Flair’s RAW Segment Draws Huge, Judgment Day Preview, RAW

Ryan Clark


Although WWE is upset that RAW only did a 3.92 rating (hourly ratings were 3.77 and 4.05), the quarter hour ratings that were released tell an interesting story. The show had a slow build in viewership during the night – peaking with a 3.99 for the final quarter hour and a 4.7 for the overrun.

With WrestleMania behind us and Backlash later this month, WWE has already starting promoting their May 18th PPV event – JUDGEMENT DAY. Here’s their synopsis of the event: Judgment Day is upon us. DonĂ¢<80><99>t miss Triple H, John Cena, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Undertaker, Batista, and all your favorite Superstars as they face the consequences of their actions at Judgment Day, Sunday, May 18th live at 8pm ET/5pm PT, only on Pay-Per-View. The PPV poster features Triple H in an orange prison jumpsuit walking down a cellblock with other prisoners in the background.

Live Audio Wrestling, part of The Fight Network, in their daily news update on Pro Wrestling today has the Canadian numbers for Raw on The Score from Monday night, reporting that the show did 289,000 viewers, one of the highest numbers the show has done since the move from TSN. It is the third news item from the top in the daily report. It also gives a possible explanation as to why the USA Network number was so low, as Nelson has a new formula for calculating DVR numbers and it may be the reason for the low numbers.

A charity auction is being held and the winner will not only get the chance to hang out with Traci Brooks, Eric Young, James Storm and Disco Inferno but they will also get to play pool with former Olympic Skater Tonya Harding. Just watch out for any Cue shots to the knee cap.
