Yeah, so there's your 540 pages. In one post. You're welcome.
Nah, you missed the parts about John Laurinaitis and The Big Show and AJ and Daniel Bryan, and how Laurinaitis was both responsible for drawing in viewers and for turning viewers off, Big Show being a ratings powerhouse but also underwhelming, AJ and Daniel Bryan being draws and yet not being draws, either, as well as Rock losing viewers, Rock being the biggest star of all time and Rock being the only reason WWE is still alive at this point. And Triple H and Undertaker and Shawn Michaels being mixed together = ratings juggernaut. Oh, and my point that Stephanie = ratings. There ya go.

The Breakdown

Quote:
In the segment-by-segment, R-Truth & Kofi Kingston & Sin Cara vs. Darren Young & Titus O’Neil & Cody Rhodes gained 9,000 viewers. The Ryback squash and backstage stuff with Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler and A.J. gained 198,000 viewers. The Alberto Del Rio interview gained 33,000 viewers. Randy Orton vs. Alberto Del Rio gained 280,000 viewers in the 9 p.m. slot. You’d expect more growth in that segment, but since they started high, they didn’t get it. Damien Sandow vs. Brodus Clay lost 112,000 viewers. The Shawn Michaels interview lost 198,000 viewers. I wouldn’t have expected that. Big Show vs. David Otunga gained 86,000 viewers. Kane & Zack Ryder vs. Daniel Bryan & The Miz plus Cena and C.M. Punk backstage stuff gained 199,000 viewers to a 3.32 quarter for the 10 p.m. slot. So below usual growth for the top of the third hour. The Divas Battle Royal lost 369,000 viewers. Chris Jericho vs. Dolph Ziggler career vs. briefcase lost 30,000 viewers. The final segment with Punk, Cena and Jerry Lawler gained 466,000 viewers and did a 3.36 overrun.
Not much to say except Shawn Michaels can't draw and the Primetime Playas are bigger stars than Brock Lesnar as breakdowns always are accurately truthful to ones drawing power.

Shawn michaels is one of the greatest draws in history, it's just sandows and clays fault for having no drawing power what so ever, so the viewers were leaving during and after there match.

The show opened with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman at a 2.97 rating, significantly higher than usual. In the segment breakdown, the six-man match with R-Truth, Kofi Kingston and Sin Cara vs. Darren Young, Titus O'Neil and Cody Rhodes gained 9,000 viewers. The Ryback squash and backstage segment with Dolph Ziggler and Chris Jericho gained 198,000 viewers. The Alberto Del Rio segment gained 33,000 viewers while Del Rio vs. Randy Orton gained 280,000 viewers in the 9pm timeslot.

Brodus Clay vs. Damien Sandow lost 112,000 viewers and the satellite interview with Shawn Michaels lost 198,000 viewers. David Otunga vs. Big Show gained 86,000 viewers. Kane and Zack Ryder vs. Daniel Bryan and The Miz plus backstage stuff with John Cena and CM Punk gained 199,000 viewers for a 3.32 quarter rating at the 10pm timeslot.

The Divas Battle Royal to name a new #1 contender was the biggest loss of the show with 369,000 viewers. Dolph Ziggler vs. Chris Jericho in Jericho's exit lost 30,000 viewers. The main event segment with Punk, Cena and Jerry Lawler gained 466,000 viewers for a 3.36 overrun rating.
Lesnar and Heyman was a big success, opening with 3.0, I guess when there's a real attraction, it gets people's attention even if it's not in their viewing habit.

Nobody wants to see Michaels as HHH's sidekick, crying about a storyline that 99.99999% of the audience knows is not real. They want to see the legend H-B-K when he's there.

Orton vs Del Rio as I predicted, did the peak of the show.

Big Show is still a TV machine gaining all over the place and his angry promo after losing at Summerslam was awesome.

Cena/Punk promo was the biggest surprise for me, I thought about a 800k gain like Cena usually does there, horrible gain.
