MOST WATCHED SHOWS
LAST WEEK ON NETWORK
1. Extreme Rules 2014
2. Extreme Rules Kickoff
3. Legends' House: Striking Out
4. Extreme Rules 2014 Fallout
5. Legends' House: The Cart Before The Horse
6. WrestleMania 30
7. RAW Pre-Show
8. WWE NXT
9. WWE Countdown: Greatest Tag Teams
10. WWE Main Event

Proofreading fun of the week - the apostrophe is correctly included in "Legends' House!" Episode numbers have been replaced with titles - I'm assuming #3 is the new episode (3), whilst #5 is last week's episode (2). Please jump on correcting me if I'm wrong.

Also, sometimes it's "Extreme Rules 2014" except when it's just "Extreme Rules."

WM XXX is hanging on - last week #4, this week #6 - again I wonder just how much of it has to be viewed to contribute to the "watched" numbers...just starting the stream, or more than that? Probably NOT the entire four hours.

Dropping out from last week: Legends' House Episode 1 (#3 last week), RAW Backstage Pass (#5), Slam City (#7), Hall of Fame (#8) and Warrior: The Ultimate Legend (#9). Of course, we had three PPV-related shows to squeeze into the list this week.

Non-WM Repeats from last week: RAW Pre-show fell from #2 to #7 - I guess since everybody who had the network watched the PPV, why bother with a RAW preshow? - Legends' House Ep 2 fell from #1 to #5, Main Event fell from #6 to #10, NXT was UP from #10 to #8.

How'd Dr Unlikely do predicting this slide? He got the top 3, albeit switching #2 and #3 - never understimate the power of a minis match! He got 8 of 10 on the list.

I may have more later but I need to get OUTTA here

I consider my predictions a total failure, since I was certain Slam City would get the "people sure love Slam City, King!" push this week (operating under the idea that this is a worked list) and had Countdown on my list originally since it's the only other "new" content on there, but took it off at the last minute. Maybe this means they aren't paying for more Slam City?

Thoughts on the worked vs. shoot nature of the list this week: they had a brief, seemingly off-the-cuff exchange about Wrestlemania still being on there when they showed the list, which doesn't mean it isn't worked, but could mean that the three of them aren't given talking points for the list beyond "talk about the Network, Cole".

Also, I highly recommend Extreme Rules Fallout for anybody who didn't watch it. I bailed after the show, but went back and watched it the next day. After the stuff at the desk, it goes into a strange series of sit-down press conferences (in the mold of SportsCenter coverage for post NBA finals/NFL playoff games), complete with off screen "reporters" calling out questions, with most of the major players in character but pretty clearly working without scripts. Bryan is much better in this format, Big E is great doing the "pissed off losing athlete" heel turn tease and Barrett is fantastic and shows off what a Face Bad News Barrett would look like. I mean, the idea is really weird, but I hope they keep doing things like this to experiment and let the genuinely charismatic guys show it off. I'd be particularly interested to see the Usos and Ryback in this format.

Yeah, I watched it well after the show too. Man, Big E was amazing. Where has this personality been? It's worth the watch just to see him but all of the other interviews were pretty good too.

They did one of these after WrestleMania, too, but the format was much more stilted and they hadn't quite figured out exactly how "shooty" they wanted it to be - this one was much better. I sat through almost the whole thing after the show waiting to see Barrett. It wasn't quite what I expected, but like you said, it was a neat experimentation. I think my favorite might have been the Wyatts, with Bray knocking over the mic, Harper tossing the table, and Rowan looking genuinely upset that they didn't leave anything for him to do, so he just shoots a look at Harper and walks off camera.
