Below is a complete list of all WWE YouTube videos from last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW, ranked in order of views at press time.
This week’s show was completely dominated by WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, which should come as a surprise to no one, after the two engaged in yet another physical brawl ahead of their championship bout at WrestleMania 34. Ronda Rousey’s scuffle with Absolution came in second place followed by highlights from John Cena’s main event match with Kane. Those were the only three videos to crack one million views as of now.
The biggest disappointment this week has to be the full, uncut edition of The Ultimate Deletion, which took place last week from the Hardy Compound in Cameron, NC. The full video has been watched only 300,000 times in its first 24 hours online, or about ten times less than Lesnar and Roman’s show-opening brawl. It’s worth noting that The Ultimate Deletion may have drawn better if it was uploaded last week after it aired, as some of last week’s Woken Hardy videos had decent traffic.
Still, with less than two weeks left until WrestleMania it’s clear who the biggest drawing names on the card are. That may pose an issue after next Sunday as the two top names are both former UFC stars, and one of them is leaving (possibly for good) in less than one month’s time. John Cena is a part-time star at best now, and Roman Reigns struggles to get a babyface reaction on a weekly basis. The good news is that Bayley and Sasha Banks did far better than expected in YouTube viewership, so that may change WWE’s mind about leaving them in the Women’s Battle Royal at WrestleMania, or at least giving them a more high profile spot at the next pay-per-view.
