    I usually don’t ever turn the T.V. off during Raw…but this by far was an obvious “Rushed” Raw. What happened to Vince saying that “leading up to the Royal Rumble, Raw will definately have people talking”….?? Seriously I only enjoyed the Rock being ambushed by the Shield. We had like 3 jobber matches -_- I was hoping for the ratings to be much lower than this so WWE would realize that there show was crap this week.

      Agreed. I remember a time where both Raw and Smackdown had storylines for just about every wrestler and this is when both Raw and Smackdown were 2 hours long… I remember looking forward to Smackdown more than Raw. I just cannot fathom how much the show has degraded in time…

      3 jobber matches ? randy vs cesaro ? wade vs sheamus ? Ziggler vs miz ? Health slater is hardly a jobber, a jobber is yoshi tatsu, trent barreta ( although he is released ) etc

    was i the only one hoping that it would have been lower??

    I think WWE needs to look at making Raw 2 hours and I would even say go from 8-10 pm EST…The shows are simply to long and I get burned out by hour three and I’m a huge pro wrestling fan. I suggest working on tightening the product up. Keep 3 shows Raw, Smackdown and a Saturday “Re-cap Show” use the elements of interviews and video packages for Main Event on Raw and Smackdown.

      psh, make it 4 hours for all i care, ill still watch the whole show

    Man I’m sure Cena’s horrible promo had nothing to do with this. Hmm…

  • pwnez

    The fact that the go home show before the royal rumble drew low numbers is pretty sad. Then again, maybe fans tuned out once they heard Cena’s terrible promo. Hour 3 did lose alot of viewership which is when the Cena/brawl happened.

      I think the WWE is going to have to realize that Cena is no longer a reason why people tune it but a reason why people tune out.

        I don’t know why people dump on Cena. He’s the only guy going out there and making a real promo on the mic rather than the CM Punk and other newer guys who go up there whining, crying, and demanding. I miss the days when guys went out there and called people out much like the Rock has done in his past and recent return. I guess that’s what WWF/E fans like – the P&M club. One reason why I think that TNA has the better product!

          lmfao, dae, no just no.

      The fact that the numbers were actually this high after WWE took a piss on all their fans last week is actually surprising.

    I’ll be honest. I tune into WWE only to see Punk, Rock, & Ziggler. I fast forward through most of it all. I just don’t understand what people see in Great Khali, Brodus Clay, & Zack Ryder. I can’t watch them. It’s probably just me, but I’d rather see more wrestling w/ COORDINATED people, & not see WWE brag on itself after every commercial break. i.e.: “WWE is the longest running show”. Dude, we get it. Congrats, now can we see some wrestling? Enough of ass kissing promos too. Cena ALWAYS has to say what city he’s in during a promo. pander.. pander.. pander…. sorry, had to vent.

    • cappa37

      Here in Canada the tv station that plays Raw puts the whole show up on their website the next morning and I just watch it there. This way I can just skip through all the shitty parts. Pretty good deal I’d say… I can’t sit there for 3 hours on a Monday night.

      so does the rock.. he always says what city he is in

    I suspect next week to fall even more…Raw Roulette is absolutely STUPID.

    • Guest

      the last raw roulette was when punk cut his shoot promo

  • fireworks Ts

    HA! Before you know it raws ratings will sink to 1.0 because their product is pure dog shit. They don’t improve, they just get worse and worse. Only fanboys will defend them even though the facts are right in front of their face. Rock, Punk, Rybastard, overrated Ziggler, idiotic Sandow…weak talent. TNA has the talent and they will contnue to grow. Hoping we see a 2.0 rating within the next year. #WWEstimeisup

    what the hell is wrong with people on here? Low numbers? Over 4 million 3 hundred thousand is low numbers??? WWE is the biggest company of it’s kind. Deal with it people! Trying tomake the ratings sound worse than they are is not going to bring it down.

      considering theres 300 million people in america i would say its a low number
