The total viewership and demo ratings for the latest instalment of Monday Night Raw have been revealed.
As reported by Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, the much-hyped ‘Raw after WrestleMania’ drew 2,101,000 viewers. That is the highest viewership figure since January 4th 2021.
The show also scored a 0.63 rating in the 18-49-year-old demographic. That works out at 820,000 viewers. That figure was the highest since August 23rd 2021.
This is an increase on the previous week which pulled in 1,979,000 viewers with a 0.55 rating in the aforementioned key demographic.
There was only one way the April 4th episode of Monday Night Raw was ever going to begin, and the show did not disappoint. Cody Rhodes was the first man to the ring to address his WWE return on what was his first appearance on Raw in six years.
Rhodes discussed how his father never won what would become the WWE Championship, explaining that he promised him he would go and win it for him when he was a kid. Continuing on, he said that while he might not be able to hand the belt to his father anymore, he can still put it around the waist of the American Nightmare.
In closing, Rhodes added that he would win the WWE Championship for the fans, himself, his family and the American Dream. Although Seth Rollins came to the ring, the pair only shared a handshake before moving on.
The show also saw two partnerships fall by the wayside, as MVP turned on Bobby Lashley and aligned with Omos, and Queen Zelina finally had enough of Carmella, blaming her for losing the tag team titles. Meanwhile, Bron Breakker got revenge for his defeat at Stand & Deliver, by beating Dolph Ziggler for the NXT Championship.
In the main event segment, The Bloodline came to the ring and toasted their WrestleMania success. As the show went off the air, Reigns promised to reveal the next stage of his plan on SmackDown.
