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

Someone hire Magnus for WWE and push him to the moon, or at least get Bully Ray for a quick fix so at least the fans at home will get a credible face/heel to cheer/boo for. Still loling at WWE for dismissing A Double for beeing a few inches too short and not hiring him, guess their plans didn't work out well at all.

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

Im surprised that Bryan/Ziggler lost viewers what the hell do these people wanna watch? That match was very good.
As for now bring back Henry and turn R-Truth heel. Here they will have something worthy to watch throughout the show.
Punk is gaining a million and near a million in the last 2 months, more than anything Cena gained in the last 2 year. People also should stop talking about Cenas buyrates its not any higher than Punk, theyre the same have been decreasing every year with or without Cena, only Lesanr & Rock could do it.

A whole lot of people are more interested in the political matters of the US, than wrestling.

Still doesn't change that vanilla roidlets with acne full over his back will make people watch, at least get a guy who actually is bignripped, not some random nerd who has taken a few cycles and still managed to become fat. Sheamus won't get far at all. I wish this generation had their own BPP, not some uncharismatic nerds trying to become Hogan or Goldberg.

No doubt. The Wolfpack still remains one of the greatest things I have seen from Rasslin' TV. They attracted that teens demo like no other with the "cool factor". Besides the fact that it was a group of huge, believable and charismatic superstars, their presentation was perfect. Nobody could have done it that way besides those guys because that's who they really are. The walk to the ring, the sarcastic facial expressions, the "leaning on the ropes" during a promo, the look, the theme, perfect.

The sport just isn't as popular. Ultimately, no amount of change is going to save a dying fad. Something outside the box will have to make wrestling "cool" again. If people have stopped watching, how are they to know that it has changed to begin with? We complain about the industry dying, but we're the ones who still watch. It's the ones that don't watch that need to be brought back, or new viewers brought in. The demand just isn't there.
Unfortunately, I don't think wrestling can become huge again. The Attitude Era is the greatest era ever and it can't be replaced but can't be duplicated either. With stricter rules and more awareness regarding the consequences of blading left & right and taking huge bumps, it was shown that such a thing cannot last very long. Now unless wrestling becomes like the AE again, it will not reach another popular era and is likely going to fade out with its dying popularity while MMA/UFC is on the way in. And we all know another AE wont happen because the wrestlers can't just jump from cells, land on thumbtacks, take chair shots to the head or blade every other week since the effort is more put into stopping deaths at a young age rather than pushing the wrestlers towards the edge.

Boom.
Lol at this thread that is built on walls of text being negated by a few simple words.

It works both ways. If a Punk segment does poorly it's all his fault, forgetting everyone else in the segment. The annoying anti-mark/mark shenanigans in this thread/forum make me want the admins to make the mention of "CM Punk" a bannable offence on the forums

Ratings are the quality of the show, not particularly the people in it most of the time. Sheamus's ratings can be poor, and Punk's failings ratings wise are well documented, yet they draw 1m tonight. Point proven.

^spot on

I hate how people put so much importante in the wrestler "drawing power", when it's already proven that no matter how much a wrestler draws it doesn't help at all if the whole product/storylines/booking is a piece of shit, which it is right now, the blame shouldn't go to any particular wrestler but rather the overall quality of the show, which is obviously, crap
