Last week's Monday Night Raw was awesome on so many levels. Vince McMahon's return to the show and Roman Reigns winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship contribute towards their ratings going up and nearly increasing by a million.

Now, after this week's Raw, it seems everything is back to what is an unfortunate normality in the WWE. Poor ratings.

According to NoDQ: "Monday’s episode of RAW show averaged 3.377 million viewers, down from the 3.88 million average from last week."

They also said: "The first hour averaged 3.443 million viewers, 3.374 million viewers the second and the final hour of the show averaged 3.316 million viewers."

It's clear that the return of Vince McMahon and Reigns winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship had a major impact on their ratings, as they increased to 3.88 million from the 3.054 million average the week before.

The Slammy Awards simply wasn't able to live up to the same expectation, but there wasn't too much of a plummet from the start of Raw to the end, thanks to the inclusion of the steel cage main event match between Dean Ambrose and Sheamus, which ended with Ambrose needing stitches after the match.

Overall, the integrity of The Slammys and who won the awards on offer may have affected the viewing ratings for Raw this week. Many fans expressed their disappointment about the likes of The New Day and Kevin Owens not picking up any awards this year despite being some of the most talented and entertaining stars on the roster.

At least they managed to hang on to most people who were watching from the start.
