Last night's episode of Monday Night Raw emanated from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois and was, for all intents and purposes, the Dean Ambrose Show. He's in the midst of a strong push as the number two babyface in the company thanks to an injury suffered by Roman Reigns and WWE is giving him the ball to see how far he can run with it, at least in the short term.
So far so good.
For the first time since the NFL kicked off its Monday Night Football schedule, Raw averaged over 4 million viewers (4.04, to be exact). That's up from 3.87 million last week.
Even better, the hourly breakdown shows where the interest was, and it was paid off in the Ambrose chase for the Money in the Bank briefcase:
Hour one: 4.01 million
Hour two: 4.22 million
Hour three: 3.88 million
Raw is Ambrose, folks.
