Monday Night Raw draws second lowest rating its history

Facing off against Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference Finals probably didn’t help, but Raw’s latest ratings weren’t good, to say the least.

Monday Night Raw drew 2.494 million viewers, setting a new low for 2018. The only time the WWE’s flagship show drew less than that was on the night of the 2016┬áPresidential Debate.

This week’s episode didn’t exactly give fans much of a reason to watch. Between a continuation of the Sami Zayn-Bobby Lashley feud, Seth Rollins taking on Jinder Mahal, and contending with Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, it was going to be an uphill battle.

To put it in perspective, WWE’s average viewership for 2018 sits at 3.018 million. Raw has yet to draw 3 million or more since April. (Stats courtesy of Wrestling Inc)

  • How did I forget about that? I’m pretty disappointed in myself…I was even watching that game. Lol.

    Roman Reigns isn’t on the show and the ratings tank. How ironic.

    Is it really that much of s surprise that post WM, viewing figures drop?
    From Jan right up until WM is the peak season for WWE as it is all about the build up to the biggest PPV of the year. After that, a lot of people lose interest.

    It not just the NBA Western Conference Finals but the NHL Stanley Cup too the Las Vegas Golden Knights is a big draw.
