This Week’s RAW Rating Is In + Randy Orton Injured
– This week’s WWE RAW did a 2.67 (2.7) cable rating, up from last week’s low 2.55 (2.6) cable rating. The show drew 3,764,000 viewers, up from the low 3,437,000 viewers last week. Hour one of the show drew 3,743,000 viewers, hour two drew 3,876,000 viewers and hour three drew 3,672,000 viewers. The numbers were likely helped by the Monday Night Football game turning into an early blowout and drawing under 15 million viewers. This was the 17th straight week that viewership declined from hour two to hour three.
– As part of WWE’s Tribute to the Troops events, Sheamus, Kaitlyn, David Otunga, The Prime Time Players and Alicia Fox participated in a fitness and sports challenge cup at Waterfront Athletic Complex. Click here to view photos.
– Randy Orton reportedly suffered a wrist injury at the Sunday taping of the Tribute to the Troops special. He was held off of RAW Monday night, but is still being advertised for tonight’s SmackDown tapings. No word on how severe the injury is but it doesn’t appear like he’ll miss much time as of this writing.
