WWE News: RAW Rating Sees Slight Uptick, Reclaims #1 Ranking (8/13/18)

Published

on

The road to this coming Sunday’s SummerSlam continued last night with the final edition of Monday Night RAW before the big event. The red brand has been on a pretty good streak in the ratings over the past few weeks, even with a small decrease in viewers last week. So how did last night’s show do?

The numbers are now in and last night’s RAW that saw the return of Dean Ambrose, as well as a vicious attack by Brock Lesnar against Roman Reigns had a minor ratings increase from last week with a 2.825. While this is only a .74% increase over last week, it’s an increase nonetheless. Here’s how the red brand has done in the ratings the past four weeks:

  • July 23rd: 2.779
  • July 30th: 2.901
  • August 6th: 2.804
  • August 13th: 2.825

Last week’s RAW also saw the show drop slightly in the Cable Top 150 Rankings for the 18-49 demographic, however last night they jumped back into the number one spot:

  1. Monday Night RAW (9PM) – USA Network – 0.98
  2. *TIE* Monday Night RAW (8PM)/Love & Hip Hop Hollywood – 0.97
  3. Monday Night RAW (10PM) – USA Network – 0.95
  4. Teen Mom 2 Reunion – MTV – 0.69

EA’s Take: Such a small increase in ratings this week makes it really difficult to tell what exactly made the difference. While SummerSlam is certainly one of the more anticipated WWE pay-per-views every year, I think it’s been a little 50/50 for fans this year. At least on Twitter anyways, which isn’t always the best gauge on how people overall feel (because there’s way more negativity than you’ll get with the general public that includes your casuals). You can’t really pin the increase on Lesnar because while those in-the-know were aware he was scheduled, he was not advertised. Same goes for Dean Ambrose’s return, which some fans really lost their metaphorical s*** over (I am NOT one of them). I’m more interested to see what WWE can do as we head into the Fall season, which is again usually when we hit another lull before the calendar turns over and things begin ramping up for next year’s Royal Rumble. I’m also wondering if we get a bunch of NXT call-ups next week, which we’ve seen after SummerSlam in the past. Personally, I’m hoping not because the company never seems to have any long-terms plans for these. Just look at everyone brought up after WrestleMania back in April.

WWE News: Sin Cara Dealing With Injury, Possibly Facing Surgery

Published

on

Following an injury to SmackDown Live Superstar Tye Dillinger at a Live Event over the weekend (read about that here), today it looks like another WWE Superstar from the blue brand is dealing with an ailment of some sort.

Sin Cara has revealed via Instagram Story that he’s down in Birmingham, Alabama, which is of course where Dr. Jeffrey Dugas is located and where nearly all of the company’s performers go when there’s a likely surgery in their future:

Sin Cara has not competed since August 5th at a Live Event in Albany, Georgia when he defeated Aiden English. While there are no details on what exactly Sin Cara is dealing with, the fact that he is even in Birmingham is generally not a good sign. The Chairshot will provide further updates as they become available.
