Divas Title Match Draws Raw’s Greatest Viewer Gains; Original Plans For the Match

evekaitlyntitlematchLast 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.
