"Raw delivered a 3.9 rating for the return of Vince McMahon last night, its best number since 8/26."

Now THAT is odd. Any theories?

Same reason ratings will be super high tonight - people are looking for Austin's return.

Mostly due to Vince I think. Last night was the first time I watched Raw in months and it was to see what Vince would do. If it was Vince related, and they don't forget the 30 day storyline, chances are the ratings will stay up through Wrestlemania at least. This is the biggest time of year for WWE.

It's good news for WWE. Maybe they can keep it up or even get back above four. That would be good for them.

I hope Ohio State beats Miami.

Interesting indeed. I actually didn't watch because I KNEW Vince would be on Raw!

People wanted to see what Vince would do. They were hoping it would mean something new and exciting. Even casual fans thought that it meant a new direction for the show or something interesting would happen.

Last RAW before the rumble, no MNF to compete with. If they didnt score a decent rating now they'd be as well packing up and going home.

Isn't that the last weekend before football started? And the week before MNF started was the annual Tiger Woods made-for-TV event, I think.

I expected this, Vince does = ratings when he comes back from long breaks. He is still gold on the mic, as he showed last night.

Opinions on ratings are always subjective, of course, but I found myself watching the entire first hour of RAW for the first time in months also. And yeah, it was because of Vince, one of the reasons I turned it off in the first place. Irony!

However, I don't see myself tuning in next week unless Austin returns. Nothing really happened and Vince didn't do anything of note, so I don't expect that rating to stick, at least beyond next week's post-PPV increase (if there is one). I'm really interested to see if the RAW rating held steady, rose, or dropped in hour #2. There must have been a slight dropoff after Vince left, or an increase to see if he actually WOULD do somthing yet. :)

I'm not sure there is really an audience for a movie of this. I agree with BigDaddyLoco about it being a straight to DVD job or perhaps a TV movie. As for casting - how about Dennis Farina as Vince? I can't imagine anyone but Kevin Weisman as Benoit.
