Re: Official Raw Ratings Thread 2013
Another thing you have to consider is Rock's Twitter as a promotion tool. Alot of on and off and non-wrestling fans follow him. If he's hyping up his return on that website, it might be just as important a factor to consider as that RAW promo they shot since a sizable portion of that group might tune-in out of curiousity.
Rock's advertised returns have always made decent to good numbers since 2011, if the Rock appears regularly on RAW, then some people eventually skip a show or two, but that always happens when the novelty of anything wears off. This will mark his first appearance since RAW 1000th, so it's a big deal that people will be interested in.
