WWE RAW has set a new record low for the July 5th edition of the show. The average viewership for the show was 1.472 million viewers. This is both the lowest rating in the history of the show and the first time that the rating has dropped below 1.5 million viewers in the shows history.
The numbers were obtained by Brandon Thurston from Wrestlenomics:
The previous record low for WWE RAW was 1.526 million viewers. The date for this episode was December 14th 2020. The key demographic of 18-49 was 3rd overall on July 5th, but was also the 3rd lowest on record.
The July 4th weekend is one reason why viewership is down, as nearly all TV ratings are lower during holiday weekends. However, WWE would not have expected a drop this low for the holiday weekend edition of the show.
The drop in viewership from the previous week is 6.24%, with the June 28th episode being watched by 1.570 million viewers.
The main event of RAW was a tag team match building towards the Money in the Bank pay per view. Bobby Lashley and MVP faced Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods. Lashley will defend his WWE Championship against Kingston at the event on July 18th.
