Last Time when Raw went up against an NFL Wild Card playoff game, the WWE’s Monday night immolation did unexpectedly well.
But no offense to the LA Rams, Arizona Cardinals and their suckers, but they ’re not America’s Team and The scapegoat does n’t play for either of them.
That’s what Raw was over against this time, and despite not being a close game, the Dallas cowhands win over Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay rovers was the most watched NFL playoff game of the century.
According to Showbuzz Daily, Boys Bucs actually finished with indeed better figures than the overnights the Mouse House was touting —31.1 million observers across ABC, ESPN & ESPN 2, to be exact. It had a6.92 conditions share of 18- 49 time pasts, too.
So what did that mean for pro wrestling?

Hour Two1.54 million/.44
Hour Three1.37 million/.37
Raw will be free and clear of football for a while now. We ’ll see if that, combined with Mumble Season and the Road to WrestleMania 39, means bigger figures.
Author’s note Between some interruptions with Showbuzz, and the deluge of other news of late, we missed quite a many conditions reports this time. But we ’ll look to stay on track from then on out.
