Up against limited network competition, WWE kicked off its Road to WrestleMania with strong viewership and demo numbers for Monday’s RAW.

The post-Rumble episode, which was built around fallout from The Rock’s title win over CM Punk, Paul Heyman’s “performance review” and John Cena’s decision on a WrestleMania opponent, averaged an impressive 1.9 adults 18-49 rating with 5.02 million viewers.

Particularly noteworthy was interest in the 9PM hour, which garnered a strong 2.0 rating and 5.27 million viewers. The 8PM hour kicked things off with a 1.8 and 4.86 million, while the 10PM was good for a 1.9 and 4.93 million pairs of eyeballs.
