Re: **The Official Raw Ratings Thread** (Discuss Ratings In Here)
I think the promo helped people remain interested in the Punk/Bryan/Kane match. I mean, every other time it's just been a match thrown on screen, this time there was build to it. Something COULD have happened and people stuck around more than usual.
Also, love that Big Show does Punk gains in the 10pm slot and the writer couldn't be assed this time to mention how "poor" that is for that slot. At least be consistent in the praise/criticism.
Overall... not surprised McMahon drew and not surprised that actual promos drew. Surprised at Vader though... who would have thought that many hardcore fans would tune in just for that... it certainly wouldn't be casuals changing for a blast from the past.
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
