Perhaps Brock Lesnar returning once again
and targeting, once again, Roman Reigns
feels old as it’s been done a couple of
times now but the interest is there judging
from WWE’s YouTube channel.
In fact, the video of Brock Lesnar returning
and attacking The Bloodline has a whopping
4.5 million viewers in three days, eclipsing
any video WWE has uploaded from either Raw
or Smackdown for several weeks.
The highlights of Reigns vs Riddle from
Smackdown was also a big success, with 1.8
million views and Brandon Thurston of
Wrestlenomics reports that the final 15
minutes of Smackdown with the WWE title
match and Lesnar’s return had 2,501,000
viewers and 890,000 in the 18-49 demo, a
high for the show.
The match even outnumbered the much
anticipated Vince McMahon appearance at the
start of the show which did 2,326,000
viewers in the opening 15 minutes and
720,000 in the 18-49 demo.
Reigns vs Lesnar will headline SummerSlam
this year in a last man standing match for
the Undisputed WWE Universal title.
