- As noted before, the August 6th WWE RAW did a 3.09 cable rating with 4.37 million viewers. The three hours did ratings of 2.80, 3.26 and 3.19. There were no big segments this week and there was a fade in the third hour with the peak being the segment with Brock Lesnar, Triple H and Shawn Michaels.

In the segment breakdown, CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio gained 123,000 viewers. Christian vs. Alberto Del Rio gained another 123,000 viewers. Randy Orton vs. Big Show at the top of the hour gained 480,000 viewers. Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks vs. Ryback plus Titus O’Neil and Darren Young vs. Primo and Epico gained 78,000 viewers. Considering the talents in those few segments, one could assume that it would lose viewers but this could be a sign that the Ryback gimmick is catching on with fans.

The angle with Brodus Clay and Damien Sandow lost 135,000 viewers. Kelly Kelly vs. Eve Torres gained another 113,000 viewers. The highest rated segment of the show was Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Brock Lesnar – gaining 232,000 viewers, which actually isn’t a strong gain for the 10pm timeslot. Their segment did a 3.45 quarter rating.

Alex Riley vs. Dolph Ziggler lost 390,000 viewers while The Miz vs. Kane lost 208,000 more viewers. John Cena vs. Daniel Bryan in the main event gained 345,000 viewers for a 3.27 quarter rating, which is not a strong overrun segment and a disappointing main segment with John Cena.
