It looks like the momentum brought in by the SummerSlam PPV is washing off as the Raw episode this week dropped below 3 million in the viewership.
Last week’s SummerSlam followup episode of the Red Branded show with Finn Balor vs. Roman Reigns in the main event had drawn 3.095 million viewers.
The numbers, however, dropped this week by 7% and the episode featuring Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler brought 2.877 million viewers.
The first hour was the most watched hour of Raw this week, and it drew 3.076 million viewers. The second and third hours then saw a dip and they drew 2.927 million and 2.630 million viewers respectively.
Though since Shawn Michaels and Undertaker’s returns are expected to take place on Raw next week, we can expect the audience to rise or at least stay steady compared to this week.
