The first hour drew 4.672 million viewers, the second hour drew 4.620 million viewers and the third hour drew 4.438 million viewers.
– Jerry Lawler said on RAW that the Batista vs. Daniel Bryan match was their first time facing each other but they wrestled on RAW back in May of 2010.
– It was pitched at one point to have Bad News Barrett come out and do a “bad news” segment on CM Punk at Monday night’s RAW in Chicago but it was nixed.
– There are people within WWE that feel CM Punk is probably not coming back and that he’s mentally done with wrestling. We’ll have more on this later.
