Both the total viewership and 18-49 demo rating were the lowest since the July 5 edition of Raw, before WWE returned to touring. It is worth noting that Raw had competition from Monday Night Football, with the Raiders vs Chargers game drawing 11.333 million viewers.
The Dodgers vs. Giants MLB game also drew an impressive 3.553 million viewers, and the Tampa Bay Rays vs. Red Sox MLB game was watched by 3.229 million viewers.
On the show, The Usos faced off against Drew McIntyre and WWE Champion Big E. After the match finished via count-out, McIntyre hit Big E with a Claymore in the ring. McIntyre challenges Big E for the WWE Championship at Crown Jewel on October 21.
Also on the show, the King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournaments continued, with more first round matches. Following SmackDown’s Queen’s Crown bouts, it was reported that there is ‘significant frustration‘ within WWE over the booking of the women’s division.
