While the NBA Finals game certainly had an impact on WWE's ratings, it's interesting to note how the first hour viewership this week was down nearly 400,000 viewers versus last week's show.

Raw ranked #2 for the night among cable originals, behind Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta (1.27 demo rating, 2.608 million viewers).

Raw's numbers should be up significantly from now until September, when football season begins. The fifth game of the National Basketball Association finals began during the second hour or Raw and ended with the Golden State Warriors defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 and winning the series 4-1.
