Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
Just my 2 cents here, but Punk's promo's are either hit or miss, there are times where they are pretty corny "you're a loser, you're a loser too, you don't deserve to win"... lame stuff, but he does have some times where he comes out with something great, in your face, and edgy. My big complaint with Punk is he puts on great matches, but he really doesn't wrestle like a heel. He doesn't take any real short cuts, no foreign objects, no low blows, no interference from Paul Heyman... he puts on great matches, but he wrestles exactly the same as if he were a face.
As for the ratings, not sure you can blame it all on Punk as there are obviously a lot of other issues with the show. Not quite sure putting the title on Cena or Ryback (the only other options) would change anything.
