It would appear that Rush in Ring of Honor has at least been a success digitally.
The former ROH World Champion took the top two spots in the company's most viewed Youtube moments of this year. That's not exactly saying a lot, as despite a solid subscriber count of 418,000, ROH didn't have a single current video hit 265,000.
Below is the full top 6 list, from moments that happened in 2019.
- Rush vs. Matt Taven (full ROH Title Match) (261k)
- Rush vs. Bandido (150k)
- Lifeblood forms (119k)
- Allure vs. Jenny Rose & Kelly Klein vignette (87k)
- Ladder match set for G1 Supercard (82k)
- Lifeblood challenges Jay Lethal (56k)
Much like New Japan, ROH doesn't post a lot of current match footage, instead relying on promos that are filmed outside the setting of the ring. In fact, the two matches that topped the list were actually posted months, if not weeks after they actually happened as "throwback videos."
Twelve of Ring of Honor's top 15 videos of all time come from the Women of Honor division, two feature Kevin Owens, and the other shows current WWE talent Maria Kanellis in the thumbnail. However, this year, only one Women of Honor moment cracked the top list, and none had more than 90,000 views.
All in all, it was a miserable year for Ring of Honor's Youtube presence.
