EA’s Weekly RAW YouTube Report (9/10/18)

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, 9/12/18):

  1. The Shield returns fire against their attackers – 3.3 million views
  2. Roman Reigns gets his hands on Braun Strowman – 2.5 million views
  3. *TIE* Baron Corbin forces The Shield to leave/Braun rises from wreckage – 1.6 million views
  4. *TIE* Ambrose & Rollins consider pressing charges/Alexa & Mickie vs. Ronda & Nattie – 1.3 million
  5. Mick Foley interrupts Elias – 809k views
  6. Triple H speaks to The Undertaker – 777k views

While last week’s RAW YouTube Report saw the surprise return of The Undertaker neck-and-neck with The Shield, that’s not the case this week as ‘The Hounds Of Justice’ dominate. Taking the top four spots (with two tied at number three) solidifies the consistency of The Shield and anything they’re involved with to pull big numbers. Despite what a lot of people thought, it’s certainly made Roman Reigns more interesting and I’ve heard a lot less boos from the crowd for the time being. At this point, there’s really no good argument against Reigns being in the spot he’s at too. Not if you #UseYourHead.

The only other clip to top a million views this week is also no surprise, as the Ronda Rousey/Natalya vs. Alexa Bliss/Mickie James match ties for fourth with 1.3 million views. If I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, but it’s all about Rousey’s name value and mainstream appeal. Nobody can give me a reason otherwise as to why this simple tag match would draw that well, especially given since nearly every angle on the red brand has taken a back seat to what The Shield’s up to and Undertaker/Triple H.

The last two spots this week are reserved for another returning legend, as well as a rare RAW appearance from Triple H at five and six respectively. It’s been a long time since we last saw Mick Foley on a Monday night and his segment included a big announcement for Hell In A Cell, two things typically a recipe for at least a million views. Meanwhile, Triple H simply cut a promo, however a promo coming off of a hot segment last week. Therefore, both of these clips only coming in the 750-800k range strikes me as a surprise. I felt that this week’s report really had a shot for a million per clip.

EC3 Destroys TNA In One ‘Claire Lynch’ Tweet

Published

on

EC3 Claire Lynch AJ Styles TNA

Twitter is an amazing place, although sometimes it can be quite off-putting. That was not the case when EC3 gave us a tweet about Dixie Carter–that was really more about TNA in general–that should never be forgotten.

Lars Sullivan tweeted that EC3 was the worst thing to ever come out of Dixie Carter (odd, since she’s his “aunt,” and not his “mother”), and EC3 provided a response that can never be topped.

Fans will remember Claire Lynch as the supposed mistress of AJ Styles, a storyline so bad it was quickly (but not quickly abandoned) after revealing Christopher Daniels put Claire up to the claim. This, of course, was after a failed pregnancy was included as part of the storyline.

Thankfully, the YouTube videos still exist…for now:

I wouldn’t expect those videos to go away anytime soon, since the descriptions were recently updated with details on subscribing to the Global Wrestling Network.

Claire Lynch was played by commercial actress Julia Reilly, who reportedly quit the company after being harassed online (shocker), and wasn’t heard from since. Her Twitter account lists her as a trade show presenter, but the last tweet was in 2015. She did post to Instagram this year, and (sadly, for her) someone commented about her TNA run back in February.

Sonoran Championship Wrestling BATTLE|LINES Results (9/21/18)

Published

on

SCW Battle Lines

SCW (Sonoran Championship Wrestling) returned to The World Famous Nile Theater on Friday night, September 21, for BATTLE|LINES! Tensions were high all night, and the rowdy crowd in attendance were treated so some amazing action.

By the end of the night we had a new (but reluctant) tag team, fans begging for more EJ-Calder, one pissed off challenger, and the revelation of perhaps the strongest force ever to hit SCW…

Full results:

Navajo Warrior pinned Alex Salyers
Salyers reminded everyone of the reasons he asked for “the biggest, baddest, and most respected man in Arizona,” and then promptly punched him in the face. The legendary competitor proved too much in the end.

