Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
The SHOWDOWN matters, obviously. The culmination of the story. You build to that. You use the TV to get to that. That's my idea. Instead they use the TV to tread water and then the PPV comes and still nothing was built-up, there's no drama and wins and losses don't matter.
Basically do what UFC does. Because they're doing pro-wrestling better than wrestling is right now. And their 1 million buy PPVs back that up. UFC gets more interest from one push at a weigh-in than WWE gets from six months of TV.
EDIT: Every single match should matter. EVERY match. Even the curtain jerk should have a story. Two guys should never just be slapped together. Especially when it's just "well, this guy is a good guy and that guy is a bad guy, so fuck it, you got seven minutes." THAT is what they need to get away from. THAT is a big reason why they constantly break continuity and why WWE as a whole is filled with complete apathy.
