This time of year is always slow for WWE but the viewership numbers are lower than most of the previous years, which is something that people in the company should be concerned about.
This week’s episode, headlined by Braun Strowman vs. Kane, drew 2.68 million viewers. That would be the least watched show since June 12th. It should be noted that the June 12th edition of Raw was up against the NBA Playoffs.
Even worse, the second hour for this week was the second lowest “hour two” in their history.
Here is the hour by hour breakdown:
8 pm – 2.88 million viewers
9 pm – 2.61 million viewers
10 pm – 2.57 million viewers
The Dolphins vs. Patriots game on ESPN drew 11.78 million viewers.
