Raw started lower than last week, but declined far less during the show, and ended up at 3.07 million viewers, down one percent from last week.
It was the least-watched Monday Raw that didn't go up against a major sports event or fall on a major holiday, dating back to 1997.
Unlike the Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks title match, which was a huge ratings hit as the main event, the lone ratings positive out of Charlotte vs. Bayley is that the third hour number didn't fall at the same pace as it usually does.
Raw was third for the night on cable, trailing only the O'Reilly Factor (4.18 million viewers) and Tucker Carlson Tonight (3.47 million viewers), the best placing Raw has had on cable of late.
The three hours were:
- 8 p.m. 3.20 million viewers
- 9 p.m. 3.15 million viewers
- 10 p.m. 2.91 million viewers
For a comparison, last week's three hours were 3.34 million, 3.17 million, and 2.84 million.
