As previously reported, the numbers for the Mixed Match Challenge fell extremely short of expectations on week one. Unfortunately for the WWE, things have gone from bad to worse. Here are the peak live viewership peak numbers for the first three weeks:
Episode 1: 135,600
Episode 2: 91,900
Episode 3: 62,400
As per usual, Dave Meltzer claims to have a story about the matter, by simply stating the OBVIOUS. Meltzer stated:
“Even before this week’s numbers came in, we had heard they were very unhappy about the huge drop from week one to week two and key people were already souring on it.”
I think you’ll agree, this is as obvious as someone stating the sky is Blue and that Vince McMahon likes Roman Reigns. We’ve previously mentioned that Dave Meltzer no longer has any sources within the WWE, therefore, stating the absolute obvious and guesswork, is probably the best you’re going to get from him.
