I wish Punk marks did the same. Punk never has popped a rating. His supporters would do well to remember that when comparing him to the greats of all time.

Drop in ratings isn't a surprise, nor is it indicative of much besides the loss of The Rock. Ratings were expectedly going to drop after he was no longer around to carry the show, and now it's happening.

I agree completely. That was a fantastic game, at least at the end once the Warriors started to choke and the Spurs finally shook off the rust.

That's not a very good argument man. You're attaching very undue and credit to Punk that has no facts supporting it. Punk was getting all time low ratings the longer his push went. Ratings dropped significantly and stayed there every single time he retained his title at a PPV until The Rock came back. Look at the ratings list, that's the pattern.

Punk would not help the ratings now, he would only hurt them. If they were dropping that much with the title on him, exactly how would him being on the show and god forbid already be going for the title already help at all? Even less people would be watching. Fans would be faced with a choice of Cena or a guy who is arguably even worse than Cena.

When faced with such a shitty choice, people aren't going to stick around. That would only keep around drama queen Punk marks. . . which based on the ratings aren't very many people. More people are still watching than they did during Punk's reign post-Rock/Lesnar. And that's despite them choking out interest in most angles with The Shield being ram-rodded into them and being forced over everyone, and them bastardizing their most over wrestler (after Punk and Cena) by turning him heel for no reason rather than try to work angles with him as a face.

Time to change the champion. Go in a new direction, perhaps? Someone alittle more fresh, maybe?

Everytime John Cena cuts a terribly cheesy promo on Raw (like to open the show this week) alittle bit of the company's illustrious history dies alittle bit.

On second thought, color me shocked that the Cena opening cheesy promo didn't help lure the audience in the for the night. How could that not happen?

That is all this forum really is. Half the threads are about people who are not even on the show every week.

We all know CM Punk drew poor ratings. People obviously wanted to see Cena and the like more than they did Punk, but that was over a year ago. Ever since his heel turn and feud with The Rock, he's been gaining good numbers.

It was the first time people had seen a top babyface WWE champion who wasn't John Cena in a long time, fans were skeptical, but he's proven himself since then and he's grown at a steady pace.

Nobody on the main roster working below main event level would draw big numbers, so picking on Punk is utterly pointless. Think of any mid-carder right now, and honestly tell me they'd do better than 2.3 (or whatever it was) if put into the main event scene and given a run with the WWE title.

How the hell do people expect Punk to improve ratings when he's a heel? Was Stone Cold a ratings magnet when he was feuding with Bret Hart, or when he was the Ringmaster? Aww Hell NO. Punk was there to put the babyface over (Cena, Ryback, Rock, Undertaker). If you're gonna blame the ratings on somebody, blame the superstars WWE pushes the fans to get behind.

Not to mention Cena was the main event during Punk's entire title reign, therefore if you want to put the blame for the ratings during that time period on any individual it would be him. And when Punk finally started main eventing instead of Cena, the numbers improved a lot. And yes, I know that that coincided with the Rock returning.

Are people forgetting that CM Punk and Ryback were the two guys that consistently gained viewers in their segments during the second half of 2012? Both of them did it in all different time slots as well. The blame should never be put on one wrestler. We live in a world where even The Rock can't bring in these incredibly high standards people have for ratings.
