It was the night after a PPV, but despite that, Raw set a record low for a non-holiday episode with 2.05 million viewers. The previous low was 2.06 million viewers back in November.
The show featured a Lashley proposing to Lana, a Gauntlet Match for a U.S. Title shot that ended in a no-contest, and Randy Orton beating AJ Styles.
Raw hasn’t been must-see TV for a long time, and that was meant to change when Paul Heyman was made Executive Director. Unfortunately, it’s been a case of meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
It’s very likely that with next week’s episode being taped and going against the Vikings vs. Packers game, we could see a further decrease.
