The final WWE RAW segment involving Bret Hart and Vince McMahon brought the show its peak rating Monday, but Hart was not the show’s only big draw for its battle with TNA iMPACT!
Behind the 4.4 overrun rating for the Hart-McMahon confrontation was a 4.1 for the DX vs. JeriShow match. The latter segment actually appeared to siphon a greater portion of viewers from TNA, as it corresponded with the second-lowest quarter hour on iMPACT! (the TNA show drew a 1.17 head-to-head with the Undisputed Tag Titles bout).
Bret Hart’s first major segment, his show-opening confrontation with Shawn Michaels, drew a 3.7 rating. TNA’s 9PM quarter, which included Hulk Hogan’s first appearance before the crowd, peaked with a 1.9–combined, 5.6 percent of cable households were watching professional wrestling from 9-9:15PM.
