10 Most Popular WWE Matches On YouTube

You won't believe what millions have been watching on WWE's YouTube channel.

We live in a world where R-Truth matches have more views than several WWE classics.

That's not meant as a dig at Truth himself. He's great, but the stalwart star definitely benefitted from sharing the ring with some of the biggest names in the biz. The same goes for lumbering giant The Great Khali. He pops up twice on this list, which might surprise a fair few fans. To sum it up: WWE knows how to put eyeballs on their YouTube channel and maximise interest using just one thumbnail image.

That's also why they clip the hell out of Raw, SmackDown and NXT every single week. The promotion used to exclusively upload ancient bouts or cutting room floor promos from TV, but they've become more comfortable with the thought of repping modern-day PLE blockbusters or up-to-the-minute moments from the weeklies.

Why not? YouTube and social media numbers count for a lot today. To keep things busy, WWE likes to upload full matches from the archives to their channel too. That's the focus here - those full bouts with the most views at time of writing. The earliest videos were uploaded a whopping 10 years ago.

Here's what YouTube's wrestling crowd has been watching...

10. Men’s 2018 Elimination Chamber

Event: Elimination Chamber 2018

Uploaded: 4 years ago

Views: 143m

One thing you'll notice straight away perusing this collection is that fans scouring YouTube bloody love a multi-man match. Of the 10, only 3 are singles bouts (and one of those was a curiously unique side show!). Elimination Chamber 2018 comes bottom here with "only" 143 million views to date.


That's still some number. An awful lot of people clicked to see Roman Reigns defeat Braun Strowman, John Cena, The Miz, Elias, Finn Bálor and Seth Rollins to bag a Universal Title shot vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34. The full clip comes in at just over 42 minutes, so there's a lot to enjoy.

Keep in mind that this was peak Roman struggles too. He wasn't quite the 'Tribal Chief', and heard a ton of boos whenever he hit the ring. Vince McMahon was still pushing Reigns hard in spite of his audience, but the old boss would point to numbers like 143m as proof it worked.
