- As noted before, the April 2nd RAW Supershow on the night after WrestleMania 28 drew a 3.42 cable rating with 5.02 million viewers. In comparison, the RAW in 2011 the night after WrestleMania 27 drew a 3.84 cable rating and 5.62 million viewers.

In the segment breakdown, The Rock opened the show at a 3.6 quarter rating, which is nothing special for the first segment following WrestleMania. Jack Swagger vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Santino Marella lost 295,000 viewers while Alex Riley vs. Lord Tensai in his debut stayed even.

Mark Henry vs. CM Punk gained 148,000 viewers which is bad for that timeslot. The angle with Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio lost 297,000 viewers, which isn’t a bad drop for that part of the show. Kofi Kingston vs. Cody Rhodes stayed even while The Miz vs. Zack Ryder lost 150,000 viewers.

The final segment with John Cena and Brock Lesnar’s return gained 1,036,000 viewers for a 3.9 quarter-rating in the overrun. This was one of the best gain segments of the past few months.

    It doesnt mean that ppl are watching less now then they use to, its because more people have access to recording the program then they have before. Were all too busy and not bothered for commercials so this way u watch it when u want and u can fast forward :) i usually use it mainly for Smackdown lol

    As excited as I am for the Lesnar program, and as hyped as I was because the crowd was the best in years (not an overstatement), I am a bit disheartened that they couldn’t crack a 4.0 after Mania. I really hope Lesnar brings in ratings…

    Brick Lesnar sucks & his overrated.
    Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit MADE him look great.

    Also, he sold out on the fans when he left.
