There's only one man that WWE fans are blaming for the decreasing quality and subsequent drop in viewing figures for Monday Night Raw - and that is Vince McMahon.

McMahon has the final say on anything creative-wise, and he has apparently recently re-written the majority of red brand shows at the last minute.

He's been dealt a bad hand recently due to injuries and illness, but that's no reason to undermine his creative staff by changing things late in the day and not making the show any better.

As WWE fans probably know by now, McMahon is returning to Monday Night Raw the night after Tables, Ladders and Chairs, where the company have stated he plans to 'shake things up'.

That could mean anything from trading superstars between brands, to even personally getting rid of acting Raw GM Baron Corbin, who will no doubt be fired should he lose at TLC.

But Vince's appearance could all be part of a bigger motive, and to get the wheels in motion for a potential big storyline.

Journalist Bryan Alvarez discussed the product on the Wrestling Observer Live podcast this week, and he's heard tidbits that there may be a big plan after all to improve the product at the start of 2019.

“For those of you who hate Raw, all I’m going to do is tell you that the belief within WWE is that they believe it is all turning around in January," Alvarez said, per Ringside News.

Vince McMahon's appearance this Monday on Raw could link to the apparent big storyline set to occur at the start of 2019.

"Apparently, they have some sort of idea and they think it’s all turning around in January and that the ratings in January are going to be good again. The show is going to be better and something big is going to happen.”

“Of course, everybody is going to be speculating all sorts of crazy things. Young Bucks, this, that. Don’t get your hopes up, everybody.”

“I don’t know what they’re thinking, but they seem to believe that in January, this thing is turning around.”

It's hard to picture what WWE could pull off as a 'big storyline' but McMahon's return this Monday could potentially have something to do with it.

We also know John Cena is soon returning to Raw, so there's a chance he could figure in the so-called turn-around.

The fact is though we have no idea what the company has in mind, or if Alvarez has heard duff info.

There are fingers crossed throughout the world though that things improve on WWE television sometime soon.
