Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics noted that the viewership for the August 30 show was the third-highest since the return to touring, as it only ranks behind the post-SummerSlam episode and the July 19 episode, which marked the red brand’s first show with live fans back since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This week’s episode featured Damian Priest defending the WWE United States Championship against Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. In the main event, RK-Bro retained when they put the RAW Tag Team Championship against WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and MVP.
