    That's interesting. Throws a damper on one of my two gripes.

    Rock on Raw=Ratings

    Rock on Raw with the belt=Even higher ratings....huh...I really thought it wouldn't matter, but apparently numbers don't lie and I'm wrong.

    I don't like being wrong, but I appreciate the education on this thread, on why I was.

    To be honest I was a little shocked it had so much effect as well. I thought the fact John Cena was going to win the rumble and The rock was going to win the WWE title were pretty much accepted facts.

    This is the crux of the matter I keep going on about, it may be accepted facts by the IWC who've been reading about it for months on forums like this but for your average fan, who make up most of the viewing audience, they would not have anticipated this especially the Cena win.

    I am sorry I wasn't more specific. I meant I'm surprised so many smarks are shocked by this.

    You're right. I assumed that just the names cena and rock would draw big regardless of a belt and wouldn't go any higher. Obviously that's not the case and there's numbers to prove it...actual facts.

    It's a good business move including that belt apparently. It's nice to know the WWE's reason is valid, now.

    They're more pissed than shocked.

    They would draw big as last years Mania proved, this year with the title will just draw even bigger.

    See I didn't think it would draw bigger than last year, but with the raw ratings as a indicator with rock as champ......I was wrong. And kind of surprised, but will accept the facts in my wrongness...LOL.

    Kudos to the rock for having that much impact on the ratings with the belt, is all I can say now.

    Just a thought, couldn't the fact that a long title reign just ended might also make people wonder what wwe is planning to do? So it might not all be on the rock alone.

    It will be interesting to see if he makes much reference to it in the run up to Mania, in the film part of his life. If he drops mentions a few times in his film promos the figures could be ridiculous for Mania.
