– As noted before, last week’s Memorial Day edition of WWE RAW scored a 3.07 cable rating with 4.70 million viewers. Here’s a segment-by-segment breakdown:
Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler lost 44,000 viewers from the opener while the segment with Alberto Del Rio talking about Big Show gained 41,000 back. Kelly Kelly & Eve Torres vs. The Bella Twins then gained 23,000 viewers.
Michael Cole and Alex Riley’s segment, which led to The Miz and Riley brawling, gained 315,000 viewers. This is lower than usual for a top of the hour segment, bringing the rating to a 3.20. Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk lost 213,000 viewers, which is actually better than usual for that time slot.
Kharma’s speech gained 210,000 viewers, which is higher than usual for that time slot. Evan Bourne and Jack Swagger’s rematch lost 53,000 viewers, which actually isn’t bad for that time slot, considering the time of the segment and the two Superstars involved. The main event of R-Truth vs. John Cena gained 615,000 viewers, giving the show a 3.47 overrun rating.
