Re: Monday Night Raw has been this weak for how long?
For a while. The last few years have been similar to the mid 90s, but only with better in-ring talent (which makes the bad booking even more frustrating) and a better financial situation. Cena's very stale like Hogan was in the 90s until he turned heel (hopefully he DOES turn heel at WM but I doubt it), the shows are very formulaic and scripted to the bone, and they've missed the boat with so many good talents for some of the pettiest things (MVP, Kennedy, Carlito, Morrison, etc.). Punk's the only real star they've made since Cena, Batista, Edge, and Orton... this past WM build, which resulted in a mediocre/bad OLD SCHOOL RAW, is also one of the worst of all time, which is saying something because 2011's, 2008's, and 2006's had their share of bad shows. It's starting to make 2005 and before look like the Attitude era...
