For all his other matches everybody knew he was going to win. People genuinely didn't know who would win that one though and it was a fresh match. Both of them get the credit as far as I'm concerned along with the intriguing story behind it all.

And you must have missed the part where people were calling Ryback pathetic whilst marking for DAT RATINGS MACHINE CM PUNK. Don't act like there aren't double standards on both sides. Fact is, nobody draws anymore. Cena has the ability to bump numbers when they give him something decent but even he's not making as much of a dent as he used to. 3 hours is killing them.
Well you were covering the double standards on the other side, so I decided to cover the side.

I'm certain Rock316AE wasn't joking, and I'm certain that's the case for a few others at least (I'm sure there were some joking though). But who's to say those marking for Punk drawing and saying Ryback is pathetic aren't joking either? It works both ways on all levels, does it not?

But eh, I'm a mark for Punk, a fan of Ryback, and I'm happy their HIAC buyrate did well and segments/matches involving the two of them seem to be doing well, even if it the gains may be due to Cena/Vince/whoever else is there/whatever other circumstances there are.

I'm watching you...

Punk marks like to act like they don't think ratings are a big deal yet they're in here every week celebrating a big 2.7 lol. I'm onto your GAME you skinnyfats.

It will be interesting to see what Rock is able to do when he eventually turns up. Of course he'll have the benefit of the RTWM but I don't think even he will be able to have a massive impact on things. 3 hours is just too damn long.

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

WWE should bring back Flair, Rock, Austin, Lesnar and a bunch of AE midcarders (Venis, Godfather, Gangrel, BLACKMAN).

That's the ticket.

On second thought, just bring back STEVE BLACKMAN. Fuck the rest.

Guys... Guys... I think it's a little bit unreasonable to solely blame CM Punk for WWE's ratings woes.

LEE J. COBB
Nonsense! HE'S GUILTY! YOU KNOW HE'S GUILTY!

HENRY FONDA
We don't know that! Besides, WWE treated him like he was a lowly midcarder his whole WWE Championship reign until Duh-wayne showed up back in July for that big episode thingamaging thingy.

LEE J. COBB
No! No! You know that kind! You know that they're rotten. That kid, Punk... You're letting him slip through our fingers!

JACK KLUGMAN
Guys, calm down! I think HENRY has a point, but I need to see the quarter hours... I think Punk's guilt is completely dependent on whether or not--

LEE J. COBB
No! NO! FONDA is letting him slip through our fingers and I won't have it!

HENRY FONDA
You sound like you want to be Punk's executioner! You're sick! You're a sadist! You probably liked the Spirit Squad/DX feud! You probably defended Mr. Kennedy's face turn! You probably hated Smackdown in the summer of 2009, you monster!

E.G. MARSHALL
Let's not lose our heads. Let's think rationally. I don't think Punk's helping matters, but FONDA does present a good point that WWE left him disenfranchised for a long, long period of time. You could argue with compelling facts that Punk was, to a major degree, set up to fail. But that doesn't mean he's helping matters, either, because he clearly isn't.

(Starbuck is E.G. MARSHALL.)
Genuinely brilliant.

"..I have a proposition for the jury. One final vote regarding whether or not CM Punk is guilty of being both a ratings sink and a no-draw vanilla midget.

"..Guilty. Guilty. Guilty. The final tally is 42 guilty Vs. 1 not guilty.

"Wait. Something's not right. How on earth did we accumulate 42 guilty votes from 12 jurors?

"IT DOESN'T MATTER, FOREMAN! Take that identical switchblade, turn it sideways.."

"Rock316AE? How did you get on the set? No, you can't be in Network. I don't care who you tweet in Hollywood!"

I AM NOT SKINNYFAT... okay, well... maybe a little...

But as far as Rock's impact goes, I said it awhile ago and I'll say it again, I don't think he'll make a huge splash on the overall rating. This year the highest rating he got for a show leading up to Mania was a 3.3 (night after WM did get a 3.4), and with the last several weeks being under 3.0, something that didn't happen in this time every week in 2011, if the trend remains downwards, I'd say the highest we'd see would be maybe a 3.1/3.2 (also taking into account the show is now 3 hours as opposed to earlier in the year). Of course Rock's segments will do big numbers, but I don't see him bringing the overall numbers up to where they should be for WM time on his own. Same with anyone else, but a combination of Rock, Cena, Lesnar, Taker, and HHH/Austin if one/both of them are there would round out the show and hopefully keep the numbers up throughout (and even then, it depends...)

I'm watching you...

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

Ratings are too inconsistent week in week out to label any one particular superstar a "draw". In my opinion the only real "draws" that entice new people to watch are the part time guys like Rock and Lesnar. Apart from that, we get the same shit week in week out in here. Sheamus lost 350k this week, gained over 1m in a overrun the other week. Pretty much makes RATINGZ and arguments over who made the show gain 0.1 of a rating from the previous week look nonsensical.

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

What's sad... they had a 1 million overrun and probably didn't have anywhere near an actual good number still. Where is a WCW when you need it... this starting to look exactly like the mid nineties, but sadly nothing seems likely to kickstart a resurgence anywhere in wrestling.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace


Raw is like watching Dexter's finale every week... why did I do that to myself for so long?

As expected, no Cena or HoFamers to carry his skinnyfat a**c***k = guaranteed viewership drop for Punk

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


I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
