WWE should just hire Vince Russo and let the ratings man bring the magic back. Vince and Vince were a great team.

Don't worry. We always got Dolph Ziggler and Cody Rhodes!


Sorry, couldn't resist!

The edginess is what drew me and so many people to it, so why they got to take this corny road, I don't know.

It can still be below a 2.5. It depends how many people watched TV on Monday compared to who just watched Raw.

Both would make some good midcard talent but when the company is so low on stars, these two will probably get their shot at main eventing for an amount of time.

At least TNA will have some competition... if they are still intact that is.
Don't know about Moz. When they heavily pushed him, the result was a terrible WM main event last year. He's one of the best on the mic, though.

People say I'm crazy when I predict WWE's downfall being sooner rather than later. But at the rate they are losing viewers, the panic zone may be where they find themselves soon. Some will say "ratings are not important" because that will somehow makes them more optimistic about the future but they are just dodging the problem. With less ratings, there will be less buyrates for PPVs drop, less merch will be sold and who is helping WWE's stock if nobody is watching? Whoever says "ratings don't matter" are just fooling themselves.

This is starting to look like WCW towards the end which is another reason why I have a bad feeling the company is reaching their end.

Because PG still makes them more money overall then they would be making if it wasn't.

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

Now we really dont know when a big raw is coming up because every show is 3 hrs, back when it was 2 hrs and they announced a 3 hr raw they could get a lot of viewers because everyone knew it was going to be a good show. Now its just opposite.

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

The NLCS was a blowout and some folks don't care about Lions/Bears, so the number was probably helped by those factors. But that's still not a number to be celebrating over considering Nitro did better in its worst period for a product.

no doubt, kids get whatever they please.

I was at Survior Series last year in NY and a kid with his dad at the stand got 300 dollars worth of merch all by himself. From shirts, to sin caras arm bands to a big show hat to rey mysterio mask.

They've lost over a half billion since 2010. If this was 2009 when they were still recovering from Benoit I might agree with you.
