RAW viewership takes a hit; What Rousey learned from WWE Submitted by Aaron Rift on 02/04/2020 at 05:37 PM
- This week's edition of WWE RAW saw a 10% decline in overall viewership and a 12% decline in the 18-49 demo. RAW did 2.168 million viewers which was down from last week's 2.402 million viewers. Despite the viewership decline, RAW ranked in first place on cable for the evening.
- In a recent YouTube video with Steve-O of Jackass fame, Ronda Rousey talked about what she learned during her WWE run:
“What I learned in the WWE is you have to put over, if you’re going to drop the title, you gotta put the next person over on the way out, because you have to keep that momentum going and make that title mean something, and if I just retired undefeated and left all those girls there, they would have had no credibility because I didn’t give them any. The way everything ended up was the best it could have been for the division because they got to take my credibility and run with it instead of letting me run away with it. That might have been what I wanted selfishly but what I wanted most is for the division and the sport to succeed and so what happened was what needed to happen, and it took me taking my identity away from just being a fighter to realize that.”
