WWE's Extreme Rules is tonight, as the WWE's 'New Era' hopes to pick up some steam, with some major potential returns to the show on the horizon. Those can't come soon enough, as the WWE's Youtube numbers for last week's Raw fell flat.
For the first time in a long time, nobody involved in the main event angle -- Roman Reigns, AJ Styles, The Usos, Karl Anderson or Doc Gallows were in the top two performing segments on the show. Instead, they claimed the numbers 3 & 4 of 12 on the list.
Instead, Dean Ambrose challenging Chris Jericho took the top spot. Perhaps more surprising was that the Natalya - Charlotte contract signing earned over one million views and the number two slot, which is much higher than women's segments usually get on Raw.
The rushed angle of Dana Brooke vs. Becky Lynch, and the not so rushed angle of The Golden Truth were the bottom two segments on the show. The often well-performing Big Cass finished in the bottom half for his match with D-Von Dudley as well.
All in all, the main event angle numbers were down significantly, as it's the first time that no combination of The Family or The Club landed at over 2 million views. None of their angles were able to manage one million this week.
