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

So... it looks like Cena's drawing power really is dead. Granted, I do still think Punk on commentary back in the Cena/Show match in July helped it gain more than it would have, but not enough to figure the difference between what Cena/Show gained this week and what it would've gained back then without Punk. Clearly Cena's drawing power is in the shitter, and Ryback seems to be the biggest full-time draw they have at this point. '

Punk was in Q4 and the first 5 minutes of the 9PM and probably had something to do with that gain as well, and the Sheamus/Ziggler match was in part the last 5 or so minutes of the 9PM, with commercials in between. 9PM though had it's strongest gain and quarter hour rating since the Lawler/Punk/Heyman/Foley promo when Lawler returned.

10PM with Vickie/AJ, by today's standards wasn't a bad 10PM gain (since it loses half the time). Interestingly enough, the quarter hour rating for it was a 2.78, and last week with Vince/Vickie was a 2.73. Does that mean... AJ'S A BIGGER DRAW THAN VINCE!!!!????

Overrun rating was the strongest it's been since Punk/Cena, and the gain is the biggest since Punk and Ziggler teamed up to face Cena and Ryback. The overrun was a crazy brawl and that definitely helped things. There was Cena, Show. Sheamus, Ziggler, Shield, Team Hell No, and Ryback (WITH DAT POP) all being out there.

I'm watching you...

They are booking Ryback perfect at the moment in terms of using him on TV.

Only using him at the end of the show and the crowd begging for him to come out. Only helps him get over more and get over more with the TV casuals.

Which is the opposite of how they booked Cena. He was all over the goddamn show the last few years !!!

He's like the worlds worst "Where's Waldo ?"

John Cena's drawing power... where has it gone? I think he's in need of a serious character change.

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

That is shocking for Cena... but really does show that it's the booking and not the wrestlers that is driving people away.

As for the Shield... um, whoever wrote the breakdown needs to be smacked. That was what... a minute long video? And it's getting blamed for a whole 15 minutes? Yeah, sure... whatever. They totally weren't part of the overrun that drew decently. Not great, but at least it did better than 11000 before it.

Ziggler/Sheamus and the Punk breadowns actually benefit Punk if you want to argue that... a terrible time slot with the diva match and punk draws 200000. Couple that with the 200000 Ziggler/Sheamus drew and you see that normal top of hte hour bump. So it means people turned in SOONER because Punk was on. Still, as a heel champion with faces to chase him and an injury, they could be booking this so much better that the angle would be gaining huge. Instead, no one really believes it will come of anything until the Rock shows up.

Man... the WWE is in deep shit and I really don't know if they can pull themselves out of it. I mean, do they even realise what is the real problem or they just going to blame wrestling fans more for not liking shit entertainment?

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?
