There's an emotional connection to their matches because they make you buy into it & turn into an everyday mark all over again. That feeling is what wrestling is all about. It's FUN. I LOVED the Cena/Batista Last Man Standing match & thought the duct tape finish was genius. I know it is not everyone's cup of tea but I really dug that. That match drew me in too. I have been watching wrestling for like twenty-five years or something silly now, so it's not very often when I see something that I have never seen before!
You're certainly not wrong with what you're saying, but surely it goes more with the grain of your matured tastes and opinions as opposed to childish glee. Don’t get me wrong, you can’t genuinely feign having fun watching something. You describe it though as more of an....appreciation for how things are done, rather than watching with that doe-eyed expression a 10 year old Walk-In would carry as he watched his favourite personalities kick serious arse on the tube. Our innocence is lost I’m afraid when we discuss things in detail, and we don’t settle for just anything anymore. Now the company has to cater to our goddamn demands.

Why is it that they have to live that rockstar lifestyle outside of the ‘E for you to believe in them? Not trying to be smart, but it is a viewpoint that a lot of people seem to carry around here when talking about the vanilla midgets and why steroids need to make a comeback. The appreciation and well-tuned subjectivism might be there when you credit things like Cena and Batista’s misadventures with duct tape, but it still is something that dictates to your broadened palette no? It was good writing that made it fun/amusing, which you recognized yeah? The veil will never be fully raised for you again, and you can even appreciate things like Twitter for what they could do for the world of kayfabe, as well as why the company wants stuff like this to get the ahead of the proverbial pack.

By the way, it’s good to see optimism return to the sunny shores of WF after what was a generally positively reviewed PPV in TLC. Maybe a lot will now realize why they decide to stick with it through thick and thin to get their entertainment kicks. Perhaps this ratings prioritisation will be put on the back burner until certain situations call for such theorising.

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

today is the last Monday Night football game of the year and it sucks (Jets vs. Titans). From here till August (not counting the two pre-taped shows for Christmas Eve & New Years Eve, since they do bad anyways), It will be interesting to see how well the 3 hour format does in ratings (even though it still as a lot of TV competition going up against).

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

meh they need to be over the top. its been long overdue that it will draw now. bring back title changes on RAW and Smackdown, bring back midcarders cutting promos on each other and having entertaining feuds. have hornswoggle fuck ceasaro's teenage daughter and have ceasaro destroy hornswoggle to the point where he's written off the show because ceasaro "killed" him in a match. it'll be hilarious, entertaining and put ceasaro or whoever over as a true nutcase not to fuck with. get rid of the divas division and make them valets and managers again. no one cares about women's wrestling anymore. Replace that time with more midcard feuds. Just drop all the family friendly shit, it doesn't draw. Its not the 80s anymore. Bring back cussing (it gets how pissed the guy is across much better) bring back blood (only use it for heated rivarlies and not every week like ric flair and HBK were doing). Make the arenas darker, get rid of all the bright florecent colors. This isn't disneyland its a wrestling show.

I think my kid is fucking your wife.

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

Too bad Monday Night Football was one of the worst games of the year or I would actually be anticipating a low(er) rating for RAW. Instead, they will probably get about the same number that they have been getting lately: a 2.7ish.

Would love to see a 2.4. This show deserves it.

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

With Christmas Eve and New Years Eve coming up the next two Raws (notably low rating shows), if this Raw does bad, I wonder if they'll sort something out for the new year. How about a New Years Resolution of going back to 2 fucking hours.

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

No cable ratings out yet. I'm expecting hour three to be the lowest, again, due to stupid commercial placement at the start of hour three.
