WWE got some good news with the viewership numbers.
The post-Fastlane edition of Monday Night Raw drew 2.82 million viewers, a strong number as the hype for WrestleMania continues.
The other good news is that they did not see a big drop from the first to the third hour, which is a strong indication that fans were interested to see what would happen between Batista and Triple H, Kurt Angle’s announcement, and Roman Reigns’ Raw in-ring return. Reigns was attacked by Drew McIntyre so Reigns did not wrestle.
Raw was the number four show on cable on Monday night.
Here is the hourly breakdown:
8 pm – 2.84 million viewers
9 pm – 2.87 million viewers
10 pm – 2.75 million viewers
