Hour one started strong with 3,419,000 viewers, then went down to 3,293,000 viewers in the second hour, before crashing to 2,988,000 in the third and final hour. Raw lost 433,000 viewers from the first to the last hour. The main event featured the face-to-face between all four individuals in the WWE Universal title match.
The last hour of Raw dragged the overall number while the first hour was the strongest since the April 10 episode.
With pretty much everything on repeat on network TV and not much competition on cable, Raw was #1 overall in viewership and #1, #2, and #5 in the top 50 cable chart among the 18-49 demographic. (Ratings credit: Showbuzzdaily.com)
