The latest installment of the John Cena vs. A.J. Styles feud took home top TV rating honors from Monday’s Raw TV following up on the Money in the Bank PPV.

The segments involving Shield members Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and new WWE World Hvt. champion Dean Ambrose fared well, but were two stairsteps below the Cena-Styles follow-up to MITB.

Overall, this week’s three-hour Raw kept the males 18-49 audience engaged throughout. The show peaked in Q5 for Cena-Styles, dropped off slightly the rest of the hour, saw a slight bump at Q9, and did not fall off the table the rest of the third hour like a typical week. The early placement of the Reigns vs. Rollins main event helped the third hour tremendously.
