Dio Maddin And Vic Joseph On Joining The RAW Announce Team, NXT Viewership Down

Dio Maddin And Vic Joseph On Joining The RAW Announce Team, NXT Viewership Down
- The first hour of this week's NXT episode drew 1.006 million viewers on the USA Network, according to Showbuzz Daily.


This is down 14.7% from last week's USA Network premiere, which drew 1.179 million viewers and ranked #4 on the Cable Top 150, and #19 in viewership.

Like last week, the second hour of this week's episode aired on the WWE Network and viewership for that service is not available. Both hours of NXT will begin airing on the USA Network with next Wednesday's episode.

To compare this week's WWE TV viewership, Monday's RAW drew an average of 2.210 million viewers, down from last week's 2.272 million viewers. Tuesday's SmackDown drew 2.099 million viewers, up from last week's 2.064 million viewers.

- As noted earlier today, Monday's WWE RAW season premiere from Phoenix will see the new red brand announce team introduced - Vic Joseph, Dio Maddin and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler. The new SmackDown team will feature Michael Cole, Corey Graves and Renee Young, who currently call RAW.

Lawler has called RAW action in the past but this is a major move for Joseph and Maddin, who currently call the WWE 205 Live show with Aiden English.

Maddin, who was known as NXT Superstar Brennan Williams until recently, took to Twitter and said he's looking forward to entertaining the fans on RAW.

"Haha what the heck. Excited, nervous, and extremely blessed to have been given this opportunity. Not sure if I deserve it but I'm going to run with this ball until the wheels fall off. I'm looking forward to entertaining you," Maddin wrote.

Joseph also reacted to the news on Twitter and called it a dream come true.

He wrote, "I have never been more excited, nervous, prepared for anything in my life! Truly a dream come true! #RAW"
