So I'm thinking they are setting up a Rock vs Cena rematch (for the WWE gold) at WM-29 since it's very likely Rock will win the belt at RR.


As much as I want to see Ryback become a WWE Champion. The Rock vs. CM Punk is my dream match.

I miss the days of WWE where they would actually let their wrestlers wrestle. Back in the day matches were more exciting & it was constant back & forth action.

These days WWE matches feel so for lack of a better word "scripted" obviously the winner is pre determined but there needs to the illusion that it isn't & that anything could happen, which WWE IS LACKING.

Now days all matches follow the same guidline, heel beats up face for majority of the match, face magically recovers hits a few bigs moves & the match is over.

All of their guys have the exact same style which makes every match feel identical. And the guys who have their own unique style such as Brian Danielson & Punk WWE doesn't allow them to showcase it.

Cm Punk isn't lying when he says he's "the best in the world". If they built up a storyline with Daniels & Punk those 2 could put on classic after classic similar to bret hart & HBK back in the day.

WWE Needs to allow their wrestlers to have their own matches, guys like punk & daniels can go into a ring and tear down the house w/o saying a word to eachother throughout the match, they need to allow their wrestlers to do what they do best. WRESTLE.

WWE has a lot of good wrestlers. If you are watching NXT and Superstars these mid carders and bottom feeders are capable of putting up great matches.

That's what I am talking about. He needs to win a secondary title before he became a main eventer.

Just give him the US Championship, and let see if the crowd will like him as a dominant US Champion.

The funny thing is right now WWE has better WRESTLERS than they've ever had. The athletes they got these days are just insane. But they don't have character or the writing they need to thrive like the older guys.

It's funny cuz it's the same with the Divas as far as hotness goes

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

But they never showcase the talent, i don't even know what channel nexus is on, yet i know where to go if i need my Ryback squash match

WWE might have alot of talent, but they must not want to do much with it or we wouldnt keep getting Punk vs Cena & Sheamus vs ADR every month..

Who cares? If you're watching Wrestling to get off on the Diva's then Internet Porn would blow your mind.

Wrestling shouldn't be a place for old men who's wife won't let them watch porn get their jolly's (not directed towards B-Low).

Womens wrestling simply does not draw, they work great as valet's, managers & interviewers but nobody buys a ppv for the kelly kelly match.

However, women like Awesome Kong could potentiall change womens wrestling forever, she can actually wrestle & put on entertaining matches.

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.
