WWE Monday Night Raw Ratings Report: January 18, 2021 Nielsen Viewership Posted by Anthony Mango Wednesday, January 20, 2021 The January 18, 2021 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw on USA scored a 0.64 rating (roughly 1.991 million viewers) for adults aged 18-49 according to Nielsen Media Research and ranked #3 for cable programs on Monday evening.
During his segment, he announced that he purchased WCW, and the fate of the company lies in his hands. Not only did the company’s future depend on what McMahon decided next, but also the WCW Superstars’ fortunes.
Why did Vince McMahon purchase WCW?
In the late 90s, WCW and WWF (WWE) were staunch rivals. WCW’s owner, Ted Turner, wanted to expand his business into the wrestling industry. He had no issues with the financing given his vast wealth. Therefore, he put up WCW Nitro on Mondays as a direct rival for WWF’s Raw is War.
Ted Turner ran a successful business since he had names such as Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and even Bill Goldberg; additionally, he hired Dusty Rhodes to run the company. On the other hand, WWF was working on growing other Superstars such as Stone Cold, The Rock, The Undertaker, and others.
Unfortunately, even though Turner was using well-established industry names to hype his company, they started hogging most of the limelight, and WCW stopped creating new Superstars after a while.
The ratings started suffering, and Vince McMahon ensured that WWF’s ratings picked up pace. Finally, it was Turner deciding to partner with AOL Time Warner that killed WCW. At this point, AOL took over almost all management decisions and decided to bury the company.
Mr. McMahon jumped at the opportunity to purchase the company and show Turner that WWF had won. However, he owned just WCW and not the Superstars or contracts. AOL had to pay the wrestlers’ fee while McMahon walked away with the company.
Will Ted Turner return with another version of WCW?

McMahon refused to acknowledge WCW in any shape or form since the acquisition. In an interview, Vince McMahon stated that it would have been easier for him if WCW was still around.
He mentioned that even if Turner wants to get back in the business, it won’t be at the level at which McMahon’s WWE was functioning.
WWE remains the sole hegemon in professional wrestling today. Even if AEW has risen as a competitor, it’s still too small to give WWE a headache.

For the first time since March 2016, Triple H will compete on free television in the main event of this week's Monday Night Raw. The show opened with 'The Game' trying to address Drew McIntyre getting pulled from the show (due to COVID-19), only for Randy Orton to quickly interrupt him. He tried to have himself placed at No. 30 in the Royal Rumble, then demanded 'The Game' hand him the WWE Championship. When both of those ideas were shot down, Orton demanded a 'fight' with his old mentor and rival.
Hunter took issue with how Orton acted last week with legends like Mark Henry and Ric Flair, but initially turned down the idea. Orton mentioned Stephanie, prompting the 14-time world champion to punch him in the face, making the fight official.0
