- Well, so much for "this feud isn't delivering". All it took - and who could possibly have seen this coming - was Rousey getting active and coming out on top of a physical confrontation, and people are reacting to that so much that it's already past four million on YouTube.

- Otherwise the prospect of Money In The Bank itself is good enough as a draw with both the opening segments overachieving what they might have done. The debate over the last few weeks about Reigns and Rollins shows more signs of coming down on the former's side, especially as come Wednesday Reigns-Singh has opened the gap by another 100k or so...

- ...but both of those have been overtaken into fourth place already by the Lashley obstacle course! Maybe people have really fond memories of NXT season one. This angle, once LOLTRANSVESTITISM was out of the way, had been declining badly in the view counts but military netting equals money, apparently. Meanwhile the Fatal 4-Way has not only passed that opening promo for views, it's more than 140k clear (1.58m to 1.44m)

- A really bad week for SmackDown with none of the 'dream matches' hitting as much as an especially meaningless over(wo)manned tag match. Although Shelton hasn't done well since his return the performance of Bryan's match is particularly bad, and with Cass' promos still bottoming out - it was the least watched segment on Facebook - it really doesn't feel like people appreciate this seeming dead end being Daniel's direction right after his return. Meanwhile, long-term readers will appreciate the irony of how out of all the matches on SmackDown the one that earned the most YouTube views was Samoa Joe vs Rusev. Maybe it was the pancakes.

- Two very interesting view counts that didn't qualify for this rundown - the YouTube exclusive clip of Baron Corbin having his head shaved before Raw was on 471k, and the WWE NOW video advertising the New Day vs the Elite event was just under the six figure mark within six hours, overtaking not just Cass but every Fallout video and the rest of 205 Live. Now who's the big draw?
