Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterAs noted before, the December 17th WWE RAW with The Slammys scored a 2.87 rating with 4.22 million viewers. The 2011 Slammy Awards did almost identical numbers with a 2.84 rating and 4.11 million viewers. In 2011, those numbers were considered really bad but this year they're considered really good.
In the segment breakdown, Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres plus the return of The New Age Outlaws for a Slammy presentation gained 130,000 viewers from the opener. Kofi Kingston vs. Tensai and the Best Kiss Slammy lost 28,000 viewers. David Otunga vs. The Great Khali lost 328,000 more viewers. The Ric Flair segment with John Cena, CM Punk and Paul Heyman gained 605,000 viewers for a 3.20 quarter rating at 9pm.
The end of the brawl with Flair, Kane, Daniel Bryan, Ryback and The Shield plus JTG vs. Brodus Clay lost 588,000 viewers. The LOL Moment Slammy plus Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes gained 147,000 viewers. The hashtag Slammy and the segment with Big Show, Sheamus and Ziggler trying to cash in gained 122,000 viewers. Heath Slater, Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal vs. Tommy Dreamer, Alberto Del Rio and The Miz lost 502,000 viewers for a show-low 2.64 quarter rating. Plus this was the 10pm quarter that almost always gains.
Antonio Cesaro vs. Ryback plus the Match of the Year Slammy with Triple H gained 113,000 viewers, a number that has to be considered a disappointment. John Cena and Vickie Guerrero vs. AJ Lee and Dolph Ziggler gained 510,000 viewers for a 3.00 overrun rating.
