You are discrediting the Rock carrying the show for the past two weeks leading up to now.

If the Austin hype was all that by itself, we would have *expected* to have seen a bump last week as well when he was "supposed" to show (maybe).

I think their collective star power will help becasue they are both good on the mic and in the ring.

Rock is on an awesome roll and I am interested to see if Austin can still bring it. Austin's emotional reaction was nice to see as well.

From the looks of him, it's 4.7 Big Mac Value Meals a day.

Would he have drawn that same number without the teased confrontation with the Rock? Maybe, but I doubt it.

Now, comes the real important part for the WWF/E: Trying to maintain and even build upon this rating. Austin's not having his first time back again, so the novelty idea is now gone. Now, good matches and good angles are needed on a consistent basis because a segment of the audience has demonstrated a willingness to turn off the product if its deemed of poor quality.

I think the big rise can be more attributed to Austin than The Rock. Simply because we were finally guaranteed an appearance by him and the steadily rising rating on RAW seems to indicate that, as we drew closer to the moment, more people tuned in to see what Austin would do.

Without the Rock storyline, Austin's return was still strong, because there was also the curiosity factor about what he would say after everything that has happened over the last 9 months. That said, Austin and Rock always have a chemsitry together and they're sure to draw big numbers over the next few weeks together.

This is great news, the 4.5 (and 4.7 second hour) is the highest total show and hour in 10 months. On May 6 they got a total of 4.6 with hours of 4.2 & 4.8. Strangly enough that was the first show they had to "Got the F out" and went WWE... How's that for quality info
