Big difference between a realistic and hopeful prediction. There's no magic formula on TV, it's all about a pattern. If you put a Ferrari in the middle of 100 Fiats, it wouldn't create 101 Ferraris.

Technically they're the same.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

I fully expect the Rock to bump the ratings back in the 3. something range, if only for the fact that his return was marked with a nicely done promo package to let everyone know that this isn't going to be your typical throwaway show. The advertised WWE title match alone should get a few more eyeballs to tune in.

Even the Rock is not going to save a poorly written show, so they can't half-ass his return angle like they did with the build up to Survivor Series 2011. If that's the case, people will only tune into the segment that's showcasing the aforementioned Ferrari, and won't bother with everything else which will hurt the overall bottom line.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

So if ratings remain the same over the next couple months, are the mega Rock marks gonna react similar to a Christian discovering there is no God? The forum will be filled with broken men.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

Another thing you have to consider is Rock's Twitter as a promotion tool. Alot of on and off and non-wrestling fans follow him. If he's hyping up his return on that website, it might be just as important a factor to consider as that RAW promo they shot since a sizable portion of that group might tune-in out of curiousity.

Rock's advertised returns have always made decent to good numbers since 2011, if the Rock appears regularly on RAW, then some people eventually skip a show or two, but that always happens when the novelty of anything wears off. This will mark his first appearance since RAW 1000th, so it's a big deal that people will be interested in.

The ratings weren't that impressive last year on the RTWM so they should be use it by now.

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

If the rating is really good - Rock gets the praise

If the rating is bad - Punk gets the blame.

If the ratings are below 2.8/2.9, get ready for "DA GOAT CAN'T DRAW LOLZ".

Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013

To be completely honest, at this point it would be the WWE that isn't drawing. I'm certainly not the Rock's biggest fan on this website, but the man is one of the biggest names in Hollywood, and perhaps even the biggest wrestling name that's still active on a part-time basis. If the WWE's lack of foresight to utilize a guy like that properly gets them shit numbers, then they more than deserve the blame.

The Rock proved that he's a draw, and he's still a ways away from being over the hill as an overall performer.
