RAW Draws Lowest Rating Of The Year, SmackDown Dark Match Main Event

– The dark main event that took place after Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown tapings from Little Rock saw Dean Ambrose and Sheamus defeat Seth Rollins and Kane. Sheamus got the pin on Kane after Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds on Kane and chased Rollins off.

– The final rating for Monday’s RAW is in and it paints a bleak picture for WWE’s flagship program. Despite the fact that viewership was actually up this week, the show did a 2.69 rating, the lowest of the year.

The fact that total viewership (3.879 million) was up but the rating was down means that a lot of fans sampled the show (you don’t have to watch for long to be counted as a “viewer”) but a lot of the viewers did not stick around for long.
