If there was any doubt, it's pretty clear now the Braun Strowman project is working for WWE.
Strowman drew over 1.1 million Youtube views in under a day for his main event clash Big Show, who has been used on WWE TV sparingly since last year's draft. This is a giant success for the WWE, who have programmed Strowman in a big match with Roman Reigns at Fastlane.
Kevin Owens and Brock Lesnar saw promos perform well on the show, as did Bayley. Virtually everything else on the show landed about where is usually does, outside of underwhelming numbers for Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte.
