Can you imagine Kelly Kelly, Kaitlyn, Natalya, Eve, AJ, Rosa etc in the old Attitude days of thongs, bra and panties matches, mudwrestling, random nudity etc? There were hot ones back then but the ones they got now are on a whole nother level...but they have to wrestle in f*ckin shorts


Thats the problem, they might be great athletes but they all were trained by the same person, and they all have the same style. All work a match the exact same way, their athletes, not workers out their telling a story within the match.

Look at guys like Bret Hart, HBK, Stone Cold, Mankind they were all good athletes not anything special by todays standards but they all knew how to WORK A MATCH, they could tell a story and make you care about the match.

Women's wrestling used to main event on Raw sometimes. Lita vs. Stephanie was a main event on one raw, Lita vs. Trish, Lita and Rock vs. Triple H and Trish etc.

They just don't give them a chance to shine. AJ got a chance to actually develop a crazy character and now she gets one of the top 10 loudest pops when she comes out

Ready to push a panic button, Vince?

shows you how much they rely on cena. he gets hurt and the ratings go to shit. ryback hasn't done anything to stop the bleeding so maybe he's not as over as some of the crowds make it out to be. usa network will say 'feed me more' ratings...

whatever though, been basically watching raw sporadically since it moved to three hours. i guess that could be another possibility as to why ratings have dropped. that's too damn long. has it been a steady decline since moving to three hours or does it coincide more with cena getting hurt?

IMO, Ratings are dropping because the product has BEEN steadily declining.

To be honest with you guys, I think Raw has improved over the past few months. The Tag Titles and the Intercontinental/US Title are more respected, and the WWE Championship is still going strong.

the pg era is the reason why wee has gone to shit.

people don't watch wrestling to not see blood and not hear curse words. we want to watch guys beat the hell out of each other, bleed a lot and a lot of big bumps through tables ladders and chairs, cages, and thumbtacks.

if they turn cena heel, like they should've after wrestlemania, pushed ziggler, and rhodes, kept big show a face, and pushed ryback properly, than maybe the ratings would be higher.

the product has gone so stale, cena has been a face for something like 9 years now? i guarantee if they turned him heel, the ratings would sky rocket

Sheamus should turn heel. He's a much better character when he's the villain.

Ryback needs a new finisher. He botched his finisher on Paul Heyman and Tensai.

Maybe once this election period is over and Linda McMahon bombs out in the Senator race again they'll finally stop wasting their time on trying to get her elected and ditch the PG stuff.

Hopefully. I mean I doubt they'll go back to full-on Attitude Era levels of risque, cuz right now they simply don't need to. But I do hope they unlock the handcuffs theyve put on all the talent in the last few years
