The ratings for this week’s episode of WWE RAW are in, and a pretty surprising match on the show seemingly drew quite a strong number overall.
According to information released by Wrestlenomics, quarter 8 of the show managed to get a 4% increase over the previous 15-minute stretch.
There was only one match during that time frame, which featured former NXT Superstar Xia Li taking on former NXT Women’s Champion Indi Hartwell.
Becky Lynch would appear during the post-match angle, which makes sense as she has been feuding with Li over prior weeks. Whether or not that contributed to the number is not confirmed, but it could certainly be a factor.
