Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread [Post All TV Ratings Discussions Here]
It's a good rating considering it was a taped show.
Taped vs Live as something affecting ratings is a massive false ideal. It has not mattered at all. In fact, the average of the taped shows ratings have actually been higher than live.
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?
