They were throwing the belt around like it was nothing in the Attitude Era. You give Funaki the belt for one week, the ratings wouldn't have changed one bit. People tuned in to see The Rock, Stone Cold, Triple H, Mick Foley, The Undertaker regardless.

Really surprised at the breakdown for Rock/Punk, especially this week. A little over 200,000 viewer gain for The Rock Concert that was hyped all night?

While Cena did gain, I just thought it'd be more considering it's Cena and it's a steel cage match.

Props to the divas though... big gain.

It's more to drawing than ratings. Champion has to headline PPVs, house shows and prove he can draw PPV buys and crowds in thousands. Funaki as champion wouldn't hurt for one week sure, but what about 425+ days reign like Punk? He would have killed the company.

During the Attitude Era though, the likes of Austin, The Rock, Taker, HHH would draw in the house shows, the PPV buys etc. I mean lets face it the prestige of the belt in the Attitude Era really wasn't anything special. You honestly put someone of Punks ability in the Attitude Era and give him a lengthy reign, with some of the creativity they had back in the late 90s, allowing him the mic time and start compelling feuds with the likes of HHH, Austin, Rock etc. and you have yourself an even bigger star than you have now, I can bet you that.

Wouldn't say "put the belt on Funaki and he'd draw." WCW tried that with David Arquette and look what happened....

To see Rock and Punk numbers better read the breakdown for the week before.
"The Punk interview before Rock came out did a 3.17 rating"
"The Rock/Punk segment back and forth did a 3.67 quarter rating"

So before Rock came out it was a 3.17 and after he came out it was a 3.67.
To try and imply Rock brought in less viewers then Punk this week even though there was a previous segment where Punk lost viewers is just stupid....
No, I use that expression, because that's what he is. You've seen the crap he posts about Punk... "his 97lb Pizza Hut delivering ass" and these little gems:

His MMA career is still more talked about 6 times over than Punk's whole life.

And Brock's match in Extreme Rules alone pretty much shat on Punk's whole 2012 in-ring catalogue and everything else he had done in the past year.

WWE NEEDS this title change.
Punk-hating, troll - plain and simple.

And just for good measure, here's his view on the Shield and the signing of El Generico:

This will be the death knell of professional wrestling.
So, not just a Punk-hating, troll, but a troll full stop.

All this Punk can't draw talk, although true, is taking away from the good ratings the last two episodes have had. Remember just a few weeks ago when RAW was constantly hovering around 2.7 and we were all wondering if it would hit 2.0 before 3.0? Well, once again the Rock saves the show and raises the ratings to 3.2. Rock = GOAT TV draw

So thats where the title belongs, on Austin/Rock/HHH/Foley etc... who draw. And that's where the title rotated even if it changed hands a bit too much. WWF title is the company's top prize, in year 2000 every ppv ended with the title match. Why would you put that on Funaki? Whats the difference between WWF title and the IC title in your scenario? If Funaki holds the WWF title, what do the main eventers, the big draws fight about?

No offense but the more you post, the more your posts get ridiculously stupid. You should stop now.

And about Punk in the Attitude era, well it wouldn't work. AE was all about larger than life characters, punk would be a jobber at best.

Best.Thread.EVER



... EVER!




I wonder why people care so much about ratings. Is it a bragging rights thing? I know why ratings matter to each individual wrestler but I really can't find myself giving a shit. At least not giving a shit enough to look it up and compare it to what happened 6 years ago.

I'm not putting down those that do and those that are into it this much, btw. So please don't take it like that. I just find this train-wreck of a thread fascinating.

Keep up the good work.
