wweraw2

We’re just now getting the breakdown for the August 26th episode of WWE RAW, which did a 3.07 cable rating and 4.19 million viewers.

In the segment breakdown, Fandango vs. Cody Rhodes stayed even with the opener. The Miz and Rhodes vs. Fandango and Damien Sandow lost around 275,000 viewers. CM Punk vs. Curtis Axel in the 9pm timeslot gained around 683,000 viewers for a 3.4 quarter rating, which are very good numbers.

Brie Bella vs. Natalya with the AJ Lee pipebomb promo lost 545,000 viewers, which is pretty bad. Alberto Del Rio vs. Rob Van Dam gained around 140,000 viewers. Christian vs. Randy Orton lost 140,000 viewers for a 3.0 quarter rating at 10pm, which is another terrible showing for that timeslot.

The Daniel Bryan promo where he painted Randy Orton’s Cadillac and then Triple H, Brad Maddox and Orton being mad about it, stayed even. Titus O’Neil vs. Jack Swagger lost 135,000 viewers. Daniel Bryan’s Gauntlet match against The Shield gained 1,092,000 viewers for a 3.7 quarter rating, which are excellent numbers.

    Of course they lost viewers for Brie Bella vs Natalya. Nobody wants to see that match, and nobody knew AJ was going to come out.
