Here is the list of the ten most viewed WWE Network shows, courtesy of the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter. This is a metric always worth monitoring as it reflects where fan interest is these days.
1. Extreme Rules
2. Extreme Rules post-show
3. Extreme Rules pre-show
4. Table for 3 with Bruno Sammartino, Ric Flair and Randy Orton
5. Table for 3 with Eric Bischoff, Michael Hayes and Jim Cornette
6. Music Power 10 Orlando (a show about the ring entrances at WrestleMania)
7. NXT from 5/31
8. Backlash 2017
9. WrestleMania 2017
10. WWE 24 Finn Balor
No surprise that a pay per view would occupy the top spot. On the flip side, 205 Live continues to be a massive disappointment. It either fails to, or barely, cracks the Top 20 every week. The 5/30 show ranked 19th for the week, which was below last week’s (5/24) episode of NXT, Payback, the 2017 Royal Rumble and a couple of older episodes of “Table of 3.” Even an old episode of the “Monday Night Wars” series (which came out years ago) ranked higher.
As of now, there are no plans to run any additional live WWE Network specials besides the UK show and the Mae Young Classic. The RAW and SmackDown brands both will have a pay per view in July, same as June.
