When RAW ratings sink to abhorrent levels, one of two things always seems to ensue: Vince McMahon returns to TV, or Triple H returns to TV.
The two seasoned WWE mainstays hardly have the drawing power that they'd like the WWE fanbase to believe they do at this stage in their careers, but bless their souls for trying.
Now that the WWE has taken an axe to its Vince McMahon emergency glass case, the plan is for RAW's ratings to pick up with the boss back on TV throwing his weight around.
Unfortunately, that's probably not going to happen.
This is not to say that Vince McMahon still doesn't have a direct impact on ratings and can no longer be used as a relic of interest from time to time. But the current product is so stale that few things will really shake up the ratings, none of which include Mr. McMahon.
