7/2 RAW Breakdown: DDP’s Return, Del Rio’s Attack On Sin Cara



As mentioned before, the WWE RAW Supershow on July 2nd scored a 3.18 cable rating with 4.71 million viewers.

In the segment breakdown, David Otunga, Cody Rhodes, Titus O’Neil and Darren Young vs. Santino Marella, R-Truth, Kofi Kingston and Christian lost 467,000 viewers from the opener. The big surprise of the show was Alberto Del Rio’s beatdown on Sin Cara, which gained 584,000 viewers – a 14% growth among teenage boys and 23% among Men 18-49.

The Paul Heyman interview and first part of Sheamus and AJ Lee vs. Vickie Guerrero and Dolph Ziggler lost 383,000 viewers. The match itself plus Heath Slater vs. Doink the Clown gained 234,000 viewers – a weak number for the 10pm timeslot. Diamond Dallas Page laying out Heath Slater and Kane vs. Big Show in a No DQ Match lost 69,000 viewers, which is very good for that time period of the show. So far out of the recent Legend returns, Vader’s return has done the best by far.

Tensai vs. Tyson Kidd lost 307,000 viewers while the main event with John Cena and CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan and CM Punk gained 684,000 viewers and peaked with a 3.47 rating for the overrun.
