WWE Raw Viewership: Despite announcing a stellar triple-threat main-event a week before, WWE Raw Viewership has reached a new low. It was announced last week that Drew McIntyre, AJ Styles, and Randy Orton would collide in a triple-threat match in a quest to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match. But at the last moment, Randy Orton had to miss out with Riddle replacing him. The match was expected to draw heavy audiences but failed dramatically on the viewers’ chart.

WWE Raw Viewership: As reported by John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, WWE Raw drew an average of 1.57 million viewers on the USA Network. These numbers are down from 8.7% from the last week’s viewers of 1.719 million. The 18-49 key demographic rating has been missing this week, but last week, the show drew a 0.49 key demo rating.

WWE Raw Viewership: Bobby Lashley’s absence saw a ridiculous dip in WWE Raw viewership this week

This week’s numbers are the second-lowest of the year for the Red Brand, with the lowest being on the Memorial Day episode. One of the primary reasons for this week’s blip could be the NBA playoffs and also the All-Mighty WWE Champion Bobby Lashley’s absence. The Playoffs gave stiff competition to the show, which resulted in a downward shift in the viewership charts.
