WWE Reportedly Unhappy with Mixed Match Challenge Viewership
According to Dave Meltzer in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE officials are reportedly upset and unhappy on the viewership numbers of Mixed Match Challenge on Facebook Watch. They were reportedly very unhappy with the decline in viewership in Week 2, which for the live show, dropped about 32% from the premiere episode (from a peak of about 132,600 viewers for Week 1 to 92,000 for Week 2).
There was even a higher drop in live viewership during Week 3 in which we saw Braun Strowman and RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss defeat Sami Zayn and Becky Lynch. The show peaked at around 62,400 viewers, in which we saw a decline of 54% from the premiere episode and 32% from Week 2.
Despite the decline in live viewership, the number of total views has not dropped as much percentage-wise from Week 1. Thus far, the premiere episode has drawn 1.9 million views after 18 days (Finn Balor & Sasha Banks defeating Shinsuke Nakamura & Natalya), Week 2 has drawn 1.7 million views after 11 days (Intercontinental Champion The Miz & Asuka defeating Big E & Carmella), and Week 3 has drawn 1.6 million views after 4 days (Braun Strowman & RAW Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss defeating Sami Zayn & Becky Lynch).
