Both average a 2 share rating, which is the percentage of viewers watching TV at the time. RAW averages a 5 share while Smackdown averages a 3 share.
- Wrestlemania 28 was the best selling sports DVD of 2012. CM Punk's DVD was #4 and The Rock's DVD set was #5.
- There are no plans for Jim Ross to announce full time in WWE this year. It is possible he will still call the occasional match at big shows like Wrestlemania 29. WWE recently made the decision to remove him from the announcing team at NXT because it's a developmental show and they want to groom new announcers.
