Why is CM Punk not drawing ratings?

Discussion in 'RAW' started by Snowman, Jun 4, 2012.

  1. Simple question, why do you think it is? His title reign was pretty exciting going into Extreme Rules (save for a few filler feuds), he was getting great crowd reactions and was the talk of the wrestling world. So why haven't the fans taken to Punk like the IWC has?

    Is it the fact that he doesn't "look like a champion", he isn't a Hogan or a Cena? Is it that he doesn't have "sex appeal"? Was it that ever since that epic feud with Jeff Hardy in 2010, he was buried non-stop until the shoot vaulted him to the top, and that he was never established as a credible champion? Was it Triple H ruining his momentum, or that casuals didn't respond to the shoot as much as the IWC did?

    Why is it?
     
  2. His whole reign's just boring, he's turning into an exact version of Cena. He made a shoot promo about Cena however he's turned exactly like him, for example, his corny jokes.
     
  3. Week in, week out it's the same old story.
    It's boring, his reign is too long, and he isn't a right champion imo.
    Title change is needed, and it's needed soon.
     
  4. Cutting off his balls and not giving him good enough material until the Jericho feud kicked off. After that it's just the positioning of his segments and the beforementioned ballcutting.

    He screams "DOUCHEBAG and HYPOCRITE" all the f'n way, he has that selfish and cocky look. And THAT kind of guy is your No. 2 babyface? GTFO and die. All he does and was doing is bitching, bitching and more bitching. Horrible physique, horrible hair, horrible trunks, boots and tattoos. Fuck CM Plunk!

  8. I really don't know honestly... I don't even think WWE knows. If they did know why he isn't drawing then they would know what to change. WWE are just clueless.
     
  9. Jeff Hardy > CM Punk.. :kobe:

  10. If I remember he did draw during the epic story-line at MITB. That's what I blame it on. He won't have the drawing ability of Cena because he isn't as marketable and doesn't have that look. Punk makes up for it in other ways. Being one of the best mic workers in the WWE, being a fantastic wrestler. He needs an exciting story-line around him so he can make the most of it. I'm not sure anyone would have took advantage of the MITB story-line better than Punk.
     
  11. He just needs to be brutally attacked be someone new..
    It's just waiting and waiting now. No one knows what he'll do. It's so annoying to have the same old shit over and over again. Better booking = better CM Punk.

  12. I like him but I am just getting bored with him. Time for a change for him and the belt. Time for someone new to step up.
     
  13. He does draw ratings just not as big as when Cena is on tv
     
  14. Anyone draws ratings. Punk just doesn't draw good ratings atm.
     
  15. CM PUNK IS THE BEST IN THE FUCKIN WORLD! And he is not boring! END OF STORY CASE CLOSED!

  17. Can I ask for your opinion on why he doesn't draw?
     
  18. @[Randy Savage] So he sees Crayo's post :pity:
     
  19. Nice one, Crayo.

    I don't even consider him champion anymore. He's booked like a mid-carder, so we should consider him a mid-carder. Cena has the belt, Punk bought a $300 toy on WWE.com.

    But apparently his segments have always lost ratings since he won the belt at TLC, unless he was in the ring with another draw (Miz, Jericho) Joe may have a point about how fans may have seen his shoot as a heel promo, and he never had an official face turn. Other than hearing the face pops from the crowd, what would casuals like about the guy?

    Having your character be about shouting "BEST IN THE WORLD" instead of doing something interesting isn't helping.

    What if they used him like Bobby Roode, where he has an opening segment, may has some kind of involvement in the ME, but is always given something interesting to say and only wrestles on occasion? (And obviously cut down on the "Always getting the upper hand whenever he gets attacked by the heel" crap that we're all sick of seeing from Cena.)

  20. I sat here for a couple of minutes thinking about it and all I can come up with is he is fucking boring. He isn't cool anymore, nothing draws you in about him at this point, he looks like a waffle house fry cook, and he is just fucking boring.
