Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
You can't say the fans aren't there because Raw 1000 was proof of this. The ratings were getting higher and higher as the night progressed. It is just that the WWE has pissed off the majority of their fans with their terrible booking, horrible characters, and god awful story lines all year long. Now they are paying the price for not delivering Austin and all of the legends that people wanted to see on the 20th Anniversary show. People were legit pissed on social media.
But the main problem is that nobody cares about these new stars. And to make matters worse every time a legend comes back to feud with these guys the WWE always has to make them appear as equals when they are not. Fans hate that. How are we supposed to believe that Rock, HHH, HBK, Lesnar, Undertaker, Jericho, Foley, and Austin are equal to anyone on this roster, when as soon as they show up they get put into the main event without doing anything, and the current people with the 2 main titles are at best in the 3rd to 4th match on the card?
The only way anyone from this Era is getting put over big time is if they do an Attitude Era vs PG Era program that lasts one year. From the night after Wrestlemania to the following Wrestlemania. It is a relatively simple story line for them to do even with their limited availability dates. But more importantly, how the hell do you come out with a game promoting this but not actually do a storyline with it? Which further proves Vince has lost it.
If you do the feud though, no holding legends back, no scripted promos, no dumb story lines, no terrible filler. Let the legends be the heels because they know what it takes to get booed. Anyone thinking that these guys couldn't get booed is delusional. Just have them bring up all of the complaints with this Era that everyone has been saying for the longest time. And actually the split crowd reactions would be appropriate because in this program you would be asking people to take sides. People would watch that. What people won't watch, is their favorites coming back to be watered down into nothing more than shells of their former selves and unfortunately that is all that has been happening lately.
