Monday’s RAW drew the highest total audience for the show since March 16, 2020, which was the first RAW without an audience due to COVID-19. RAW also drew the best key demo rating since April 4 of this year, which was the post-WrestleMania 38 show. There was some minor competition from MLB, but no major sports competition for RAW this week. This week’s RAW viewership was up 17.31% from last week’s episode, while this week’s key demo rating was up 22% from last week.

Monday’s post-SummerSlam edition of RAW aired live from the Toyota Center in Houston, TX, and had the following line-up advertised ahead of time – SummerSlam fallout, Ciampa vs. Gable vs. Dolph Ziggler and The Miz vs. AJ Styles vs. Mustafa Ali to determine the new #1 contender to WWE United States Champion Bobby Lashley, plus The Mysterios vs. Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos, which was the main event.
