WWE Monday Night Raw: Legends Night has drawn WWE it’s best rating for the red brand since March 16, 2020.

On Monday, January 4, 2021, Raw played host to a list of legends from the company’s past that included Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Tatanka and Mickie James to name just a few.

While some of these legends had a mere cameo backstage, others were more hands on in bouts such as Ric Flair who cost his daughter Charlotte and Asuka a match against Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans when he accidentally tripped his offspring.

Now, according to Showbuzz Daily, it has been revealed that the special edition of the red brand has drawn the show’s highest rating since March 2020 with an average of 2.128 million viewers. The impressive figure washes away memories of the previous week which only garnered 1.769 viewers.

Broken down, the first hour of Legends Night managed to attract 2.197 million of the overall figure with the second hour falling to 2.150 million, and the final hour which was headlined by Drew McIntyre vs. Keith Lee for the WWE Championship as well as Goldberg’s shock return to challenge the Scot to a bout at the Royal Rumble, managed 2.036 million people.

Raw’s rating landed it the twentieth spot for the evening on cable with it losing it out to shows such as The Ingraham Angle, Last Word, CNN Newsroom at 3pm and All In.

In the demos, WWE’s flagship show performed admirable also, attracting approximately 0.68 in the 18-49 section. This was more than the most watched show, Hannity, which only managed 0.31.
