RYBACK putting him through a table accounted for 450/500k increase if I can be honest for a moment.

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

Ofcourse the viewership increased. This was the first time in three whole months Punk wasn't part of the Main event or overrun. They actually promoted a proven draw with Cena and Big show this time instead of that overrated, overpushed, boring, miserable mid card champion and there you have the right results.

When was the last time Punk wasn't promoted for the RAW Main event/Overrun? I think it was September 3rd episode with Cena/Del Rio main event iirc?

This clearly proves casuals don't give a single fuck about this guy, not even when he is legit injured. Possibly the worst WWE champion in history.

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

Last nights Raw was brilliant. Showed that they intend to start improving the product. Some very risky stuff as well that stirred the crowd and that you wouldn't have got a few years ago. Plenty of weapon shots, Big Show being racist towards Sheamus, Khali and Vicky segment, Cesaro's mic work and the Miz renaming Rhodes Scholars "the pink and the stink" (which means vagina and anus btw)

Top stuff.

TOP 5 ALL TIME

1. HBK
2. Austin
3. Rock
4. Y2J
5. CM Punk

FAV 5 ALL TIME

1. Billy Gunn
2. Y2J
3. CM Punk
4. HBK
5. Austin

This... Punk was hotter than Ryback could dream last year around MitB. Then nothing as a whole changed with WWE and he was relegated to being HHH's bitch and a midcard WWE champion for most of his reign. I'll call it now... you put the belt on Ryback and within months, people will be wondering why they gave it to him. He can't wrestle, he can't speak... the WWE is doing it right now by leaving him to do 2 minute run ins where he can't stink up the joint. The moment he gets more time, the crowd won't be so hot to say the least.

And really... being over really doesn't seem to mean much. You had crowds chanting Punk's name. You had crowds erupting in Yes! for Bryan. You've had guys like Ziggler and Ryder either sneak into getting ovations for short bursts or staying relevant for longer. None of that has drastically improved anything. For crying out loud... you have a heel champion with a face chasing for the title and it isn't improving shit. As much as some want to blame Punk only... you have to look at who's chasing him too. Most wrestling fans are looking at it and going "well, Punk wins and he gets jobbed to the Rock for Rock/Cena II or Ryback wins and we get... whatever mosntrousity that would be.... yipee.............". It's a dead feud no matter how you look at it. And that is the problem... there are too many dead feuds because either outcome is just boring or because everyone knows that if you lose, it doesn't matter... it will have no affect on your title shots. SO people just start tuning out because nothing happens at all.

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?

Triple H's Tear = 5+ million

Hunter's tear > Punk's entire reign > Ryback

Your case is

If Ryback is such a monster drawing face why aren't people tuning in to see him chase Punk for the belt?

If Punk is such a monster drawing heel why aren't people tuning in to see him at all?

Because even an idiot knows that Punk will not drop the belt until the Royal Rumble at least.

Your case is
When HHH hits someone with a pedigree he says "You've been buried bitch"

That would be a great t-shirt.
