How Was This Week's WWE RAW Viewership With Roman Reigns' Announcement?

Monday's WWE RAW, featuring the final red brand hype for WWE's Evolution pay-per-view, drew 2.548 million viewers. This is up 6.3% from last week's 2.397 million viewers and the best viewership since the post-Hell In a Cell episode in mid-September.

This week's show featured a main event with Dean Ambrose and WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins winning the RAW Tag Team Titles from Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler plus an advertised appearance by DX. The show opened with Roman Reigns relinquishing the WWE Universal Title and announcing his battle with leukemia, which may have boosted interest and helped viewership in the first second hours as they were up more than usual.
