Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
You can bring back any one wrestler, even from the hottest period of wrestling. And it will probably provide alittle bit of a jump for a few weeks here and there. But until the company "builds from within" and pushes their current wrestlers, writes logical storylines, and push the fans to get emotionally invested into the current workers, the ratings aren't consistently going to be high.
I'm not saying not to have the stars from previous years come in every once in awhile and do a match. There's nothing wrong with that. But that should be the "cherry on top" type of thing. Instead, it's their MAIN storyline. That's a problem. Outside of the storyline involving someone from a decade ago, there's not much for fans to get emotionally invested in. It's a problem.
