When you take a look at how the card for Under Pressure did in terms of views on YouTube you can’t deny that the knockouts are a HUGE draw more specifically the Allie/Rosemary/Su Yung storyline. Both Allie’s title defense and entrance out did the main event of the show. When you take a look at last week’s YouTube report Allie pulled in the same numbers as her special entrance did this week and she DIDN’T even have a match. Looking at the numbers from this week and last week I would have to say that Impact has tapped into something special with this feud fans are really into it.
One match that I didn’t expect to do well but surprised me and I’m sure it surprised all of you too is the Scott Steiner vs Eli Drake match. Back at the Redemption PPV they pulled off a shocking victory over LAX and just a couple of weeks ago they dropped the titles to the upstart team of Z & E. Soon after they lost the tag team titles they began teasing a breakup which lead to Stiener’s first singles match in Impact Wrestling in 7 years. Brain Cage on the other hand continues to pull in disappointing numbers even though he put on an great match with Dezmond Xavier this week. I hope that when they put the X-Division belt on him that he begins to become a bigger draw than he is right now.
