The final edition of Raw for 2018 will is set to take place New Year’s Eve (Dec 31), which is traditionally one of the worst nights to broadcast on television due to all the celebrations going on across the country.
Given talent had to work over Christmas and New Years Eve last year and the widespread criticism that came with it, WWE has taken the decision to hold a Friday night edition of WWE Raw for the final episode of the year, but right now it is unknown if it will air live or be taped to air on New Year's Eve.
If WWE does decide to air the broadcast on New Year's Eve this ratings will no doubt be among the lowest of the year.