SBR & Cole Wright (with Travis Lee) beat Awesome Andy & Aguila
Two brand new teams in SCW brought the action early and never stopped, bringing the fans to their feet on multiple occasions. In the end, Travis sprayed Andy with Body Spray, leading his team to victory. After the match it was obvious that SBR & Cole had no clue what Travis was up to.

The Heat Seat with Pete The Heat and special guest Sergio Vega
Pete The Heat welcomed Sergio Vega, who explained that he was attacked at the border on his way to August’s Big Trouble In Little Mesa. He didn’t see the attacker, but did notice that Jay Garland was wearing a Sergio Vega shirt when he left the building with Thugnificent that night. The Hawaiian Lion entered the ring to remind Sergio to focus on their match later in the evening, and that the Arizona legend fully intended on ending the year-plus reign of the champion.

SOS (with June Jackson) pinned Morgan (with Adrenalyn) in a No Disqualification Match
June Jackson announced that she would not be participating in the match, but “supervising” as her best friend, SOS, battled Morgan instead. Morgan didn’t come alone, bringing back-up on the form of Adrenalyn! All four women battled throughout The Nile, but in the end a (legal) chairshot from SOS allowed her to score the pin after June blasted Adrenalyn with a tire iron.

EJ Sparks and Calder McColl battled to a time limit draw
In another first time ever encounter, EJ and Calder brought the fight in a big way, neither letting up for the duration of the match. Calder connected with an Air Raid Crash, but EJ kicked out of the pinfall attempt right before time expired. Calder was frustrated, but the two men embraced to end a match that fans are already asking to see again.

Toom E Guci addressed the crowd
SCW co-owner and general manager Toom E Guci announced that on October 19, we will celebrate two years of Sonoran Championship Wrestling  at Run The Gauntlet. Competitors will compete in the biggest Gauntlet ever, spanning the entire evening, and the winner will have the ability to make any match they choose. Toom revealed that the first match of Run The Gauntlet.

SCW Tag Team Champions Jay Garland & The MITH and Impulse Champion Thugnificent fought The Brothers Of Wrestling (Evan Daniels & R-Three) and LJ Ramos to a no-contest
Toom E Guci got the answers he was seeking when these six men jumped into action. LJ Ramos was (seemingly) injured during the match, and was rendered unable to continue and helped to the back. The 3-on-2 advantage proved to be too much for the BOW, and when all hope was lost LJ returned to the ring! Once LJ was tagged in, he stood face-to-face with The Man In The Hood, but turned around and attacked Evan Daniels! Garland, Thugnificent, MITH, and Ramos maintained a 4-on-2 advantage until EJ Sparks ran to confront the four men. Before EJ could do anything, June Jackson snuck in and hit EJ with a low blow, leading to a 5-on-1 attack on the fan favorite. Jay Garland took the mic and revealed that Genesys was reformed, much to the dismay of Toom E Guci.

SCW Heavyweight Champion Sergio Vega pinned The Hawaiian Lion to retain his championship
After defeating Ricky Mandel to earn this championship opportunity, The Hawaiian Lion took the fight to the champion, but there was no backing down for Sergio Vega. Lion connected with an Axe Bomber late in the match, but was slow to cover. Sergio kicked out, but Lion immediately latched onto a Coquina Clutch. Sergio got to the ropes multiple times, and referee Scott Johnson had to pull Lion off of Sergio. Lion protested, but that gave Sergio the opening he needed to score the victor. Lion snapped after the match, taking out his frustrations on the champion and refusing to release the Clutch. The Navajo Warrior hit the ring to finally break Lion from the hold, restraining him before he could do more damage to the champion, the official, and potentially his own career.

Sonoran Championship Wrestling returns to The Nile Theater on Friday, October 19, 2018 for Run The Gauntlet! Don’t miss this night of non-stop action as the SCW roster attempts to Run The Gauntlet from start to finish.
