WWE's Raw ratings have increased this week by a million viewers

Published 4 Comments

Prior to Raw this week, WWE was going through some hard times with injuries and superstars taking time off, and this was having a big effect on their viewing ratings which were dropping at an alarming rate. The WWE Universe were unhappy with the programming they were being given.

The WWE reacted, and changed some things up on the Monday Night Raw this week, and they will be glad to see the segments they aired have paid off, as their viewing ratings have risen from recent weeks, according to reports.

The Wrestling News Post has reported: "Monday’s episode of WWE RAW scored a 2.66 rating, which is up from the 2.15 rating the show drew last week. The show averaged 3.88 million viewers, which is up from the 3.054 million average from last week." That's almost an increase by a million viewers! Incredible!

The report continued and said: "The first hour of RAW averaged 4.043 million viewers while hour two drew 3.786 million viewers, and the final hour of the show averaged 3.825 million viewers."

Roman Reigns won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship for the second time in his career on Monday in the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, the same venue which he was booed at for winning the Royal Rumble earlier this year.

The announcement of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between Reigns and Sheamus earlier in the night, as well as the return of Vince McMahon and the Extreme Rules match between The Dudley Boyz, Tommy Dreamer, Rhyno, and The Wyatt Family, are seen by many critics as the reason why ratings increased this week.

Hopefully, the WWE will take note of this, recognise that this is the type of programming the WWE Universe wants to see, and provides more shows like last Monday's Raw in the future.
