    Default RAW 20th Anniversary Rating Is In.

    This weeks 20th Anniversary of WWE Raw did a 3.185 cable rating with an average viewing audience of 4,550,000 viewers on the USA Network. Were told Vince McMahon was hoping for a 3.5 cable rating with no competition but those in the company feel its going to take some time to build the audience for the build to Wrestlemania 29.

    I don't see this as a triumph nor a failure. It was an okay show, with not too much to get explosive ratings at any point in time.

    Vince, if you wanted a 3.5 or higher, you should've had AUSTIN ON THE SHOW!!!

    "Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honor him and make whatever the man did live forever."

    It's the highest rating since the 1000th episode, but that's expected.

    It's so-so. The real test will be next week. The Rock is fully worked into the product now, we'll see if it affects the novelty of his appearances.

    Austin had a prior engagement.

    I have 1.2k channels on my cable box and I do not have a nielson box. How many of you have a nielson box?

    Point is: Ratings don't really reflect the true audience. The Nielson ratings are an estimate guaged by those who participate in the nielson ratings. It's a really innaccurate judgment of who watches anything, tbh.

    Somehow I doubt Austin avoided a big Raw payday on purpose.

    You may be searching too hard on this one. Austin wasn't obligated to be at the 20th, and neither was HBK, Taker, Bret, and the superlonglist. If you were disappointed it was your own fault.

    According to what he said on Twitter, he attends this hunting convention every year in Vegas. It's called The Shot Show. Just bad timing.

    lol, it could be just the the conspiracist in me, however I wonder if it is more about Austin playing hardball with Vince for a bigger Wrestlemania payday.

    HBK from what I read was booked for the same event as Austin. I'm sure they didn't avoid it on purpose, why would they?

    Both HBK and SCSA had their gun convention in Vegas.

    I would have at least liked to see Triple H or The Undertaker show up.

    Btw I was much happier seeing Punk, Danielson, Kane, Barrett, Cody, Damien, Cena, Ziggler, and oh hell yeah, The Rock, rather than some guys who can no longer go in the ring.

    he was the right gay guy and the right time.

    ^ I forgot where I copied that from but it was still on my clipboard and I wanted to edit the post.

    LOL that them being at the convention also made WWE decide not to have any other top star (Taker, HHH, Hart or Edge) appear on the show to save any possible backstage heat which would involve a possible pissed off HBK or Austin
