Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
The matter of segment breakdowns is just the final piece of evidence in the argument that Santino Marella is in desperate need of a heel turn. His comedic babyface character has run almost completely out of steam, and this current storyline with "The Cobra," while cute at first, is becoming more grating and less amusing as it goes along. They got 3-1/2 years out of this face run, and for the most part it's been fun/enjoyable for what it is but the character has lost a great deal of luster. When he comes out now, it feels like crowds and apparenatly viewers react with a nominal, "Oh, Santino," reaction these days. Ironic how the United States Championship reign, which should have been a promotion, feels like the period of time in which he grew staler and staler, as well as more superfluous to the product at large.
He needs a somewhat inventive heel turn, with a fresh character modification, like R-Truth in the spring of 2011.
