The Worlds leading Wrestling company WWE is trying to provide content during this unpredictable time, but the fans didn’t tune in this week.
According to Showbuzz Daily, this week’s episode drew an average of 2 million viewers, the lowest number for Monday Night RAW in 2020. For comparison, last week’s show brought in 2.34 million, which not only was the first RAW to take place without the audience but was also a significant increase in the week prior, which averaged 2.16 million.
It’s hardly surprising that the ratings are struggling given the Global Situation which is happening right now, and hopefully the viewing figures will increase, once things get back to normal.
Whilst RAW failed to get the fans to tune in this week, the same can’t be said for ESPN which did very well with their own WWE content this week. With ESPN airing classic WrestleMania events for the next three weeks, this past Sunday’s airing of Wrestle Mania 30 drew 839,000 viewers according to F4W Online, the highest-rated programme on ESPN for the entire weekend.
Fans will remember that the 2014 show saw Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, and TheRock share the ring, Daniel Bryan finally defeats the Authority, as well as The Undertaker’s streak being conquered by Brock Lesnar, so it’s hardly surprising that fans tuned in to relive the truly historic event.
