Monday’s episode of Raw saw a small drop from last week with the show averaging 2,210,000 viewers on the USA Network.

They were down approximately 3% from last week, while the Monday Night Football game dropped 12.5% from last week.

It was Raw’s fifth-lowest average audience of 2019.

Raw started with 2.372 million viewers in the first hour and dropped almost 7% in the second hour down to 2.213 million viewers. The show experienced another drop of 7.5% in the third hour meaning the show declined 14% from the first to the final hour.

The show built up to a Clash of Champions rematch between Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman and also featured the advertised fatal five-way that was saved for the third hour where Rey Mysterio defeated Robert Roode, AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Ricochet.

The Monday Night Football featured the Chicago against Washington that attracted 10,327,000 viewers and was down from last week’s game that averaged 11.797 million.

Next week’s game features the Pittsburgh Steelers against the Cincinnati Bengals and goes against the “season premiere” of Raw with appearances from Brock Lesnar, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, and a Universal title match between Seth Rollins and Rey Mysterio advertised.

Compared to this week in 2018, Raw was down 6% year-to-year while Monday Night Football was down 14% with last year’s game featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
