EA’s Weekly RAW YouTube Report (7/9/18)

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, 7/11/18):

  1. Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley brawl – 2.3 million views
  2. Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre – 965k views
  3. Nia Jax & Natalya vs. Alexa Bliss & Mickie James – 619k views
  4. Drew McIntyre challenges Seth Rollins – 501k views
  5. Finn Balor & Bobby Roode vs. Baron Corbin & Elias – 392k views
  6. Kevin Owens hides from Braun Strowman in Kurt Angle’s office – 391k views
  7. Bobby Lashley confronts Roman Reigns backstage – 362k views

This is the final week of Ronda Rousey’s suspension from RAW and the last opportunity for someone to (possibly) take the number one spot with ease. If you saw RAW this week, there’s no denying that the big brawl between Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley was the best segment of the night (and the best in weeks if you ask me), so there’s no surprise that it comes in at the top spot with 2.3 million views. I saw some suggestions that perhaps this segment would pull in the 4-5 million range, but based off of the numbers lately, I didn’t see that as possible. There’s only one person I’ve seen draw those kind of digits and as I said, she’s “suspended”. The lead-up to Reigns and Lashley’s melee also comes in at the seventh position.

‘The KingSlayer’ comes in twice on our top seven, occupying the second and fourth spots as his rivalry against Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre continues. It has seemed like Rollins has lost some momentum since losing the championship, but it’s tough to say how much is really on him, as ratings on cable and YouTube views have all been pretty down over the past month.

The rest of our list falls kind of in the “there was nothing better category”, dropping numbers all between the 400-600k range (roughly). Number three sees Alexa Bliss take on her Extreme Rules challenger via tag team action, posting the usual numbers for the RAW Women’s Champion when Ronda Rousey isn’t involved. Another tag match slides in at number five with Finn Balor and Bobby Roode pairing up against Baron Corbin and Elias. Balor has taken a huge hit in YouTube views lately and I think it shows that he’s not quite the draw some people might think. Clearly, working with Corbin has done him no favors in what’s been a bit of a “filler feud”, however people that can draw well are able to do it with just about anybody else.

Lastly, one of the most entertaining pieces of business on RAW in some time comes in at number six as Kevin Owens continues trying to keep himself away from Braun Strowman as if they’re Tom & Jerry. These two did great last week, but this week they didn’t have much going on outside of some banter backstage. Still, on a week where again, there just wasn’t much else, it’s good enough to make our list.

MLW News: Sammy Guevara Returning To MLW Next Thursday In NYC

Published

on

We’re just over a week away now from Major League Wrestling’s return to the Melrose Ballroom in Queens, New York for its next set of Fusion television tapings, with a handful of big matches already announced for the event.

In addition to LA Park vs. PCO, The Hart Foundation in 6-Man Tag action, plus the return of the old WCW Spin The Wheel Make The Deal match, today MLW has announced that Sammy Guevara will return to the promotion for the show as he will take on El Hijo de LA Park. It should be noted that Joey Janela has also been announced to appear, however that could be changing after he suffered a possible serious injury this past weekend (read about that here):

SAMMY GUEVARA RETURNS TO MLW IN CLASH WITH PROMOCIONES DORADO’S EL HIJO DE LA PARK NEXT THURSDAY IN NYC

NEW YORK – This summer the calculated impresaria Salina de la Renta fired Sammy Guevara from Promociones Dorado on national TV.  Now, Guevara will have his shot at payback as he returns to MLW next Thursday October 4th at Melrose Ballroom in Queens, NY.  Sammy Guevara vs. El Hijo de LA Park (presented by Salina de la Renta) has been signed for MLW FURY ROAD: an MLW Fusion TV taping. Tickets start at just $20 at www.MLWtickets.com.

Salina de la Renta unceremoniously terminated her contract with Sammy Guevara this summer… while in a Jacuzzi on MLW FUSION.  Since being fired, Guevara has gone a journey abroad to Mexico and Japan to learn new skills and add to his already impressive arsenal.  

While away, the ruthless promoter Salina de la Renta’s iron grip has only gotten stronger with World Heavyweight Champion Low Ki, LA Park, El Hijo de LA Park and Ricky Martinez now under the Promociones Dorado banner.

“Sammy, Sammy, Sammy… still a boy trying to sit with the adults,” said the impresaria of Promociones Dorado about her former luchador.

Promociones Dorado has emerged over the last year as a dream team both in the ring and behind the scenes.  Founded by Salina de la Renta, Promociones Dorado acts as a pipeline to the stars of Latin America for sports leagues, TV and film in the US and abroad. 

Will the mysterious El Hijo de LA Park make good on a horror show next Thursday in New York or will Sammy Guevara stamp his return with an impressive win? Find out LIVE October 4th in New York City!

Tickets start at $20 for this MLW FUSION taping. [Buy tickets]

WWE News: Mae Young Classic Competitor Signs WWE Contract

Published

on

*WARNING – Spoilers ahead*

With the first round of WWE’s second annual Mae Young Classic still being aired weekly on the WWE Network, those who have tuned in have gotten a chance yet again to catch some more great female talent, just as we saw last year.

One of the more popular competitors in this year’s field has been Mia Yim, the former IMPACT Wrestling star who competed as Jade. The 29-year old, 9-year veteran of course also took part in the tournament last year, only making it to the second round where she was eliminated by Shayna Baszler. Last week, we saw Mia once again advance to the second round when she defeated her old rival Allysin Kay, securing her next match against Kaitlyn. Of course if you followed along with the spoilers for the Mae Young Classic, we know Mia will make it onto one more round before being eliminated.

While Mia certainly won’t be going as far as some fans would like, she did get a lot of love from the live crowd following her exit from the tournament as Full Sail University rang out with chants of “Please Sign Mia” directed at Triple H, much like we saw with Cedric Alexander during the Cruiserweight Classic in 2016. Today, we now know that the crowd’s wishes have come true as PWInsider is confirming that Mia has indeed signed a WWE contract. This makes Yim the only competitor from the Mae Young Classic field (who isn’t already signed) to be given a WWE deal and if you’ve been following along with recent videos shot at the Performance Center, you will see she is already there working out.

At this time, there’s no word on when she will be making her official debut.
