It is no secret that Raw has been struggling in the ratings department but it would seem that fans came back to see what changes a Paul Heyman led Raw would bring.
Raw drew an average of 2.496 million viewers this week. This is up 10% from last week’s 2.275 million viewers for the post-Stomping Grounds episode. The first hour drew 2.468 million viewers (last week’s hour 1 – 2.386 million), the second hour drew 2.676 million viewers (last week’s hour 2 – 2.315 million) and the third hour drew 2.345 million viewers (last week’s hour 3 – 2.126 million).
S.A.M.’s Spiel: I am not surprised at all that Raw bounced back this week. This week’s episode is among the best of the year so far and the changes from Heyman’s influence were felt throughout the episode. Hopefully, Raw can build on the momentum from this week and continue it for the rest of 2019 and beyond.
