– Here’s a segment-by-segment breakdown for the May 25th edition of Monday Night RAW featuring the angles with the NBA debacle. The show opened with a 3.28 rating for the Vince McMahon skit with Stan Kroenke. The Maryse vs. Kelly Kelly Divas Title match lost 189,000 viewers, the Kofi Kingston vs. Matt Hardy vs. William Regal match lost 363,000 viewers and losing viewers in the first hour is against the usual trends.
The segment with Ric Flair and Randy Orton gained 523,000 viewers and the Santino and Mickie vs. Chavo and Beth Phoenix match plus the Goldust and Hornswoggle vs. Kendrick and Festus match gained 232,000 viewers in what is usually a spot in the show where they lose viewers. The ten-man main event with Kennedy, Batista, John Cena, MVP, Jerry Lawler, Legacy, Big Show and The Miz gained 566,000 viewers and peaked at a 3.81 rating for the overrun.
