Re: Ratings obsession?

I think people should have the right to follow the ratings if they want. They just don't have the right to demand other people do, nor do they have the right to force and/or demand that people choose their favorites based on them.



I been judging wrestlers by the amount of entertainment they brought me since 1990. Ratings were never important until Eric Bischoff started gloating about it on Nitro. There's no more Nitro, no more WCW, so we should have been gone back to a time where the shit isn't relevant. Technology has made it less relevant in real terms over the years anyway. The only original indicator of "drawing" that is still valid is attendance, because you will always need an audience.

Re: Ratings obsession?

People don't even understand ratings. They see the declining ratings, and they also compare today's ratings to 2002 or even as late as 2009. Yet, they fail to realize/understand that TV ratings as a whole are declining rapidly year to year.

RAW's ratings have actually decreased at a lower percentage over the past decade then the "average TV show." The average rating for the Top Rated Show in TV in 2012 is like 21% lower then the Top Rated Show in TV in 2004. Whereas the average RAW 2012 rating is only 16% lower then RAW 2004

Re: Ratings obsession?

People follow the ratings because its a tv show and in the world of tv ratings matter. Though not as much as they use too.People who hate certain wrestlers will use ratings to show that wrestler as doing bad however those exact same people who say ratings dont matter will also use ratings when the numbers work for them.

Its a tv show. Ratings do matter whether people want them to or not.

My point still stands. You're just mad that Punk is not a draw.

If he's drawing big numbers right now, you'll be like "OMG GUYZ PUNK IS A DRAW. RATINGZ ARE SO IMPORTANT".

Re: Ratings obsession?

If isn't ratings it would be crowd reaction, ring or promo ability,politic antics etc. people gonna use them as bullets on the wrestlers they hate even if they have avatars or sig with wrestlers that share the same problem.

So don't lose your time on that, I like ADR and I had to deal with a bunch of smarks hating on him daily so whatever.

Undertaker is a selfish, arrogant, broken down old has been who can't give it up, who doesn't give one shit about the next generation of stars and helping the company that made him thrive. It's always all about him.

Re: Ratings obsession?

Just listen to what the Undertaker said and that sums up everything perfectly. People just need to shut up and enjoy the show instead of complaining about every second of the show every week. Fans have forgotten why they are fans and they are focusing on the negatives instead of the beauty of wrestling.

Check out my WWE gaming videos!

Re: Ratings obsession?

I said it once and I'll say it again. Rating marks are the lowest form of marks in this forum. It's pathetic when they try to rationalise why a wrestler sucks by how much they draw.

Re: Ratings obsession?

Who ever said people who are "obssessed" with ratings were enjoying or were supposed to enjoy the idea of having Punk as the champion in the first place?

Re: Ratings obsession?

Question is why do YOU care if other people care about ratings?
