And thats just within 24 hours. Others struggled to break past the 50k - 70k mark.

If that doesn't show the power of the Indian market, nothing will.

Maybe WWE went about this all wrong, and instead of Jinder they should be signing Kavita and pushing her as the RAW womens champion. Judging by the comments the Indians are 100% behind this girl, unlike their reaction when heel Jinder cheated to win his title defences.

Ha, that's nothing. Tanayra Conti won the poll of all 32 competitors on WWE.com.

Screw India. Brazil is where it's at.

1.2m views and climbing is worth a lot more than a random poll with less than 10k people voting.

India and China are the future. WWE botched the Jinder run by having him be a heel and cheat his way to winning. Indians will never support that since they take kayfabe very seriously. Instead of representing them proudly, they view Jinder as disgracing their nation in front of the world.

WWE have a new chance with this new girl. From what I see she is pretty green and needs practice but the potentially huge drawing ability is there Hope they don't repeat the same mistakes when she inevitably gets pushed to the top.

Bud, I was joking. I don't really care either way.

She has star written all over her. Great presence. She knows how to work the crowd. She,s one of very few that would look legit against Asuka. She needs to replace Nia as the monster in the womens division

Kavita came off really awkward, she stood around way too much posing and just doing nothing but tossing Dakota around, also her attire looked like a cheap Mortal Kombat costume you'd find at dollar general store for 5$. Lol when they said she was trained by Khali i thought they was joking, Khali has no idea how to wrestle, he has like 2 moves and can barely walk, the guy has no business trying to teach anyone how to do anything in the ring.

Anyways Dakota is clearly the better talent between the two, and she has a big fanbase from the indies.

Dakota Kai is fucking awesome tbh. She's hot, bright and colourful and not booked like a child. She's like the finished model where Bayley was the rough-built prototype. I'd push her.

Cool for her but it hasn't translated to network views the same way. Most watched shows on demand as of Saturday with episode 3 ranking third and episode four with Hojo/sane being most watched



The Indian and Chinese markets could potentially be massive (NBA and yao Ming) however there is more to it than just pushing a native or making someone a babyface. Tna pushed shera as a super babyface along with his own dance and it flopped spectacularly.

Unless WWE can somehow manage to turn those India youtube views into money it doesn't matter. Of course they are clicking, it's free. Put it behind a paywall and they'll just go find a free link.

Doesn't matter. There is no ''power of the Indian market'' as long as they're getting free PPVs and shunning the network. YouTube views aren't going to secure WWE their TV rights deal in 2019.

Came in here to say just that.
Until we see some numbers proving how much money the Indians put into live events, merchandise, PPV´s (or WWE Network), it doesn´t really matter if there´s 1.2 Billion or whatever of them.
Twitter/Facebook/Youtube/Instagram means jack, since it´s all free.

Youtube views mean almost nothing, just shows there is some interest. That kind of stuff is free as long as you have a internet source. What matters is finding someone that they are willing to buy the network for, and support them by buying their merchandise, now that is a hell of a lot harder.
