WWE News: Weekly Monday Night RAW YouTube Report (5/14/18)



WWE Raw YouTube

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, 5/16/18):

  1. Roman Reigns gets his retribution on Jinder Mahal – 2.9 million views
  2. MITB Qualifier: Bobby Lashley vs. Elias vs. Kevin Owens – 1.3 million views
  3. Kurt Angle denies Roman Reigns another MITB Qualifier – 1.1 million views
  4. Braun Strowman & Finn Balor vs. Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre – 795k views
  5. IC Title: Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens – 784k views
  6. MITB Qualifier: Bayley vs. Mickie James vs. Alexa Bliss – 643k views
  7. MITB Qualifier: No Way Jose vs. Bobby Roode vs. Baron Corbin – 593k views

On a week that saw viewership slightly increase (funny that happens with a taped episode), YouTube numbers appear to be back to normal. I think that means we can chalk up last week to people’s disgust with Backlash.

‘The Big Dog’ retakes his spot on top with a crazy amount of views for something that’s not a match or really anything of vast importance, storyline-wise. We see more of this at number three, with another simple segment. If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it over and over again…Roman Reigns draws. That’s the bottom line and even ‘Stone Cold’ would say so.

Just like last week, all of our Money In The Bank Qualifiers on RAW occupy spots near the top at numbers two, six and seven. There’s not a lot of star power at seven, but the appeal of MITB gives them a boost when in previous weeks we saw segments with Roode and Elias draw poorly. Speaking of Elias, a huge jump for him this week, but I don’t put much, if any of the stock in him being the reason for it. You’ve also got Lashley, who hasn’t proven yet he can pull much for views, but then there’s Kevin Owens. Some may not remember or might have possibly missed it, but KO was one of the company’s top earners last year (check that report out here).

We see ‘The Prize Fighter’ again at number five as he squares off with the (still) red-hot Rollins. Seth continues to bring in views every single week, remaining consistent no matter how poor viewership is for any given episode. Then lastly at the four position comes RAW’s resident monster, Braun Strowman, who along with Seth also “shows up”, so to speak, week-in and week-out.

Mitchell’s AEW Continental Classic Update! (11/27/23)

What a start to the tournament!



Did your picks win points?

The AEW Continental Classic is underway, with almost everyone competing. Check in here if you haven’t seen the winners and losers of week 1!

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points
  • Mark Briscoe: 0-1, 0 points.
  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points


Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Brody King: 1-0, 3 points
  • Claudio Castagnoli: 1-0, 3 points
  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete


My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
