In the segment-by-segment, the promotion online and through social media that they were opening with C.M. Punk vs. Big
Show led to a 2.60 quarter, the lowest quarter for a Raw episode in months.
Ryback vs. JTG gained 63,000 viewers. R-Truth vs.
Heath Slater gained 186,000 viewers. Sin Cara vs. Tensai lost 105,000 viewers. The Piper’s Pit segment with Chris Jericho,
Dolph Ziggler and The Miz gained 516,000 viewers for the 9 p.m. start. You’d think by four weeks that wouldn’t happen, but it’s
been ten weeks for TNA and it still happens. Jericho vs. Ziggler vs. Miz in a three-way lost 96,000 viewers. Backstage stuff with
Shawn Michaels, John Cena and Punk lost 374,000 viewers. Eve Torres & Beth Phoenix vs. Kaitlyn & Layla gained 45,000
viewers. Cena & Punk vs. Show & Daniel Bryan gained 247,000 viewers to a 2.94 quarter at 10 p.m. Still not good for that time
slot even with Cena. Christian vs. Damien Sandow lost 121,000 viewers. The contract signing with Brock Lesnar, HHH,
Heyman and Michaels gained 431,000 viewers. The parking lot car accident and lights attack lost 394,000 viewers. And the in-
ring angle where Lesnar “broke Michaels’ arm” gained 817,000 viewers to a 3.44 overrun.

That 2.60 quarter hour is NOT the lowest of the year. Have a gander at this:

Memorial Day Raw

Oh and here's another:

Wow, would you look at that. A segment featuring EDGE and JOHN CENA, the WWE's golden boy, drew a 2.50 quarter hour. Why, the 2.60 Punk and Big Show drew looks like Wrestlemania 3 in comparison. And what's that...why I do believe Punk and Jericho drew a 3.63 quarter hour rating, which was one of the best in a while at that point in time. Well what do you know?

Want more facts? Fatal Four Way, the PPV in 2010 drew 143,000 buys. The main event? Sheamus vs Cena vs Edge vs Orton. No PPV Punk has headlined has drawn that low. In fact, the next lowest buyrate I found was Vengeance 2011 with 121,000. The main event? John Cena vs ADR.

So if Punk is this giant ratings drain, how is it that 2 segments featuring John Cena drew even lower than this one with Punk, which you incorrectly claimed was the lowest of the year? And how is it that 2 of the lowest grossing PPVs have been main evented by people all other than Punk, and at times when Punk wasn't even the champion? You obviously follow the ratings to a T. Your logic stipulates that John Cena is actually a ratings drain as well. There's the proof above. At the same time, Punk is not. So in the face of proof, I'm guessing you're still going to dismiss it and claim Punk is this scourge. This means that you're not only blind, but stubborn as well. You're a biased individual who simply doesn't like CM Punk for one reason or another. Thus, you will shun logic and proof that speaks contrary to your opinion in order to prove to yourself more than anyone that you're right. Its actually really pathetic, and makes everything you say come across as nothing more than verbal diarrhea.

Oh and in case you also haven't clued into another fact, the WWE title stopped being given to wrestlers who were proven they could draw a long time ago. Sheamus, Miz...hell, look at Dull Rio's 2 terrible reigns in the fall.
Great post and well said. A post people should read before blindly hating and bursting out the typical "LOL Punk is terrible fire him already" bullshit and actually think a little bit. Nicely done.






best.

Your logic is flawed because in your examples you fail to mention that in Punks segements he lost viewers.....

PLUS who cares about a memorial day raw?
If you want to compare it then compare it to the same raw last year before summerslam. Which got a 3.31 rating.

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

You do know that last year, Punk was also champion the week before Summerslam and the focus of the show. Fact of the matter is that ratings and buyrates are only as good as the WWE title is booked. And right now it's booked like crap so the ratings tank and the buyrate this Sunday will suck. Well maybe not if Brock still draws after 5 months of being wasted.

Uhh, on the go home show for ER his segment GAINED ratings. Do Punk's segments lose viewers? Sure. My point is that every superstar has segments that lose viewers. Blaming all squarely on Punk because he's the champion is completely ridiculous. What is the proof people have? Well they claim his segments always lose ratings. They don't-I just showcased that. They say he's not a draw and that Cena always gets great ratings-well I also disproved that. In a nutshell, I'm just poking gaping holes into the asinine arguments these blind Punk haters always rely on. They don't have the least bit of credibility to them. I also try to point out that if their same logic was to be applied in other circumstances based on the same line of thinking that it would make them look even more stupid.

As for Memorial Day Raw, a rating is a rating...

In regards to Summerslam last year, which as you said got a 3.31, Punk vs Cena was the big match being advertised as the main event. So this even further hurts the anti Punk arguments because 3.31 in this day and age is a decent rating. Were Punk involved, by their logic, the show would have bombed. Why is this year's so much lower? Well, has anyone considered that Big Show might be bringing it down? He's the only difference maker in terms of the match, and correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't he Punk's opponent on Monday? Why does Punk share the burden alone of a segment with bad rating? Was he wrestling himself? No? Then its not ALL his fault. Or perhaps, maybe the build isn't as interesting as last year? Before we had Punk returning after leaving, Triple H as the guest ref and the unification of the World Titles, and we were right in the middle of Summer of Punk, the hottest the industry has been in a while. This year...very business as usual feel. Also doesn't help that the World Title match is kinda being overshadowed by the real main event, Trips vs Lesnar. Punk in total was exposed for about 20 minutes on Monday, what with the tag match, his vignette with Cena and the match with Big Show. Lesnar and Hunter had about 3 recaps (at about 2-3 minutes each), 4-5 backstage segments with Shawn and 35 minutes of the end of the show devoted to it, which equals about 45-50 minutes, almost 2.5 times what Punk got.

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

Too much obsession on Punk, saying he can't draw I don't see the problem of that, he isn't the focus of the show, starting the show with a low number is not a big deal especially that I don't know when was the last time the show started with a match, Cena and Bryan came in later it's not about who can draw, its just means people is not interested on the feud. If you wanna blame Punk, you also should blame Cena and Big show for not adding anything to the match, how can you say that they are big draws as people say but not blame them because they don't have the title, aren't they part of the feud, so if they want to see Cena or Show win the title then people will tune in, but now it's just proves that nobody is interested to see them as champs. People should give it a rest trying to look for the smallest thing to blame him for everything. What will Cena add to the title absolutely nothing, it will just make others look bad.

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

If Punk's segments had done well you better believe his marks would be giving him all the credit. They haven't and now it's everybody's fault but his. Just saying. The double standards are quite ridiculous.

Let's just fire everyone except for John Cena. He's clearly the only one that draws.
