As we have been reporting over the last two weeks the entire purpose of the Vince McMahon â<80><9c>deathâ<80> angle is to draw more attention to WWEâ<80><99>s Monday Night RAW and bring the show higher ratings. This came after increased pressure was put on WWE by the USA Network and Bonnie Hammer (President of USA Network & Sci-Fi) to return RAW back to its glory days of shocking moments and more soap opera oriented like the show was back in the late 1990s.
WWE is now planning on using the â<80><9c>who killed Mr. McMahonâ<80> storyline to draw ratings over the next several weeks. It is likely that the culprit will be revealed sometime next month, but the angle will be used to build up the buy rate of the Great American Bash pay-per-view that will take place on July 22nd in San Jose, California.
Even with the Mr. McMahon character â<80><9c>killedâ<80> off it is still likely he could make his return sometime in the distant future.
