Divas Title Match Draws Raw’s Greatest Viewer Gains

Quote:
Last Monday’s edition of Raw saw the Divas Championship match between Eve Torres and Kaitlyn post the greatest viewership gains of the night, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

The match, which was Eve’s final WWE match and featured Kaitlyn winning the Divas Title in her hometown of Houston, Texas, was part of the segment that gained 509,000 viewers, the night’s biggest gain in viewership. Its quarter of the show had a 3.33 rating.

The stats are even more impressive when compared to The Rock’s big closing segment, which only gained 207,000 viewers.

This news could serve as a sign that, much like fans of TNA’s Knockouts, WWE fans are specifically tuning in for the Divas.


Also on the topic of the Eve/Kaitlyn match, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is also reporting that Monday’s match was originally scheduled to take place at the Royal Rumble.

The report states that it was Eve who convinced officials to make the switch, as she felt that it would be better if her final night and Kaitlyn’s big title win took place in Kaitlyn’s hometown of Houston.

I think the fact that people aware of online rumors were curious about Eve leaving. Good for the girls!

Proves that viewers tune in at certain times(shows end, waiting on other shows, got home from work, etc.) not because certain people are draw and others aren't.

I think this is a reason,because there no way people tune in just to see some mediocre divas match especially considering the fact that nobody gives a fuck about divas division anymore.Besides source of this article is Diva Dirt sorry,but from the looks of it it doesnt look like the most trustworthy website.

Favourite current WWE wrestlers:Wade Barret,Daniel Bryan,Brock Lesnar,Dolph Ziggler,Dean Ambrose,Damien Sandow.
Favourite WWE legends:Chris Jericho,Stone Cold,Kurt Angle,Shawn Michaels,Undertaker,Eddie Guerrero,Edge,CM Punk.

Re: Divas Title Match Draws Raw’s Greatest Viewer Gains

Diva Dirt is like the cesspool of internet wrestling purgatory. And that's really saying something. People call the internet the 10%ers, but diva dirt mongs are like the 0.0001%ers. It's like that tiny independant nation in the middle of nowhere that is run purely on propaganda machinations and utter delusions. It's worse than bleacher report.

Where are the articles of the thousands upon thousands of diva segments that have collapsed viewership or the fact that Ryback was in that same quarter? Conveniently left out because they have those kindergarten handling gloves attached permanently.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?

Re: Divas Title Match Draws Raw’s Greatest Viewer Gains

I guess people wanted to see Eve's last match and to see if the rumor's were true about her leaving. And they knew their would be a Title switch if the rumor's were true.

, on a serious note though; the match wasn't that bad.

Re: Divas Title Match Draws Raw’s Greatest Viewer Gains

The quarter probably only gained those viewers because the match ended.
