If you build it, they’ll stay, at least for a week. After the NBA Finals wrapped up two weeks ago, it was fairly clear that the “Monday Night Raw” audience would come back, at least in part. That did indeed happen, but the question was how much of that audience would stick around for another viewing.

According to Showbuzz Daily, it seems that they did. This week’s episode of “Monday Night Raw”, drew 2.976 million viewers, down 4% from the previous week’s 3.102 million. Last night’s show was headlined by a six woman gauntlet match for the #1 contendership to the Raw Women’s Title.

Opinion: That has to be seen as a bit of a sigh of relief for WWE. The NBA certainly did a lot of damage to the show’s ratings and last week saw a return to form with basketball gone. Now, with one week under their belt, the fans are sticking around for the most part as these numbers are only slightly lower than what WWE had last week. In other words, the audience is back and seems to be staying, at least for now.
