This week, WWE Raw’s historic 1,000th episode shattered records for viewership and online engagement. With more than 6 million viewers, the program was the most-watched Raw in history.
According to Newsday, the landmark episode was Monday’s most watched program on cable and the most watched program on all television (broadcast and cable) among male viewers.
Raw made waves on the World Wide Web, too. Across the globe, social media sites were abuzz with conversations about wrestling. In fact, Newsday reports that social activity for Monday Night Raw was higher than the Top 10 broadcast shows combined.
The episode inspired 52 worldwide Twitter trends and thousands of tweets. In fact, WWE’s hashtag poll, "Should AJ say 'I Do or I Don't,'" elicited an astounding 9,000 tweets per minute.
BlueFin Labs named Monday Night Raw's 1,000th episode the fourth most social series programming episode of all time - behind only the most popular episodes of the uber-successful American Idol and Pretty Little Liars.
According to Bleacher Report, the episode’s highlights included a DX reunion, CM Punk’s attack on The Rock, and AJ’s decision to become the general manager of Raw.
