Monday Night Raw ratings continue to disappoint

Monday Night Raw

Even with the exciting Superstar Shake-Up taking place this week, Monday Night Raw still couldn’t manage to crack 3,000,000 average viewers this week. In fact, they dropped around 260,000 viewers following the post-Mania week.

Last Monday, Raw drew 2,923,000 following WrestleMania, opening the show with Seth Rollins and Kofi Kingston and a promise of a Winner Take All match in the main event. This week, Raw only managed to bring in an average of 2,665,000 viewers.

It’s been a long time since the WWE have cracked that 3,000,000 ceiling. In fact, the last Raw to accomplish this feat was on August 20th, 2018, which featured the new Universal Champion Roman Reigns putting his title on the line against Finn Balor, Ronda Rousey’s Raw Women’s Championship Ceremony, and Triple H addressing his match with The Undertaker at WWE Super Show-Down.

With the WWE entering its weakest part of the year, one has to wonder if they’ll be able to bounce back at all or if the ratings will continue to dip.

    There is something the dirt sheet don’t get not everybody has to watch Raw on Monday night anymore. With Hulu you can watch Raw anytime.

    Answer me one question, though:
    What was it’s position in the cable rankings?

    Hint: It’s 3rd, 4th, and 5th. Raw was only beaten by the NBA playoff games that were aired, and the total viewership difference was less than 300,000. The ratings suck because cable ratings are lower for everything now. You should know that. This article is the kind of baseless “journalism” that makes people think dirt sheets are a joke.
