3 hours is defintiely overkill. I find myself already tired of watching by 9:30 and then realize there's still half a show left. Three hours just comes off sloppy and gives us too many segments that arent fleshed out but just filler it seems like. YOu lose interest in the show easily.
I dont have much of a comment on the titles. They're doing ok so far to me. I just wish Bryan and Kane would stop yelling like idiots about themselves being the tag team champions. That gets annoying.
Legends have been appearing a little bit too much. I enjoy seeing them but after a while it wears thin. Either have them on the main roster appearing regularly or dont. Choose. On that note...I somewhat miss Nash. I really wanted him to have a long run with the WWE but after that match with Triple H he left completely.
I like the 3 hour RAW. The matches have been so much better and longer. Anyone check out the PPV quality match that was Damien Sandow vs Sheamus? I've been wanting better matches and we are getting them. Some people bitch that there is too much talking and the matches are too short. Then RAW goes 3 hours to fill the need for great matches and people STILL complain. I for one think RAW has been a lot better 3 hours long and overall has been really entertaining lately.
And anyone bashing CM Punk, I'm speechless except to say he has been lately one of the most original, dastardly, entertaining heels I can remember. He even as Paul Heyman on TV with him.
We've complained about the lack of tag teams. They are having a tournament now.
We've complained about the lack of air time on raw for floundering wrestlers we like like Slater, Drew etc and they are now getting tv time.
We've complained about the prestige of the US and IC titles and it looks like they are trying to bring that back, especially with Antonio.
We've complained about Cena being on TV too much and guess what? He was not on TV last Monday.
So I just don't know anymore what else they can do at this point.
Every single time the Dallas Cowboys have been on Monday Night Football, the RAW ratings have dropped. I dont see why it's such a big deal this time. Dallas is still the #1 ratings draw for the NFL.
What I would do:
1. Make Daniel Bryan a full fledged face, embrace the "Yes" chants and become one of the top 2 or 3 faces in the company.
2. Give CM Punk a stable. He's fantastic in this role.
3. Have Vickie Guerrero some how screw over Ziggler (maybe after cashing in the MITB), turn Ziggler face and this will further propel his main event status.
4. Continue to build Wade Barrett as a top heel in the company.
5. Continue to build Damien Sandow with possibly an IC Title run.
6. Get Miz back into the main event title scene. He was fantastic as the WWE Champ. Almost Flair-lite when it came to out of the ring stuff.
7. Make Brodus Clay a monster heel...
It is not what the WWE needs to do it is what the IWC needs to do. Which is stop trying to act like yall are the WWE, yall don't work with them or for them so leave the how to make things better to them and enjoy the WWE only from a fans perspective. There is a reason why RAW was able to celebrate 1000 episodes and that is because the WWE know what the hell they are doing. And as long as the WWE has viewers what they are doing is all right and what you are saying is all wrong.
It more then Monday Night Football.... a very competitive Network TV Fall season...... Dancing with the Stars, The Voice, Castle, and other shows.... Also I would figure school activities have lots to do with the ratings....
