WWE RAW Rating Up, Kevin Owens on WWE Main Event, Update on NFL Player Training with Booker T

The Rock and Lana

– We noted a while back that WWE Hall of Famer Booker T was working with former NFL player Brennan Williams of the Houston Texans, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New England Patriots. Using the name Marcellus Black, Williams will be making his pro wrestling debut for Booker’s Reality of Wrestling promotion on January 30th. ROW posted this promo for Williams, who was last signed by the Patriots in October but waived from the practice squad just two days after signing. Five days later the partnership with Booker was announced.

– As noted, Monday’s post-Royal Rumble WWE RAW episode drew 4.098 million viewers, up from last week’s 3.496 million viewers. The final rating for the show was a 2.93, up from last week’s 2.45 rating. This is the highest RAW rating going back to the post-WrestleMania 31 RAW in 2015.

– WWE taped the following matches tonight in Tampa for this week’s Main Event episode:

* Jack Swagger vs. Kevin Owens
* The Dudley Boyz vs. The Ascension
* Ryback vs. Rusev with Lana
