WWE has struggled to retain the same audience they had seven months ago when the pandemic hit. They are slowly regaining ground, but it’s a difficult hill to climb. It seems to be working somewhat better in Canada.
It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that RAW drew 266,900 viewers in Canada. That doesn’t seem like a ton, but 155,400 of those viewers were in the 25-54 demographic. This is a big improvement.
It was noted that the number WWE drew for RAW was “almost like the old days.” SmackDown didn’t draw nearly as well though. They only captured 185,700 viewers with 122,000 f those in the 25-54 age group.
Both of the main roster shows are doing far better than NXT is in Canada. The black and gold brand’s show drew 66,6000 viewers with only 30,500 of those in the 25-54 age demographic.
For comparison, RAW drew 1.822 million viewers in America’s overnight ratings this week.
