With the horrible direction they send his character.

No, its Vince and company to blame not Punk. They keep sticking Punk in lousy ass feuds like with Ryback, or Cena for the 50th time or awful segments like with Ric Flair. We see when Punk is allowed more control over his character than he has with this year reign that he can make things entertaining and interesting as hell but tis hard to turn chicken shit into chicken dinner when the stuff WWE produces now is worse than a 3rd world kids stool.

I agree with the notion of a new 2013 ratings thread.

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

Can't wait for people to say "But it was on Christmas Eve" when it draws super low ratings. News Flash! WWE ran a RAW event on Christmas DAY! In 2000 and got a 3.5 rating.

The Christmas Eve RAW will probably get a 2.1-2.3 but the New Years Eve RAW? Holy shit that is going to get a bad rating. Maybe a 1.8/1.9. I would lol if RAW got 2.0+ for the NYE episode who the fuck would miss New Years parties and celebrations to watch a horrible taped RAW episode? Friendless Virgins and kids who wasn't allowed at the parties come to mind.

Who the fuck would miss those parties and celebrations to watch a LIVE RAW episode (good or bad), anyway?

Not me. But back in the Attitude Era sometimes WWF was must see (Plus it ended at 11 so you wouldn't miss all of the party but most of it)

How would you raise ratings?

There are many concerns that ratings are tanking, the product is too child friendly, to much pandering to celeb/twitter/casual.

I am curious how would you turn WWE around? What are your ideas to bring in ratings/money for the company? How would you take the company back to the top?

The first thing I would change is the over saturation of the product. I would have Raw Monday 2 hrs, Smackdown live on USA Fridays. ScyFi is not a big enough and is not wide enough range for the WWE. and I looked at the next 3 months to see whats on friday night on usa? SVU reruns, smackdown can get better ratings than that.

I would get rid of Superstars and main event, and if you wanna keep them put them on youtube or hulu, if the match is good enough it will get the hype. I would keep Saturday morning slam but not with new matches, I would have it review the shows and do the fluff pieces that they show on raw, Like the old superstars.

The next thing is to get rid of some PPV , the economies down and the internet streams then illegally now.. 13 wont work I would say 8, 10 tops. stories will be force to be used to sell and will get more people wanting too


With the actual product? I would bring back height classes, I turned on Raw 3-4 times in the last 2 months with people who used to watch but now dont. They all said the same thing, this is so unrealistic, he is so small. no one really thinks rey, sin cara and the likes of them can beat kane and tensai.


There are a few more things but what do you think shuld change to take wrestling to the top again

Not everyone is a party person...

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?
