Special Events, Debut Episodes Top MLW And NWA's Top Viewed Youtube Videos Of 2019

Our look at Youtube in wrestling, how it drew and how it performed in totality in 2019 continues with a look at two fairly independent, but visual companies in MLW and NWA.


NJPW Road To Destruction Results (9/26): Just Five Guys Is Now Just Four Guys

MLW has a presence on BeIN Sports, and a cult following, with their entire program airing on a delay on Youtube. This has resulted in pretty definitive numbers as it pertains to which shows gain the most interest, by far being their "special events." Of the top 8 videos all-time on their channel, five are Battle Riot or War Games/War Chamber events or matches.

  1. 2019 Battle Riot (219k)
  2. War Chamber 2019 (120k)
  3. Kings of Colosseum (114k)
  4. MLW Superfight (101k)
  5. Intimidation Games (91k)
  6. MLW Fusion Ep 50 (90k) LA Park v. Mance Warner
  7. Von Erichs visit the Sportatorium grounds (89k)
  8. MLW Fusion Ep 61 (83k) MJF vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr.
  9. MLW Fusion Ep 78 (79k) Brian Pillman Jr. vs. Austin Aries
  10. MLW Fusion Ep 68 (77k) Von Eichs vs. CONTRA


NWA Powerrr emerged on the scene in 2019, after the Ten Pounds of Gold series already had a steady following for almost two years. Early episodes drew more viewers than others, though outside of the top 5, that starts to switch up a little bit.
