Viewership for This Week's Mixed Match Challenge Rises, Next Week
Wednesday, February 7, 2018
Viewership for this week's edition of WWE's Mixed Match Challenge saw a significant increase in live viewership.
The show peaked at around 77,700 live viewers right at the conclusion of the match between Jimmy Uso & Naomi taking on Goldust & Mandy Rose with Daniel Bryan as the special referee. Viewership dropped immediately after the match ended, despite Rusev & Lana coming out for a promo to plug their match against Bayley & Elias on next week's show.
The episode was up 25% from last week's show featuring Braun Strowman & Alexa Bliss defeating Sami Zayn & Becky Lynch, which peaked at 62,400 and had the lowest live viewership of the season so far. The highest live viewership of the season remains to be the premiere episode, which peaked at 135,600 live viewers and topped tonight's show by 76%.
As noted, next week's match will see the husband & wife team of Rusev & Lana facing Elias & Bayley. Below is the announcement on next week's match:
