They're still down from last year, but at least it isn't a total dive. And before people pooh-pooh the 2.3 million viewers for hour 3, hour 3 is a total death hour now with some hours this year hitting 2 million flat, I think one was even below 2 million or damn close to it. 2.3 million is nothing to sneeze at.

Drawing 2.3 million viewers in the 3rd hour is good for the standard of the time. Rollins' 3rd hour segments with Bryan, Styles, Zayn, etc have struggled to stay above 2 million in recent months.

WWE should push Lynch and Rollins into the background. And feature the Lashley/Strowman, the Club, and Undertaker more. That approach clearly worked this week.

That's the highest third hour in a long time and is a slight drop from the first hr. AJ-Ricochet was also announced late in the show. Idk how you got that no one cares, when they did that number along with held strong last week. The second hr increase was probably due to Taker. I'm surprised it drew that well.

Iím speaking colloquially of course. To me itís about retention. They usually drop 200k-300k viewers from H2 to H3 anyways. So the fact that they still dropped that much tells me that their win last night wasnít H1 or H3, but itís the fact that they did something in H1 to actually cause a big bump from H1 to H2. They still need to do a better of job of teasing something in the right way to curb that H3 drop.

And when was AJ / Rico being teased? Not until H3? I thought it started in H2 when that bigger audience was tuned in.

Yeah and they retained well last week... Meltzer even said that the main event matches had retained well (Rollins-Bryan and Ricochet-AJ). They did the rematch this week because it retained well last week. Idk when it was teased/announced, think it was in the second or third hr.

But that large audience (probably casuals) only tuned in for Taker as he was apparently teased from the start of the show and apparently stayed on TV for longer. I'm actually surprised Taker drew that well. Only thing that explains the big second hr.

Yeah and thatís basically my point. Itís a rematch (a very recent one) and therefore perhaps people didnít care to see it again for whatever reason. Obviously it was to set up an angle so either they didnít do a good job of communicating that or people knew it was to set up an angle and that just didnít interest them.

And Iím sure we all agree that even if giving away PPV worthy first time matchups is a way to retain viewers, itís probably not the best answer.

Taker tease was the draw. Hour 3 dropped 331,000 viewers from Hour 2. No surprise considering how piss poor the Becky's bitch and Maria's bitch segment was.

That third hour rating is REALLY good. This weeks hour 3 is almost as high as last weeks hour 1, and this week you had Undertaker being advertised so the 2nd hour is going to be inflated a bit.

In terms of the ratings they were getting, this was good but long term, this will amount to nothing if they can not consistently keep the rating afloat.
Taker in his full getup still looks exactly the same as he did in 2007. The intrigue in seeing the Undertaker live is still a factor. It's only when he gets in the ring to wrestle that the magic wears off. Hulk Hogan was supremely past his prime in 2006, but he was still the selling point for me to go to the last Raw I ever attended. I don't believe Hogan ever came back to Cleveland, so I got to see him for the last time in my hometown.

It's like seeing The Rolling Stones, Metallica, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, etc... People will still pay to see their favorite acts from when they were younger
