The last two weeks, the ratings for Raw and Smackdown were both improved and so were the demographic distribution which was the first sign of improvement in months. According to Showbuzz Daily, the average viewership was down in all three hours this week but the third hour had the highest viewership.

The third hour of the show was centered around the main event match. Dolph Ziggler defended his WWE Intercontinental Championship in a rematch against Seth Rollins.
