– Monday’s WWE RAW, featuring Braun Strowman winning a tag team battle royal as the main event, drew 3.352 million viewers. This is up 8% from last week’s 3.099 million viewers and is the best viewership since the post-Royal Rumble episode in late January. This week’s show featured advertised appearances by Ronda Rousey and WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar but they did not appear.
For this week’s show, the first hour drew 3.351 million viewers (last week’s hour 1 – 3.302 million), the second hour drew 3.429 million viewers (last week’s hour 2 – 3.267 million) and the final hour drew 3.275 million viewers (last week’s hour 3 – 2.729 million).
– Below is video of new WWE United States Champion Randy Orton talking to Sam Roberts and Renee Young. Orton admits Jinder Mahal gets under his skin a bit but says Bobby Roode hasn’t been here long enough to have that same opportunity. Orton says if Roode does start getting under his skin, he will find his name on the same list as Jinder. Orton gives props to Roode and says he has the upmost respect for him. Regarding WrestleMania 34, Orton acknowledges that there is a lot of sign pointing going on and says it’s always nice going into WrestleMania with a title around your waist. Orton says he’s shouldering the weight of having this title and he wants to represent it the best he can, and that’s what he plans on doing.
