    Nice to see ratings up despite the three hour show. IF they give us this much decent content when they go to three hours permanently, they’d be in pretty good shape.

    This was by far the best raw in a month. Vinnie Mac had a lot to do with it. I especially liked all the quick appearances by certain superstars (Natalya, Regal & Ryder).


    Not bad for a sub par show. So….Vince equals ratings?

    Shocked it was so high only the first hour brought them down.
    this goes to show all the people that say “spoiler sites killed wrestling” that its not our fault because spoiler sites were back in ’06 when wwe picked it back up after falling off after the attitude era.
    plus this was only a decent raw, i wanna see the 1000th episode rating.

    Im sad because he did not say “who the hell do you think you are? Im Vince Mcmahon Damn it!” Especially after Big Johnny started to say “Im Vince President of Talent Relation’s” im pretty sure he would cut in with that and Stun in regardless if Big Show was out there or not.

    oh god.. this means more big show & cena closing out the show :/

  • G.I.R.L.

    Chyna is missing from that list…

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Vince brings the numbers…as long as it’s not weekly. After seeing the improvement, it probably will be weekly for a while.

    Are they trying to make AJ , the new Lita but a face.

    • http://twitter.com/AJCampbellNYG Andrew Campbell

      AJ is hotter and alot more entertaining than Lita ever was.

      • Vegeta241

        In my opinion, is AJ hot? Hell yes. Is she entertaining? Hell Yes. Is she hotter and more entertaining then Lita? Um….no. I love AJ, she pretty much is my favorite Diva presently. But, Lita had the looks and the talent, and is my favorite Diva of all time! Again, this is strictly my opinion, but Lita > AJ.

        • Jmc60

          AJ is definately not better than Lita

  • BrahmaBullRKO

    I wouldn’t mind if they brought Vince back more often. He’s pretty entertaining.

  • MegaAgent69

    Well when RAW goes 3 hours permanately they need to come out strong like this. I enjoyed RAW last night.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jeremycounty Jeremy-County Roberts

    I don’t understand why its so hard for WWE to understand that if they want more numbers each week……………give us something top watch. Like i know viewers turned in like crazy for vader. people had to been calling other people “OMG DUDE I KNOW YOU DONT LIKE THE WWE ANYMORE BUT TURN ON USA, THEY GOT VADER ON” crap like that brings people back and wanting to see what might happen next week.

  • naynay

    it was really good last night thats a shock

  • juan

    only reason ratings are up again was for that idiot johnnyingto get fired if that idiot doesn’t get fired I will stop waching like before. Too bad people are idiots hating TNA at least they have a PG 13 not the kiddy grade WWE PG
