Going up against the toughest competition that he will face until he stands across from the Baltimore Ravens' defense on Nov. 29, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger more than held his own.
With Roethlisberger as guest host of Raw Monday night, the show held up remarkably well going head-to-head with the "Monday Night Football" game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers on ESPN that was the most-watched show in cable television history.
Raw did a 3.3 rating, which was up from the 3.1 rating of last week's show that was hosted by Rev. Al Sharpton. WWE has to be very happy with that number.
It looks as if Steeler Nation was more interested in seeing their QB ham it up with WWE talent than watching Brett Favre's grudge match against his former team.
