Something says this isn’t working so well. With less than a month to go before Money in the Bank, there’s not much left to do to set up the show on Monday Night Raw. We have the majority of the spots filled for the ladder matches and a good chunk of the rest of the card is set up as well. Therefore, what is there left to see with so much television to go? Well this week saw a bunch of matches of little consequence between people who had already qualified. How much of an audience did that draw?

Top 10 Raw moments: WWE Top 10, May 21, 2018

According to, this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw drew 2.668 million viewers and a .89 rating in the 18-49 demographic. These numbers are down 1% and 2.6% respectively from last week’s 2.741 million viewers and .9 demographic rating. It should be noted that last week’s show was taped from London, which traditionally means a smaller audience than usual. This week’s show had the lowest viewership since June 12, 2017, which had 2.542 million viewers. The show was headlined by Finn Balor vs. Braun Strowman.

Opinion: Are you surprised by this? There’s no reason you should be. Last night’s show offered nothing of note and was up against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Playoffs. There was nothing worth watching last night because, aside from a short four way match with Natalya qualifying for the women’s ladder match, very little substantial storyline advancement took place. Have fun over the next three episodes with mostly the same thing.
