One million views is nothing to sneeze at, especially considering the nature of WWE Mixed Match Challenge and the fact people will always be able to click on the video and watch Finn Balor and Sasha Banks take on Natalya and Shinsuke Nakamura. The match was great and they pulled out all the stops, although we could use more Balor vs Nakamura that might be best suited for another time when they can really stretch their legs.
We’re not going to spoil anything here, but the match ended decently and kept up the action throughout, therefore, at least it made sense in that respect. But whether this was “canon” or not is beside the point. The fact is WWE Mixed Match Challenge did very well.
Having Beth Phoenix on commentary was also a real treat and her reaction to the show was pretty great as well.
Although we’re not sure what WWE or Facebook’s expectations for the show were, the first show had around 10,100 shares as of the next morning and around 84,500 comments. With 1,039,661 views so far these numbers are looking pretty good.
The first episode also had around 50,000 “likes”, 22,000 “loves”, 3,000 “laughing”, 2,400 “shocked”, 1,400 “angry”, and “512” sad reactions as well. With around 80,000 reactions in total, WWE Mixed Match Challenge certainly engaged people.
Of course, those numbers are certain to only keep growing as more people discover the show and get around to watching The Boss Club take on Nattie & Nakamura. All in all, I would venture to assume that both WWE and Facebook should be pretty pleased with this response.
