WWE had to move their television shows to the Performance Center when they needed to move to a zero fan environment. Their weekly Friday Night SmackDown show on FOX hasn’t dipped much in viewership. The same cannot be said for Raw on the USA Network.
During WWE’s financial call, Vince McMahon addressed Raw’s slumping ratings. The red brand’s show has dipped below 2 million average viewers for weeks now which is a bad trend.
McMahon blamed the slumping ratings on the need to get new Superstars over. This is a process that takes time. The lack of Brock Lesnar was also mentioned.
“It’s suffered because we bring in a lot of new talent into Raw and it takes a lot to get new talent over. We don’t have Brock Lesnar any longer and it takes a lot of time to get that new talent over.”
Brock Lesnar will be back in WWE, but he left after WrestleMania when Drew McIntyre won the WWE Title. This is a time for transition in a lot of ways. Hopefully, WWE will be able to figure something out to bring more interest to their weekly Monday show.
What can WWE to fix Raw’s viewership? Sound off in our new and improved comments section below!
