Next week on Raw a mega main event has been announced!

Fatal 4-Way Ironman Match:

Triple H's tear vs The Rock's $1000 shirt vs Stone Cold's empty beer can vs Undertaker's hat = massive ratings!!!

DAT TEAR vs. DAT SHIRT vs. DAT BEER vs. DAT HAT =

I'd watch lol.

Horrible breakdowns as expected. Now 9pm and 10pm are starting to blow chunks and they're supposed to be the holding positions of the show. Lulz.

You can't just have random matches on RAW for no reason & expect the matches being good to be enough of a reason to make people care. There's no heat, emotion or story & every single match has bad commentary & a mid-match commercial break. Plus, it doesn't even matter who wins.

Although the wrestling in WWE nowadays is actually really good it is sadly the thing that matters the least.

As an example, why is John Cena (babyface) wrestling Dolph Ziggler (heel) on the TLC Pay-Per-View (for $50) when John Cena (the GOOD GUY) has already beaten Dolph Ziggler (the BAD GUY) twice, for free, on TV, clean?? The bad guy/heel is not getting any come uppance, the good guy/babyface is not getting any revenge. It is a story with no arch or even a middle. It was over when it started because the good guy thwarted the villain in the beginning.

WWE TV is just FULL of shit like that, so no one gives a fuck about the matches & they can just turn to football instead.

Poor writing, poor storytelling, no drama, no intensity and the product is too sanitized. Everything suffers at that point.

Oh, I know. It just makes me hyperaware of how far outside the (apparent) target demographic I am when those matches haemhorrage viewers, and Del Rio vs Khali draws huge.

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

The reasons why viewers tune out of most matches on RAW is because 99% of them don't mean anything. They are thrown together without heat. Look at Ryback Vs Brad for example. It drew really well and that's because it had a meaning and something was on the line. Now, not every match can have something one the line. But that's the main reason matches don't really draw on RAW.

Nah it's cause Rydraw was involved in a slot that isn't predestined to always lose viewers
