Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
As someone else said a huge part of the problem is there are no stars right now. On the contrary to what the Punk defence force are saying wwe has done everything they could for Punk to make him a star and it just didn't work. He has had possibly the best year and a half of any wrestler for a long long time. People try and pass it off and say but Cena was ahead of him, which isn't true. After survivor series 2011 Punk started to main event. He main even ted the very next ppv TLC ahead of guys like Triple H. Main even ted the Rumble, other then the rumble itself. At mania he had the 2nd to last match. Rock vs Cena was always going to main event Mania as it was years in the making. That is the match most people wanted to see.
The day after mania Brock came back. Again naturally that would be the main event.
Fast forward to august 2012 and this is where Punk truley became the main focus. He started to main event again and at Night of champions it marked a year of ppv,s where he was undefeated. At the biggest show in decades raw 1000 he was the main guy by taking out the rock and cena. They could of given the ending to anyone who has been with the wwe over the past 20 odd years but they gave it to him. And he has been in the main event since. That is nearly 5 months.
He has gone 377 days as champion.
In 3 days time he will surpass Cena's time as champion. Which will mean he will have had the longest title reign since 1984. It will be the 7th longest reign in history. The 5th individual longest reign.
I can go on and on but there is no need to. Punk has been one of the main things about we for a long long time and is one of the reasons ratings are down. That doesn't mean he is the main reason it means he is simply one of the reasons.
He is not a big star and after everything they have one for him he never will be.
