Proof Of Who Draws (And Who Doesn’t) In WWE, Where I Stand On Daniel Bryan, Sting/WWE Update

- My friend Ciprian Danciulescu sent me the link to a very interesting chart of the 2013 Monday Night Raw quarter ratings broken down by performer. The graph reveals the performers that increased the audience and the performers that decreased the audience, including and excluding the overrun segment. Below is the graph:

- Not to belabor the point but I want everyone to know where I stand on the situation with Daniel Bryan. It’s not that I feel Vince McMahon is stupid, I think he’s stubborn. I don’t think there is some type of anti-Daniel Bryan agenda in WWE, in fact I believe the opposite is true. I think WWE wants Bryan to succeed and booked him in the most prominent segments on this week’s Raw because of that. However, I still believe what the fans want for Bryan at Wrestlemania and the direction Vince McMahon sees are two different things. I hope I’m wrong and Bryan gets his shot in a top match at Wrestlemania XXX but that wasn’t the vibe I got from speaking with people that heard about the updated plans.

- For those that missed my update on the Sting to WWE rumors I added at this link, the last one of my lead sources heard was Sting was leading towards accepting WWE’s offer. However, they had not heard a contract had been finalized but cautioned that could have changed at a moment’s notice. Readers are already speculating about Sting’s involvement at Wrestlemania and I would like to be able to confirm a contract before we go any further.

    I don’t know how often he’s been featured at the end of RAW, but Randy Orton’s numbers look pretty sad…

  • Bob’s Diner

    I prefer the exclusion of the overrun. Makes it so much funnier to think that Paul Heyman outdraws every wrestler on the roster

    • Kevin

      Where’s Ziggler?

  • Xavier

    Why the hell are people turning the channel when Naomi is on TV?

    • David Jr.

      I want to know how Naomi is #1 but Cameron isn’t even in the top 20?

      • Xavier

        That’s a very good question actually

        • TheBigT

          Cuz she’s black and ugly.

          • Jean_ae

            Racism is still a thing, huh?

          • Xavier

            What can I say, the Tea Party/Troll movement is strong within this nation sadly.

  • decarlos atkins

    i find it hilarious that all the internet darlings people love to bitch and whine about (with the exception of CM Punk) is not even in the top ten lol but damn Vickie Guerrero and Paul Heyman is….but yea who the hell dont want to watch Naomi smh

  • Bob’s Diner

    On further reading, Curtis Axel outdraws Randy Orton AND Sheamus.
    His charisma is just so enthralling…

    Someone should show this to R-Truth so he can feel really sad

    • Nostaljack

      Oh wow you’re right! LOL!!! Now I have to question the veracity of his list. I kinda don’t buy DB being where he is but Axel? No way!

      • Bob’s Diner

        What do you mean? Curtis Axel is the most exciting superstar in WWE history!!! He and Brad Maddox are setting the world on fire!

  • Jimmy

    Antonio Cesaro the least drawing star in all of WWE? I don’t believe that

    • Bob’s Diner

      No you are reading upside-down – Naomi loses the most viewers.
      Apparently.

      This thing is so incredibly hilarious. Brad Maddox apparently draws more viewers than Randy Orton

      • Venom

        Like the Miz, Brad Maddox has an amazing wardrobe style. I make sure I never miss his segments! The man looks awesome in his vests.

  • The Bops

    Excellent point – Vince isn’t stupid. But, he is wicked stubborn.

  • Alain Labatos

    Funny because Vickie draws more than Punk lok

  • Razmos

    So hang on a second Richard, are you saying that us readers shouldnt comment on Sting until you say otherwise? What ever happened to freedom of speech?

    • JR Texx (Jamie)

      he didn’t even say that..

      • Razmos

        Hmm i think he goes somewhere along those lines, last paragraph, why can we not speculate until Richard confirms a contract? He thinks he is something that he isnt, all this inside information he claims to have and makes people pay to read is all available for free on other sites, this is why he deletes my comments when questioned by me, he had no responce so deleted comment to save face.

        • Judas

          Comprehension is not your strong suit is it? He is basically saying “don’t put the cart before the horse” and get all excited about Sting signing when it hasn’t happened yet. He didn’t say we couldn’t talk about it…

          The information on this site is not always on others, if you actually paid for a membership you would see that. If you don’t like the site, stop visiting it. I guarantee none of us will miss you.

          • Razmos

            Thats nice to know, i wouldnt pay for a site that i use to read occasional news, im not a die hard wrestling fan and have better things to do with my life, i actually have a job and a wife, so whilst you virgins are banging one out to CM Spunk and Daniel Bryan, i am doing more pro active things :-) happy reading guys!!!!!

          • Bob’s Diner

            OMG! He called us virgins!!! You got me, you creative man, you

  • JR Texx (Jamie)

    That moment when HHH is higher than Daniel Bryan.

    • Bob’s Diner

      That moment when you take away the overrun and his wife draws more than him!

  • Nostaljack

    So there are 10 other workers on the roster who outdraw Bryan? Oh boy. I know I’ll get neg’d to death but…well…why even say it? The fans make more noise for him live than any other worker I’ve ever seen and I feel it’s totally justified. However, others draw more. Numbers don’t lie. This is really interesting to me as I never would have guessed this.

    Sting can help WWE to keep them number one !!!
