WWE Looks At A Potential Goldberg Vs. Rusev Match, RAW Draws Near-Record Low Audience, RAW Top 10
- Coming out of last night's opening RAW segment, WWE posted this Fantasy Warfare video looking at a potential Rusev vs. Bill Goldberg match:
- Monday's WWE RAW, featuring Bill Goldberg in the opening segment, fallout from Hell In a Cell and Chris Jericho vs. WWE United States Champion Roman Reigns in the main event, drew 2.60 million viewers. This is down 8% from last week's 2.819 million viewers, however the show aired on Halloween, which is traditionally a bad night for RAW viewership.

RAW was #8 on cable for the night in viewership, behind the NFL's Monday Night Football, SportsCenter, The O'Reilly Factor, The Kelly File, On The Record, Hannity, Special Report and The Five. RAW was #3 in the 18-49 demographic, behind the NFL and SportsCenter.
The NFL drew 10.4 million viewers on cable last night.
