Re: Let's Get Something Clear About The WWE + Ratings

lolwat? Rock,Cena,HHH,taker all are proven draws.

Even Punk is a proven draw (MITB) and occasionally has drawn good ratings. The only one thats miserable is Chris Jericho. The guy is absolute worst when it comes to being a draw. None of the casual fans care about him. It is evident from his return segment which lost viewers after all the hype. Sad really!

I thank the moderators for not merging or deleting the topic.
It doesn't matter. There's like six-hundred mods here. It'll get locked or merged anyway, just because it says the word "ratings" in the thread. That's what they do. And you'll probably get a PM in your in-box telling you that you have an infraction and/or warning too, like that fucking matters.

Meanwhile, you can look forward to about a dozen threads asking about Kelly Kelly or if Kane should retire!

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Reality tv is at its peak right now, so that is not a surprise. Plus it's completely different than wrestling, so the comparison is odd.

Haha, that was very amusing to read. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, also its interesting to take note on how they referred to him as Glenn Jacobs in the title - to possible add more credibility to the question? Even though it was fucking stupid in the first place.

Raged - You're just a very poor troll. You need a pretty signature or at least an avatar if your opinion is going to add spice to the discussion

Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)

Man if it were a 3.7 or up I'm sure we'd have a lot more posts from certain ppl. Just like SS it shows you can't draw when all the focus is on Rock. I wonder if they'll blame someone again. The wrestling industry and tv have changed. If guys like Taker, Austin and Rock never aged and continued to wrestle I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be averaging 4.0's. There's so much tv and wrestling is looked down on so yeah less ppl watch.

I don't care about ratings but I am kinda happy I see numbers like SS had or this past monday or Rocks bday bash. Talk about over rating Cena or Punk but damn Rock on here gets that. He comes out and gets a huge pop talks about his arms and gets a pop and everyone here blows him off. The guy is a legend and that's the kind of reactions Legends tend to get. All the talk about how it was Miz's fault or its always Punks fault it shows Rock can't do it either on his own. Everyone has to work at it. PPl talk about this is the most bland roster lol I laugh because this roster is actually amazing. You have main eventers that when given the time can get 4 or 5 star mnatches. You have a midcard that are loaded with talent. Even freaking jobbers are decent. The only issue is wwe booking. They bury talent and just do amazingly stupid things. Ppl aren't gonna tune in to watch Vince or HHH have Miz looked like a fool or watch Mark Henry who was the best heel of 2011 all of a sudden get buried by Sheamus and then lose a match in under 2 min. Creative simply sucks. Punk, Jericho, Rock and Cena are all that is interesting and in a 2 hour show that won't cut it.

LOl you just mad jericho dont draw. Thats the reason you even made this thread and you are calling me a troll?


Jericho has been a ratings disaster since returning to the WWE. Fans don’t want to watch him talk, so I can’t imagine that they’d be real excited to watch him wrestle.

Re: Let's Get Something Clear About The WWE + Ratings

I've never understood the ratings hype.


It's not like WWE advertises a specific superstar to appear in a specific timeslot. If the 9:00 timeslot has amazing ratings and Jack Swagger just happens to be cutting a promo that doesn't mean he's doing a great job, it just means that's when people decided to turn the show on.

Add the facts that most people stream and DVR these days, and ratings don't mean shit.

Not at all. I find it absurd people are claiming The Rock can't draw when his movies draw over 100 million dollars.

Ratings and reputation have no bearing on Chris Jericho being my favourite wrestler, I thoroughly enjoy watching his antics on television, and I don't let the opinion of others sway my thoughts on him - or anything else for that matter.

Plus, Chris Jericho CAN & HAS drawn before. I'm sure 1 person will buy WrestleMania to see Chris Jericho wrestle CM Punk, so technically he drew at least 1 sale, because I'm buying it to see him.
