EA’s Weekly RAW YouTube Report (10/8/18)

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, 10/10/18):

  1. The Bella Twins surprise attack Ronda Rousey – 3 million views
  2. Baron Corbin’s 10-Man Global Battle Royal – 2.8 million
  3. Shawn Michaels coming out of retirement at Crown Jewel – 2.4 million
  4. Natalya helps Ronda Rousey after The Bellas’ attack – 1.8 million views
  5. *TIE* Trish & Lita beat down Alexa & Mickie/Roman & Rollins react – 1.6 million views
  6. Dean Ambrose speaks after RAW goes off the air – 1.1 million views

This week’s post-Super Show-Down edition of Monday Night RAW was loaded with surprises, announcement and appearances by big names that you just knew would translate into a hefty amount of views in the forthcoming YouTube report. The Shield is dethroned at number one this week by ‘The Baddest Woman on the Planet’ Ronda Rousey as we finally got the expected Nikki Bella match for Evolution revealed. While a lot of people saw Nikki’s turn on Ronda coming, it still caught me off-guard somewhat because I felt there was a chance WWE may look to keep them both as babyfaces. You know, almost like a “I just needed to find out scenario”. I do like this a lot better though and it proves that when Ronda is given something of significance, she crushes on YouTube for WWE. Thus, the inconsequential aftermath is even interesting enough to land at the number four spot.

Number two might seem like a bit of a surprise considering what it topped, however the unannounced return of Kurt Angle is undoubtedly what gives this clip a boost with 2.8 million views. Fans always love a surprise and although it was reported earlier in the day that Angle was backstage for RAW, his role wasn’t known. Plus, this was just a fun segment.

At number three is the clip you might have thought would take number one, but as I said before, fans love a surprise. This was no longer that, however it’s still a hugely significant moment and lands it 2.4 million views. You know that Monday Night RAW was a pretty stacked episode when Shawn Michaels officially announcing he’s coming out of retirement DOESN’T top our YouTube rankings.

Sliding into the fifth spot this week is a tie between the weekly RAW YouTube champions The Shield and the announcement of Trish Stratus and Lita vs. Mickie James and Alexa Bliss. ‘The Hounds Of Justice’ were not the main focal point of the red brand for the first time in a long time, but they still put up their usual good showing as the teased split of Ambrose continues.

WWE News: Final Two Superstars Qualify For World Cup On SmackDown 1000

Published

on

Last night on RAW, we saw Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins and one-half of the RAW Tag Team Champions Dolph Ziggler both pick up victories to earn their spots in the World Cup tournament, taking place Friday, November 2nd at WWE’s Crown Jewel.

Ziggler and Rollins now join John Cena and Kurt Angle who also represent RAW, while SmackDown Live’s Jeff Hardy and Randy Orton both qualified last week. Tonight, four Superstars vied for the final two spots as the blue brand presented SmackDown 1000.

In the night’s first Qualifying Match, the crowd was firmly behind Rusev as he took on ‘The A-Lister’ The Miz. Unfortunately for ‘The Bulgarian Brute’, it was a very short match as Aiden English would come out to distract him, giving Miz the opening to grab Rusev from behind and steal a pretty easy victory. Aiden wouldn’t escape from it unscathed as Rusev would deliver a beat down for his troubles, but there was no getting back the opportunity to be in the World Cup.

 

The main event of the evening was our second Qualifier, as the returning Rey Mysterio squared off with United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura for the final spot. Nakamura used his striking early on to ground the high-flyer, but eventually Mysterio was able to showcase the offensive innovation we’ve come to expect from him.

Although Shinsuke was able to find his way back using his strength advantage, the resilient Rey eventually dialed up the 619 and followed with a springboard splash to move onto Crown Jewel.

WWE News: New SmackDown Tag Champions Crowned On SmackDown 1000

Published

New Day WWE Smackdown

Tonight’s 1000th episode of WWE’s SmackDown has been loaded with appearances and surprises as we’ve seen the Evolution reunion where a possible issue between Batista and Triple H was teased, former General Managers Vickie Guerrero, Teddy Long and John Laurinaitis hanging out with current SmackDown GM Paige and much more.

In addition to all of that, The New Day put the SmackDown Tag Team Titles on the line against The Bar in a rematch from Super Show-Down. Woods and Big E took the ring on behalf of New Day, but Cesaro and Sheamus had just as much fight tonight as they did in Melbourne.

Both teams had chances with the upper hand, however neither an array of big moves and saves would leave both feeling frustrated. After Kofi intervened from the outside to stop some underhanded tactics by Sheamus, The Bar looked to lay him out by putting him through The New Day’s announce table. To everyone’s surprise, Big Show would make his way down to ringside to seemingly prevent Kingston’s demise, but instead put him through the table with a Chokeslam. Back in the ring, Big E was distracted as Sheamus laid in wait to deliver the Brogue Kick, giving us new SmackDown Tag Team Champions.
