Enzo is a draw for 205 Live

Quote:
When Enzo Amore made his way to the 205 Live roster, still as a babyface, the crowd still seemed to be on-board with Amore.

Like him or not, the guy gets a reaction every time he comes out. Not to mention, he’s arguably one of the best of the microphone today.

Recently, Enzo turned heel, low-blowing Neville and then solidifying his place as a heel on 205 Live days later. My first reaction to Amore winning the Cruiserweight title wasn’t great. However, upon watching him turn himself into a ‘chicken-bleep heel’, he really has grown on me. And it seems as if the rest of the audience concurs.

At least for right now, Enzo Amore is a draw for 205 Live.

According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer (subscription need), the 205 Live episode for September 26th was among the top 10 most-watched shows on the WWE Network – ranked 7th.


Previously, according to Meltzer, 205 Live was ranking around the same spot as NXT, which usually hangs around the number 14 spot on most-watched shows. As well as normally loosing to NXT, the 205 Live shows are also usually beaten by WrestleMania’s on a weekly basis – ‘Mania shows usually rank around the number 10 spot.

At 7th, 205 Live is finally out-ranking NXT and WrestleMania events. And it’s all down to Enzo.

If you can’t remember the September 26th edition of 205 Live, or simply didn’t watch, the show heavily featured Amore, from start to finish. And it was the first show following his Cruiserweight title victory.

So it looks like Enzo is drawing.

Re: Enzo is a draw for 205 Live



Anyone using logic instead of blind outrage saw this coming. Yeah, Enzo sucks at wrestling, and? No one watched when there was good wrestling. Now, they have a character people care about, and they're getting more viewers. Go figure.

But I thought ring work was the draw, isn't that why people been begging for Cesaro to be champ the last 4 years?

Re: Enzo is a draw for 205 Live

It's regularly in the top 10 most viewed programs on the network.

Quote:
Once again, I have to post this because false information is being spread. Even now, not only is this week's 205 Live in the top 5, but last week's is still in the top 20: http://network.wwe.com/search/most-popular
This is a repost but necessary:

"I'd like to point out for the record that this is not entirely true. I am Steve Coulson, former contributor to WWENetworkNews.com and during my time with that site, along with WrestlingDVDNetwork.com among others I tracked the system.

During that time, the Observer among other sites would be mistaken and I'd email them corrections, which would then be fixed in most cases. This is a situation where WOR is incorrect. CWC did indeed beat NXT many times, that is correct. NXT beats 205 Live nearly all the time, that is also correct. However when they said it wasn't in the top 20 for that "week", that isn't how it works.

The Top 20 system is typically updated Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Sometimes it won't be refreshed for a day or two. During these occasions, shows that aired in the past day will not appear on the top 20 list. For example, when I would do a Top 20 article on a Thursday, sometimes they did not refresh it that day so NXT would not be listed. This isn't because NXT didn't make the top 20, as you'd see older episodes still appear.

Regardless of the opinion on 205 Live, it is almost always in the top 5 most watched shows for a few days after release alongside Talking Smack, NXT, and either original content or a PPV. It almost always stays within the top 10 or top 20 until the next episode appears, and sometimes multiple episodes will be listed.

Again, the point of CWC being more popular than even NXT is factual, as is NXT being more popular than 205 Live. However I thought it was important to clear things up as things aren't as dire as they appear."

Enzo and Gulak are the best things about the division. Glad 205 live are getting some viewers back.
