While there is no final word backstage on who is going to team up with Brothers of Destruction, rumors are abound that the WWE Hall of Famer Sting may appear. If he is cleared to wrestle after the injuries he suffered at Night of Champions, he might become the tag team partner in this Dream Team to take on the Wyatt Family at Survivor Series.

1

Monday’s WWE RAW set a new 18-year low in viewrship as it drew 3.248 mn viewers, down from the last week’s 3.354 mn viewers, and slightly down from the previous low of 3.27 million viewers for the 10/12 show. It is the lowest non-holiday viewership since WWE RAW became a three hours show. The final rating for the show is 2.32 which is down from last week’s 2.46.

This show saw a dip in ratings with the show low of 3.18 coming in the second hour, with the Survivor Series match in the third hour failing to increase the viewership in a significant way. The lack of interest in this week’s show can be attributed to the absence of big names like John Cena and Brock Lesnar.

Following is the hour by hour data:

8 p.m. 3.38 million viewers

9 p.m. 3.18 million viewers

10 p.m. 3.19 million viewers
