This week was the go-home show for The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. However, the real horror show was this week’s viewership for WWE Raw.
Showbuzz Daily reported the ratings for this week’s show as Raw pulled in only 1.561 million viewers. This is the new all-time lowest rating for an episode of Raw. Here is the breakdown of the hour-to-hour viewership.
8:00 pm (Hour One): 1,580,000
9:00 pm (Hour Two): 1,599,000
10:00 pm (Hour Three): 1,504,000
This week’s show beat the previous record low by over 100,000 fewer viewers. The previous record low came on the May 4 episode of Raw, which drew 1.686 million viewers.
The show finished the build to the Extreme Rules show with segments such as a VIP Lounge with Dolph Ziggler and a Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins rematch. The show also featured a main event of Asuka and Kairi Sane vs. Bayley and Sasha Banks. This comes before Banks challenges Asuka at Extreme Rules.
It is clear WWE is low on the list of priorities for fans at the moment. Ratings have not been good for Raw since Backlash. There seemed to be interest in the Edge vs. Randy Orton rivalry, an interest that has not carried over since.
