Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterAs noted before, the July 16th WWE RAW Supershow did a 3.44 cable rating with 4.90 million viewers.
In the segment breakdown, Titus O'Neil and Darren Young vs. Kofi Kingston and R-Truth lost 384,000 viewers from the opening segment. AJ Lee and Daniel Bryan's backstage segment plus Zack Ryder vs. Alberto Del Rio with Rey Mysterio's return gained 252,000 viewers. Rikishi's return vs. Heath Slater gained another 169,000 viewers.
Eve Torres and The Miz vs. AJ and Bryan plus the wedding angle gained 282,000 viewers. The big surprise of the show was the Ryback vs. Jack Swagger angle with the confrontation between Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler. These lost 20,000 viewers in a spot in the show where RAW usually loses several hundred thousand viewers.
Brodus Clay vs. JTG lost 491,000 viewers, which indicates that fans stayed for the Ryback match and the Jericho-Ziggler segment but tuned out as soon as the next segment began. The main event with CM Punk vs. Big Show and John Cena teasing a Money in the Bank cash in gained 719,000 viewers for a 3.99 quarter rating.
