Will Raw sink or swim tonight?


It will be interesting to see how WWE tackles tonight’s Monday Night Raw as it tries to rebound from the lowest number in nearly two decades and a 2.16 cable rating that surely must have rang the alarm bells at WWE Headquarters.

Only 2,964,000 viewers tuned in last week to see the fallout from the Survivor Series and new champion Sheamus. The show lost 328,000 viewers from the previous week and nearly half a million from hour one to hour three. Hour two and three did not break the 3 million viewers mark.

PWInsider.com is reporting that Ric Flair is in the building and is written into the script to further the angle between Paige and the Divas champion Charlotte. The WWE.COM 5 point Raw preview does not list any matches yet and it pushes the angles with Reigns, Ambrose, Wyatts, New Day, and the Divas title picture.
