WWE Raw has been on for more than 25 years and the ratings have somewhat been decent for the majority of its lifetime.

However, ratings started to dip dangerously low earlier this year and now we may have seen its lowest point yet.

As reported by NoDQ.com, the Christmas Eve edition of Monday Night Raw only averaged 1.775 million viewers. This is down from the live Christmas show last year which earned 2,706 million back in 2017.

Hour one only drew 1.752 million viewers, the second hour drew 1.789 million viewers while the third hour only garnered 1.784 million viewers.

It's worth mentioning the show was pre-taped over a week ago so that's the main reason the ratings were so low.

To my knowledge, I think this is the first time in history that a new episode of Raw drew under 2 million viewers in every hour. It was a Holiday episode so WWE shouldn't be too worried.

That being said though, WWE still needs to freshen its image in order to entice more people to watch the show.

Ratings have been dropping earlier this year and even live attendance for WWE house shows are lower than in past years too.

It's disappointing as it seems like a star as big as Ronda Rousey cannot even push the numbers in a positive light.

Maybe more viewers will return to watch the product when the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 35 kicks off in early 2019.

The rating for Smackdown Live will be shared later this week. It too was a pre-taped show so the number is expected to be low again.
