Hardys On Addiction And Past Demons (Video), New Low in RAW Viewership With Brock Lesnar's Return

- Monday's WWE RAW, featuring The Hardys vs. RAW Tag Team Champions Cesaro & Sheamus in the main event, drew 2.542 million viewers. This is down from last week's 2.994 million viewers and a new low for 2017.

The show also featured WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar returning in the opening segment, which was advertised ahead of time, and no appearances by top stars Roman Reigns or Finn Balor.

This marks the seventh straight week that RAW has averaged below 3 million viewers.

For this week's show, the first hour drew 2.769 million viewers, the second hour drew 2.522 million viewers and the final hour drew 2.335 million viewers.

RAW was #1 on cable for the night in viewership and #2 in the 18-49 demographic, behind Love & Hip-Hop. The NBA finals aired on network TV (ABC) and drew 19.2 million viewers in the 9pm hour and 20.6 million viewers in the final hour.

- Below is video from Corey Graves' interview with The Hardys on last night's "Bring It To The Table" episode on the WWE Network. Graves mentions how they both have had demons they battled in the past but they seemed focused & healthy now. Graves asks if it's a struggle being on the road with the WWE lifestyle once again. Matt Hardy says it's not for him as it was about learning and accepting the fact that you age. Matt looks back to the end of his last WWE run and says he kept working even though he was hurt and beat up. Matt says once he took time off and addressed his issues, he got healthy - physically, mentally and emotionally.

Jeff Hardy says temptation is now obsolete to him. He says he's been there, done that and was one of the lucky ones to survive it. Jeff says he just looks forward to going to work and then going home to see his family because he's doing this for them. He says there's no temptation to ever fall victim to addiction ever again. Matt says having kids did a lot for both of them and that's what they focus on now.
