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 (1:00 PM EST, 11/7/18):
- RAW & SmackDown’s Survivor Series captains are announced – 2 million views
- Dean Ambrose attacks Seth Rollins after his match – 1.4 million views
- Kurt Angle vs. Drew McIntyre – 1.3 million views
- RAW Tag Team Title Match: Seth Rollins vs. AOP – 794k views
- Braun Strowman on the hunt for Baron Corbin – 688k views
- Ronda Rousey reminds Becky Lynch who she’s dealing with – 651k views
- Sasha Banks, Bayley & Natalya vs. The Riott Squad – 407k views
After last week’s report saw the issues between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins take over the top spot, we have a new man leading the charge this week. The number one spot goes to RAW’s opening segment in which captains for each brand’s Survivor Series teams were revealed, but also focused around Kurt Angle and setting up his match for the night, which also came in at number three.
The Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins rivalry slides down a spot to number two this week, as the WWE Universe, along with Rollins, still await an explanation from ‘The Lunatic Fringe’. A stark contrast to how intrigued the fans are by this feud is Rollins’ other spot in our list this week at number four, losing the RAW Tag Titles to AOP which comes in with just under 800k views. You had a title change and Seth dragging that match up the board and there’s no doubt that’s the only reason it is ranked so high with the state of the tag team division currently on the red brand.
We see another drop for one of RAW’s top Superstars at number five with Braun Strowman’s search for Acting RAW General Manager Baron Corbin throughout the program. If anybody ever wants to argue against why Brock Lesnar is still around, look at what Braun pulled last week for his clip with ‘The Beast Incarnate’. It’s a difference over over a million views compared to what Strowman did this week. ‘Nuff said.
More sliding down our top seven is again the story for number six this week, as RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey surprisingly doesn’t hit great numbers with just 651k. This is definitely not what I had predicted, Rousey’s proven to be a force in her short WWE career on YouTube. I still don’t expect that to change and see this week’s performance as an aberration more than the start of a trend. After all, this week’s RAW was pre-recorded and absolutely could have had an affect on not just ratings, but people checking out the highlights as well.
Finishing up this week’s RAW YouTube Report was the opening match from the red brand, a rematch from Evolution that saw Bayley, Sasha Banks and Natalya face The Riott Squad. Much like every other week, number seven is always under my “best of the rest” category, as this beats out the likes of Nia Jax vs. Ember Moon and Apollo Crews vs. Jinder Mahal to make the cut.
