It was announced on Friday that Hulk Hogan would be on last night’s WWE Monday Night Raw. WWE didn’t announce who else would be returning, but fans were under the assumption that Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker would be returning on the show as well.
The fans were right and they tuned in as Raw drew a 3.31 rating with an average of 4.65 million viewers. That was up from last week’s show as that show scored a 3.08 rating with an average of 4.36 million viewers.
The first hour which opened with the return of Hogan and featured a match between Batista and Alberto Del Rio followed by a Randy Orton promo averaged 4.89 million viewers, the second hour featured the John Cena/Bray Wyatt segment and the beginning of the Daniel Bryan vs Kane match averaged 4.78 million viewers. The final hour featured the rest of the Bryan/Kane match and the show closing segment with Lesnar and The Undertaker averaged 4.31 million viewers.
Are you surprised the rating wasn’t higher or was it right where you expected?
