AEW made some big signings that are kicking up some big buzz for them.
The company launched in 2019, and plucked a fresh Jon Moxley from WWE, and Kenny Omega from New Japan. Coupled with many other familiar faces, AEW had a steady digital footprint when it came to Youtube.
The top segment saw The Elite, The Inner Circle, MJF, Jon Moxley, all brawl to end the go-home episode of AEW Dynamite that led to Full Gear.
These numbers are a little bit different from any other promotion we've covered, as show clips are posted to AEW, B/R Live and TNT's channel. We have not added the view counts cross-brand, instead only relying on individual video view counts.
You can see the top 10 clip listing below.
- Full Gear Go-Home Segment (5.4M AEW)
- Cody asks Dustin to be his partner (3.5m B/R Live)
- End of Moxley vs Pac; Omega & Hangman (2.5M AEW)
- Moxley drops Pac in tag match against Omega (2.49M AEW)
- Jake Hager's debut (2.4M TNT)
- Moxley puts Omega through a glass table (2.2M TNT)
- Casino Battle Royal Double or Nothing (1.6M B/R Live)
- Crazy ending to Moxley vs. Spears (1.5M AEW)
- Orange Cassidy at Double or Nothing (1.2M B/R Live)
- Aja Kong confronts Awesome Kong (1.1M B/R Live)
An interesting trend that was noticed was that all three of AEW's top viewed videos featured Jon Moxley in the thumbnail, while three of the top four had Kenny Omega, and ALL of the top four featured one of those two or PAC.
Also worth noting that the "Backstage at Double or Nothing" episode of Being the Elite garnered 1.1M views on their own channel, being the first video of theirs to hit that mark. On the "Nightmare Family" channel, Road to Double or Nothing Episode 15 landed at 995,000 views. As of now, that's the only episode on that channel to hit 450,000.
The first two episodes of AEW Dark have hit one million views, while an online exclusive of Cody vs. a child dressed as Orange Cassidy has 1.1M views as well.
