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 February 28th episode of Monday Night Raw drew 1,753,000 viewers. This included 611,000 in the 18-49 year-old demographic. A rating of 0.47.
This is down on the previous week, where Raw pulled in 1,825,000 viewers with a 0.51 rating in the 18-49-year-old demographic as WWE’s flagship returned to the USA Network after two weeks on Syfy.
The figure represents the lowest viewership on the USA Network since January 17th.
The February 28th episode of Monday Night Raw was headlined by the big reveal over who would be stepping up to face Edge at WrestleMania 38. The previous week, the WWE Hall of Famer laid out an open challenge to anyone on the roster to meet on him on the ‘Grandest Stage of the All.’
With Edge in the ring hyping up the crowd, it was former World Champion AJ Styles who answered the challenge and joined him in the ring. However, while many fans expected the fair to shake hands, Edge insulted Styles before delivering a vicious beatdown which ended with a Con-Chair-To, not once, but twice.
Earlier on the show, Finn Balor defeated Damian Priest to win the United States Championship. Although the action didn’t stop with the final bell. As Balor celebrated, Priest hit out at the fans, turning heel and attacking Balor once more, launching how over the announce desk with a Razor’s Edge.
Elsewhere, Kevin Owens continued taking shots at Texas, while the Street Profits picked up a win over RK-Bro.
