• Surprising Outcome For This Week’s RAW Segment
On this week’s RAW, WWE aired the Men’s Royal Rumble 2020 match in full length.
While fans on Social Media complained about WWE airing old footage on RAW and not being interested in re-watching the match, that’s not what majority of the fans thought.
According to the Wrestling Observer, the Royal Rumble match helped boost RAW’s rating big time (as opposed to people thinking it didn’t).
RAW opened with their normal opening viewership number, then gained big time viewers when the Rumble match began and the viewership suddenly collapsed after the match was over.
This week’s RAW from the WWE Performance Center drew 2.34 million viewers, which is up from previous week’s 2.16 million viewers.
