wweraw

The August 19th WWE RAW did a 3.24 cable rating with 4.30 million viewers with the fallout from SummerSlam.

In the segment breakdown, the first segment with John Cena, Daniel Bryan and Stephanie McMahon opened with a strong 3.4 rating. Damien Sandow vs. Cody Rhodes lost around 530,000 viewers. Paul Heyman’s interview stayed even. Cameron and Naomi vs. AJ Lee and Layla lost around 135,000 viewers. Dolph Ziggler vs. The Shield gained around 500,000 viewers in the 9pm timeslot for a good 3.3 quarter rating.

Sin Cara vs. Alberto Del Rio stayed even, which is really good for that timeslot. Darren Young and Titus O’Neil vs. Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger gained around 250,000 viewers for a 3.5 rating. Considering who was in the match and the fact that it’s not at the normal top of the hour growth period, this shows that the Young story led to an increase in viewers. Big Show vs. The Shield lost around 265,000 viewers.

CM Punk’s promo with Paul Heyman and the brawl with Curtis Axel gained around 400,000 viewers for a strong 3.6 quarter rating. R-Truth vs. Bray Wyatt lost 550,000 viewers. The Usos vs. Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal lost another 265,000 viewers. Wade Barrett vs. The Miz gained around 135,000 viewers. The big main event angle with Triple H, the McMahons, Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan and The Shield gained around 670,000 viewers for a 3.6 overrun rating.

    Biggest gains were segments involving Punk, Ziggler, and Bryan. And only the Bryan segment you can try to make an argument that it wasn’t all him.

      i don’t think Curtis AXELS EQUALS RATINGS , SO CM PUNKS ANGLE WAS ABOUT CM PUNK BY FAR THE BEST OF THE NIGHT !!

      • Michael F

        Yea that’s what I meant. Punk and Ziggler you can make a 100 percent argument that it was all them. Bryan too except I am sure someone will have the ammo to come say “Well the segment had Orton and HHH too”
