Oh look, the "all Punk can do is shoot" response. Do people get off on speaking so much mis-information in this thread? Any time I come in here someone's spouting some fallacy.

That should be interesting, but what I'm really interested in seeing is the number for the fallout show. Last year they got a 3.55, which I think was the second highest rating of the year, with over 5 million viewers on average, so it'll be interesting to see if Rock winning the title could push them even past that, which had Laurinaitis' job in HHH's hand and Taker's return.

I'm watching you...

The Attitude Era's main guy Stone Cold Steve Austin was 6'2. Hardly a massive individual. Whether you thought he was "intimidating" or not is your opinion but in any case the height argument is such a fallacy when guys like HBK, Bret Hart and Austin were all the top guy at one stage and none of them were over 6'2. Which is not a massive height in the wrestling world. Hell if you want to take it further, Ric Flair is 6'1 and was the NWA's biggest draw for years. The height argument alone is complete rubbish.

As for the "CM Punk shoots in every promo" argument well that is wrong and deep down you know it. Either that or you haven't been watching the show because aside from his recent "pipebomb" Punk hasn't done any "shoot" promos in a long while.

Last Monday’s edition of Raw saw the Divas Championship match between Eve Torres and Kaitlyn post the greatest viewership gains of the night, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The match, which was Eve’s final WWE match and featured Kaitlyn winning the Divas Title in her hometown of Houston, Texas, was part of the segment that gained 509,000 viewers, the night’s biggest gain in viewership. Its quarter of the show had a 3.33 rating.

The stats are even more impressive when compared to The Rock’s big closing segment, which only gained 207,000 viewers.

This news could serve as a sign that, much like fans of TNA’s Knockouts, WWE fans are specifically tuning in for the Divas.

RELATED: In Video: Eve Torres Addresses WWE Departure

Also on the topic of the Eve/Kaitlyn match, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is also reporting that Monday’s match was originally scheduled to take place at the Royal Rumble.

The report states that it was Eve who convinced officials to make the switch, as she felt that it would be better if her final night and Kaitlyn’s big title win took place in Kaitlyn’s hometown of Houston.
Sorry if it was posted already.

Really? Foley, HBK, and Jericho were intimidating because of their size? Who knew being the same size as Punk made them bigger than Punk? Or in Foley's case, weighing more than Punk turns all that fat into muscle?

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Seriously a 15 minute overrun (with the ROCK) gains 200k and all you are bitching about Punk?

FYI just because you post in this thread it does not make you a smark

This is why he gets no reaction. Vince is pissed, I heard next show on Raw the reason Punk is not going to show up is because he's been assigned hotdog duty in the stands. I heard he's "the best in the world" at that.

It's not about height, it's about physique, presence, and looking like a star.

Come on guys, is it that hard to tell the difference?
