ESPN replay of WWE WrestleMania 35 averages 421,000 viewers


Sunday afternoon's WrestleMania 35 replay on ESPN, which also served as somewhat of a lead-in for the second day of this year's show on the WWE Network and pay-per-view, averaged 421,000 viewers. 

That's down 41.5 percent from last week, but previous replays had aired in prime time. The WrestleMania 35 replay started at 3 p.m. Eastern time.

The show averaged a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 demo, dropping to 70th for the day on cable. That's down 40 percent from last week, when they finished in 38th on cable. 

The demo rating was also lower than what NXT did this week on USA Network, which was the lowest number for that show to date.

This was the last of three WrestleMania replays that were scheduled for ESPN. WrestleMania 30 and WrestleMania 32 had aired the two previous weeks.

Sunday's WrestleMania pre-show, which aired on FS1 in addition to the WWE Network and WWE's various social media platforms, averaged 112,000 viewers and a 0.04 rating in the 18-49 demo. That was 145th for the day on cable. That would be comparable to what a highly rated edition of WWE Backstage would do on the same network.

Ratings for Saturday's pre-show on FS1 are not available as the show did not crack the top 150 in 18-49 for the day.
