Wow, look at all that UScore font - is this moving to FOX Sports or something? (BREAKING NEWS YOU WILL ONLY READ ON CLICKBAITWRESTLINGDOTCOM: RAW MOVING TO FOX SPORTS 1? CLICK HERE FOR THE EVIDENCE!)



1. (1) WWE Extreme Rules 2014
2. (5) Legends' House: Viva Las Vegas
3. (7) RAW Pre-Show
4. NEW WrestleMania Rewind
5. (9) WWE Countdown: Greatest Villians
6. NEW WWE Extreme Rules 2014 Fallout
7. (10) WWE Main Event
8. NEW ECW Hardcore TV
9. (8) WWE NXT
10. (6) WrestleMania XXX

NOTES:
Last week's WrestleMania Rewind was IV (Savage/DiBiase) and aired right after Main Event...but scored higher on the list than ME. Do WWE Network fans remain hungry for anything Randy Savage?

Interesting to see Fallout crack the list after not making it during the PPV week..although it did air in the live stream following RAW Backstage Pass...which would mean more if RAW Backstage Pass made the list; it did not - ah, it also aired in prime time on Wednesday after a PPV encore, which probably helps account for both shows' placement on this week's list. And it was probably helped with a lot of people saying "you gotta check out see (x)'s press conference" but who is (x)? Big E? Bad News Barrett? Wyatts? Shield? Somebody else? Does WWE, knowing something here caught people's attention, capitalize on it? Or do they just dismiss this as favorable placement during the live stream and nothing extraordinary?

Interesting to see ECW Hardcore TV make a debut - too bad they didn't tell us WHICH one it was! I tried to scan through their schedule last week to see if any notable episodes aired during the live stream last week and don't think it was the mention of Dean Malenko that got folks interested, but September 1994 WAS historically significant, with the change from Eastern to Extreme... Did anybody see any "man, you've got to go see this episode of Hardcore TV because it's got..." posts on the sites of record or on Twitter?

(Also, is there a good place to find an archive of the WWE Network live streaming schedule beyond Meltzer's site, since they aggravatingly don't seem to post it EVERY day despite what it feels like when I'm following them on Twitter? I ended up going to - shudder - prowrestling.net.)

Legends' House is still doing well but the interest in encores appears to have waned. We'll have to see if this trend continues or if any particularly outrageous clips would drive hits to future episodes after their original air week.

WM XXX (or WM 30 depending on what week it is) has real staying power, although I am starting to suspect it's only Paul Heyman repeatedly watching his client, Brock Lesnar, conquering The Undertaker's undefeated streak at WrestleMania. After perusing the schedule, this is the only entry we can be 100% sure wasn't represented by an airing in the live stream.

I didn't see the RAW Preshow last week but it sure looks like they wanted to drive some folks to it this week with Sandow's bit. Let's see if it works if they give us this slide NEXT week.

That's all I got.

My thoughts from the thread that didn't get merged

The only reason I want to talk about the list though is because ECW Hardcore TV made the list. I guess the only real surprise is that it didn't make the list until now since it is being all lumped together as one.

Which makes me wonder how they figure old PPV views. WCW PPV would be a regular on there, but maybe they break it up by PPV like Starcade, but you would think something like WrestleMania Collection would always be up there too, so maybe PPVs are just by show and by year.

So maybe shows just count for shows as a whole which is still weird that ECW hasn't made the list prior and funny because Retro Raw and Retro Smackdown still aren't on the list.

Things influencing this week's lineup would include the "NWA Tournament" ECW episode finally appearing, and the first Eddie/Malenko ECW match.

Based on Twitter chatter I fully expect Clash of the Champions (XIX) to be somewhere on the list next week.

Or, they aren't grouping all episodes of a show together, and there was one particular episode of Hardcore TV that did well, and they just neglected to specify which one.

Would this be what you're looking for? (reddit.com). It even has direct links to the videos.

Backstage Pass not making it and Extreme Rules Fallout only making it a week later suggests two things: 1) strong word-of-mouth on boards like this and other places (twitter, reddit, etc.) can draw enough attention to a non-"new" show on the Network to move the needle and 2) nobody has the strength to keep watching after three hours of Raw or three-plus hours of PPV.

Countdown made a healthy jump up the list (and was the surprise entrant last week), so people are looking for "new" programming. Main Event jumped three spots and overtook NXT...this is the Main Event sold with Cena's statement on the Wyatts, right? Notable from either a "the list is worked" or "the list is real" perspective.

    If they are goosing these numbers, if not outright totally working them, I think it would benefit them to throw in something kind of random next week to see the response. Like, in the "What Did You Juast Watch?" thread, the first real Extreme Championship Wrestling episode being up was mentioned. So why not make #4 "ECW Hardcore TV #72" and have Cole say "Wow, King, people were really flocking to that vintage ECW episode!"
They are learning! Though not so much that they put in the episode number (Legends House and Countdown are segmented out by specific episodes, which means they have the capability to do so for any show), which makes me think this is following the "someone let them know we have ECW shows on here!" thought process. That they didn't bring up ECW being on there (but did have the same "WRESLEMANIA XXX IS STILL ON THERE, MAGGLE!" exchange) reinforces my thoughts that they aren't giving the three of them any talking points yet, which they might want to change if they are experimenting. My next suggestion in that thread was throwing an old, random WCW PPV in the mix, so let's see if I'm at all on the right path, and if they think to add Payback 2013 to the mix as we get closer to the next PPV.

Any reason why Clash XIX, both in terms of why that one and how much & who was talking about it? If it did show up (or if another outlier does), I'd be curious enough to see who and where talk started.

In that case, I'm almost certain it's ECW Hardcore TV #72 (finals of the NWA Tourney).
