would be interesting to see what the viewership figures in the UK were like during the attitude era.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Rock really proving that he is the biggest box office draw in the history of the business. Sad thing is that the 5 million plus numbers will probably leave when The Rock does.

The WWE is on the premium TV package in the UK, everyone I know that watches it watches it on the internet. And it's not unpopular, the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania will be events for two of the pubs within walking distance where I live and they're both normally packed on these nights.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Do ratings help to decide a Wrestler can draw or he is over with the fans ?

It's human nature. Never satisfied.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Technically speaking, if you're drawing you're over.

To a certain extent. But actually, MONEY helps decide whether a Wrestler is a draw. How much money does he or she make for the company. Television rating has its limitations, especially in the internet age.

This is one reason why I think often critics go too far in the comparison to ratings under Punk and ratings under Diesel/Nash. When Nash earned the nickname "lowest drawing WWE champ in history" it wasn't just that TV ratings were down. Also, house show attendance was down, with arenas being half full, sometimes less, merch sales were down, PPV buys were down. Business all around was down. (To be fair, much of that was not Nash's fault, but problems he inherited from the previous generation, fallout from the steroid trials, top talents leaving to WCW, etc.)

But under Punk's reign, business is not anywhere near what it was under Nash (even when accounting for inflation), in fact, business isn't down at all under Punk. I think that's what many critics of Cena & Orton miss as well. TV ratings have been consistently going down for the past 6 years annually, yet many of us were mind-boggled as to why Vince kept keeping the belt on Cena.

Because Cena makes money. Without money, ratings don't mean shit. That's one reason why Stacker 2 dropped WWE as a sponsor. Yes, ratings were high at the time, but Stacker was not seeing an increase in sales after airing ads on WWE.

Same with being over with the crowd. Doesn't mean much if they won't pay to see you at house shows or buy your merchandise and PPVs.

What WWE wants wrestlers to draw are $ signs, not Nielson points. Ratings are just one aspect of measurement, and that by itself is not reliable data.

No it's money. People on here put way too much stock in the ratings. Ratings are used for to see if sponsors what to put their ads on a particular TV show. What makes WWE money are PPV buys, live event attendance, and merchandising. Ratings are a help, but they aren't the end all be all that people in the IWC claim to be.

I'm for as many people getting over as possible, it would improve the show and the more over people there are, the more avenues there are to push new talent, yes, your favourites are more likely to get pushed if there are more over people to feud with.
