Things are not looking up for WWE as this past Monday’s edition of RAW only did a 3.3 cable rating. That number is way down from last week’s 3.9 which was helped with the announcement of Vince McMahon’s bastard son. The first hour did a 3.2 with the second hour doing a 3.5.

There should definitely be some concern backstage in WWE with the number as the show was after a pay-per-view. Shows after pay-per-views usually do higher ratings because people that didn’t order the PPV usually tune in to find out what happened.

The rating did not come without competition as Monday Night Football on ESPN which featured the Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles did a 9.1 cable rating.
