No the main event was Rock vs Bossman/Buchanan in a cage. This match happened in the middle of the show. And yes Taka was a sperb worker but he wasn't over at all going in cause he wasn't a regular on TV for almost two years. Clay on the other hand has received a big push this past year.

Sorry for that, you're right in terms of the main event but that isn't really the point. You can't compare Triple H/Taka to Brodus/Punk at all. If you honeslty put Kidd/Punk in the same match (obviously Kidd was injured) and you give them the same length of time they gave HHH/Taka, we'd of seen something very special.

Plus, the company as a whole was drawing at the time. WWE really isn't relevant right now. I don't know how many times this will be said in these type of threads.

Default The argument with ratings.

On one hand, ratings should not matter to us the fans because we are not shareholders in the company or WWE employees in any way.

On the other hand, it makes sense because we as fans use ratings as a benchmark to gauge how well the product is doing as a whole as it should, that's why they're ratings.

I agree with a lot of the rage over shitty ratings, because it's like seeing something you've seen grow and flourish for years like a garden and then taking a flamethrower and torching it to cinders. In regard to the product, this is especially true for me watching Raw because it is just lacking so much and it's disappointing to see more and more people tune out in droves.

Sure, you can blame CM Punk/Cena or what have you, but the fact is that it is painful to watch the show knowing that you sympathize with the people who do tune out the show. Inb4 "Well if you don't like, don't watch it" I watch still, because I'll always hold out hope that it will get better again, just like I did for The Rock returning. I know the vast majority of you do to, and I think you'd be inclined to agree.

HHH/Taka wasn't a squash. HHH was a million times the heel Punk is, meaning people paid money to see HHH lose. People actually thought Taka had a chance to win. Crowd was rabid.

All differences between Taka/HHH and Punk/Clay. Can't believe I had to do that.

So because a segment gained in which CM Punk was in, it's not down to him but The Rock and Ryback. Yet when they lose viewers, it's not because of the likes of Brodus Clay, it is in fact CM Punk.

Shits hilarious.

Totally makes sense.
Well, let's check the data and see...

Punk by himself- gains to 3.17 (after Kofi-Show losing OVER A MILLION goddamn viewers).

Punk with Funkasaurus- loses.

Punk by himself again- gains again.

So what's the catalyst here?

Brodus Clay.

So yes, when Punk's segments gain it's him (or partly him if he's with someone else), and when it loses, it's clearly the other guy. The data here affirms it.

So-

=FAIL. Punk wasn't on his own. He had 400 lbs of talentless fat weighing him down on that one.

When Punk was on his own, those two segments gained. /discussion

That's the whole point I was trying to get across. Hunter drew as champion no matter who the opponent was.

You give Funaki the belt in the Attitude Era and he'd draw. The business was on top. Wrestling was on fire. Do you not understand this?

Weren't plenty of Punk's segments before Christmas sometimes gaining like 500,000 each time?
