RAW Viewership Increases Following Extreme Rules PPV
Monday's RAW, featuring fallout from Extreme Rules, drew an average of 2.453 million viewers.

This is up 4.3% from last week's 2.352 million viewers and is the third best audience for the show since the Superstar Shakeup in April.

This week's RAW also featured an appearance by new WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, plus a Cross Brand All-Star Top 10 Battle Royal as the main event, and a Women's Fatal 4 Way Elimination Match advertised ahead of time. There seemed to be more buzz going into this week's show due to new Executive Director Paul Heyman reportedly settling into his behind-the-scenes role this week.

For this week's show, the first hour drew 2.379 million viewers (last week's hour 1 - 2.384 million), the second hour drew 2.503 million viewers (last week's hour 2 - 2.349 million) and the final hour drew 2.478 million viewers (last week's hour 3 - 2.322 million).
