The Brawl for All documentary did the fourth-most viewers in Dark Side of the Ring history, trailing this season's two-hour Chris Benoit episode, season one's episode on the Von Erichs, and last week's New Jack episode.

Here's a look at the ratings for Dark Side of the Ring season one and the first three episodes of this season:

Season one --

  • Macho Man & Ms. Elizabeth -- 154,000 viewers, 0.06 rating in 18-49
  • The Montreal Screwjob -- 181,000 viewers, 0.07 rating in 18-49

  • New Jack -- 229,000 viewers, 0.11 rating in 18-49
  • Brawl for All -- 226,000 viewers, 0.09 rating in 18-49

Last night's After Dark post-show for Dark Side of the Ring didn't rank in the top 150 for the night in the 18-49 demo.

WWE Backstage averaged 140,000 viewers this week, which was up from last Tuesday's 134,000. The rating in the 18-49 demo stayed at a 0.04.

Backstage has been boosted by having WWE programming leading into it. This year's Royal Rumble pay-per-view aired on FS1 before Backstage last Tuesday, while three WWE 24 documentaries led into Backstage this week.

The WWE 24 episodes that aired last night were focused on WrestleManias 31, 33, and 34. They averaged 183,000, 232,000, and 232,000 viewers respectively. The ratings in 18-49 were 0.05, 0.07, and 0.07.
