Monday’s WWE Raw scored a 2.47 rating, up from the 2.33 rating the show drew last week. Raw averaged up million viewers, up from the 3.377 million average from last week.
Powell’s POV: Good numbers from WWE with John Cena returning and Vince McMahon making his second appearance on television in three weeks. This was Raw’s final battle with Monday Night Football until next season. The Broncos vs. Bengals game delivered 15.8 million viewers for ESPN, so WWE had strong competition. WWE will not have any football competition next week, but they still have to face the college football national championship game on January 11. The December 29, 2014 edition of Raw delivered a 2.57 rating with 3.631 million viewers.
