Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
As I said to that Punk nut hugger when Raw was on last night. WWE has catered to guys like that for far to long and the product now is showing the fruits of that.
I think you would have to be a mental case to think RAW and WWE in general is any good right now. Last night we had Punk telling JR to leave the ring, then pulled him back. A couple of people were saying how great that was. Well thats cool that you think thats great but in the real world thats called nothing happening. And this nothing happening has been going on for ages. People are tired of the product and would much rather watch something else. The worst rating in 15 years is not a coincidence. The rating reflects the quality of the show, which was pure garbage.
The PG era has not worked and will not work.
In my opinion I think WWE needs to create a new show to appeal to the older generation. They can keep RAW and Smackdown for the kids but have a new show that is more hardcore, more adult orientated. You can keep guys like Cena and Punk off there but the other guys who get little air time and generally nobody cares about should be on there. Mixed in with new guys coming through.
Do not have just one guy be the man, make everyone equal. We need gimmicks, we need characters and we need a reason to give a shit.
