Charlotte facing Rhea from NXT isn't doing the numbers any favor. It's the main roster, pick the title from RAW/SD. Picking NXT is insulting to the entire main roster. Basically saying , they don't matter. What they should have done was for Ruby to feud with Charlotte on her comeback. Not Liv. Right the wrong from a couple years ago. The initial Ruby vs Charlotte they just dropped that like after two weeks. It was a perfect contrast of two people.

They had to pick NXT as it’s struggling with ratings on Wednesday.

WWE often makes decisions based on business, not creativity or logic. When you look at how NXT struggles on Wednesdays, then you will understand.

Black is getting some of the lowest viewed segments on RAW. Guy is only just getting over but barely, seems people don't wanna see his squashes anymore.

From WOR: RAW was the lowest rated episode, with no real competition ever. Segments like Aleister Black’s and the main event were significant drops. Meanwhile Charlotte/Rhea was one of the few positives of the show
They should've done a better job building the Triple Threat main event. An in ring segment in Hour 1 would've been good.

All three hours were the three most watched hours on Cable last night. Hour 3 way above 2.0 million. Kept the audience they had from hour 1 to a strong degree, too. Kind of surprised a meaningless 8 man tag held the audience at 2.2 million when Hour 1 did 2.4 and Hour 2 did 2.3. I guess people were interested in that 8 man tag.

The real damage was done last year, and they haven't recovered. From doing well over 3 million every week in 2018 to kerplunking almost a million regular viewers in 2019. Now it's just them limping along into gradual obscurity.

Down 5% from what was a horrid post RR ratings run last year. Not good that they can’t even beat last year’s disaster.
Last year had Rousey and Lynch as main storyline, Batista's return vs HHH, Brock vs Rollins and Reigns return from cancer so raw on paper should be far far hotter than.

This year has perennial midcard Drew McIntyre v Brock and Charlotte/Becky vs developmental talent as your top raw programs. Based on that down just 5% is massive success especially given no show on cable is up from where they were last year

Another bad number. This is the second year in a row where there is no Mania season bump, and this is now the first time ever where Raw ratings post-Royal Rumble are worse than the lead up to the Royal Rumble. Last year, Raw bounced back after this thanks to Reigns return from cancer, so the drop compared to last year will be even more pronounced in the coming weeks.

It may be time for them to bring Triple H back at least and get some kind of big feud started for him. Raw has no stars outside of Brock, and he's stuck in a feud with a nobody at the moment.

Fantastic to see.

They haven't even recovered from the last Nitro in 2001 and have been sinking into obscurity since.

Shit, move RAW to Tuesday and let's have XFL Monday Night Football!
I've been wondering, and perhaps I'm just being silly, that VKM sees the writing on the wall and has moved onto XFL because he thinks it'll outlast the WWE?
