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

I wonder if roadkill's ready to tell us how exactly 2012 WWE can be "worse than dead."

I also wonder how many ‘haters of current WWE’ here are actually worried about the ratings slump. I'm talking legitimately concerned for the company’s future. Let it be known that there should be no real reason to be worried from their perspective of things. Decreasing interest from those in TV land might mean management will start changing their weekly format around and if not, well, it'll be the company's loss really. With the way some people respond to today's programming, you'd think that they are losing out more by sitting the shows instead of hoping, by some miracle, they'll be threatened with extinction. For instance, I would be quite satisfied if their trump card in The Rock were to perform under their original expectations so they'll drop this silly notion of 'holding out hope’ for ol’ faithful, instead of being proactive with the current roster and formatting problems that are likely to exist.

Let's be honest, what the hell is a part time wrestler/movie star going to do with the main championship? Be entertaining for his fans I suppose, but it's only a temporary solution for the company's existing issues. One of those issues, by the way, will surely grow, as a part-timer walking out champion will continue to undermine everything involved with the immediate roster and product. Old guys like the Rock are temps for helping out current standings. Pro wrestling stars are always going to replace one another for the upcoming generations of fans. If the company can’t build stars from this roster for future proceeds, well, it’ll certainly feel the consequences.

You have nothing to gain from a product that sucks. You only prosper if the company is producing the goods, and they do, in turn, reap the rewards as well. If people are really disenchanted with how things are being run there’s no need to stick by it through ‘loyalty.’ If it runs itself into the ground, does it really matter if it sucked for you? Isn’t it more a case of ‘good riddance to bad rubbish’?

And who sits through three hours worth of stuff they hate anyway?

Even with 2 minutes of airtime Ryback kills ratings. They should call him RyIcantdraw lol.
But if the ratings die within 2 minutes when its Punk, it's everyone else fault for the hour

Son, you just described yourself.


Punk is not a reliable draw. Simple as.



Thanks Punk

Why do people abuse meth despite what it does? It's an addiction... we are hardcore fans that it takes a lot for us to stop watching 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?

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

Damn, trollamania is runnin' wild tonight!

As far as the numbers, they mean nothing as for Punk being a draw or not. SVS and NOC as well had stronger go-home shows than the previous week's respective show. Punk being injured and not on the show much had virtually nothing to do with the increase. Same with him being the segway into the second hour probably had nothing to do with that being the highest number of the night (it really depends on how well his segment did, but he only had 3-4 minutes in the second hour, so it's debatebul either way).

Still a terrible number regardless, and if it shows anything, it shows Cena and even McMahon advertised can't save the overall show. Also apparently outside circumstances regarding MNF from what I'm seeing actually potentially helped Raw's rating. Just something to think about.

I'm watching you...

Well, expect more of your time being wasted as the current product benefits from your contribution then. Perhaps these fans are a glutton for punishment after all?

In fact, if some people on this forum are willing to put up with all the lows being presented for the sake of being loyal to...whoever, then I don't see a need why they'd need to complain about anything. Why vent if they still persist with what they call "terrible", despite knowing full well what will be churned out on a weekly basis?

No, Starbuck's the guy who climbs down your chimney on Christmas Eve, drinks your beer, shits in your stocking and then pedigrees you when you cry about it.

You shouldn't even open your mouth. You come to this thread regularly just so you can leave some stupid remark about me. That's literally all you ever do in here. You clearly have have an obsession with me. Oh and I "just wait for Tuesday"? Have you been following me around outside of the computer screen? If yes, that takes obsession to a whole new level.

Punk marks love me and the feeling is mutual. Where would I be without my fans constantly responding to me?
Well, that's pretty much all your posts are good for. Oh, and:

I have not watched or read the results for the show and I don't care enough to do so. Only reason I wait for every Tuesday is just for the ratings. That's how bad WWE is atm. And I'm not even gonna bother with the blame games anymore.

You know Raw sucks when the ratings are more of a draw than the shows themselves, lol.

Well done, Ryback. The casual's thought Ryback injured Phil and thought he wouldn't be on the show boring them.

That's a true star.

LOL at Raw gaining 300k from last week because they thought The Undrawing One won't show up.
