The WWE Raw Ratings were not all that great come the final hour of Raw

WWE Raw was hit by Covid-19 as Drew McIntyre could not feature on the show since he was infected by the virus.

However, the champion was still able to speak to the fans and confirmed he was to face Goldberg at the Royal Rumble.

Surprisingly, even Goldberg didn’t feature on the show and many talents had to wrestle twice on the night.

The main event was a bit of a strange one too. Randy Orton challenge Triple H to a fight. That was also invaded by Alexa Bliss as she sent a fireball to the Viper’s face in all this.

There really wasn’t much to speak about on Raw, apart from the fireball and Ric Flair trying to cozy up with Lacey Evans.

WWE Raw ratings

The first hour of Raw started strong with 2.024million viewers, according to Showbuzz Daily. However, the ratings started to drop from the second hour onwards.

The second hour got in 1.802m and the third got in only 1.632m viewers for the show. This was an average of 1.819m viewers over the three hours and it was down from 2.128m viewers Raw Legends Night got.

Of course, WWE was hit hard thanks to the Ohio State vs Alabama college football game on the same evening.

As far as the demos goes, WWE got 0.62, 0.53 and 0.51 over the three hours. This was another poor outing for Raw but given that many talents didn’t feature and that McIntyre tested positive for Covid-19, it will be interesting to see what they do next week.
