Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread [Post All TV Ratings Discussions Here]

Considering Punk wasn't closing shows or even opening them most of the time while he was champion throughout 2012 I think blaming him for the overall rating of the show is unfair.

He did consistent gains for the night in his segments too, it's just a shame the rest of the product was utter shit and was doing dives around him. He and Ryback salvaged the ratings to average out to what they are...

Also: RATINGZ!

Re: How low do ratings have to go until something big changes? And what to do?

i personally dont think they care that much as long as they sell merch and full up arenas they'll continue in this vein. the only thing that would make the wwe change for the better is competition, e.g. tna becomes huge and are getting more viewers than them. Which unfortunately wont happen, too many kids love the product now.

Pretty much this. Vince won't do a thing unless he feels threatened and backed into a corner. As of today, there really isn't anyone in the wrestling world that can touch him or his company. TNA can't do it, they don't have the almost unlimited funding that Ted Turner provided to WCW to snipe talent out from under Vince's hands.

The arenas are still filling up, merch is still being bought by the truckload I imagine, so there really isn't anything to shake the WWE out of its torpor that its gotten into due to having no dangerous competition for over a decade.

To the point of negative financial effects. But there are so many WWE sheep that they will rake in the merch and ppv buys to keep them going until... whenever.

The lower rating was likely expected, they would have to lose a significant amount of viewers to even be alarmed. Even then I don't know that it would matter, as long as they're one of the top shows during their time slot, and USA Network is happy they probably don't care.

What to do?They need to do something new and fresh and what's most important CREATIVE and SURPRISING.Then people will start to give a damn about what's going on.Make some young talent wwe champion Cody Rhodes or someone from The Shield for example.Make some controversial segments,angles like this with Brock destroying HHH's office.And for fucksake get rid of this goddamn dance!This is world WRESTLING entertainment not world dancing entertainment.
