Final 2019 WWE Backstage episode pulls low ratings

Not a good way to end the decade.

In honor of WrestleMania 36, pro wrestling is taking over the month of March at AIPT with WrestleMonth! Check back every day for new reviews, essays, and looks back at classic moments in both WWE and AEW!

WWE Backstage didn’t leave 2019 on the best of terms. The program’s final show of the decade pulled in a measly 97,000 viewers, the third-lowest number of viewers since the show premiered, which is nearly half of its peak viewership.

Is the holiday to blame? Hard to say, as the Christmas Eve show drew a healthy number at 153,000 viewers.

The show peaked on Nov. 19 with CM Punk’s debut, pulling in 180,000 viewers, two weeks after it’s record low viewership on Nov. 6 at 50,000.

This week’s episode featured a special highlight of the top 5 matches of 2019.

Below is WWE Backstage’s 2019 viewership numbers:

October 15: 597,000 viewers with a 0.20 rating
October 25: 426,000 viewers with a 0.14 rating
November 5: 49,000 viewers with a 0.02 rating (Official premiere)
November 12: 100,000 viewers with a 0.04 rating

CM Punk was once again missing from the show this week, but not to worry, he returns Jan. 21.
