Some segments lately haven't even been able to gain a 3.0 and you're calling anything under a 4.0 a disappointment? I think that's setting expectations a little too high. The opener and the overrun were both 3.9. It's everything in between that let them down. Had they experienced a bigger gain in the middle, they would have been well into 4.0 territory. I don't see how it's a disappointment tbh. They got a big result from post-Rumble interest at the start. They advertised a HHH return and got a big result at the end too. If things aren't above 5 million next week, then I'd start to worry and call it a disappointment.

And I can see a 4.0 in March, if you got a big Rock segment and Shaq segment on the same show? + HHH/Taker/HBK? easily.
Agreed. Rock's going to give them quite a boost and HHH/Taker will maintain it. Shaq, if he's there, will give an extra boost and that's only 2/3 matches. Throw in general RTWM hype and everything else still to come and I think they'll definitely hit 4.0 at some point.
