Final 5/5 WWE Raw Rating

wwe raw previewThe 5/5 post-Extreme Rules edition of WWE Raw finished with a 3.02 cable television rating which is down 7% from last week's unexpected boost in numbers, but still up from the year-low episode the week before.

Raw had a 4.276 million viewers audience overall. The first hour had less than 4 million people tuned in for the first time this year, but perked back up to 4.414 million viewers in the second hour, followed by a rare increase in third hour traffic, finishing the night well at 4.451 million. The fluctuation in this week's show was likely caused by the NBA Playoffs second round match-up between the Clippers and the Thunder, which ended at the start of Raw's final hour. 

CM Punk on the WWE Network

Several readers have sent in word that CM Punk was featured multiple times in tonight's WrestleMania Rewind on the WWE Network. The weekly special focused on Randy Savage and his rise to the WWF Championship at WrestleMania IV. Punk was all over the WWE Countdown episode as well, looking totally different – Cody Rhodes still had a mustache in the same episode, giving you a clue how dated these interviews are.
