When do you think Vince McMahon returns to WWE TV?

No one knows what Vince will do what Vince.  The T-Rex has escaped the pen!  However, if I was a betting man, I'd probably bet he appears in some fashion on the 30th anniversary of Raw on 1/23 in Philly.

What were the dark matches on the first-ever Raw taping?  How much was the taping?

Bob Backlund beat Damian Demento.  Then, the future tag team The Public Enemy battled as Cheetah (Rocco Rock) pinned Johnny Rotten (Grunge).  Then they went live on the USA Network.  After that, Yokozuna pinned Jimmy Powers and they closed up with Crush pinning Bam Bam Bigelow.  The taping was, I believe $12 per ticket.

Vladimir documentary?

No updates.  Sorry.  Trust me.  I'm sorry to write that.

Impact being in Atlanta made me wonder: when WCW was owned by Ted Turner, did they ever have anything in CNN Center to promote them?  I mean, they were heaquartered there!

There was not much.  They used to be listed on the directory of the main floor in the building but when you went there, it was just an editing bay where you could see people working on editing the TV shows.  Seriously!  On the official CNN Center tour, one of the old NWA United States Tag Team Championship belts (the ones The Midnight Express owned) was on display where you congregated before the tour and then later on, there was a big WCW photo featuring Buff Bagwell in that same area.  That was, to the best of recollection, all there ever was.
