This Week's Top WWE Network shows
Friday, May 19, 2017
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, these are the top ten most watched shows on the WWE Network this week.
1. WWE 24 Finn Balor
2. NXT from 5/10 (Strong vs. Itami)
3. Payback (Strowman vs. Reigns)
4. WrestleMania 33 (Undertaker vs. Reigns)
5. Bring it to the Table
6. Backlash 2016 (Styles vs Ambrose for the WWE title)
7. Talking Smack from 5/9 (Breezango, Dolph Ziggler)
8. 205 Live from 5/9 (Kendrick vs. Tozawa)
9. Table for 3 with Edge, Christian, and Angle
10. NXT from 5/3 (Women's Battle Royal)
While WWE 24: Finn Balor pre4mired right after RAW went off the air and was hyped during the show, helping it get to the top spot on the list, it is telling that last week's NXT has gathered much more views than the 205 live show from the day before. Also, with BackLash taking place Sunday night, there is interest in last year's event, that took place in September soon after the new brand split had taken place, instead of the usual spot in April or May it has done in year's past. This year's Payback is still relatively new at two weeks old. While this year's Wrestlemania is no surprise as that event usually shows up in these lists throughout the year.
