Bad Sign For This Week's WWE RAW Viewership?, Big TV Competition For Upcoming RAW

- As noted, ratings for last night's WWE RAW will be delayed until Wednesday due to the Christmas holiday.

However, Deadline reports that the Cincinnati Bengals vs. Denver Broncos Monday Night Football game scored a season-high 10.5 overnight rating. The MNF season finale also drew a huge 44.2 overnight rating in the Cincinnati market and a 42.0 in the Denver market. It will be very interesting to see how Vince McMahon, John Cena and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns did up against big competition from the NFL.


It will also be interesting to see what WWE announces for the January 11th RAW from New Orleans. RAW will face huge competition that night as the College Football National Championship game airs on ESPN at 8:30pm EST.

As noted, WWE announced Sheamus vs. Reigns with the title on the line and Vince as special referee for next week's RAW from San Antonio.
