This is down slightly from last week's Old School Raw, which saw a 3.23 rating for the highly anticipated television special. This week's show was the first non-gimmick episode in quite a while, following Raw Christmas, Raw New Years and Old School Raw. Next week boasts the big return of Dave "The Animal" Batista, which will likely make for a great string of Raw ratings leading into the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 26th.
