From 1wrestling:

WWE RAW scored a 3.5 rating this week, off hours of 3.3 and 3.6. The rating is up from a 3.3 last week, but the .2 boost is still somewhat low considering that the show followed a PPV and featured a showdown between Triple H and Scott Steiner.

Well 3 things:

1. A jump is still a jump. And if they play their cards right with building HHH/Steiner, the ratings could get bigger. The interesting thing will be next week, where they have already hyped a tag team title match. Here's hoping they give it 10-20 minutes and hopefully the main event slot.

2. At least it went up from one hour to the next. Always a good sign.

3. I wonder if HHH will blame the rating on "not enough of a lead in to his final segment".

By the way, Storm's gimmick includes 1.) telling the audience to shut up, and 2.) occasionally making everyone stand for the Canadian national anthem. You know they don't know what to do with a wrestler when he's making fans stand for a national anthem. It's like waving a white flag and saying, "This guy has no personality -- we give up."

RAW next week is taped so that's be the excuse. And then there's no RAW scheduled for December 30th.

That's right, Raw next week is being tapped on Saturday in Oklahoma, I wonder if JR will get humiliated for Christmas. King kind of teased him about it during the broadcast.

As for this weeks ratings, the overall raise isn't too impressive. It's not 0.6 like after Survivor Series or at times in the past. But 0.2 is actually good for a Raw after HHH winning the main event of a PPV, which tied with the Raw after Sept PPV (Unforgiven w/RVD) and certainly better then the Raw after SummerSlam and No Mercy both with both having a lower overall rating of -0.1.

As for the two hours. Well 0.3 isn't as good as last weeks 0.4 jump, with focus on Tags and women PPV feuds. But 0.3 is as high a second hour jump since HHH has been owning Raw since late August.

Oh they have the internet on computers now!

Funniest thing I have heard all night.... Austin won't be back anyhow unless Vince McMang(razor-esque speech) lets him buy out his contract to go to NWA-TNA.
