The latest issue of Raw magazine features Steve Austin on the cover with the caption, “Stunner! The Exclusive Story Behind Stone Cold’s Return”.
The 10 minute overrun from Raw this week did a 5.0, which is the best quarter that WWE has done in some time. That means that fans tuned in to see the big Batista turn and it drew a monster rating, up nearly a full point. If you give the fans an interesting storyline, they’ll watch. If not, ratings will sink back to the low 3’s.
This is just a reminder that next Tuesday, March 1st at 9EST, WrestleZone Radio with Ryan Clark & Matt Boone will return to the internet. We’ll be broadcasting LIVE from 9-11EST each and every week. Ryan Clark will also be calling in LIVE from the Pepsi Arena in Albany, New York, site of the SmackDown! tapings. Full details at WrestleZoneRadio.com.
