How long was the Cena/show match actually? How much of it was part of overrun?

It seems Cena's drawing abilities are no longer what it used to be.

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

These numbers show two important things. Firstly Punk isn't that popular seeing as his segment was lower then the opening one and the one directly after his. Plus he was not in the overun /ending which again shows you could have anyone in that slot and they would gain viewers.

And secondly Cena is losing his star power.

Tbh Cena and Punk both have a lot in common. Their characters are stale and boring and they have been forced down peoples throats for years. They are on TV more then anyone else.

If these numbers don't show Vince things need to change then none will.

Yeah, they hurt him by not having him change and evolve his character.

I call bullshit on The Shield interview losing 350k viewers. It's a 1 minute long video for fucks sake, how can one minute of a quarter be used to judge it's success?

AJ Leech killing dat Cena drawing power.

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?

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

So once again, Punk gains significantly, in spite of being injured and in spite of not being placed in the magic overrun spot where allegedly anyone will gain even if it's Ryder against Santino in a staring contest for the vacant Diva's championship.

Meanwhile, Cena bombs in the main event.

What more can be said? It's not Punk. It's not Cena. It's the company.

Never changing his character up, having him go over everyone, rarely losing cleanly, dominating the product since 2006 and giving him lousy opponents and feuds for the majority of his career over the last several years will do that.

Like i said way back WWE should have been trying to build Kennedy, MVP and Carlito as their next big things and never dropped the ball with them. Maybe the ratings wouldn't be so shit right now if we had 3 other upper carder/main eventers for Cena to feud with.
