A fascinating statistic has emerged following Vince McMahon’s advertised appearance on Friday’s edition of WWE SmackDown.
Following the announcement that Vince McMahon had voluntarily stepped away from his positions as WWE CEO and Chairman, WWE revealed that Vince would be appearing on that night’s episode of SmackDown.
Vince ultimately opened the show, reciting WWE’s ‘Then, Now, Forever, Together’ tagline. A video of the segment was shared on YouTube with the comments turned off.
Also on the show, Brock Lesnar made his WWE return, attacking Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns following his title defence over Riddle.
Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics has shared a graphic showing that the video of the post-main event return is still getting views, recently passing 4 million.
The Vince McMahon segment isn’t even the second most watched clip from the show through YouTube views, with the highlight video of the actual Roman Reigns vs Riddle match amassing 1.69 million views as of Monday (June 20). The Vince McMahon segment had 1.14 views as of Monday.
It is also worth noting that per overnight ratings, hour 2 of SmackDown did better than hour 1, with Reigns’ segments effectively doing a better rating than McMahon’s.
Roman Reigns will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam in a Last Man Standing bout.
Five separate law firms in total have announced that they’re investigating WWE, following the WWE Board of Director’s initial investigation.
