It’s pretty clear that fans are not happy with WWE’s creative direction and the message is being sent by fans that have been tuning out.
This week’s episode was watched by an average of just 2.29 million viewers, the least watched show in the history of Raw and it may be the least-watched show in the history of Monday night wrestling if you include Prime Time Wrestling, the precursor to Raw.
They were up against the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins game which drew 11.24 million viewers. Football is not the blame here because WWE is up against the NFL every year.
Here is the viewership breakdown for each hour:
Hour 1 – 2.26 million viewers
Hour 2 – 2.40 million viewers
Hour 3 – 2.20 million viewers
