I don't think anyone is a ratings draw, I think that the ratings only prove that the product is really quite bad at the moment. Not one person being champion will be able to change that at this point.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

Re: After Rollins and Roman 2:16, can we finally admit that Bryan WAS a ratings draw?

I'm a wrestling fan. Whether a wrestler can or can not draw a casual fan has NO affect on me whatsoever. I don't understand how some fans force so much emphasis on the ability to draw on whether someone is a good, or not. We don't work for WWE.

Ratings are completely and utterly exaggerated in importance by modern fans, (Obviously they're important to the company), due to the ratings war of the WWF VS WCW, and it's fallout from that. The fact some people use ratings as a Negative toward certain wrestlers is daft.

I'm a wrestling fan, I couldn't care less if Daniel Bryan or Roman Reigns gets over with the casual fan.

WE ARE FANS. Why would a wrestlers affect on other people be so important to us?

Bryan is a draw to the ones who are already watching wrestling week after week, no matter how crappy it is. Not the masses, not the more important casual audience. After he got stripped last year numbers started to creep back up if I recall. When he was advertised to return this year the number still sucked. And let's not forget SS 2013's buyrate. People want to blame Reigns then why not blame Bryan for their big show doing worse than 2012 despite a much better build? If he was still around week after week the numbers will still be in the low-mid 2s at best.

I know a good product draws, and I will say that since CM Punk left and Daniel Bryan got injured, there really hasn't been anything to get the crowd buzzing like they did and I lost major interest when they went, Kevin Owens came close but of course he hit that Cena glass ceiling

you do realise when Bryan was drawing he wasn't champion? and Bryan had to deal with jobbing to Orton and the Wyatt's, whilst WWE tried to put his overness on to Big Show? It was still incompetent back then until the fans and CM Punk had had enough.

He was the champ at Survivor Series not the raw. You cant say he killed the ratings unless he was the champion.
