Raw Breakdown: Comparison To WM27 Go-Home Show, Rock/Cena



The go-home WrestleMania 28 episode of WWE’s RAW Supershow scored a 3.05 cable rating with 4.44 million viewers – a disappointment to WWE officials.

 

In comparison, the WrestleMania 27 go-home show which also featured The Rock and John Cena did a 3.84 cable rating with 5.89 million viewers. This year’s go-home show had a 21% decline in ratings and a 25% decline in total viewers.

 

In the segment breakdown, Sheamus and Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan and Kane gained 239,000 viewers from the opener. Santino Marella vs. David Otunga and the video for Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Undertaker lost 32,000 viewers. Eve Torres vs. Kelly Kelly lost 246,000 more viewers.

 

The angle with CM Punk and Christian plus Chris Jericho’s interview and Brodus Clay vs. Curt Hawkins gained 132,000 viewers to a 2.96 rating – another bad number for the 10pm timeslot. Big Show vs. Primo lost 104,000 viewers and Mark Henry vs. The Great Khali plus the Team Laurinaitis vs. Team Long angle gained 362,000 viewers – which is good.

 

The closing angle with The Rock and John Cena gained 626,000 viewers and closed the show with a 3.57 overrun rating. Again, this is nothing special, especially for the go-home show of WWE’s self-proclaimed biggest pay-per-view in history.
