Every week, the Inside Pulse Wrestling Ratings Report takes a look at the latest TV ratings for all major wrestling shows in the United States. For each show, the latest ratings are analyzed, and compared with the last 5 and 10 week trends.

It was the week after WWE Wrestlemania 32! Raw saw a bump, but not as high as some years due to stiff competition from the NCAA finals.

Total Divas was up slightly, but TNA continued to struggle.

Here are this week’s ratings!
