As noted, this week’s WWE Raw, which took place on Christmas Day and featured the crowning of new WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe and the return of John Cena, averaged 2.704 million viewers. Despite this week’s Raw number being down from last week’s number, it was still solid given the major holiday.
According to ShowBuzz Daily, this week’s WWE Smackdown, which also aired live from Chicago, the night after Christmas, averaged 2.656 million viewers, which is only slightly less than what Raw averaged this week. WWE Smackdown viewership this week was up from last week’s 2.578 million viewership average, for a show which featured WWE Clash of Champions PPV fallout.
