You nailed it.
And Ryback only appeared in the overrun, didn't he?! So his appearance isn't even included in the actual rating.
Austin and Rock in maybe the worst feud of all time, WWF vs The Alliance, still managed to hold the rating in the high 3's. That was bad for the time but WWE would kill to get numbers like that today.
