As noted before, the May 9th episode of WWE RAW on the USA Network did a 3.18 cable rating with 4.95 million viewers. Here’s a ratings breakdown: Kelly Kelly and Eve Torres vs. The Bella Twins with Kharma’s attack lost 177,000 viewers from the opener. Kane vs. Mason Ryan and Dolph Ziggler vs. Santino Marella lost another 353,000 viewers.
Backstage segments going into Alex Riley vs. John Cena gained 104,000 viewers while the match itself gained another 685,000 viewers. You could say that Riley did better than The Miz usually does in the same spot. The segment with Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler and Jack Swagger lost 172,000 viewers, which isn’t that bad for the time slot. Swagger vs. Kofi Kingston for the US Title lost 353,000 more viewers and the main event of Miz vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Rey Mysterio gained 736,000 viewers to bring the overrun to a 3.57.
