WWE News: This Week’s RAW YouTube Report (6/11/18)

Published

on

As we all know, social media and other outlets have become a huge means of drawing in interaction and viewers for WWE. Most people will point to television ratings like they did during the Monday Night Wars in the late 1990’s, however that can be skewed with so many various means of watching today that do not include cable television.

As you’ve become accustomed to, here is this week’s RAW YouTube Report (2:30 PM EST, 6/13/18):

  1. Ronda Rousey makes Nia Jax tap out – 3.9 million views
  2. Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens vs. Finn Balor vs. Bobby Roode – 1.5 million views
  3. RAW’s MITB Ladder Match participants open the show – 1.4 million views
  4. Roman Reigns vs. Sunil Singh/Bobby Lashley runs Sami Zayn’s obstacle course – 1.1 million views
  5. Seth Rollins destroys Elias’ guitar – 1 million views
  6. Sasha Banks vs. Natalya vs. Ember Moon vs. Alexa Bliss – 682k views

Blowing everybody out of the water at the top position is Ronda Rousey with a whopping 3.9 million views, easily the biggest number I’ve seen in my short time covering this. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times by now, but mainstream MATTERS. Last week, Ronda Rousey did not perform well, however her segment didn’t feature her name or even a picture of her for the YouTube video. This week was the opposite case, plus she also got physically involved with her Money In The Bank opponent, all things that equal a jackpot.

The interest in Money In The Bank is again prevalent at numbers two and three, which oddly enough started and closed the RAW broadcast. Outside of last week’s apparent aberration, Strowman has shown he’s a player in the numbers along with Balor and Owens on a fairly consistent basis. Bobby Roode and the red brand’s female MITB competitors are the benefactors of this, as Roode has greatly struggled week-in and week-out while Sasha and Alexa are only known to pull between 500-700k by themselves on a given week.

‘The Big Dog’ takes a big drop in terms of the rankings and another downturn in views at 1.1 million, good enough to tie Roman Reigns for fourth with what many continuously blast, Sami Zayn and Bobby Lashley. While I still feel people are overblowing just how “bad” Lashley/Zayn has been, it’s certainly proved to bring eyes to their feud, whether you’ve liked it or not.

The WWE’s hottest Superstar Seth Rollins clocks in at number five, which can be a little misleading if you only see that and not how many views he garnered. He’s hovered around the million mark regularly, but the competition this week was just much stronger.

Finally, RAW’s women round out the top watched clips with their own Fatal 4-Way involving Money In The Bank competitors. As I stated before, Sasha and Alexa have been known to rake 500-700k on their own, so this lines right up with those numbers. Also, if you want to argue with me that the ladies had much more to do with the 1.4 million that the opening segment pulled in, I’d ask you why there was such a drop then for their match since it followed the segment. Always Use Your Head, folks.

AXS TV Denies Being Involved With Reported Upstart Promotion

Published

on

As we noted earlier, a new report has surfaced today stating that current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho has been working with WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross on starting a new wrestling promotion with Barry Bloom and backed by Jacksonville Jaguars’ Owner Shad Khan (see the whole story here).

It was said that AXS TV, who currently is the home to New Japan Pro Wrestling and the upcoming WOW-Women Of Wrestling in January, was already in talks with the promotion and an executive was working to “fast track” a deal. The promotion which reportedly already has Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page on board, was reportedly eyeing a late-2019/early-2020 broadcast date.

Now, WrestlingInc is reporting that after speaking with a representative from AXS TV about the project, they replied with, “There’s no truth to the AXS TV component”. It was noted that they couldn’t confirm Chris Jericho or Jim Ross’ involvement, but AXS TV is said to be “very committed” to NJPW and has some big plans for them in 2019.

EA’s Take: All aboard the speculation train! So here’s what I find interesting; the AXS TV rep specifically said no truth to the “AXS TV component” and not necessarily the component that it’s actually legitimate that Jericho and JR are starting a company. A very interesting choice of words by that person that you can take any number of ways.
