WWE Raw YouTube rankings (Jan. 25, 2016): The Rock's return brings the hits

This past Monday night's episode of Raw took place on Jan. 25 in Miami, Florida. It's been a few weeks since we've checked in on the YouTube view counts for videos coming out of the show, and what better edition to return for than one that saw The Rock make his way back to WWE? So let's take a look at the rankings.

Here they are (with view counts as of this writing):

1. The Rock and The Usos lay the smackdown on The New Day (2,613,951)
2. Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose vs. Sheamus & Rusev (1,909,467)
3. The Rock returns to Raw (1,378,828)
4. The McMahon Family celebrates Triple H's Royal Rumble win (1,344,478)
5. AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho (1,329,220)
6. Flo Rida battle raps Bo Rida (599,044)
7. Kalisto vs. The Miz (581,113)
8. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kevin Owens (469,554)
9. AJ Styles introduces himself to the WWE Universe (437,306)
10. Dudley Boyz vs. Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel (413,248)
11. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks (345,279)
12. Natalya & Paige vs. Brie Bella & Alicia Fox (317,061)
13. Goldust and R-Truth have a misunderstanding (270,237)

WWE initially uploaded a Rock return video and it was getting big play before they inexplicably took it down and posted a new one. That explains why his return is third here with a lower view count than you would expect. The other video they put up at the same time, conversely, is tops with a strong 2.6 million views.

Reigns in the main event continues to be a big draw with no sign of that changing.

How about AJ Styles in the top five of a show that featured The Rock returning? Meanwhile, wacky comedy between lower card characters is, once again, the worst drawing video while the Divas continue to struggle relative to everything else.

Not much has changed at all.
