WWE Raw ratings rise for Hell in a Cell fallout show

WWE.com

Interest in the return of John Cena and fallout from the WWE "Hell in a Cell" pay-per-view (PPV) helped drive increased ratings for last night's (Oct. 28, 2013) episode of "Monday Night Raw" in Orlando.

Although last night's (Oct. 28, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw in Orlando, Florida, was facing strong competition from both the World Series on Fox (14.45 million viewers) and Monday Night Football on ESPN (10.76 million viewers), the rating for the show was up from last week and featured some of the best numbers of football season.

The show, which featured all the fallout from this past Sunday night's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view (PPV) in Miami, Florida, garnered a 3.0 rating and an average of 4.15 million viewers for all three hours, up from 3.82 for the go home show last week.

Here's the hourly breakdown, which shows the same pattern as last week:

Hour one: 4.32 million
Hour two: 4.19 million
Hour three: 3.97 million

The opening hour started with John Cena's big return to Raw after a couple months away and a super hot, long match against Damien Sandow after he cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase for a world heavyweight title shot.

He lost, of course, but the point of the segment, to keep a high viewership despite the strong competition, worked out well. It's just too bad they couldn't sustain that momentum, as the final two hours show.
